Epic posted a video today announcing that eight indie games are coming to the Epic Games Store, including beloved mobile games Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey as The Alto Collection, which everyone loves for their delightful art style and polished snowboarding gameplay. It’ll be the first time the second Alto game is accessible on PC.
- Ooblets, a Pokémon/Harvest Moon/Animal Crossing-inspired game
- Wattam, the next game from the creator of Katamari Damacy
- Manifold Garden, an investigation puzzle game
- No Straight Roads, a music-inspired action game
- Eternal Cylinder, a survival game on an alien planet
- Airborne Kingdom, a game wherein people build an aircraft to investigate a desert
- Superliminal, a puzzle game where people manipulate objects dependent on their point of view
People may recall that Ooblets, Wattam, Manifold Garden, and Airborne Kingdom were originally declared for Steam, yet it shows up they’ve escaped. Epic, floated by the enormous accomplishment of Fortnite, offers developers a generous 88 percent of the income from the sales of their games and lots of cash explicitly for remaining selective to the Epic Games Store as approaches to attract gamers away from top dog Steam.
Everyone does realize that one game will make its way back to Steam: Manifold Garden developer William Chyr tweeted that the game will be a year Epic Games Store exclusive.
Epic says it might quit paying for special features inevitably, however, the present news appears to show that it won’t stop the practice in the close term.
