    It's more action/shooter than the first game. Also, IIRC, it's more like pop culture TV versus the serious type of TV that the first one went for.

    Princess Remedy 2 is free on Steam for another two days or so. It’s a retro (ZX Spectrum?) bullet-hell shmup, from the reviews. The first game is permanently free.

    The designer, Daniel Remar, apparently made some free games, like Iji, that are pretty good: http://www.remar.se/daniel/games.php

    Different. The first one goes for a slow paced, serious sci-fi/horror with some suspense and mystery. The second game goes for a faster pace, pop-culture type sci-fi/horror, and more action and shooting mechanics.

    I enjoyed them both, but I like the first one better. OTOH, some of my friends liked the second one better because it was more action oriented.

    Regards,
    SB

    Two DLC for Surviving Mars are also free at Epic (one major, one minor). You’ll have to scroll down and find them nestled among the rest.

    Cyberpunk horror game. The year is 2084. If you somehow survived the Nanophage, odds are you were killed in the War. Those who live have turned to drugs, VR, neural implants— anything to distract themselves from this new reality. But they can’t hide from you. Play as an Observer, the new front line of neural police, as you hack into the jagged minds of the insane.

    Company of Heroes 2 is now available for free on Steam for keeps for those who grab their copy of the real-time strategy sequel over the weekend.
    The game's DLC is also now on sale, but there's an additional freebie for those who sign up for their newsletter,
    as they will get the game's Victory at Stalingrad for nothing.

    The Messenger is a retro-platformer with an interesting twist. It starts off like a fairly standard action-platformer from back in the day, but soon turns into "an expansive time-traveling adventure" that makes use of both 8-bit and 16-bit graphics and audio. And not just for visual flavor but as an actual mechanic: Players can swap between the two styles mid-level to solve puzzles, for instance. In late 2018 it got a new Game+ mode with a more challenging difficulty, and earlier this year new levels were added in the free Picnic Panic DLC. And now it's free for the week on the Epic Games Store: Hit the page, click the "get" button, take it from there.

    Serial Cleaner (Steam key) free on Humble for the next three days if you subscribe to their newsletter.

    If you’re already subscribed, it’ll say so when you click and still give you a key (which you have to redeem or at least reveal within six days, for anyone who’s not familiar with Humble giveaways). Worked for me now and in the past. Have you tried it?
