First up we have A Plague Tale: Innocence from Asobo Studio. First launched in May 2019, the action-adventure survival horror that also features stealth gameplay tells the story of Amica and her younger brother, Hugo, who must flee the Inquisition soldiers and a swarm of never-ending rats. A sequel is also in the works for 2022.
The other free game on offer is Speed Brawl, a 2D combat racer where the aim is to build up momentum then combined with combos and utilise special moves to take out hundreds of enemies. It was originally released in September 2018 by developer Double Stallion Games.
“Follow the critically acclaimed tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo, in a heartrending journey through the darkest hours of history. Hunted by Inquisition soldiers and surrounded by unstoppable swarms of rats, Amicia and Hugo will come to know and trust each other. As they struggle to survive against overwhelming odds, they will fight to find purpose in this brutal, unforgiving world,” reads the game description for A Plague Tale: Innocence.
Meanwhile, the Speed Brawl description reads that: “Speed Brawl is a 2D combat racer about moving fast and hitting hard! Maintain your momentum, build your combos, and unleash powerful special moves. Find your own fighting style, and assemble the finest team of brawlers ever seen. Then do it all again faster… faster… faster!!!”
