Epic Holiday Gift for December 19th: Them’s Fightin’ Herds!

Are humans the best fighters around? I say, neigh! And today’s free Epic game, Them’s Fightin’ Herds, proves it. Let’s get into it!


The Basics

This is a fighting game where every combatant is some sort of quadrupedal herbivore: pony, goat, llama, sheep, unicorn, bull. Basically anything that could be categorized as part of a herd. The game has a season pass system for adding new characters, with the most recent being Texas, a bull from… uhm, Texas, presumably.

If the art-style reminds you of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, that’s because the studio started off by creating Fighting Is Magic, a game based on the Hasbro property where the 6 main characters from the show duked it out. After receiving a cease and desist letter from the toy maker, the studio removed the assets and created their own characters for the game.


The game is free to claim only until tomorrow, roughly 23 and a half hours from now, so grab it while you can! Epic also likes to provide a hint for the next game to become free, so if you want to try decoding the following gift box, let us know what the next title may be:
