The Alto Collection, the two-game, one-button snowboarding (and sandboarding) series that Snowman launched five years ago, is available free for the next week on the Epic Games Store. This launch marks the PC debut for the second title, 2018’s Alto’s Odyssey.

Both games are available for Windows PC and Mac from Epic Games Store. For those who want to play it on a console, The Alto Collection also launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today, but it’s $9.99 from their online storefronts. A version for Nintendo Switch will follow sometime soon.

Alto’s Adventure, an endless runner set to super-chill music, launched in 2015. Players try to ride the procedurally-generated terrain as long as they can, performing backflips and grinds along the way to improve their score. Alto’s Odyssey is set in the desert, and adds wall-riding, balloon bouncing, and water-surfing to the array of tricks.

The Epic Games Store’s other free title, available now until Aug. 20 at 11 a.m. ET, is Remnant: From the Ashes. Players only need to create a free Epic Games Store account and install its launcher to claim the free titles Epic has been offering weekly since opening the store in 2019.
