For the next three days, you’re able to take a trip to Tacoma – for free! It’s just unfortunate that everyone on the space station is gone, and it’s up to you to figure out why.

Tacoma is a narrative-based single player game. Some have pejoratively referred to these types of games as “walking simulators.” But these people underestimate just how difficult walking is. You can trip, step is stuff, accidentally bump into someone and get your butt kicked. Fall down an open manhole. Walking is far more dangerous that you’d ever imagine.

Most walking simulators are far less dangerous, and the ones that are tend to allow you to reload easily. Still, it’s a pretty reductive term to describe games where the emphasis is the story. But what do I know? I’m just a dude on the internet talking about video games.

Be that as it may, you have until March 24th to grab the game from Humble Bundle – or until the free copies run out. So chop chop.
