The folks at Epic Store just made an update to their store promo of giving away one game away for absolutely free for their digital store’s promo. This second game, users can now grab free of charge until January 10th, is none other than 2010’s cult platformer Super Meat Boy.
This Holiday season has been extraordinarily fruitful in terms of free game gifts from game developers and digital stores. The newest addition to this nice trend is the new free game in rotation at the Epic Store. Super Meat Boy was arguably one of the most important titles and responsible for the rise of indie games.
It’s a bona fide classic title every gamer should own in their library and play at least once. Mind you, play not finish, as Super Meat Boy offers a devilishly challenging experience with it’s one-hit-death mechanics. Over the course of more than a whopping 300 levels, players will no doubt lose their patience countless times to reach each level’s end in one piece of clean meat.
The indie sensation became an instant smash success and was ported to almost every gaming system under the sun. It’s very likely you already own the game in one form or another but can there really be such a thing as too much goodness? And after close to 10 years since its original release on the Xbox Live Arcade, there very well might be a large pool of players who simply missed out on the glory which is Super Meat Boy.
So, head on over to the Epic Store and claim your free copy of Super Meat Boy now and keep it forever. The game still regularly goes for over 10 bucks, so the savings make this offer a no-brainer.
Even if you have played the game already in the past, this is a great opportunity to replay the game and prepare yourself in anticipation for the upcoming release of its long-awaited sequel Super Meat Boy Forever in April 2019.
