Until September 22, 18:00 Moscow time, two games are given away in the Epic Games Store – Spirit of the North and The Captain.
Spirit of the North is a puzzle adventure inspired by Icelandic landscapes and Scandinavian folklore. There are no dialogues and narration in the game, so the player must himself build hypotheses about the bygone ancient civilization.
You will go on a journey to awaken the dormant Spirit of the North:
This is a story about a simple red fox whose fate is closely intertwined with the fate of the guardian of the Northern Lights – a female fox spirit. As you travel through mountains and under red skies, you will learn more about your companion and the land left in ruins.
The game received lukewarm reviews from critics (63/100 on OpenCritic), but players liked it (88% positive reviews on Steam).
The Captain – another adventure, only this time space and two-dimensional.
You have to return home, flying through the entire galaxy:
You are Captain Thomas Velma, a space fleet scientist, and you have been thrown to the other side of the galaxy. Dark forces are heading towards the Earth in order to destroy it, and you have the only thing that can stop them. Hurry home through the galaxy. Make new friends along the way. And also enemies. You can’t save everyone. Who will you donate? Which civilizations will you save – or destroy – along the way? You decide. You are… the captain!
The game has received 93% positive reviews on Steam. Reviews from critics are not enough to make an average rating.
A week later, on September 22, the distribution of a survivalist with dinosaurs will begin ARK: Survival Evolved and turn-based role-playing game Gloomhaven.
