Conarium is currently free on PC
PC owners can currently pick up a free copy of Lovecraftian game Conarium from the Epic Games Store.
“You, as Frank Gilman, open your eyes inside a room filled with strange, pulsating noises. Patterns of lights executing a Danse Macabre on the walls is presented by a queer device on the table,” the game’s description reads. “Having recalled nothing other than that you’re in Upuaut, an Antarctic base located near the South Pole, you find the place deserted and have a distinct feeling of something being terribly wrong.
“Somehow knowing that your memories cannot guide you enforces a strange feeling of vulnerability, a familiar yet alien sensation of being a part of a peculiar whole… Soon you will discover that having used the device during the expedition, you have died but then returned subtly changed, speaking of strange memories and of strange places. You have lost something important or gained something sinister…”
Conarium will be free to download from the Epic Games Store until September 19th.
As for the next free game, Epic is keeping it a secret for now. Over on the main store page, there’s a teaser image hinting at a Batman game, but we’ll have to wait until September 19th to find out what it is.
