Weeklong Deals for 2/24/20

Get hyped for these Weeklong Deals because the headliners are definitely worth a look! Disco Elysium is simply one of the best games I played last year, Noita is one of the most fun of this year, and there’s loads of good games like SYNTHETIK and Sundered to round out the recommendations. There’s also a huge list of garbage to sift through too, some of which are pretty hilarious in their failings. Really it’s just a big ol’ week all around, whether you want to pick up something new and shiny or laugh at something old and busted.

Go for it!

Disco Elysium (Review) – The best that video game writing has ever been, full stop

Majesty Gold HD (Review) – Still a great hands-off kingdom management sim

Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons (Review) – Charming puzzle adventure that’s sure to tug at some heartstrings

Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart (Review) – Honestly one of my favorite hidden object games

Bit Blaster XL (Review) – Decent little arcade shmup

Chasm (Review) – A fun metroidvania, but clearly weakened by its randomized elements

Sinking Island (Review) – Could have been a neat murder mystery if the design wasn’t terrible
