It’s Thursday and that means that on the Epic Games Store new free-to-play games are added. This week Deponia, The Pillars of the Earth, and The First Tree are free to keep, meaning that once the games are claimed they will remain on your library.
Deponia: The Complete Journey
Deponia is an adventure puzzle game developed by Daedalic Entertainment, the game takes players on the trash-planet Deponia. Our protagonist is Rufus who in one of his attempts to leave Deponia behind, meets Goal, a beautiful girl from Elysium accidentally stuck in the desolate trash planet.
This accident kindles a new, brilliant plan: he needs to get Goal back to the floating city of Elysium – and while he’s on it, he can also impersonate her sleazy fiance Cletus, who is the spitting image of Rufus for some reason. And thus, an exciting adventure begins…
Showered in top-scores and awards, the Deponia-Trilogy, created by the developers of Edna&Harvey: The Breakout, The Whispered World and Memoria, managed to reach cult-status almost instantly. Thanks to its exciting story, likeable characters and hilarious dialogues and a finely crafted mixture of comedy and puzzles, Deponia is enjoyable for both, young and old. Join Rufus on his thrilling journeys, for the first time in a complete edition with many new features, that will not only be a blast for hardcore adventure fans, but also those new to the genre.
Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth
The game takes place in the 12th century, England: In a time of poverty and war, a small town begins the construction of a cathedral to claim wealth and safety for its people. In their struggle to survive, lives and destinies intertwine. Based on Ken Follett’s world-bestseller ‘The Pillars of the Earth’.
