Weeklong Deals for 4/15/19

This is one of those batches of Weeklong Deals that’s absolutely stuffed with games, and most of them are junk. Definitely not all of them, though, because I’ve got a list of sparkling gems here that you should not ignore. There’s also a good discount on Star Traders: Frontiers right now, which is our April Reader’s Choice review, so I’ll see about getting a review of that out on Friday if possible. If you’re into the whole telling-me-what-to-review thing, remember that we’re just a few dollars away from our next Patreon goal which will see me doing TWO Reader’s Choice reviews a month instead of just one!

One more quick note for the roguelike fans in the audience, Caves of Qud is getting a price hike this Thursday from $10 to $15. That’s still an insanely good value for the content you get, and on Wednesday night’s stream we’re going to spend a few hours showing why that’s the case!


It’s great!

It stinks!

ADR1FT (Review) – It’s very pretty, but ultimately a very boring space disaster
