Stephen’s Sausage Roll is 80% off at $5.99. The most mind-bending sausage-grilling Sokoban-like in the world.
Swarmlake is 49 cents. That’s only half off, but it’s cheaper than a can of soda. The developer of Refunct (one buck right now) applied his game-feel skill to making Devil Daggers but joyous instead of terrifying.
Monolith (also on itch but not on sale) is $4, half off. A take on the Binding of Isaac roguelike shooter formula that looks good and feels great.
Speaking of shooters, WE ARE DOOMED is the best score-chasing twin-stick on Steam, and it’s $1 right now, 90% off.
Rakuen is $5, half off. A sweet and totally earnest fantasy adventure that will bring you to tears if you let it.
The Deadly Tower of Monsters is $3, 80% off. The Zeno Clash/Rock of Ages developers made a loving, hilarious parody of sci-fi B-movies. It’s not an amazing action game, but it’s full of good jokes and sight gags, and the ending is something you need to see for yourself.
Linelight at $5 and 50% off is a slick puzzler that’s great at making you feel clever.
Open Sorcery for $1.35 is a Twine text adventure and the only fantasy hacking game.
Hadean Lands at $9 is just 25% off, but it’s a sprawling, genius thing. You should buy it on itch instead, where it’s just $6. It’s a puzzle text adventure (command-parser-style) where you use a robust system of alchemy to repair a magic starship.
OneShot for $6 is a lightly puzzly, very cute game about guiding a poor child who is not a cat to hopefully save a dying world.
