TowerFall Ascension official artwork and logo

The Epic Games Store has recently started its massive winter sale, as well as a rather nifty holiday event. Basically, every single day until January 1st, a brand new game will be completely and utterly free to grab.

Yesterday the game in question was the RTS/puzzle hybrid Into The Breach, while today we're looking at TowerFall Ascension - a 2D fighter with a focus on local multiplayer. If that sounds like something you'd be into, simply head on over to TowerFall Ascension's store page, log into your account or create a new one, and you'll be blasting apart pixelated monstrosities in no time.

I haven't played TowerFall Ascension myself, but judging by its user reviews, it is definitely worth a playthrough if you're into 2D action games. That said, while you can play TowerFall Ascension solo, it is the type of game that really shines in multiplayer. So if you can, do try and convince some friends to give it a try alongside you.

Have fun, and I'll leave you with the original launch trailer, just so you get a better idea of what you're getting yourself into.
