Weeklong Deals for 3/16/20

If you happen to find yourself with an excess of time on your hands these days, there are plenty of good ways to spend it in the Weeklong Deals! Some personal favorites like Gris and OneShot have come back around, and there’s also an Ubisoft sale on if you’re low on Annos and Far Crys. Far Cries? Either way, now’s your chance to stock up on shootmans.

I’ll be pushing to get out some overdue reviews of recent releases this week, chief among them Morels: The Hunt and The Void Rains Upon Her Heart. We looked at both during streams last month and both deserve more attention than they’ve been getting. Speaking of streams, we’ll be finishing Yume Nikki this week so be sure to pop on over to our Twitch channel sometime to vote on what our next Monday game will be. We use Dragon Coins (channel points) to vote, and if you need some, you can always pop in for a stream or two while we’re live!

Broforce (Review) – Hilariously chaotic platform shooter

OneShot (Review) – One of the most clever, heartwarming RPGMaker-style adventures around

Thumper (Review) – A brutally intense rhythm game

Shadowrun Returns (review) – More of a proof of concept for the games that followed, but still fun in its own right

Book of Demons (Review) – An on-rails papercraft Diablo 1, and really quite fun for it

RUINER (Review) – Violent and flashy cyberpunk brawler

Shadow Warrior (Review) – A shockingly good revival of the FPS franchise that, if anything, goes on for too long

Momodora: Reverie Under The Moonlight (Review) – Charming and challenging metroidvania with some excellent atmosphere

Tobari and the Night of the Curious Moon (Review) – A challenging platformer, but one with loads of neat secrets to find

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride (Review) – One of the more colorful and engaging hidden object games out there

Dead Effect 2 (Review) – Kinda dumb sci-fi zombie shooter, but redeems itself with a wild array of character progression

One Way Heroics (Review) – Classic roguelike with JRPG trappings and a very cool gimmick

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition (Review) – Not the ideal way to experience this classic, but still a fine game

Black Mirror II (Review) – A big step up from the previous game in all-around quality, and a good enough place to start

Black Mirror III (Review) – The best of this gothic horror trilogy, though very much the conclusion to the second game rather than its own title

Shotgun Legend (Review) – Fun little take on the classic Legend of Zelda

Unholy Heights (review) – Combination management sim and tower defense game with a thick layer of Japanese weirdness
