Steam users can grab two games that are free to keep and have Mostly Positive or higher review score, with one being a multiplayer title while the other is a singleplayer adventure.

Showdown Bandit became free to keep on Steam roughly one week before the writing of this article and it seems to be either an acquired taste or otherwise polarising game.

The players assume the role of a puppet that used to be a star in a children show that was abruptly cancelled. During the adventure, the player will get to visit various areas of the once glorious sets that served to amaze the children along with the puppet performers but have now fallen into disrepair.

Showdown Bandit features some horror elements but unlike most of the modern horror titles, the player is not entirely helpless against the foes. Then again, it is advised to avoid combat if possible. The game has an overall positive rating with 77 reviewers liking it enough to give it a thumbs up and you can grab it for free until 1 June 2020.

Geneshift: Battle Royale Turbo promotion kicked off more recently though and is only available for 48 hours, until 13 May 2020. The exact hour of the promotion's end can be seen on the previously linked Steam store page which should automatically show it in your local time zone.

As the name suggests, players will drop into an ever-shrinking area and duke it out with other players in high octane fashion. Those who die will get another chance as zombies and each round seems to last much less than what BR players might be used to, due to the sheer speed of the action.

Geneshift is still in Early Access so keep in mind that it is not a complete product. While the battle royale mode is the main selling point, it also features a singleplayer campaign.
