Epic has announced its next free game on the Epic Games Store – ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove.
The game will be free to dip your toes in from 13th to 19th October and will replace Rising Hell and Slain: Back From Hell, which are currently free to download.
Back in the Groove is a “funky fresh rogue-like adventure infused with old skool hip-hop and jam packed with awesome throwbacks to the 1991 classic”, according to the Epic store page.
The game features four player online and local co-op as players navigate planet Earth to retrieve the lost pieces of the Rapmaster Rocket.
ToeJam & Earl was originally released in 1991 for the Sega Mega Drive and featured a very similar plotline, with references to 80s and 90s hip-hop culture. It’s considered an early example of the roguelike genre.
Rising Hell is a vertical platformer rogue-lite, while Slain: Back From Hell is a heavy metal inspired platformer. Download them both quickly if you’re interested in playing.
