Hyper Light Drifter is a great game. As someone that doesn't like rogue-lites or procedural generation, Hyper Light was exactly what I dreamed of by being an entirely bespoke experience with beautiful graphics and challenging gameplay. For free it is really worth checking out.

Mutant Year Zero I haven't played but I've heard generally good things?

So if you don't have a problem with installing the Epic Game Store, and honestly I don't want this thread to devolve into a bunch of reasons if you do or don't - sort it out in your heart of hearts but on your own - then these games seem like a real nice grab. Mostly I'm here to promote Hyper Light Drifter because I think it's terrific. When people swoon over stuff like Dead Cells I always think that more folk should have played Hyper Light. Not that it's a competition, but if it was.. then it would be the better game. But it's not! But if it was..

If you like XCOM style games, Mutant Year Zero is a really good smaller scale one of those.

Hyper Light Drifter is excellent. What a good set of free games.

Not as much of a factor for the EGS version, but did HLD ever stop doing that stupid thing where saves were system specific and couldn't even be manually synced between computers? I always love the first hour or so then got frustrated that I amstuck staying on my laptop or can't continue my game until I got back from travel.
