This week's Epic Store freebies bring a double dose of gaming nostalgia and apocalyptic creativity - Earthlock and Surviving The Aftermath.
First in line is Earthlock, a vibrant turn-based party RPG that weaves a tale of unlikely heroes, doomed planets, and a subtle reminder of the late 90s' classic 3D RPGs that now sit in the realm of nostalgia. Prepare to embark on a colorful journey with Earthlock and meet the charming boar person, Gnart. It's a trip down memory lane you didn't know you needed.
Earthlock is an indie developed, adventure RPG inspired by the classic 3D RPGs of the late 90's, with a fresh take on turn based combat and character progression.
Embark on a journey to save the beautiful world of Umbra, a harsh planet that stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago. What started as a mission to rescue Amon’s uncle from the clutches of an ancient cult, soon spirals into an adventure that was centuries in the making. You must bring together this group of unlikely heroes to stop the ruinous past from repeating itself.
EARTHLOCK features a unique talent board system; a refreshing take on the classic skill tree. This board gives you complete control over your player's strengths and weaknesses. You can swap talents on and off the board, allowing you to finely tune each character to your desired playing style. The talent board also features “Perk Talents” which you can craft and collect in the world, giving you special combat skills and abilities.
Surviving The Aftermath
Next on the lineup is Surviving the Aftermath, a city builder set in the aftermath of Earth's apocalypse. As the name suggests, your primary goal is crystal clear—survive. What sets Surviving the Aftermath apart from its post-apocalyptic counterparts is its procedural world. Dive into a dynamic environment, scavenging and exploring with a diverse pool of 80 unique survivors at your disposal. It's time to build, adapt, and thrive in the wake of destruction. Survive and thrive in a post-apocalyptic future — resources are scarce, but opportunity calls! Build the ultimate disaster proof colony, protect your colonists, and restore civilization to a devastated world.
