Weeklong Deals for 4/30/18
Hey look, Weeklong Deals, imagine that! They’re all over the place this week, covering sims and horror, adventures and platformers. The Stronghold series is back up so if you haven’t jumped on the original or Crusader, now would be the time. Text-heavy adventure The Sea Will Claim Everything is another favorite of mine, and the very talented writer went on to do Omegaland which also happens to be discounted. There are lots of good deals this time, so surely you’ll find something you like for a dollar or two!
A quick note about the Stronghold games: Since I reviewed the series back in the Summer of Sim, both Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends have gotten major, unexpected updates. I’m not going to take down my reviews of them or anything but I won’t be including them on these roundups until I take another look at how they turned out. I have a feeling some major revisions might be in order.
And while I’m here, we’re FINALLY starting up a new review series tomorrow! I’ve been working on this one for months, suffering delays and setbacks, but it’s finally ready. Look out tonight for the Review Series page to appear sometime tonight, and the next two weeks to be filled with random drops of goodness (and some badness)!
