If you're planning on hitting up the Epic Games Store for your weekly free offering, you're in for a lot of crazy platforming, robots, pop culture references, and British humor. Horace, a cute game developed by the two-man team of Paul Helman and Sean Scapelhorn, is the story of a robot trying to reunite with his long-lost family. He'll have to travel through time and space to do it -- and solve plenty of puzzles. In addition to the platforming, players will also find plenty of mini-games ranging from rhythm games to FPS.

As is the case with all EGS freebies, Horace is only up for grabs for a week. After that point, you'll have to throw $15 down for the game. So, just be sure to get over there and grab it before next Thursday.
