Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden
The Epic Games Store description of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden follows as:
EXPLORE A POST-HUMAN EARTH
From a team including former designers of HITMAN and PAYDAY comes Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, a tactical game that combines the turn-based combat of XCOM with real-time stealth and exploration of a post-human world reclaimed by nature… and Mutants.
Of course the world ends.
Now it’s over and the Earth is still. Nature has invaded ruined cities. Wind sweeps through empty streets, turned into graveyards.
The humans are all gone. Scavenging through the remains ofcivilization are the Mutants, deformed humanoids and animals alike, searching for salvation or just something to eat. To survive, you and your companions must venture out to explore the Zone.
Then again, maybe it’s all bullshit.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is the ultimate fix for your tactical strategy addiction. Dive into a deep, turn-based, tactical combat system inspired by the XCOM games.
EXPLORE A POST-HUMAN EARTH
Journey through a post-human world of abandoned cities, crumbling highways, and overgrown countryside. Check back at the Ark, a neon-bathed oasisof ill repute and questionable characters, to restock your supplies and plan out your next adventure.
CONTROL A TEAM OF MUTANTS
A duck with an attitude problem and a boar with anger issues; these aren’t your typical heroes. Get to know Dux, Bormin, Selma, and many other characters each with their own unique personality and deranged perspective on the world and their situation.
MASTER THE STEALTHY APPROACH
Sneak through shadows to avoid conflict or to catch enemies unaware. Real-time stealth allows you full control of approach: sneak into an enemy camp, position the team of Mutants to your advantage, and gain the element of surprise.
Unlock new mutations and abilities for your Mutants, such as Selma’s grasping vines, Bormin’s Charge, and Dux‘ uncanny ability to sneak into a camp full of enemies unnoticed, despite being a 4-foot tall walking, talking duck with a crossbow.
Use the environment to your advantage. Stay out of floodlights, hide from line of sight, or just blast down fully destructible walls and buildings and wreak utter havoc.
LOOT, LOOT EVERYWHERE
From makeshift slingshots to high-powered rifles and top hats to police vests, make sure you equip your Mutants for the dangers ahead. Nothing says post-human quite like a mutated boar in spiked metal armor charging at you with a blunderbuss in his hands.
This game looks very interesting, like I mean who doesn’t want to be teamed up with a badass mutant pig and duck? The trailer for the game looks awesome to be sure to check that out for yourself above. The turned based combat of this game gives it that next level of strategy. You really have to think and use your brain to play this game. This game is currently free on the Epic Games Store. Press the button below if you want to download it now!
Fez (Upcoming Free Game)
The Epic Games description of Fez follows as:
Gomez is a 2D creature living in a 2D world. Or is he? When the existence of a mysterious 3rd dimension is revealed to him, Gomez is sent out on a journey that will take him to the very end of time and space. Use your ability to navigate 3D structures from 4 distinct classic 2D perspectives.
This game looks pretty hard. You have to climb up various objects, however, the catch is you have the ability to change the view. You can change the view to the sides, front and back. This enables you to see objects you can climb onto. Although this game looks kinda hard, it looks like a lot of fun. This game will be free on the 22nd of August till the 29th of August. Keep your eyes open for when Fez is free!
