This week, Epic Games Store is giving away Creature in the Well, a “pinball-inspired” hack-and-slash dungeon crawler.
Originally released in 2019, the game follows a BOT-C unit that is trying to restore power to a facility and free a city from a sandstorm. During its journey into a desert mountain, it finds itself “haunted by a desperate Creature” that sets challenges for the BOT-C and also confronts it directly in “intricate, skillful battles”.
There will be eight dungeons to explore, each with its own gameplay theme, unlockables, and secrets. There will also be upgradeable weapons and clothes to customize your playstyle with. The gameplay is described as "pinball with swords", with the player bouncing energy orbs around to start up machinery.
You can grab the game on EGS here. Next week’s free game is Tales of the Neonsea, a sci-fi mystery adventure game set in a world where robots and humans co-exist.
