You may already know Epic Games as the place you can head to every Thursday for a free game or two out of the publisher’s extensive catalog of Mac and PC games. Well, you might want to head over there right now even though it’s not a Thursday:(yes, in spite of the , summer is happening on schedule) and select games are marked down by as much as 75%.
