The latest Epic Games Store freebie, InnerSpace, is available to claim now, but you can also start looking forward to next week’s offerings. Another two-game free week starts March 5, with real-time strategy game Offworld Trading Company and platforming roguelike Gonner up for grabs.
Released in 2016, Offworld Trading Company is an RTS set on Mars. Unlike most popular strategy games, you aren’t guiding units into battle, you’re helming one of four trading companies that seeks to colonize Mars and control all of the newly inhabited planet’s resources. It’s much faster paced than your average strategy game, too, which makes the race for resources a constantly entertaining and unpredictable ride.
The unique strategy game earned a 9/10 in GameSpot’s Offworld Trading Company review. “Offworld is a revelation. It’s almost unparalleled in the genre. Each and every game is thrilling. Every moment is a challenge. And the brutality of the free market ensures that you can never rest on your laurels, less you be quashed by the invisible hand,” Daniel Starkey wrote.
