Paradigm and Just Die Already box art

Double giveaways continue to drop from the Epic Games Store, but there aren't any big hits to claim this time like in recent weeks. The weekly promotion put up copies of Paradigm and Just Die Already Thursday.

Paradigm drops in as a comedic adventure involving a mutant with a dream of becoming a musician, who also has a helpful tumor on his head. Meanwhile, Just Die Already is from the Goat Simulator makers, but instead of a buggy goat, this time around you're wreaking havoc in an open world using old people who've just been kicked out of retirement homes.

The double freebie drop is available until Thursday, May 5, and the digital board game Terraforming Mars is coming up next, finally ending the double giveaway streak.

Humble Jurassic Evolution Bundle promo

That's not all, as a complete Jurassic World Evolution Complete Bundle has also come in from Humble. While there are three tiers to this collection as usual, there is only one game included in it: Frontier Development's Jurassic World Evolution.

It costs only $1 to get the base game but going up tiers adds plenty of DLC to keep your parks populated with new kinds of dinosaurs, storylines, and more. The beat the average tier adds nine DLC packs, while paying the full $12 gets you nine content packs in total for the full experience.

The bundle has over three weeks in its timer before it expires, so there isn't a hurry to decide if you want to build dinosaur parks. Don't forget about the Must Play VR and Visual Delight bundles from previous weeks too, which still have some days left on their promotions.
