Humble's got a Capcom sale on. Looks like a lot of games that go on sale pretty regularly.

Assassin's Creed Unity is free to claim through Uplay (PC only) for the next week. As a French company, Ubisoft feels its their responsibility to make the Notre Dame fire the second most terrible thing to happen to your week.

Fell Seal is out today and 15% off.

It's good! Buy it if "shameless FFT homage" sounds like a something you'd dig.

There's a Humble sale on, and they're giving away Guacamelee for free. It's great; get it if you haven't already. (Runs well on low-end hardware, too.)

Sigil (John Romero's new "episode 5" for the original Doom) is out and the base WAD is free. 6.66 euro for the version with a Buckethead soundtrack (in-game only, not MP3 files).

I'm seeing that it requires a full version of the original Doom or Ultimate Doom (you can play the WAD in the engine of your choice, but it requires the base WADs). Doom goes on sale pretty frequently but I'm surprised to see it's not part of the current GOG sale. Still, $5 at full price on Steam and $6 at full price on GOG ain't gonna break the bank.

Didn't we used to have a surplus game key giveaway thread? I can't seem to find it, but thjat's probably just me being a dumb.

Anyway, does anyone want a copy of Paratopic? My brother's got a key he can give me though neither of us are big horror game fans. That said, it looks sort of interesting in a Twin Peaks sort of way and has good reviews, but I'd rather just pass it along to someone who genuinely wants it.

Oh, and here's a DRM-free key for Pool Panic.

Humble Nintendo sale. Mostly Switch; some 3DS. Is there anybody who's got a 3DS who hasn't played Link Between Worlds? If so, it's $15.

EPIC store has gone from monthly to weekly free games starting today with Enter The Gungeon.

I'm kinda liking how the low-grade r/gaming hate undercurrent is pressuring Epic to give me all this random free crap.

I'd assumed they were being looked after from the infinite Fortnite money pool, has anyone spoken out about the developer experience of this event?

I haven't heard about the game giveaways, but Epic Store exclusivity money was enough that Phoenix Point stated that 100% of their backers could get refunds and they'd still be in the black - so that's approximately $2 million for exclusivity.

Notably, none of the free giveaways have been exclusives. In fact I've already owned them all on Steam.

I can't even find anything that talks in hard numbers about the deals, but I figure the best case scenario is that everyone says they volunteered and weren't in any way pressured to do the give-aways. I would be amazed to hear if there was any compensation for the licenses.
