Epic Games will be featuring Oxenfree free later this month on the Epic Games Store as their next free title. Oxenfree is an indie adventure game about a group of friends journeying to a strange island for a party, only to be caught up in some strange time-warp style events. Oxenfree features branching paths and is the sort of game that can only really be appreciated by multiple playthroughs. You can check out a trailer for the game down below:

Oxenfree will be available from March 21st - April 4th and will mark the 8th free game Epic have made available for the new Epic Store. Currently available on the store for free is Slime Rancher a game about farming (or ranching?) slimes on a strange world in deep space. So far the Epic Store free games have been a pretty solid mix of indie hit title which may have been passed over by gamers who usually stick to triple-A titles.

Here's what we've got from them so far:

 

SubnauticaA survival game about surviving on a harsh alien world by diving into the sea and building a base there.

Super Meat Boy - A tough-as-nails platformer which arguably helped to start the modern indie boom.

 

What Remains of Edith Finch - A walking simulator game in which you must explore an old house to discover the truth about the Finch family.

The Jackbox Party Pack  - A pack of party games which can be controlled via tablets and mobile phones, meaning multiple people can get in on the fun.

Axiom Verge - A retro-style Metroidvania heavily inspired by the classic Metroid game series.

Thimbleweed Park - A classic style adventure game which puts you in charge of solving a mystery.

 

 

If you're interested in getting your hands on Slime Rancher or Oxenfree for free you can download the Epic Store right now!
