This week, the Epic Games Store is offering two small indie-developed PC games that you can download and keep for the next week. The first game is Out of Line, a 2D side scroller-puzzle game developed by Nerd Monkeys and published by Hatinh Interactive. In this game, you control San as he tries to escape the oppressive location known as The Factory. With its visually impressive puzzles, mastery of spear mechanics, beautiful hand-drawn environments, and extraordinary characters, Out of Line offers a captivating gaming experience.
The second game available for free is The Forest Quartet, developed by Mads & Friends and published by Bedtime Digital Games. This adventure puzzle fantasy game follows a lead singer in a band as she attempts to bring her fellow band members together for a final concert. With the ability to interact with objects through singing, creating light with your fingertips, and transforming into butterflies, The Forest Quartet provides a unique gameplay experience. Additionally, it boasts an immersive soundtrack that incorporates various environmental sounds and tells a story of life, heartbreak, loss, and the power of music.
What makes The Forest Quartet even more special is that the main developer had his father write the game's original jazz score, while his sister lent her voice to the game's main character lead singer. This personal touch adds an extra layer of meaning and authenticity to the game.
Both Out of Line and The Forest Quartet will be available for free download from the Epic Games store until 11 a.m. Eastern time on September 28. Don't miss out on these captivating indie games that offer unique gameplay experiences and heartfelt stories.
