As a rule, if several games are given away on the Epic Games Store, then they are very different from each other. But not this time: until October 13, 15:00 Moscow time, you can pick up 2D actions Rising Hell and Slain: Back From Hell.
Rising Hell is a vertical roguelite platformer with heavy metal as a soundtrack and procedural level generation.
You, as one of the characters, have to escape from hell, defeating hordes of bloodthirsty demons and epic bosses. Combo strikes, acrobatic tricks and pumping abilities will help to do this.
Ratings: 79/100 on OpenCritic and 91% positive on Steam.
Slain: Back From Hell – an old-school action movie with “puzzle elements, blood and guts.” Also heavy metal.
You play as Batorin, a doomed hero who needs to free six cursed regions of the Gothic world from six deadly rulers. You need to break through the plague lands full of formidable pixel enemies, at the end climb (or descend) into the fortress, and on the way there will be dangerous traps and evil monsters.

In a week, on October 13, distribution will begin ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove! – games in the spirit of console classics, seasoned with modern conveniences.
