Weeklong Deals for 7/29/19

You can always count on me to unearth Weeklong Deals both foul and fair, even if Steam itself does a crappy job announcing them. This round is mostly deals that have been around before, but includes some real indie gems like Brigador and Tower of Time.

There’s always plenty going on here and on our Twitch channel, but today I want to direct you to our current August Reader’s Choice nominations. Every month I let people nominate games for me to review, and then we vote on what everyone wants reviewed and take the top two. I’m adding an extra day to the current nominations, so if there’s a game that fits the criteria ($20 or less, short) that you’ve been curious about, nominate it! You don’t have to be a Patron to nominate either, just make a Patreon account if you don’t have one and comment your nomination right on that post.
