It’s never been easier to play great games on the Epic Games Store. The store offers a variety of high-quality games across many genres and audiences. With so many titles available for free, you can try new titles in a matter of minutes—and if you love what you’re playing, there are plenty of ways to pay for extra content.
We’ve got those, too, if you want nothing but action-packed shooters and fast-paced platformers! If story-driven adventures with charming characters are more your style, check out one of these award-winning indie hits:
If family-friendly titles that everyone can enjoy top your list (or even if they don’t), look no further than these fun collectible card battlers:
And if RPGs are more your thing, there are plenty of fun ones available as well:
Hades is a rogue-like dungeon crawler that lets you play as the son of the Greek god of the underworld, Hades. You must escape from the underworld to fulfill your destiny and save humanity from destruction.
Hades has an impressive storyline and characters and excellent replay value. The game currently doesn’t have a full release date yet, but it will be coming soon (in early access).
The pathway is a turn-based strategy game set in the 1930s, featuring a story mode where you play as the leader of an archaeology expedition. The game is a homage to classic adventure stories such as Indiana Jones and the Mummy, with each mission taking place in an exotic location like lost temples and haunted caves.
The player controls a party of adventurers as they explore these locations, fighting enemies along the way through turn-based combat. The player’s party can consist of up to four characters at once; each character has different skills useful for different situations. For example, some characters have high health but low attack power; others have low health but high attack power; others have increased health and good attack power (but not both).
Into the Breach
Into the Breach is a turn-based strategy game developed by Subset Games, the studio that brought you FTL. In this game, you are part of a team of mech pilots who must defend humanity from an alien invasion. They must fight giant monsters that only take up 8×8 grids on each level to do so. This means every move and battle has to be carefully considered because there aren’t too many options for it: do you dodge? Do you attack? Do you use one of your special abilities?
The fun thing about Into the Breach is that this formula never gets old as long as new enemies keep showing up. With each encounter being completely random (the order in which they appear), no two playthroughs will ever feel alike; there’s always something new to learn from fighting off these monsters instead of just going through the motions over and over again without thinking about what moves should be made next.
Into The Breach was released back in 2018 but remains popular today because it offers such fascinating gameplay while also looking gorgeous with its retro graphics style!
If you’re looking for a game that will take you to another world, Abzu is perfect. Based on an ancient myth about the ocean of creation, this game will have you exploring its beautiful underwater worlds as you try to uncover its secrets.
While it’s not as popular as some of the other titles on the Epic Games Store, it still has a score of 82 on Metacritic and is considered highly rated by many critics. So if you’re interested in playing something different with gorgeous visuals, this might be the one for you!
Super Meat Boy
Super Meat Boy is a 2D platformer about saving your girlfriend, Bandage Girl, from the evil Dr. Fetus. You play as bandage-wrapped hero Super Meat Boy who has to make his way through over 300 levels of jumping and dodging obstacles to save his love.
The game features tight controls, retro graphics, and a soundtrack to keep you tapping your feet while you play. The game also features over 100 unlockable characters that can be used to change up the gameplay experience with new abilities or different visuals (like one character whose head is an apple).
Super Meat Boy costs $14.99 on the Epic Games Store and comes with no additional microtransactions or DLCs like some other games on this list do. It’s available on Steam, where it has earned an 89% positive rating among reviewers for its “excellent” gameplay experience with “a level editor that allows players to create their levels by placing objects anywhere they want,” according to one user review at Metacritic.
Oxenfree is a supernatural adventure game from Night School Studio, the creators of the award-winning narrative game Grim Fandango Remastered. The player character (you) is stuck on a small island with your new stepbrother and your friends when you discover a radio that lets you communicate with ghosts. You can choose to talk to them or push them away to learn more about what happened to them, but it’s up to you whether you want them around or not!
The story itself is interesting enough and has some great twists. The graphics are also good quality for this game genre; they’re colorful and detailed without being too distracting from gameplay. All in all, Oxenfree seems like an excellent addition to any gamer’s collection who likes point-and-click adventures or supernatural stories set around Halloween time!
Celeste is a platformer that rewards you every time you die. Well, maybe not every time—but often enough to keep you coming back, and it’s so much fun that you’ll want to keep trying. The game can be tricky at times, but the controls are tight and responsive, and the art style is beautiful.
The music by Lena Raine is also excellent; it’s lighthearted in tone but has a vast retro-ish feel that adds an extra layer of charm to an already charming game.
Fez is a 2D platformer with a unique premise: you play as Gomez, who can rotate the world 90 degrees at any time. This power allows for some creative puzzle-solving strategies, and it’s a lot of fun to see how each level can be solved by rotating your perspective in multiple ways. Fez also features colorful visuals and an original soundtrack that makes everything feel fresh and exciting while you’re exploring its strange world.
World of Goo
World of Goo, released in October 2008, was the first game to be released on the Epic Games Store. Like many other games on this list, it’s also available through Steam and other platforms. The game is a puzzle game where you build structures out of goo.
You control slimes trying to construct a tower out of goo balls called goo balls. You can connect two or more goo balls by drawing lines between them with your mouse cursor. This causes them to become bound by the line you drew, and if you have enough glue (which is produced when you click on specific types of goo balls), those separate balls will become one big ball that can be used for building purposes; later!
TowerFall Ascension is a 2D arcade platformer that pits up to four players against each other in local multiplayer. TowerFall Ascension’s controls are intuitive and straightforward, allowing you to pull off impressive feats at the press of a button—but there’s a lot more depth to be found if you take things slow.
The only story here is that you’re fighting for possession of an ancient artifact called “The Arrow That Fell From Heaven,”—but this game isn’t about the plot. It’s all about challenging your friends (or strangers) intense battles of skill and strategy, where one shot might spell victory or defeat.
