Weeklong Deals for 4/2/18

There’s a surprising density of excellent Weeklong Deals to be had at the moment, including some favorites of mine across several genres. Horror fans need to check out The Cat Lady if they haven’t (and can stomach it), retro platformer vets should look into Odallus, and puzzle-platformer types should give Tiny and Big a try. These are just a few stand-outs amidst a solid list of deals, so read on for the skinny on this big week!

Some of you may have noticed a phantom post briefly flit into existence last Saturday. That was a goof on my part, scheduling an incomplete post instead of leaving it a draft, but I doubt too many caught it. Still, you can expect something new and exciting (and complete!) this coming Saturday, something that I know folks have been waiting for ever since I asked about it…
