Epic Games store is giving away another free game this week called Geneforge 1: Mutagen. It is an RPG game in which you find yourself far away from the planet Earth in an alien land. In the game you are creating mutated creatures for your army. You have to use this army to fight the enemy and take over the alien planet.
The game reminds of the older Microsoft games like the Age of Empires series where you control your army and expand your empire. You get attacked by many enemies many times and then you defend yourself using all the possible means. What makes Geneforge 1: Mutagen different, is that the players can create their own creatures using mutation and your special powers of creation.
You can add your powers to the mutated creatures, make them fight with the enemy and when they get crushed by the enemy, you can create even more mutants. There is also the option to use trickery, diplomacy and other channels to win a war without actually engaging in any war. It depends entirely on the player as to which path they choose – the path of diplomacy and talks or the path of war and destruction.
The game has very small system requirements – it can run on any Windows 7 (or above) PC with just 256 MB of RAM and any 2 GHz processor. This means that it can be run on any computer built in last 20 years. In fact the game was originally released in the year 2002 – 20 years ago. This also makes it very good candidate game for older computers. We can also run this game inside a virtual machine (Virtual Box) without any problem.
