Today’s lineup of Weeklong Deals will feel pretty familiar for regular readers… I know making it felt plenty familiar as I scrolled past page after page of hentai puzzle games. But there are a few notable additions, such as My Time At Portia and the South Park games this week. My pick this time is Dawn of Man, a nice, chill village builder where you can hunt mammoths and build Stonehenge to your prehistoric heart’s content.
You probably also noticed that I posted my promised Whispers of a Machine review this morning. What you might not have noticed is that the first game from that developer, Kathy Rain, is free on Steam today to keep forever. Considering how good Whispers is, I’d say this is one you’ll definitely want to grab.
