The Epic Games Launcher store has a search function now. This may seem like the kind of thing you'd expect it to have right from the start, but as Sergey Galyonkin explained on Twitter (opens in new tab), "We launched with three games, there was no need to enable search". Now there are slightly more than three games on the Epic Launcher—though still not as many as its competitors, of course—and so it has a search function. Galyonkin adds (opens in new tab) that "Once we have more games, we'll add more features, including pages", as right now the store is set to infinite scroll.

There are quite a few other features we'd like to see Epic add next, and you can have a look at our suggestions here (opens in new tab).

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games (opens in new tab). He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun (opens in new tab), The Big Issue, GamesRadar (opens in new tab), Zam (opens in new tab), Glixel (opens in new tab), Five Out of Ten Magazine (opens in new tab), and Playboy.com (opens in new tab), whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
