If you don’t want to pay money for games then Epic are still giving away stuff for free. Alan Wake’s American Nightmare and Observer are the latest titles you can grab for nothing and they will remain on the Epic Games store until October 24. The next two games up for grabs are Q.U.B.E. 2 and the original Layers of Fear which is well worth a look (and much better than the trackless sequel). Both games will be available to download until October 31st.
In our QUBE 2 review Adrian wrote:
Thanks to its derivative nature, Q.U.B.E. 2 never quite escapes the shadow cast by Portal. There’s too many similarities within its core mechanics, structure, and themes for it to stand alone entirely. And yet, once the player accepts that, they will find a compelling puzzler. There’s roughly five to six hours of gameplay here and, once Q.U.B.E. 2 is completed, little reason to return to its embrace. Yet whilst it burns it does so brightly, compelling the player to the end with several puzzles that equal Valve’s best.

I reviewed Layers of Fear and said this.
Layers of Fear sits somewhere between the pejoratively classified ‘walking simulators’ and a full game experience, as for the most part you are simply wandering around and solving the odd puzzle. Despite the clichés and obvious jump scares, I rather enjoyed my time exploring the mansion and I’m looking forward to having another play through to see what I missed the first time round. If you enjoyed the Silent Hills teaser P.T. and want more of the same, then Layers of Fear is well worth a look.
