Should You Play Supraland? Free This Week On Epic Games

By: Mr Constantine


Superland, another title that Epic Games is giving out for free this week on their platform. If you haven't heard of it before, supraland is a first-person puzzle game. The game took a lot of inspiration from Zelda, Metroid and Portal. It was first released back in 2018, and has received a lot of overwhelmingly positive reviews from Steam, ShackNews and OpenCritic. Epic Games will be giving this title away for free from June 16 to 23. As we all know, since it's free, you should definitely get the game from the Epic Games Store, since it's only a one time thing. But of course, if you're still unsure on whether or not to play it, let's dive into the aspects of the game, so that you can finally decide whether or not to spend 12 to 25 hours on this game.

Starting off with the first aspect of the game, we're going to be taking a look at its visuals. Obviously, this may not be the most important aspect of the game and shouldn't really be a decision maker on whether or not you should play it, but it might be important for some of you guys out there. The visuals of Supraland are pretty good. The game was developed in Unreal Engine 4, and it does look a little bit familiar with other games that are developed with the same engine, but that doesn't generally mean that it's bad.


The game has a cartoony look, and the map is filled with a lot of interesting locations that will really catch your eye. It isn't as minimalist as the games it took inspiration from such as Portal 2, but it isn't very complex to the point where you can't solve puzzles because there are way too many things on your screen. Overall, the visuals are a perfect balance between minimalist and complex. The cartoony look is also nice to look at, and the graphics still hold up to this day.

Next up, we have the game’s narrative. Unlike other games that have been free on the epic game store such as GTA V, Saints Row 3, BioShock and many more, Supraland isn't really a story driven game. But it still has a story that is quite intriguing. You are the prince of the red people in Supraland, and your mission is to figure out why the blue people are messing with your water supply. Your entire world resides in the sandbox of a youngster who, according to legend, spent six hours creating the complex setting. Overall, this plot is amazing and it gets more and more interesting as you play the game. But despite this great plot that definitely gets a ton of people hooked, it isn't the biggest part of Supraland. What is the biggest part of Supraland is its gameplay.

Speaking about gameplay, this is the next criteria we’ll be discussing. Let's first dive into the length of the game. Supraland is roughly 13 hours long when you focus on the key objectives. If you're a gamer who wants to see everything there is to see in a game, you'll probably spend roughly 23 hours to get 100% completion. Anyways, in the game, your character, the son of the Red People's King and Queen, is tasked with crossing the sandbox to speak with the King of the Little Blue Plastic Toy Figures about your ongoing war. Getting there becomes a tremendously difficult job, involving a vast number of places and an ever-growing pile of tools and equipment with which to solve puzzles, open doors, and traverse obstacles.


There is also combat, which is competent, with a mix of ranged and melee weaponry, as well as alt-fire modes that allow for combo attacks However, it is frequently needless, and it is the one aspect of the game that turns repetitive. When it comes to the rest, every single one of the puzzles are fresh, they offer something different, and you really need to think carefully to get through obstacles. They make the game feel challenging and even if you're stuck in some parts, you can do other things and get back to them later. All in all, the gameplay is great with engaging puzzles and it really can bring you back to your childhood.

In summary, Supraland offers some decent visuals that still hold up to this day, the cartoon playground art style also will bring back some childhood memories. It also offers an interesting narrative that will keep you motivated to play the game in order to see what happens next, and the gameplay is fresh with puzzles that are similar to Portal 2, Metroid and Zelda. All in all, you should play this game, it has a lot to offer. If you're looking for a game that you can play to kill time, you can simply play Supraland for 13 to 25 hours and it would only feel like you played it for an hour.
