I got you, you’re a car guy, and you dream of putting down that pedal across an open wasteland, running over bad guys, causing chaos and upgrading your sweet ride as you go. Well, when you get bored of eating roadkill every day you can jump in and test your skills on the track with Death Rally.
In Death Rally it’s all about some good old fashioned road rage as you race through an epic single-player or multiplayer campaign, upgrading your car, hammering on some weapons and causing maximum destruction on the track. You can even drive as the legendary Duke Nukem.
Buying Worms Armageddon? Pick up Frozen Synapse Prime for free
Debatably the best Worms game ever made (it’s not really debatable), if you’re itching for some couch co-op turn-based mayhem then no surprise, you’re getting Worms Armageddon. But maybe you wanna take your strategizing to the next level, well you’ll be picking Frozen Synapse prime as your free game.
With a massive single-player campaign and online multiplayer support, you take control of a squad of highly-trained units, issuing orders with varying levels of complexity. For example, you can move your units using a waypoint system and can issue various orders at each waypoint as well. It’s more than enough to get the budding strategist mulling over options and outcomes.
Buying Candle? Pick up State of Anarchy for free
So you’re an Indie gamer who loves beautifully crafted puzzles with adorable characters and sad depressing storylines that have life-affirming messages? You’re buying Candle aren’t you! Well, why not pair it with a fast-paced, top-down, Stick man style shooter? I mean it’s a match made in heaven right?
This combo is all about trying something different, State of Anarchy is a cheeky top-down crime simulator. Run around town, robbing banks, shooting cops and running down anyone in your path. Then go back to playing some Candle to soothe your road rage.
Silver Tier Free Games

Buying Kerbal Space Program? Pick up Evil Genius for free
Kerbal Space Program is one of those timeless classics for anyone with a fascination in space and space travel, using realistic aerodynamic and orbital physics, your job as the head of the Kerbal Space Program is to design and build a rocket that will take a team of daring Kerbalnaughts to the moon and beyond.
Now if you’re buying this game for the budding young scientist or engineer in your family then perhaps Evil Genius could be the ultimate accompaniment. Summoning all your planning skills you must build your dream evil lair, and amass enough technology to build the ultimate doomsday device and rule the world.
If you already have Kerbal Space Program, then why not take your space adventures to the next level with the Making History DLC, also on the sale as a Silver Tier purchase.
Buying Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2? Pick up Castlevania Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition for free
I’m not sure we need to say much here. If you love Castlevania, and I mean who doesn’t, then here is the ultimate way to catch up on these two PC classics.
Perhaps you recently purchased the Castlevania Anniversary collection (also available on our summer sale), well this is the perfect way to top up your collection with these two amazing games from the series.

Dragons, curses, exploration, action, adventure, Wonder Boy has it all. Travel across the lands to defeat the Meka-Dragon and free yourself of a magical curse that transformed you into a half-human lizard monstrosity. This is indie gaming at it’s finest, for all your budding little adventurers.
Once you’ve had your fill of dragons and curses, take to the skies in a side-scrolling adventure to save the kingdom of Zephyrus, armed with Sparksters trusty rocket, you’ll face off against the menacing Wolf Army in what we think is the perfect pairing of little adventures for little adventurers.
Gold Tier Free Games
For all your Gold Tier free games check you can check out the store page here.
Buying Prey? Pick up F.E.A.R. 3 for free
So clearly you’re the type that enjoys a good sci-fi scare with your FPS experience, so why not pick up one of the definitive franchises that started the genre of First Person Spookers (it’s a thing trust me).
F.E.A.R. 3 built on an already established franchise that brought together the quality shooting of Half Life and Counter Strike into a deep and terrifying narrative focused around Alma and her incredible psychic abilities. Pair this with the intensity of Prey and you’ve got yourself a perfect combo of action, mystery and a need for fresh trousers.
Buying Dragonball Fighter Z? Pick up Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition for free
So this was a hard one, we could’ve easily picked Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, Injustice 2 for the completionist or even Marvel vs Capcom (all in the sale as well) but ultimately we went with Dragonball Fighter Z because of its contrasting mechanics and visuals.
DBFZ emulates the ever-popular tv show with its anime-style visuals and upbeat over the top characters. Whereas Injustice is a dark and gritty depiction of our favorite DC heroes in a more grounded experience (ten points if you get that joke)
Buying Warhammer Vermintide 2 Collectors edition? Pick up Warhammer End Times Vermintide for free
Another combo for the collectors/completionists out there. This time we’re in the Warhammer universe with the Vermintide games. Jump in with your friends into the end times of the iconic Warhammer Fantasy setting as you work with your team to survive the invasion of the Skaven hordes.
If you’re a fan of this fantasy universe then these are must-haves in your video game collection, good thing we’ve got you covered.
Some other noteworthy combos include pairing Big Buck Hunter Arcade from the Silver Tier free games, with your purchase of Hunting Simulator. Maybe enjoy some high-speed space racing with Space ribbon as your freebie with a purchase of Stellaris? If you’re a pure DC comics kind of person though, and you’re buying a copy of Injustice 2, then you have a great comic book filled choice of taking either LEGO Batman OR Batman Arkham Asylum as your freebie from the Gold Tier games.
Remember that after you’ve picked your free game from us, you’ll still get to choose another 4 games from the Intel Starter pack to keep for free (Gold and Silver tiers only), to find out more head over to the Green Man Gaming Summer Sale store page.
