Epic Games have once again upped the tempo with their free game offers, which is mighty nice considering the ongoing health crisis around the globe. So, Gone Home and Hob are added to the offer, as well as one fresh release.

The fresh release we're referring to is Totally Reliable Delivery Service, a quirky physics game that lets you "join up to four friends to haphazardly deliver packages!" Developed by We're Five Games and published by tinyBuild, the game will be free until 8 April 2020. 

As for the regular weekly offer of free games, first up is most definitely a gaming delicacy, not least for influencing a number of games that came after it - Gone Home. 

Gone Home is a first-person exploration game developed by The Fullbright Company. It launched for PC and Linux in 2013 but its popularity eventually led to it being ported to all the major platforms, albeit at a later date. 

The game puts players in the shoes of Katie Greenbriar, whose return home from overseas turns into a detective story. Coming back, she finds the home deserted and a note telling her to refrain from investigating what happened. 

She, of course, disobeys and continues to uncover the mystery, but we'll stop there, just to make sure you experience the game in all its glory. 

As for the second freebie, Hob comes from Runic Games, the studio behind the Torchlight franchise. We're talking about a delightful Zelda-like title, that's sure to give you plenty of fun, especially if you're a fan of the genre. The trailer should fill you in on the rest.

Totally Accurate Delivery Service is available until 8 April, whereas Gone Home and Hob are free from 2-9 April 2020, as part of Epic's standard weekly free game cadence. 

You can find the free games on the Epic Games Store
