Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

The Epic Games store is currently offering three free games, with a fourth coming next week.

Anyone with an Epic Games account can pick up Drawful 2, Gone Home, and Hob for free. But starting next week, mystery fans can step into the shoes of a world famous detective in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments.

Drawful 2 is a drawing party game from the makers of Jackbox games like Quiplash and Fibbage. Players can draw on their screens, while family, friends, or a streaming audience try and guess what the picture’s of. It’s a great game for staying inside and streaming to your friends or family.

Gone Home is an exploration based mystery game from The Fullbright Company. Originally released in 2013, Gone Home is about solving a family mystery. Meanwhile, Hob is an action-adventure game set in a colorful world. Players take control of a little character with a giant arm, and adventure to save the planet.

Drawful 2, Gone Home, and Hob are all available for free through April 9. On April 9, players can download Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments.

Crimes and Punishments is a Sherlock Holmes adaptation that allows players to enter into the detective’s mind to solve crimes. The game comes with six different cases for the titular detective to solve. It’ll be free until April 16.
