As per usual for the last few days, it is time to report on the latest free offerings from Epic Games Store. Hyper Light Drifter was teased yesterday when Faster Than Light was available at the time. Hyper Light Drifter is an action-adventure title with several accolades under its belt for its unique storytelling and innovative use of colors. This one is not to miss for people who admire indie gems and artistic masterpieces. The offer stands till tomorrow, and another game will replace it.

Echoes of a dark and violent past resonate throughout a savage land, steeped in treasure and blood. Hyper Light Drifter is an action-adventure RPG in the vein of the best 16­bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.

  • From each character to subtle background elements, everything is lovingly hand-animated.
  • Easy to pick up, difficult to master; enemies are vicious and numerous, hazards will easily crush your frail body, and friendly faces remain rare.
  • Upgrade weapons, learn new skills, discover equipment and traverse a dark, detailed world with branching paths and secrets abound.

For those still holding on and hoping Epic Games Store will deliver their favorite title in one of those free days, this one might be for you. The upcoming title is already being teased with an image of what looks similar to a warrior's helmet and a skull, suggesting it is probably Shadow Tactics. The latter is a tactics and strategy game from developer Mimimi Productions and publisher Daedalic Entertainment, where players experience Japan during its Edo period. It is definitely for fans of stealth, real-time strategy titles, and tactical espionage.

What game are you hoping Epic Games offer next in their 12 Days of Free Games?
