Steam is giving away what are essentially two games at no extra cost, they are literally free video games. Steam has a reputation for being one of the best places to play games on PC, thanks in large part to its great storefront. Not only is it filled with thousands of great games, but the store does a good job of discounting them and reasonably pricing some of the best games out there. While there are some games that are arguably a bit overpriced (like Call of Duty games from many, many years ago that were still $59.99), it’s a solid store that constantly gives its users a lot. It’s made even better by the release of the Steam Deck, which allows gamers to use their Steam library on the go via a Nintendo Switch-esque device.
For those who use Steam, you can get the game Republic and and the VR version for free! The game will also be given away in the Oculus store for Rift and Quest users. It is believed that the games will be made for free for the 10th anniversary of the developer, Camouflaj. The game was originally a mobile title, but over time it was ported to other platforms such as PC and VR. The game received mostly decent reviews, with its episodic releases on iOS receiving mid-to-high 70s on Metacritic. The developer was also entrusted by Marvel and Sony to create Iron Man VR for the PlayStation VR, a game that was used as a showcase for Sony’s VR headset and has since been bundled with many versions of the headset.
Republique and its VR version also appear to be free on Steam

At the moment it’s unclear what the developer’s next game is, but it’s believed they’ll be working on more VR titles. Either way, it’s hard to turn down free games. Even if you don’t want to play it now, you never know when you’ll get bored and want to try something new, so it’s worth adding it to the library!
