Epic Games Store giveaways are good for gamers because the games are, you know, free. Obviously they’re good for the Epic Games Store, too: You may not like how it compares to Steam, but the odds are pretty good that you’ve put together a sizable EGS collection by now. But Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney told Gamespot that they’re also good for the game companies who give them away, because they boost sales on other platforms and storefronts.

“You’re not going to go out and buy—If you’re not into games like Satisfactory, you’re not going to go out and spend money to buy Satisfactory. But if you get it for free you realize it’s an awesome game. People have discovered a lot of great games that way,” Sweeney said.
