Weeklong Deals for 9/16/19

I’m usually pretty chill about Weeklong Deals but this time you really need to sit up and take notice. There are some fantastic games discounted this week that don’t come around often, along with fan-favorites like Reventure and LOGistICAL, and curiosities like Nantucket and Troubleshooter. I guarantee there are some good titles hidden down here amidst the hentai puzzles and programmer-art platformers… they’re just getting harder to fish out.

 

Yes, YES, YES
