Weeklong Deals for 4/1/19

As tempting as it is to post a fake roundup full of hentai game reviews today, I’m resisting the urge and focusing on the very real Weeklong Deals being offered. And what a dense bunch they are, featuring some common but very solid picks if you haven’t tried them yet. The Last Door, Dark Scavenger, and Unforgiving are all must-haves in my experience, and there’s also the Rusty Lake games, Stronghold titles, and more if you need something new to work through.

This week we’re looking at another Nintendo Switch review on Wednesday (though the game in question is also on Steam), and then hopefully a long-awaited look at the last big release from Chucklefish. Also more Yakuza 0 on tonight’s stream, more Roguelikes on Wednesday, Hypnospace Outlaw and Stephen’s Sausage Roll for reals on Friday, and some retro console fun on Saturday. How do I find the time for all of this? Seriously, I don’t know, someone tell me how to make time to do all these things.

 

Really good

Pillars of Eternity (Review) – If you’re fine with a super dense story and finding a good difficulty balance, this is an excellent and sprawling RPG

They Are Billions (Review) – Zombie survival RTS that’s chugging along to its full release

Stronghold HD (Review) – Great little castle simulator, featuring a great campaign and variety of missions

Stronghold Crusader HD (Review) – More content, more sieges, and more focused on warfare than the original

Superfighters Deluxe (Review) – Technically complex platforming chaos for those with the patience and friends to find it

The Painscreek Killings (Review) – Interesting and atmospheric murder mystery in an abandoned town

Rusty Lake: Roots (Review) – One of the best games in this series of macabre puzzlers

Race the Sun (Review) – Stylish, minimalist infinite runner that’s easy to lose time to

The Last Door (Review) – The first half of my all-time favorite cosmic horror adventure

Rusty Lake Paradise (Review) – Another solid and important entry in the Rusty Lake cosmology

Drox Operative (Review) – Rough around the edges, but one of the best and most open sci-fi ARPGs you’re going to find

Wuppo (Review) – Absolutely adorable and creative adventure masquerading as a platformer

Rusty Lake Hotel (Review) – The weakest of the Rusty Lake games on Steam, but also one of the most important

This Strange Realm of Mine (Review) – Unique mix of FPS and adventure mechanics

Dark Scavenger (Review) – AMAZING adventure game with super unique combat, if you’ve read this far just get it already

Unforgiving – A Northern Hymn (Review) – Fantastic first-person horror game that builds off of Scandinavian myth

DON’T DIE! (Review) – Decent little zombie puzzler

 

Really not

Bloody Trapland 2: Curiosity (Review) – A challenge platformer with terrible controls is not a good time

The Bridge (Review) – Pretty weak attempt at an Escher puzzler

Dead Effect (Review) – Dumb sci-fi zombie shooter without enough character progression to keep it interesting
