Weeklong Deals for 1/11/21

We did it! We survived HellYear 2020 and made it all the way to the first Weeklong Deals of 2021! And if you were expecting something new and exciting of Steams most specious deals… well, you haven’t been reading these features long, I suppose. This week at least we have a fine cross-section of games to consider, if you somehow didn’t get your fill of spending during the Winter Sale. Nova Drift should already be in your library, for one, and there are some solid builders and sims to check out as well. And for pure, unspoiled joy, Yoku’s Island Express will do right by you.
