Weeklong Deals for 8/26/19
It’s a small week for Weeklong Deals, and where there is mostly falls outside my normal coverage. What there is to recommend is quite good though, particularly Star Traders: Frontiers, so it’s still worth having a look!
This week is going to be big for Reader’s Choice reviews, as I’ll have reviews of this month’s selections coming this week. Look forward to takes on Open Sorcery and West of Loathing, as well as nominations for the September reviews starting this Thursday. We’ll also be streaming more of West of Loathing tonight at 9pm PDT, and finishing Conarium on Wednesday. And I’ll probably have some other smaller features to look out for in between!
Star Traders: Frontiers (Review) – Incredibly robust and open-ended starship command sim
The Dream Machine (Review) – Fascinating and creepy claymation adventure through the realms of dreams
Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden (Review) – Supernatural hidden object game by way of Bioshock
OK/NORMAL (Review) – Creepy PS1-looking adventure game
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Review) – Absolutely baseline platformer, good for basic running, jumping, and collecting
Knights and Merchants (Review) – Absurdly clunky and over-complicated RTS
rooMaze (Review) – First-person roguelike dungeon crawl that hates you vehemently
