Humble's giving away Brutal Legend for free right now


For Those About to Rock

AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young died over the weekend. He's the latest in a never-ending sad and continuous stream of beloved musicians passing away. This year has seen, among others, Young, Chuck Berry, Tom Petty, Chris Cornell, Gregg Allman, and Chester Bennington all shuffle off this mortal coil. Some earlier than others, but all undeniably influential in their own way.

Maybe it's a strained connection, but this opportunity to remember gone musicians is also an opportunity to remember a mostly-forgotten music video game. Humble is giving away real-time-strategy-game-in-disguise Brutal Legend for free. No strings attached (apart from having a Humble account) -- just go through the checkout process and get sent a Steam key. The promotion ends at 10am Pacific on Wednesday November 22.

Looking through our archives of Brutal Legend stories, I found this retrospective that I apparently wrote four years ago. (I've written 3,000-some stories here, it's hard to remember even a fraction of them!) In that piece, I said "Brutal Legend is the From Dusk Till Dawn of video games." That is still the smartest thing I've ever said.
