The Epic Games Store’s latest freebie is Supraland, a first-person Metroidvania puzzle game designed by David Münnich, one of the minds at German developer Supra Games. Inspired by classics that include Zelda, Metroid, and Portal, Supraland drops players into a big sandbox world, one where they’re tasked to solve puzzles and discover new abilities in order to traverse deeper into its regions and uncover its bigger secrets. Epic Games Store users have until next Thursday, June 23 at 11:00 a.m. (EST) to grab a free copy of the game, which is normally priced at $19.99. Supra Games’ other projects include Supraball, a first-person football game that stars similar characters.
The deeper you get into the game the more you will be facing creative puzzles you’ve never seen anywhere before, encouraging you to stop and think about what abilities you have and how you can use them in yet another way. Puzzle types that I already knew from other games were immediately rejected in the design process. And it’s important to me that once you understand the idea behind a puzzle, you can pretty much immediately solve it instead of having to go through a cumbersome, frustrating execution.
