    This week on Epic
    Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/bridge-constructor-the-walking-dead
    I haven't downloaded it yet, but for some reason the previews remind me of an old game I played on my Apple IIGS called "Lemmings".


    Also as a double "Ironcast"

    I picked them up, but I haven't even downloaded them yet. I've got a new job working 7am-4pm, but I'm NOT a morning person. The hours are really screwing with my sleep because I'm a night owl, and I'm having trouble adjusting. In a few months when I'm no longer a trainee I might be able to move to another shift, but they have staggered overlapping shifts with a guy coming in every hour from 7-10 with two guys coming in at 8. One of us is going to be doing a 12pm-9pm shift, and frankly I wouldn't mind taking that instead of getting up so early.

    I saw that and it looked completely uninteresting to me. Are you going to get it?

    I probably will because it is free, but I don't think I'll be playing in the next week. I promised to help my mother weed her yard when it cools down since she had knee surgery last year, and it was in the 70's today after being in the upper 80's or '90s all week.

    GoG is offering Ultima Underworld and Syndicate for free until September.
    https://www.gog.com/promo/rerelease...e?pp=632667547e7cd3e0466547863e1207a8c0c0c549


    This week's offering on epic:
    A Plague Tale: Innocence
    Minit
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/minit
    Looks to me like an old Mac game. As in one that you would play on a Macintosh Plus, SE or Classic.

    Should have posted this earlier, Rebel Galaxy is free on Epic until Thursday.
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/rebel-galaxy
    Also it looks like they have slightly shuffled their lineup of semi-permanent free games.
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/free-games


    Finally, of note is that some people on other boards have been comparing Rebel Galaxy to this free game:
    https://endless-sky.github.io/
    also found on Steam

    Well, the new Epic games this week are Void Bastards and Yooka-Laylee. I haven't ever heard of either, and need to free up some hard drive space before I'll give them a go, but I'll grab them as they are free this week. Besides it's supposed to be 88 degrees and rainy this weekend, and I'm working at a hospital now (I'm in IT-FS, I go everywhere they have computers, which is almost everywhere) and seeing a number of COVID cases.

    This week on Epic, "Saint's Row" and "Automachef"

    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/saints-row-the-third-remastered
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/automachef
    Also Google has been putting out a free web-based game by clicking on their logo.
    The graphics look like something from the SNES, and it's a sports game where you have to compete in various events.
    I'm not sure if it is an original, or a recycled SNES, Turbo Graphics 16, or Sega [Genesis] game.
    I had a bit of deja vu when playing it, but I can't place the game and it doesn't give a name.
    I thought it might have been an adaptation of California Games, but I looked that up (never owned it, but a friend did back in 5th grade) and they have different events.
    **EDIT**
    The game can still be found here:
    https://www.google.com/doodles/doodle-champion-island-games-august-30
    and and offline version here:

    This week free on epic is "Yoku's Island Express", seems to be some kind of pinball game, with a unique twist. Havn't tried it yet, I need to free up some hard drive space, but the previews on the link below look like a unique take on pinball games. Pinball games aren't new, nor are pinball games where you can reach multiple level. Heck, I had a pinball game on the Intelivision back in the early 1980's with three levels you reached by making achievements on the current level and getting the ball into the now-active cup. However, I haven't seen it combined with another genre like this.

    Also if you missed it before on Epic, Surviving Mars is free on Steam right now.
