Weekend PC Game Deals: A minimalist freebie to grab, sports to try out, and more

Weekend PC Game Deals is where the hottest gaming deals from all over the internet are gathered into one place every week for your consumption. So kick back, relax, and hold on to your wallets.


To start things off, the Epic Games Store is offering another indie game to grab as part of its weekly giveaways. This week, the minimalist platformer LOVE is what anyone can grab for free and keep.

The 2014-released title offers a minimalistic platforming experience that has a focus on being challenging. Each level is formed from pixels using only three colors: black for the background, white for objects, and a different color for the platforms. While the difficulty can be high, the title lets players set up their own checkpoints.

The LOVE giveaway will last until January 25. On the same date, Zachtronics's puzzle game Infinifactory will become the next giveaway to drop in from the Epic Games Store.

Free Events
