Everything is free on the Epic Games Store. Ready the jokes.

David OReilly’s Everything and 4A Games’ Metro 2033 Redux are free right now on the Epic Game Store.

Everything is a philosophical indie that combines Katamari Damacy-ish gameplay with clips from the speeches of philosopher Alan Watts. The game gets its name from the fact that it allows you to play as, well, everything. You’ll shrink down to the size of an atom and scale up to the size of a galaxy. In between, you’ll roll around as everything in between. (Yes, it’s as weird as it sounds.)

With a game as unusual as Everything, your mileage will obviously vary. But, Polygon named the game to its annual top 10 list in 2017, one of the best years in gaming history.

Metro 2033 Redux is the definitive edition of the acclaimed first chapter in 4A Games’ Metro trilogy, which culminated in the release of Metro Exodus, earlier this year. The game is based on Dmitry Glukhovsky’s novel, Metro 2033. This one’s not for the faint-hearted, but if you enjoy claustrophobic horror? You’re in for a treat.

With the release of this pair, Epic has revealed that the free game next week will be Minit, the 1-bit action RPG played in 60-second, looping increments.
