Weeklong Deals for 1/29/18

Alright, I’m done waiting for Steam to get their Weeklong Deals fixed. They still post them, of course, but don’t bother to make the filter work. So I’ve gone through all 800+ specials running right now to pick out the best and worst of what I’ve reviewed, just for you. And there’s a lot of notable stuff this week, lemme tell ya.

In other news, January is drawing to a close and that means Platformebruary is coming up fast. The regular schedule will be suspended for the month of February in lieu of daily reviews covering all kinds of indie platformers. The only thing I’ll keep doing is Weeklong Roundups like this on Mondays, but there will be no articles or indie reviews until March. Tomorrow we’ll have one more Curator Connect review (by popular demand), and then I’ll start the festivities on Wednesday with a special day-zero revision of an old platformer review.
