Free Steam Game To Keep Forever--But Hurry
Solve puzzles to save a tiny planet.
When it comes to getting free games, no platform is better served than PC. While all platforms these days are home to free-to-play games like Fortnite, it's mainly PC gamers who regularly get to scoop up free copies of games that normally cost money. Such is the case right now with The Tiny Bang Story. This PC and Mac game from 2011 is currently free for anyone to download and keep forever--provided you add it to your library before 10 AM PT (1 PM ET) on Tuesday, September 25.
The Tiny Bang Story is a puzzle/adventure game about a small planet that gets hit by a meteor. The impact destroys many of the machines that keep the planet going and disrupts life for the inhabitants. Naturally, it's your job to help put things back together.
This plays out through a series of hidden object hunts, jigsaw puzzles, and a variety of other mini-games. There's no dialog or text in the game, so younger kids might even be able to enjoy it. It's obviously not a triple-A blockbuster, but the Steam user reviews are "very positive." If you're ever looking to unwind with a relaxing game that sports an appealing art style, this ought to do it. And it's free, so you have nothing to lose.
As long as the deal's still running, you can add The Tiny Bang Story to your Steam account for free here. For deals on other Steam games, you can check out this sale that's currently running on the Humble Store, or you can always visit Steam's Specials page for a full list of discounts.
