Weeklong Deals for 11/4/19

As if we didn’t just come off a big ol’ sale, these Weeklong Deals are a veritable bounty of good stuff. Eastshade, Star Traders, Caves of Qud, Unforgiving, and Odallus are all pro picks, and that’s just off the top of my head. My list is heavy on roguelikes and adventures this time, but I can just about guarantee you’ll find something you want here.

Despite the ongoing internet issues at GPG HQ, we’re going to get back to at least attempting streams tonight with a prospective look at Abandon Ship. We’ll be doing one-off streams like this until we’re on a rock-solid connection again, and if we have to cancel one night we’ll just move that night’s game to the next. Kindly give our Twitch channel a follow to keep up with when we’re on and when things get back to normal.

One last note! Changes are coming to our Patreon that will give Patrons more opportunities to request games for me to review and give feedback on stuff. I’ll be announcing these changes tomorrow and pushing to reach our next funding goal this month, so if you’d like to get ahead of the game now, consider chucking a dollar our way each month!

 

I NEED IT

Sanctum (Review) – FPS tower defense is a fine concept, but is limited in scope here
