    Epic take on Steam—free Game every 2 weeks

    Steam is the Amazon of digital games. Now Epic Games wants to take them on—if you're interested in some backstory, here's an article:
    Steam And Epic Are In A Game Store Battle, And Players Win

    To entice players, Epic are giving away a video game every 2 weeks—I believe I saw that'll last for a year, but who knows. Current plan:
    Until December 27: Subnautica—$25 to buy, 94% positive rating from 80,000 players on Steam;
    From December 28: Super Meat Boy—$15, 94%.

    You will need to create an Epic Games account, and have/get the Epic Games Launcher desktop app.

    Link to get started.

    I had no trouble getting & installing the Launcher, and Subnautica is now in my library.

    I've seen the Christmas offer for Subnautica - a completely free plan. But can't find the source now. Perhaps, the offer is not valid anymore. Have you seen that too?

    Thanks. I guess I've seen it on FutureGameReleases as well. Is it an offer for a limited time only?
    Also curious about the Super Meat Boy Forever release and future offers.

    I think the current offers are all time-limited, check the HTG link in Lugh's post, there's further details and links there.
