The current free EGS game:

Frostpunk is a city-building survival videogame developed and published by 11 bit studios. Players take on the role of a leader in an alternate-history late 19th century, in which they must build and maintain a city during a worldwide volcanic winter, managing resources, making choices on how to survive, and exploring the area outside their city for survivors, resources, or other useful items.

Frostpunk received "generally favorable reviews", according to review aggregator Metacritic.

(Rated M for Mature. Blood, Mild S----l Themes, Mild Violence, and Strong Language.)

The PC version of the game - which is the one I played - came out in the late 90s. I may have a loose definition of "kid" though.

BTW, my age was discussed here

Currently free on the Epic Games Store is Offworld Trading Company, which has been described as "economic real-time strategy" and gotten good reviews.

And now it's free again until sometime on the 22nd (I still haven't played it).
So is Obduction, a sci-fi follow-up to Myst, in which, according to Wikipedia,
"The player finds their character transported to strange alien worlds but with human elements
within the settings. The player must explore and solve puzzles to figure out how to return home."

To be offered July 22-29 are tower-defense game Defense Grid: The Awakening (2008) and multiplayer WWI shooter Verdun.

while True: learn() is currently free on the EGS.
It's "a puzzle/simulation game about [...] machine learning, neural networks, big data and AI."

I think a different free game will be available each day on the EGS for about the next 2 weeks.
