    This week on Epic
    First is a sort of gimmie where they are giving $15 worth of in-game purchases for "Antstream Aracade". Funny how it doesn't list the titles on their page and the few it does list aren't ones I've heard of. Anyways, you get the Antstream Epic Welcome Pack for free this week.
    The Antstream Arcade page only says


    Next is "The Hunter, Call of the Wild" Sounds like a Jack London novel.
    I'm just going to copy/paste from Epic's page.

    Odd. I just opened the site in Chrome, which I only have installed for work (and I lost that job thanks to COVID) and the other two items under "incidentals" other than "Site News" namely "Al Harrington's Internet Bargains" the "Site Suggestions and Tech Issues" and the "Staff Communication" subforum are the only things members only AFAIKT.
    Sorry, I didn't realize that it was members-only.

    They are saying on SB that Steam is giving away something called "Box: The Game" a puzzle game until the 6th.

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/879850/Box_The_Game/?snr=1_5_1100__1100
    Note that I could not get the "Add to account" to work in Firefox, I had to open the Steam app click on the "Store" button, search for "Box the Game" and add it from within the Steam app.

    P.S. Maybe somebody could start another thread to rec some free games from Steam, especially RPG's since most people here like games like Icewind Dale? There's a lot of drek on Steam.

    Steam is offering "Call of the Gunslinger" until Dec14. I've never played it, but several other boards have positive replies about it.

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/204450/Call_of_Juarez_Gunslinger/?snr=1_5_1100__1100


    Also this week on Epic
    If you missed Prison Architect on GoG last year, you can get it for free this year with a single DLC (easy to miss the latter) this week on Epic.
    They are doing a double-feature, with "Godfall Challenger Edition", but the reviews are saying "Challenger Edition" is a stripped down version that is one step above a demo. They removed the single-player campaign for the "challenger edition." It actually reminds me of some older games with netplay features where you could install it on multiple computers but required the CD to play the single-player version, with the ones without the CD being for multiplayer client only. Starfleet Command I & II being examples.


    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/prison-architect
    One interesting thing about Prison Architect is that some of the prisoner names are Easter eggs. For instance, one of them is "Taylor Hebert", the [anti-]villain protagonist from Wildbow's web novel "Worm"

    Shadow Tactics:Blade of the SHogun on giveaway on GoG for the next 36 hours.
    https://www.gog.com/game/shadow_tac...n?pp=632667547e7cd3e0466547863e1207a8c0c0c549

    Note I had difficulty highlighting to copy/paste, it kept losing the highlighting when I scrolled, and <SHIFT>-clicking did not work. Even invoking "Enable right click" (a WE clone of right-to-click) didn't help. What did seem to work was <CTRL>-<A> <CTRL>-<C>.

    This week on Epic "Shenmue 3" Also Fanatical is giving away "GraphicAudio Novels Free Giveaway Bundle".
    EDIT:Also looks like The Witcher Goodies Collection is back to being offered for free on GoG.






    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/shenmue-3
    Shenmue was supposed to be pretty good, but I don't know how the sequels are.



    https://www.gog.com/game/the_witcher_goodies_collection?pp=632667547e7cd3e0466547863e1207a8c0c0c549
    Note: If you already claimed The Witcher Goodies Collection at some point in the past, you should still check your library – new content will be added there automatically!

    Ok, looks like Epic is going with a new game every day or every other day. If you missed Shenmue 3 it's too late now, you have 20 hours (looks like 9am Eastern Standard Time) to claim "Neon Abyss" and then they put another game up.
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/neon-abyss
    Looks like a platformer/shooter similar to Contra or Abuse.

    Remnant: From The Ashes
    For the next 24 hours.
    It does not appear to be a RWBY tie-in.
