Weeklong Deals for 8/3/20

How’s this for a pile of Weeklong Deals? Looks like the entire TinyBuild catalogue has shown up in this hallowed place, so now’s the time to get your Noitas and Streets of Rogueses. There’s a high volume of FPSes and roguelikes in general this time, but the list is so long that it’s sure to touch on every genre you can imagine. Tons of indie gems are hiding out there this time, so don’t miss out!

 

Signs point to yes

Noita (Review) – Platformer roguelike that truly understands the joy of total chaos

Graveyard Keeper (Review) – A twisted take on the Stardew formula that is, in many ways, more relaxing

Streets of Rogue (Review) – Shockingly open-ended roguelike adventure

Eastshade (Review) – Truly lovely first-person adventure that’s like Oblivion with no combat

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger (Review) – Brilliant Wild West FPS featuring some amazing storytelling

MOTHERGUNSHIP (Review) – Stylish, chaotic FPS roguelike where you can make the dumbest guns imaginable

Unworthy (Review) – Decent attempt at 2D Dark Souls, but terribly frustrating at times

Sanctum 2 (Review) – A fine evolution of the first-person tower defense of the first

A Story About My Uncle (review) – Charming first-person platformer across alien worlds

The Final Station (Review) – Unsettling pixel art horror adventure about watching the world go to hell

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (Review) – Played straighter than Gunslinger, but still a decent Wild West shooter

Hand of Fate (Review) – Amazing mix of dungeon-crawling, deckbuilding, and third-person action

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition (Review) – Fixes all the problems of the original release, leaving a very solid metroidvania

The Flame in the Flood (Review) – Rustic roguelike adventure that’s all about the atmosphere

City of Brass (Review) – Thrilling roguelike FPS with some very unique mechanics

Catmaze (Review) – Charming indie metroidvania steeped in Slavic myth

Submerged (Review) – Not much for gameplay, but this lush adventure offers some amazing scenery

Hero of the Kingdom: The Lost Tales 1 (Review) – Weak recommendation for this one, as the series seems to be losing it’s heart

Sanctum (Review) – Decent attempt at an FPS/tower defense hybrid, but lacking on depth

The Count Lucanor (Review) – Fairytale horror adventure with loads of heart

Sir, You Are Being Hunted (Review) – Pretty good attempt at open-world stealth

Teleglitch (Review) – One of my all-time favorite survival horror roguelikes

Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden (Review) – Sort of Bioshock as a hidden object game, and pleasantly cheesy to boot

Skautfold: Usurper (Review) – Unique and challenging metroidvania

Miasmata (Review) – A truly hardcore and engrossing walking sim

9 Clues: The Secret of Serpent Creek (Review) – Hilariously B-horror hidden object game

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi (Review) – Janky, dated, and ultimately very cool roguelike FPS

The Light Keeps Us Safe (Review) – An incomplete stealth horror adventure with incredible atmosphere

Ghoulboy (Review) – Solid retro platformer that manages to get the difficulty right

 

Outlook not so good

Pacify (Review) – Now you can outrun stupid Unity ghosts with your friends!

The Bridge (Review) – Desperately wants to be MC Escher clever, and very much is not

Darkstone (Review) – I don’t even think this one was good when it was new
