The Epic Games Store is giving away two free games this week with fantastic settings

The Epic Games store is giving away two free games this week, and they’re Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap.

Both games can be downloaded and kept for free until July 21.

The cult classic Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap returns and features hand-drawn animations and a re-orchestrated soundtrack. In it, you have been cursed by the Meka-Dragon and turned into a half-human, half-lizard being.

Your goal as Hu-Man or Hu-Girl is to search for a cure, as this is the only way to regain human form. This can be accomplished if you find the Salamander Cross, a magic item with the power to remove curses. Just know that for every dragon you kill, the curse will intensify and turn you into different animals.

While exploring interconnected locations populated by various monsters, you can inhabit Lizard-Man, Mouse-Man, Piranha-Man, Lion-Man, and Hawk-Man, and their unique abilities to uncover earth’s deepest secrets.

The game also features three difficulty levels and lets you switch between modern graphics and sound and 8-bit graphics/audio at any time.

Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms is also free this week. In this Dungeons & Dragons strategy management game, you’ll unlock champions from across the D&D multiverse, including fan favorites from novels, adventures, and live streams.

You’ll need to master each champion’s training abilities to complete adventures based on official D&D books like Wild Beyond the Witchlight, Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus, and Curse of Strahd.

The game features weekly content updates, new campaigns every year, new champions every month, and new in-game features frequently.

Next week’s free games will be Shop Titans and Tannenberg.
