I'm the same way, free games are free games, and actually cost Epic some money, so I'm down with that. Also it's been a surprisingly good source of games for testing purposes.

Latest 3DFM 1.74 (and HelixVision) has a fix for not automatically finding some of the Epic games. I went through the entire list and updated the profiles to match their random changes. Let me know if you have a game that is not found, but I think I hit them all.

Highly recommend both Layers of Fear and Q.U.B.E.2 this week. I already own both unfortunately, but both have excellent fixes thanks to DHR and Losti.

Q.U.B.E.2 is a good looking first person puzzler, Losti even included a hotkey to disable the hands so you can crank up the convergence to make the environment look amazing in 3D (You don't need the hands visually for solving the puzzles). FREE 3D games is always good in my book, no matter who is giving them out ;)

Nuclear Throne is one of my favourite twin-stick shooters/roguelites. Be sure to give it a try if you haven't already. And while talking off-3D-topic, I played through The Messenger this week through the $1 MS Game Pass special, and I must say that's one of the best games I've played this decade. I implore everyone to play that at their earliest opportunity. (like ponying up the $1 for MSGP now while you can. Can't go wrong for $1)

Oh man, simultaneously thanks very much for that tip, and also I hate you.

Great tip, there are some games worth taking a look at there for $1, including Outer Worlds. I can do some further testing with HelixVision, and see how these might work.

At the same time, this became a giant time sink, because Microsoft is the most retarded software company around, and makes getting this working a huge pain in the ass. The usual Microsoft error messages that read like "The flayrod ran askew on the treadle." Then you click help, and it takes you to some generic bullshit like "did you reboot?"

To sum up about 3 hours of research of why the f* does this not work- it *requires* 1903. No error message ever says that, but it does. Also use the XBox App, the Microsoft Store doesn't work. Because, you know, Microsoft.

Awww, yeah, I was already on 1903 so I was good to go. Sorry to hear you lost your time and patience, but hopefully you're now able to enjoy the selection. Go play The Messenger, I guarantee it'll make you feel better. :D

Not sure if you've seen the videos and are being sarcastic or if a serious question, so I'll answer as a serious Q to be safe.

No. It's a spiritual successor to the NES Ninja Gaiden games, so it's an 8-bit/16-bit 2D sidescroller. Hence why I said earlier "while talking off-3D-topic" referring to the fact it's an oldschool 2D game.

Heh! Yep, this is just shades of Games for Windows Live, and PTSD. Microsoft is unbelievably terrible at maintaining their software.

Just a heads up for anyone tempted to go this path- I'd recommend only doing this for the cheap intro or maybe one or two games that are interesting here. I'd bet money that Microsoft drops this entire thing 2 years from now, because they have never, ever put any real effort into PC gaming. If you bet on this horse, I bet you will lose.

You can get The Messenger as the current free game on Epic Game Store for the next week.

Just noting for anyone that might not be stoked about stepping back into the abuse the Microsoft provides with their gaming stuff. Current state of their "Xbox Game Pass for PC" is the usual Microsoft barely works, and locked down. Installed a game, wouldn't run. No error message, no forums to find out why. Uninstall, reinstall, then it works. Currently no modding that isn't expressly allowed by them. It's probably worth $1, but it's pretty annoying.

Just saw a pretty major game will be free Feb 13 - Feb 20 on EGS:

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

The massive role-playing game developed by Warhorse Studios will be available for free on the Epic Games Store alongside Aztez next week in its Royal Edition, which includes all of the DLC packs released so far.

I wish I could use that DLC on my steam copy, I still need to get back to finishing this game. It has an excellent 3D fix by Losti, and is an extremely immersive RPG. For free, I recommend checking it out!
