Weeklong Deals for 6/8/20

We’re back to a big ol’ list of good stuff in the Weeklong Deals, along with a pretty entertaining roll of bad games, too. Bloodstained is definitely the big draw, but I will always come out for the likes of Titan Quest and Banished despite their age. Roguelikes, adventures, and even some strategy round out the week’s list, so you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy.

 

THRILLS

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (Review) – A reassuring reminder that the spirit of Castlevania games will live on

Titan Quest Anniversary Edition (Review) – One of my all-time favorite ARPGs, still getting patches and DLC

Banished (Review) – A cornerstone of the modern builder genre, small in scope and challenging in its own ways

Ash of Gods: Redemption (Review) – Pitch-black fantasy epic in the Banner Saga engine

Chasm (Review) – Decent metroidvania hurt more by its procedural generation than anything

Majesty Gold HD (Review) – A fine revival of this hands-off fantasy RTS

Wuppo (Review) – Impossibly cute adventure game masquerading as a platformer

How to Survive (review) – Odd little ARPG survival game with some rough design choices

Unforgiving – A Northern Hymn (Review) – Terrifying indie horror game built on Swedish folklore

Nihilumbra (Review) – Clever puzzle platformer, good gimmick
