Weeklong Deals for 4/13/20

The hits just keep on coming with these Weeklong Deals! It’s a particularly good time for roguelikes, with some genre headliners like Immortal Redneck and Caves of Qud on sale. And there’s plenty more out there for fans of not permanently dying, including horror classics like The Last Door Season 2 and Sanitarium, and some excellent sims like Patrician III and Grand Ages: Rome for only a few dollars. I hope these rock-solid weeklong lineups continue, even if they are keeping me busy with long lists!
