freebies for this week are now live and they're definitely worth adding to your PC collection. The Banjo Kazooie-inspired Yooka-Laylee
from UK studio Playtonic and Blue Manchu’s first-person rogue-light Void Bastards
Void Bastards is well worth checking out for fans of first-person action and rogue-light meets survival mechanics. As per our review
, "Void Bastards is solid, fun, and genuinely rewarding. The combat mechanics not only facilitate a wide range of playstyles, but you’ll begin to employ new tactics the more you understand the world, the enemies, and just how everything works. Whether you’re being stealthy or outright flamboyant in your pursuits of slag and biomass and plaz, Void Bastards offers up a fresh and engaging take on the first-person rogue light in a package that has the gameplay to match its vibrant art style."
Yooka-Laylee may didn't quite hit the greatness we were hoping for, but as per our review
it's definitely something for fans of the '90s era 3D platformer. "Regardless of its few missteps, Yooka-Laylee is a modern-day 3D platformer well worth playing. A triumph even. It captures the essence, humour, design, and mechanics of a late ‘90s platformer called Banjo Kazooie right down to having any and every object you can interact with talk to you in a jumbled squawk of mumbled, cute, and often annoying sounds."
