    (Updated first post 11th June 2020)

    All games I am posting here are free to keep forever if you grab them before the offer expires. Most can be added to a library and downloaded whenever you wish. GOG, Itch.io and indiegala all offer free and legal DRM-free direct downloads, which can be stored in the library for later.


    During the Coronavirus lockdown, many devs are making their games available for free, or with huge discounts across many game stores. All in this thread are available for free. Because there are so many, I'm going to try and keep the first post updated with ones that are currently available.

    ARK: Survival Evolved
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/ark/home

    SAMURAI SHODOWN NEOGEO COLLECTION
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/samurai-shodown-neogeo-collection/home

    Both of above are free til 18th June

    Snake Pass
    https://www.humblebundle.com/store/snake-pass-free-game
    Free until 14th June, 10am PDT or until stocks last

    Kao the Kangaroo: Round 2
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1048540/Kao_the_Kangaroo_Round_2/
    Add to account by Sunday 14th June

    Haha, well it's a pain when you actually paid for them. I bought "A Story About My Uncle" during the sales a few months ago, and now they give it away free twice... first Humble, now Steam. lol.

    Bear in mind though that by the time you see it here, it might not be free anymore. I just posted them when I saw them. ^^
    Edith Finch is still free with Epic.

    yeah, that is true. lol.

    Origin games for the PC also used to do free games every month but recently, they stop for some reason..

    Yeah, they were trying to entice people in, win over some Steam customers. lol. It doesn't work for me though. I grab them to play at some point, but the majority of my games are on Steam. If I really really wanted to play something exclusive to one of them stores, I might get it... but that's only a might.

    Epic is doing the same now that they've gone independent from Steam. They are giving a new free game every two weeks. They've given Subnautica, Super Meat boy and now What Remains of Edith Finch (until Jan 24.)

    From Jan 24 - Feb 4 they are giving away The Jackbox Party Pack.

    Free until tomorrow. All you have to do is click install to add to Steam library. Don't actually have to install it. Then it's yours forever. ;)


    I already had this one too. lol. Prob got it free before, or in a humble bundle. Can't remember. XD

    https://www.gog.com/#giveaway

    GOG is giving away a DRM-free copy of Distraint, a phycological horror game. Just go to above link and click on "Get it free" and it will be added to your library. You need to make a GOG account if you don't already have one.

    EDIT: ENDED

    ^ Thimbleweed Park is the next game being given away free on the epic store. You can get it until March 7.

    The next one will be Slime Rancher from March 7 - 21.

    (It's been pretty good so far. Very happy I snagged Subnautica at the beginning. Been adding all these games to the Epic library so I can play them at a later date.)

    You can get a DRM-free copy of Tacoma from Humble Store here: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/tacoma
    (No Steam Key for this one)

    Also, Epic freebie this fortnight (Until April 4th) is Oxenfree: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/oxenfree/home
    (A lot of people probably have it on Steam already though. I know it was a freebie somewhere before)

    Note: From April 4th - April 18th... The Witness will be the freebie on Epic Store. That one will be worth getting if you don't own a copy somewhere already.
