Weeklong Deals for 3/1/21

Back again! Last week was a bit too hectic to fit in our customary rundown of deals, but we’re all over the Weeklong Deals this time. It’s a bigger, fresher list than usual, with some newer names slotted in between old standbys of this roundup. Caves of Qud is a permanent recommendation, of course, but there’s weird, wild stuff like Paradise Killer and Fight Crab up for more discerning types.

We’re deep in the throes of classic gaming on our Twitch channel, but we’ll take a little time out this week for some good ol’ indie games. Namely, we’ll be starting what’s planned to be a full playthrough of Loop Hero when it releases on Thursday, and on Friday I plan to dip into quite a cross-section of inventive indie adventures.
