Friday Freebie 3rd July: Hue

We’re back with the second edition of our new Friday Freebie feature to highlight games that you can play for absolutely free over the coming weekend.

Every Friday, we’ll strive to give you a heads up for any notable giveaways, free weekends, and or other special promotions, this is your one-stop-shop for gaming without burning a hole in your wallet.

We had hoped to bring you the word of a giveaway for Conan Exiles, a nudist survival barbarian sim from developer Funcom. Sadly for whatever reason, this giveaway has been canceled. Epic announced that they would not be proceeding with the giveaway that they had previously announced, without giving any kind of explanation.

Not sure exactly what the problem is, or what exactly changed in the week since they announced this giveaway. Let’s hope they don’t make a habit of this.

Fortunately, their other giveaway for this week has gone ahead as planned.


Hue is a Puzzle-adventure game, from developer Fiddle Sticks. As the name implies, it’s all about color – the player brings to life a drab grey-scale world by altering the background with colored fragments collected along the way. Overcome obstacles and solve puzzles as you set out on a journey to find the protagonist’s missing mother.

Grab it today, for the price of absolutely nothing, from the Epic Game Store.

As is customary with Epic Games Store freebies, this is available for a week. Make sure you pick it up before July 9th, and they are yours for all-time, or at least, as long as the Epic Games Store exists.
