Unrailed art with Epic Games logo

The ongoing freebie train of the Epic Games Store made a stop this week to give away Unrailed, replacing last week’s Lawn Mowing Simulator.

This arcade party game is a four-player cooperative experience that has the group constructing railroads as the train keeps barreling forward. In the procedurally generated levels there are resources to harvest, bridges to build, mountains to dig through, and tracks to lay down at the same time.

Unrailed will remain free to claim until next Thursday, August 11, which is when Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3 will become a freebie on the Epic Games Store.
