Weeklong Deals for 1/6/20

Welcome to the first Weeklong Deals of 2020! It seems this series of specious specials has itself evolved with time, now sporting some of the handy customization options prototyped in the Steam Labs. Give it a try if you’re so inclined to narrow the selection down to your ideal deals, or just let me do the heavy lifting for you below.

I’m intent on getting back to the full content treadmill this week, so expect website features every day from today through Friday. We’ve also got big streams planned, including the start of Devil May Cry 5 tonight, continuing it on Wednesday, and trying out Dragon Quest Builders 2 on Friday. And like I mentioned in our annual recap piece, we have a vibrant and growing community on our Discord that you really should consider joining. It’s about more than just games, with discussions of food, movies, and even a book club!

 

RING IN THE DEALS

Crypt of the NecroDancer (Review) – The rhythm-based roguelike you really should have played by now

Bit Blaster XL (Review) – Perfectly serviceable arcadey shooter

Shotgun Legend (Review) – Cute homage to the original Zelda

The Silent Age (Review) – Nice little low-key adventure game with some cool time-travel mechanics

Nihilumbra (Review) – A fine puzzle-platformer with a neat painting gimmick

Back to Bed (Review) – Compact puzzler featuring Dali-esque levels

Omega Strike (Review) – Not the most ambitious metroidvania, but very pretty and fun enough

The Little Slime (Review) – Very hard, very weird, and entirely worth trying

 

RING OUT THE REST

Hero of the Kingdom III (Review) – I hate that they messed up this chill series so badly, but this one is just no fun

Diamo XL (Review) – Neat idea for a score attack game, but not very fun in practice

Sinking Island (Review) – Could have been a fine investigative adventure game, if the mechanics weren’t garbage

Broken Armor (Review) – Wants to be a simple retro action thing, it’s just not that fun

Megamagic: Wizards of the Neon Age (Review) – Has a great retro 80s aesthetic… and that’s about it

Das Geisterschiff (Review) – Again, amazing look, terribly boring gameplay

The Body Changer (Review) – Another neat idea for a third person metroidvania that ends up bland and boring

Haunted Hotel: Stay in the Light (Review) – Survive the night games need better mechanics than this

Rebons (Review) – Boring challenge platformer

Twin Sector (Review) – Legendarily bad

Everybody Loves Skeletons (Review) – They don’t, actually
