Now Playing: A Long, Strange Road Trip With Your Uncle in Jalopy

Humble Bundle has been on a roll with its free game giveaways recently, and the latest limited-time freebie is Jalopy, a simulation game about a man and his uncle on a road trip through Eastern Europe. To claim the game for free, all you have to do is sign up for Humble's newsletter, and you'll receive a DRM-free version of the game for Windows PC via email. If you'd prefer a Steam key, you'll also receive a coupon to buy it for $1 between May 25 and June 1. The offer is only available to redeem for a short time, so claim it soon if you're interested.

In Jalopy, the player character and his uncle are driving to Turkey, where his uncle needs to be dropped off in Istanbul. A "jalopy" refers to a car that's old and barely functional, so it's fitting the game revolves around your car, a Laika 601 Deluxe that frequently breaks down and requires constant monitoring. From the amount of weight in your trunk to the state of the car's engine, every factor affects how well your car will fare against the difficulties of the road. You can upgrade your car's parts, but you'll have to find the money for it first.

"It's a very good sign for a game when even losing is fun. Even when you find yourself on the wrong side of a bad decision, staring at a broken bridge miles from anywhere with no fuel, in the rain while the sun is setting, you can't help but laugh," said Danny O'Dwyer in GameSpot's video review of Jalopy. "Like a banged-up car, [the game] is challenging, but Jalopy has a wonderful sense of charm."

There is a story underlining the bizarre road trip taken by your character and his uncle, but it's best to just dive in and experience what Jalopy is all about for yourself--especially since it'll cost you nothing to do so for the next couple of days.
