Because of currently having a pending rating of Offworld on PC and containing violence, Epic Games had to add a second title that everyone could enjoy and wouldn't be locked out for someone due to their in-store Parental Controls feature.

Epic Store has planned off to giveaway a total of three games, which are Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, A Short Hike and Mutazione next week. These titles will become available on March 12 on EGS and will be up for grabs until March 19, 2020.
