Conarium is free on the Epic Games Store right now

Get your Lovecraftian fix with Conarium, now available for free on the Epic Games Store.


The Epic Games Store might get a lot of hate, but for gamers looking to add on to their collection, it's one of the best places to go. This week horror fans can pick up a little indie gem called Conarium for free.

Developed by Zoetrope Interactive, Conarium is a "chilling Lovecraftian game that follows the gripping story of four scientists and their endeavor to challenge what we normally consider to be the "absolute" limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's novella At the Mountains of Madness, but largely set after the original story." The game takes players to the cold, ice-covered land of Antartica, where they take on the role of Frank Gilman as he tries to solve the mystery and discover what happened at the base. The game features a ton of secrets and easter eggs and honestly looks like something that would be easy to get lost in, especially on a spooky day like today, Friday the 13th. 

Conarium free on EGS

You can check out Conarium for yourself by heading over to the Epic Games Store. The game normally runs for $19.99, but you can pick it up for absolutely nothing this week. It's the perfect time to play a spooky game, so why not grab yourself a drink and enjoy the evening getting lost in a chilling, Lovecraftian world? Sure sounds like a nice way to spend the evening to me. 

On top of Conarium being free right now, next week will bring yet another free game on the Epic Game Store, so be sure to keep your eyes glued here to Shacknews, as we will be sure to cover that news when it is revealed.
