Sundered: Eldritch Edition, one of the best-looking Metroidvanias ever made, is free right now.
You know what time it is? It’s Epic Games Store free game time is what time it is!
This week, Thunder Lotus’ Metroidvania, Sundered, is up for grabs. The Lovecraft- and Don Bluth-inspired action-adventure got pretty good reviews when it released back in 2017. That being said, 2017 was one of the greatest years of all time for video games, so it would be understandable to miss this indie Metroidvania.
Thunder Lotus’ previous game, Jotun, was free on the Epic Games Store about a month ago, so it’s a good time to discover the studio’s work.
Now that Sundered is available, Epic has also unveiled next week’s free game. Beginning on January 16, you’ll be able to grab Horace, a mostly overlooked 2019 splatformer. I hadn’t heard anything about this game until listening to Giant Bomb’s Game of the Year deliberations, so I’m curious to check it out.
