The iconic 2D-to-3D puzzle video game Fez is now available for free for a limited time on PC via Epic Games Store. This marks the latest free game on the platform, which is something Epic Games has been doing every week for some time now with Fez simply being the latest video game to be featured.
It's worth noting here that the games being offered by Epic Games Store are not limited trials or anything of the sort; they are free to keep, with the only qualifier being that they are attached to an Epic Games Store account. This sort of thing is fairly common for other retail stores, so it's not like Epic Games store is alone in this endeavor. (See also: Uplay's currently free PC version of For Honor.)

Here's how the Epic Games Store describes Fez:
