[Update]: As expected, TABS has now been replaced by FTL as the freebie game of the day.

As you're probably well aware at this point, the Epic Games Store is currently running a rather large giveaway. Every single day until January 1st a brand new game will become entirely free, with today's offer being the excellent Early Access indie game Totally Accurate Battle Simulator.

All you really need to do in order to grab TABS is to head on over to its store page, log into your account or create a new one, and you'll be good to go. The one thing you might want to watch out for is the timer given that TABS will only remain free for another three or so hours, after which it appears to be getting replaced by another indie classic - FTL. So make sure to grab TABS as soon as you can, or you might just miss your chance!

On the topic of whether TABS is actually worth your time, I'd say the answer is a resounding yes if you're a fan of sandbox games. There's a boatload of different units to play around with, unique and often ridiculous interactions, and just enough raw chaos to make each match feel like it can go both ways. More importantly, it's not every day you get to watch people throw clams at Leonardo da Vinci while his fanatical squad of cheerleaders makes his tank turn into a literal cannonball tornado!

Have fun, and I'll leave you with a trailer for the somewhat recent Renaissance faction:
