Today's free title on Epic Games Store is The Astronauts' 2014 mystery title. Played in the first-person perspective, the game is set in an open world for players to explore through the character of a detective, Paul Prospero.
"You play the game as Paul Prospero, an occult-minded detective who receives a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter. Realizing the boy is in grave danger, Paul arrives at Ethan’s home of Red Creek Valley, where things turn out to be even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which Paul quickly discerns might not be the only local murder worth looking into," the game description reads.
The goal of the game is, of course, solving the mystery of the deaths of the Carter family. Players will be able to use paranormal abilities to recreate events when they find a dead body. To fully unlock the final ending, players must complete additional stories through puzzles and stealth games.
