It looks like they changed it to a free game every week now instead of 2 weeks.

Edit: I have been informed that it will be 1 per week only during the spring sale.

Well, City of Brass does look awesome. No amount of free games will make me go anywhere near the Epic store, though :D

in case someone wants to check the game screenshots, reviews, community, dlc, news, update info, and some stock images by the dev, here's the link to its store:

Lol, first thing I did was go to Steam for reviews and was also curious when the game originally released.

Not knowing details behind this decision its hard to say if they are happy or not.
Id say they probably were the ones to suggest it. Or knowing Epic they could have offered to pay them for licenses given away if they didnt want it to go for free so you get players AND money. But who knows

Given what happened with the epic mega sale, I think either outcome (devs willing or unwilling) are possible, but I feel it's more likely that epic enticed and the devs agreed.

Both subnautica and slime rancher had new content coming (subnautica zero and rancher dlc) so some sort of promotion would help their new stuff aswell.

And unlike the weird kerfuffle with the mega sale,it takes 1 week for the next game to come out, plenty of time for the devs to pull out if they really didn't want to - in this case, it would be another laugh at epic's astoundingly bad management.

I've been tracking this game since EA and judging by the frequent discounted price, I think the company needed funds.

small correction:
You are one year off, the release was 2018 not 2019 :)
And before that it was a while in EA :)

edit: I am from SEA so the link works for me too.

Not really my type of game; I prefer story-driven, and I usually groan when I hear the words "randomly generated levels" and "rogue-lite." Having said that, it's free, and the developers worked on the first two Bioshock's. They also did Submerged, which I really liked. I'll give this a whirl.

Thanks for the heads-up, qbano.

I think devs deserve extra points just for the fact that even that they were really low on funds they achieved getting the game out of early access. Actually i am happy for the first time with epic helping some developers.

"randomly generated levels" and "rogue-lite."
+1 .

Always disappointed when i see those tags on something i might have been interested in.

This has had a few good patches/bug fixes since 2017 so it's probably improved since it's first release but as far as i know it still hasn't sold very well.
Probably worth a quick look if it's free.

Is this game like Serious Sam, waves of enemies rushing towards you, mindless button bashing?

No, it's a "rogue-like". You have have to complete a number of floors, with increasing difficulty and boss battles to get to the end. During each run you can buy random upgrades, perks, weapons etc. If you die, you start over.

It's pretty much the opposite of Serious Sam, slow and methodical is the way to go.

It's an excellent game, shame it's not free on a better platform.

Just wish the Epic Store included proper game descriptions. They present games with beautiful pre-rendered videos - but I'm too old in this game; Beautiful pre-rendered videos are rarely matched by the game itself if not an outright attempt to gloss over an ugly-ish game - but they don't even bother to tell me if it's a shooter or an RPG, or an 4X or what...
I have to google the game to get the info I need - and I just can't be bothered to do that with every game they sell. That is the main reason I don't buy games from Epic, I just have no idea what the hell they are.

this is so very true. store really shines. beautifully. but... it just shines. and thought a little about it, while browsing it. imo, that's a strategy, commercial one, or smth.

like, it's just impossible that such a company can't put a link, a tag, little something more that beautifully shining pictures and videos.
like, eyes are pleased, what about the brain?

just early stages of a future Steam competitor? time will tell, more sooner than later, also :D

I guess it will come, hopefully sooner than later.
And I truly believe we need to develop some Steam competitors - not because I think Steam is bad at all, I believe they are standard to follow, even if we all have our own pet peeves with Steam - becaus Gaben is not going to live forever, and a multi-millon, almost billion dollar a year company is more than likely to directly or eventually be run by someone like EA's managers.... If no real competitors are available to keep them a little in check, we'll all be massively fu... forced to give up.

That is fun game, gets a little repetitive, though. Whipping skellies is enjoyable.
