Get Transistor Free on the Epic Games Store

Transistor is currently free on the Epic Games Store as the latest incentive to patronize this relative newcomer to the marketplace. This is available for the next two weeks for anyone with an account, and Epic also reveals the next giveaway after this is World of Goo, which will go free on May 2nd. They offer some screenshots from Supergiant's action/RPG along with the following description:
From the creators of Hades and Bastion, Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a stunning futuristic city.

Transistor seamlessly integrates thoughtful strategic planning into a fast-paced action experience, melding responsive gameplay and rich atmospheric storytelling. During the course of the adventure, you will piece together the Transistor's mysteries as you pursue its former owners.

No thanks would rather buy on both Steam and GOG.

I'll snag it for free...and that's it.

I got Subnautica for free and that's it as well.

I'm not going to pay for anything on Epic but if they give it away, well that's fine.

This was a decent game. Great sound track and an onion cutting ending. I think when it came out it suffered from not being Bastion.

Agree with you guys, good game and very good sound track. I would stop at the song points and stay awhile. Lighter

I see what you are doing there Epic. I'm taking your bribe, but it doesn't mean I'm going to like you from now on...

Between Epic and Twitch I am getting my indie/AA game supply filled for zero dollars. Well, I guess technically Twitch is because of Prime but I would be a Prime member regardless of gaming so it's zero additional money to me.

Throw in a Humble Bundle sub and I can be the aging gaming hipster I always dreamed of.

As far as I'm concerned, they can give away gold bars. I aren't going anywhere near that Epic nonsense.

HOW DARE THEY.

Played Transistor on PS4 when it came out, was quite good.

Steam and GoG don't give an incentive to the developer to do so.

Your premise is wrong already.

Neither EGS nor Steam nor GOG is really giving away free games.

The publishers are giving away free games. They are giving away free games either completely on their own terms (e.g. giving away the base game hoping to promote DLC sales or to promote the sale of a new title in the same franchise) or they might get incentivized by the game store to run a giveaway.

In case of the EGS giveaways it is the latter. The publishers get monies from Epic so Epic can promote their store with these freebies.

I'm very sure that Steam is not doing anything of this sort. When a game is given away on Steam it is the publisher giving away the game for some reason. In most cases, as stated above, to promote a new franchise title or in expectation to make money from DLC sales.

As for GOG, I could imagine that CD Projekt incentivizes some of the freebies to promote their store. They are mostly giving away ancient games anyway so the incentive costs are probably rather low.

Looks like Steam has people by the balls going from all these replies. Slaves to their large library of games on ONE platform unable to work without Steam. How dare competition to the monopoly try and give developers a better cut!

But Epic is supposed to be super evil and mean and bad. That makes Valve the good guys just trying to earn an honest buck and Steam a perfect service with no room for improvement.
