Epic Games Store’s free game giveaway continues as this week’s games are absolute bangers. We’ve got ABZU and The End is Nigh free this week until 12th September.
Immerse yourself in a vibrant ocean world full of mystery and bursting with color and life. Perform fluid acrobatics as the Diver using graceful swimming controls. Discover hundreds of unique species based on real creatures and form a powerful connection with the abundant sea life.
Interact with schools of thousands of fish that procedurally respond to you, each other, and predators. Linger in epic seascapes and explore aquatic ecosystems modeled with unprecedented detail. Descend into the heart of the ocean where ancient secrets lie forgotten. But beware, dangers lurk in the depths. “ABZÛ” is from the oldest mythologies; AB, meaning water, and ZÛ, meaning to know. ABZÛ is the ocean of wisdom.
The End Is Nigh is a sprawling adventure platformer where the player takes control over Ash, one of few “things” that have “survived” the “end of the world”.
Follow Ash as he flops his way through a future of pain and suffering. Feel his stress levels rise as you throw him into an endless swarm of decaying, mutant animal-like creatures and help aid his final epic quest… to simply make a friend (out of pieces of people he finds along his journey).
Oh, also you collect video game cartridges and tumors! if that does anything for ya.
The free game for next week on the Epic Games Store is Conarium which will be available from 12th September.
Developer Zoetrope Interactive and publisher Iceberg Interactive are thrilled to announce that cosmic horror game Conarium will be available on Tuesday, 12 February for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Conarium brings astonishing visuals for a more immersive storytelling and gaming experience.
Prepare for a gripping horror adventure involving four scientists and their endeavour to challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s 1935 novella “At the Mountains of Madness”, but largely set in the aftermath. Explore the Antarctic base, as well as dreams and visions. Study clues, unlock secrets but avoid macabre beings at all cost or get ready to lose your mind…
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: “Conarium is the first Iceberg game to be simultaneously released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and signifies a unique moment for us, as our 10-year-anniversary approaches. Conarium has already been widely praised by the fans of the cosmic horror genre, yet the enhanced console edition takes the experience to a whole new level.”
Zoetrope Interactive adds: “Conarium is an immersive experience, and being able to play it on your TV while lounging in a big chair or on your couch, with the lights turned down and your speakers up, is the way we envisioned it before development even started. PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements and HDR support make it even better. We hope you enjoy playing Conarium as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Conarium is a chilling Lovecraftian game that follows the gripping story of four scientists and their endeavour to challenge what we normally consider to be the “absolute” limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s novella At the Mountains of Madneass, but largely set after the original story.
You, as Frank Gilman, open your eyes inside a room filled with strange, pulsating noises. Patterns of lights executing a Danse Macabre on the walls is presented by a queer device on the table. Having recalled nothing other than that you’re in Upuaut, an Antarctic base located near the South Pole, you find the place deserted and have a distinct feeling of something being terribly wrong. Somehow knowing that your memories cannot guide you enforces a strange feeling of vulnerability, a familiar yet alien sensation of being a part of a peculiar whole… Soon you will discover that having used the device during the expedition, you have died but then returned subtly changed, speaking of strange memories and of strange places. You have lost something important or gained something sinister…
Explore the Antarctic base, as well as dreams and visions. Study clues and unlock secrets, whilst avoiding macabre beings at all cost.
A deep and suspense-filled Lovecraftian story with lots of secrets and Easter eggs.
Ominous but wonderful graphics created with Unreal Engine 4.
A haunting and atmospheric soundtrack.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Conarium aims to bring cutting-edge visuals for a more immersive storytelling and gaming experience.
