The Epic Games Store today delivered the second giveaway wave of October, which happens to be another double drop. Replacing the two hell-themed action games from last week are copies of Darkwood and ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove, giving you a week to claim them.
Darkwood is a survival horror game presented from a rare top-down perspective. In this hardcore experience you will be scavenging for resources in the randomly generated open world while hoping for a safe return to camp before dark.
Developer Acid Wizard describes its 2017-released title as follows:
Darkwood provides a new perspective on survival horror. Scavenge and explore the rich, ever-changing free-roam world by day, then hunker down in your hideout and pray for the morning light.
As for ToeJam & Earl, it is a rogue-like adventure that serves as a sequel to the 1990s classic console game. The title touts returning features from the retro game but with modern improvements, four-player cooperative play, nine playable characters, secrets to uncover, and more.
The game launched in 2019, and its setting is described by the developer HumaNature Studios like this:
ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove! is a mash-up of the very best features of the classic console games with a ton of fresh improvements. Grab some homies and get ready for a blast of funky nostalgia as you help ToeJam and Earl return once again to Funkotron.
You can now claim Darkwood and ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove from the Epic Games Store for free until October 20. Both games normally cost $15 to purchase when they are not on sale. Coming up next as giveaways onto the store are copies of Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition and Evoland Legendary Edition.
