Weeklong Deals for 9/10/18
Sometimes it feels like Steam just throws up their hands and crams everything they can find into the Weeklong Deals, and it just happens to be one of those weeks. Every weird little indie experiment and anime title is discounted, along with all the SEGA classics and some actual notable stuff. Take a look at Lakeview Cabin Collection and Bunker Punks if you haven’t, those sales don’t come around often and they’re both quite good.
I’ve also got some fun news to share about this weeks streams, as I got in a couple recent releases to show off. Tuesday night on the horror stream we’ll look at Paratopic, a low-res adventure about running illicit VHS tapes across the border. Then on Friday I’m gonna dig into a shiny new soulslike called Immortal: Unchained and hopefully die in some entertaining ways. Both shows start at 9pm PST, so follow our channel to get notified when we go live.
Finally, I want to mention some very exciting progress on our Patreon page, because we’re currently just TWO DOLLARS short of our next goal! If we hit that mark, I can do one indie review a month selected by you, the readers. No longer will we be beholden to publishers to cough up keys for games you want to read about! Let’s make that happen before Spooktober starts so y’all can pick a horror game for me to cover!
That’s a YES
Lakeview Cabin Collection (review) – Side-scrolling slasher film chaos simulator, just as fun as it sounds
The Silent Age (Review) – Simple but effective point-and-click adventure
Bunker Punks (Review) – Rollicking Wolf3D-esque FPS roguelike
Hero of the Kingdom (Review) – The original chill-ass adventure title
Miasmata (Review) – Surprisingly hardcore walking sim adventure
Mutant Mudds Deluxe (Review) – Not the most ambitious platformer but still a solid one
Dark Fall: The Journal (Review) – Unapologetically old-school point-and click horror joint
Virginia (Review) – A fantastic, emotional story told through a not-all-that-great game
Two Digits (Review) – The basic addition game you’ve been waiting your whole life for
Silence of the Sleep (review) – Unconventional horror adventure with some great character moments
That’s a NO
Savage Lands (Review) – Last I checked it was a barren, dead EA survival game BUT it has new developers now…?
Dark Fall 2: Lights Out (Review) – Absolutely bizarre and boring follow-up to Dark Fall
Between Me and The Night (Review) – An object lesson in how not to do surrealism
Dexterity (Review) – Previously known as Wonderful Hand, I think the asshole that publishes it changes the name every few months so people don’t realize it’s the same shitty game
