A six and a zero equals sixty seconds. That is the time that the games of Minit last, a game that premiered in 2018 and that was a surprise in conceptual terms. Now, everyone who has an Epic Games Store account can get it completely for free.
The North American company will make it available to players until October 10 and will then be replaced by the next game, Surviving Mars.
Minit is a 2D role-playing and adventure video game sponsored by Devolver Digital that bases its playable concept on an original proposal. As players, we must start each morning with a mysterious and great epic journey, discover great secrets and face dangerous enemies, but taking into account that the days last a minute.
So our character travels outside the comfort of his home to help peculiar people, discover innumerable secrets and overcome dangerous enemies, all hoping to end a curse that ends, every day, after just a minute.
The production of this video game arises from a collaboration between Kitty Calis, Jan Willem Nijman, Jukio Kallio and Dominik Johann.
Moreover, as of Thursday, October 10, players must survive on the red planet with Surviving Mars, which can be added free of charge to their Epic Games Store library. Surviving Mars, developed by Haemimont Games and Paradox Interactive is a game of construction and management of colonies on the red planet, with special emphasis on the process of survival and resource control.
In the title we will have to get the resources and financial support before choosing a location, researching, designing, and setting up our facilities in the best possible way. From growing food to mining or leisure, our settlers must live in the best possible conditions in a hostile environment.
Epic Games Store opened its doors late last year. Since then, they have offered a whole series of free video games. Epic Games Store gave its users last month two games to be part of our libraries forever and without any cost. It was the Redux version of Metro: 2033 and the well-known indie called Everything.
Metro 2033 Redux is a compilation that contains remastered versions of Metro 2033, originally launched in March 2010 for PC and Xbox 360, and Metro: Last Light, which was released three years later on PS3, X360 and PC. A remastering that in the mouth of those responsible is the best that has ever been done, and that allows us to enjoy these titles with better quality than ever.
As a plot summary, we can say that the game focuses on a post-apocalyptic world, specifically in Moscow, where the surviving humans of the catastrophe have taken refuge in the Russian subway tunnels in order to avoid contamination from outside and dangerous beasts that patrol the icy streets.
On the other hand, with a much more peaceful and soft tone, Epic Games Store also gave away Everything. This is an indie title designed by David O’Reilly that experiments with the medium of video games to present us with a philosophical and artistic version of the work, which got good marks from the press. This is a special game that will make us reflect.
