It's going to be Christmas soon. So happy holidays.

Also, what Doug says isn't an exaggeration. I had well over a hundred games back when I wrote the script for this, and it's been about a month since then, so I undoubtedly have many more. All of which were free!
How on earth are they affording this? Surely no one is actually dumb enough to buy anything from them.
Also, when is Epic going to make a Jazz Jackrabbit 3!

Honestly, I think they can get away with giving away so many free games because of all the money people spend on things like Fortnite Lootboxes or whathaveyou. If that IS where the money is coming from to be able to give away so many free games, then it gives you an idea of how profitable selling things that way is for a company.

I really can't think of any other way that Epic might actually be making money.

I absolutely agree.
If it wasn't for Fortnite, they'd no doubt be hemorrhaging money due to their business plan for the Epic Game Store.
It makes me wonder how long it'll be able to last. And whether or not it'll work out for them in the end.
