The Fall is free on the Epic Games Store, Creature in the Well is next

The Fall is free on the Epic Games Store this week.

The Fall features story, puzzles, and tense action.

In it you play ARID, the AI onboard a mark-7 combat suit. The human pilot encased within the suit is unconscious, so you must find a way to follow protocol and save his life.

Next week, the free game will be the top-down, pinball-inspired, hack-and-slash dungeon crawler Creature in the Well.

In it, you are the last remaining BOT-C unit that will need to venture into a desert mountain to restore power to an ancient facility, haunted by a Creature. The ultimate goal is to uncover and upgrade powerful gear in order to free the city of Mirage from a deadly sandstorm.

Here’s more:

  • Pinball with swords: Charge up energy orbs, then bounce and ricochet them to reactivate dormant machinery and stop the sandstorm.
  • Defeat the Creature: Escape the many challenges set by the Creature and confront it in intricate, skillful battles.
  • Dungeon-crawler: Delve deeper into the mountain as you unlock eight hand-crafted dungeons, each filled with unique gameplay themes, unlockables, and secrets to uncover.
  • Over 20 unique items: Customize your playstyle with upgradeable weapons and clothing that change how you play the game.

Last week’s free game was Surviving Mars which is back in development.
