Get Super Meat Boy For Free From The Epic Games Store

Posted by at 11:54 am on January 2, 2019

Splendidly deadly platformer Super Meat Boy is free to keep on the Epic Games Store if you grab it now. This is the second of the freebies luring people onto Epic’s new store since its launch in December 2018, following Subnautica (and if the carrot doesn’t work, there’s always the stick of exclusive games). For now, hey, if you install Epic’s client and register an account, you can get Team Meat’s ace platformer free.

If you want it, hit the Epic Games Store and grab it by 11:59pm EST next Thursday, January 10th (that’s 4:59am on the Friday for us here in the UK). You’ll need an Epic account and the client to install it, obvs.

Epic plans to give away one free game every fortnight until the end of 2019. They have said they’re funding these giveaways, not the devs. Epic must be putting a huge amount of money into the Store’s launch, between the giveaways and the hot exclusives. Fortnite has put Epic’s client on millions of PCs but the store is still barebones, with a slim catalogue and little extra context or content beyond basic marketing materials. But with the Fortnite reach and Epic only taking a 12% cut of sales (compared to Steam’s starting rate of 30%) certainly has some big developers interested.

Super Meat Boy’s follow-up, Super Meat Boy Forever, is one of the games that’ll launch as an Epic Store exclusive. It’s due there this year, then will hit Steam in 2020. Several other developers have confirmed their games will similarly be exclusive to Epic for one year.
