Q-Games' perplexing The Tomorrow Children goes free to play


Log in before November 2 for a Halloween costume

Q-Games' hard-to-pin-down The Tomorrow Children has been out on PlayStation 4 since early September, but that was only if you ponied up $20 for a Founders Pack. Starting this week, as promised, the labor-centric cooperative town-builder will be offered as a free-to-play title.

There's also a new Frontier Pack ($20) with: "the Bourgeoisie papers, Lv1. Arms License, Lv1. Tools License, EagleCorp Jetpack, 3 avatars, and 500 Freeman dollars ($25 value)." These items are a part of the normal progression in the game, and you can work toward them by lending a hand around town or out on the harvestable "islands," but it's going to take a significant time investment that way.

"We have also released a major update to the game, not only to address some of the user feedback we have been receiving but also simply to add a selection of new content to the game," says Q-Games president Dylan Cuthbert. "We'll be adding new islands, tools, costumes, void powers, facilities, missions and much more. The megaphone, for example, allows for improved communication and will help players cooperate better." You'll find a spooky limited-time costume, too. Just log in this month.

Frankly, I'm still not sure what to make of this strange, largely monotonous game. But I do hope that it can catch on well enough to find an audience and give the developers room to let it grow and improve.
