Hyper Light Drifter is your free game of the day


Tomorrow is Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Another day, another free game. That's how the cookie crumbles and the library grows with Epic's 12 Days of Free Games.

Today, it's Hyper Light Drifter, a gorgeous action adventure RPG from 2016. Developer Heart Machine meticulously crafted an indie masterpiece of abstract storytelling and punishing combat. It's a beautiful blend of old and new approaches to game design, all wrapped in an aesthetic that constantly tempts you to take screenshots.

As these things go, you have until tomorrow morning to claim your copy of Hyper Light Drifter. It seems like tomorrow's freebie will be Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun from Daedalic Entertainment.

To recap the promotion thus far, here's everything that Epic has given away over the course of the past nine days:

  • Into the Breach
  • TowerFall Ascension
  • Superhot
  • Little Inferno
  • Ape Out
  • Celeste
  • Totally Accurate Battle Simulator
  • FTL: Faster Than Light
  • Hyper Light Drifter

Of course, this list isn't a reminder of things you should go back and grab. Each free game is only available for 24 hours, so you've already missed the boat on anything you didn't claim except for Hyper Light Drifter. Still, pretty good promotion!
