Epic recently announced it will continue handing out free PC games on the regular in 2020, which should be exciting to PC gaming fans. Just logging into the store every few weeks and grabbing the current freebie will net you quite a few games throughout the year. The freebie right now is The Bridge, a mind-bending indie puzzle game.

As always, all you need to do to snag the free game is create a free Epic account. Once you have The Bridge in your library, you get to keep it forever.

Developed by The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, The Bridge originally released in 2013. Rendered in black and white and inspired by Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher's mathematics-based artwork, it tells a fragmented story about a down-on-his-luck man. The goal of each of the 24 main levels is rather straightforward: reach the door. To do so, however, you must manipulate the environment, and the logic puzzles quickly become more and more elaborate. Once you finish the main story, you can try your hand at mirrored, much harder versions of the puzzles.

Writer Leif Johnson awarded the game a 7.5/10 in GameSpot's The Bridge review. "Although rage-inducing difficulty spikes exist, The Bridge generally offers a middle path that should appeal both to newcomers and to expert puzzle solvers," Johnson wrote. "The game's chief appeal may lie in both its unique visuals and its calming soundtrack, but the puzzles themselves are memorable set pieces worth revisiting after the first completion."

The Bridge is available for free at Epic until January 30 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. Next week's free game is Farming Simulator 19.
