GOG is offering the PC version of SOMA completely for free. This is a sci-fi horror title from the creators of the seriously spooky Amnesia: The Dark DescentSOMA takes players deep beneath the ocean, resulting in a constant state of anxiety as the water, and many terrifying enemies, act as obstacles. Normally costing around $29.99, this offer is well worth signing up for. Simply enter your email and create an account, then add the game to your basket and checkout.

Super Meat Boy (PC)

Download the Epic Games client (which you will already have for the free Subnautica offer, or if you play Fortnite), and you’ll find Super Meat Boy now available to download and play for free on PC. This intensely difficult, yet incredibly addicting, platformer is absolutely worth the download for any PC gamer, as it runs on even the most basic hardware (including integrated laptop graphics!).
