May we hold a moment of silence in memory of all the wallets emptied.
That’s right, the 2020 Steam Summer Sale is on!
I wasn’t planning on buying much but once again, that went out the window. Especially when you got another £5 off if your basket hit £30. I ended up spending around £37 in total. Not too bad all in all.
So, what did I buy?
Call of Cthulhu
I’ve had my eye on this title for a while because I love all things Lovecraftian. Plus I am a fan of Chaosium’s TTRPG, so I wanted to give their official video game adaptation a shot.
However, I heard a lot of mixed reviews so I was apprehensive.
So I decided to wait until a sale before buying it. The time game and I was able to get it for 70% off. Not too bad.
In Call of Cthulhu, you play as Private Investigator Pierce as he investigates the tragic death of the Hawkins family. Needless to say, there is something sinister lurking on the isolated Darkwater Island.
Can he escape with his sanity let alone his life? Only one way to find out!
PLAYNE: The Meditation Game
During the lockdown, I have been trying to work on my mental health. One major piece of advice that kept popping up during my research was to meditate.
I struggle with that.
So when I found a game that claims that 97% of players felt less stress after playing and the said game was on sale, I figured it was worth a shot.
Deadbolt is a stealth-action game that takes no pity on the player.
You play as The Reaper, tasked with completing assassination missions. Pretty standard.
Oh, except that you die from being shot once. So forget about charging in guns blazing, you need to think fast on your feet otherwise it’s game over.
When I saw this game on sale it reminded me of one of my favourite games, Party Hard and Party Hard 2. I just had to get it.
Like Call of Cthulhu, I have been interested in this game for a while but was put off by mixed reviews.
Draugen is a single-player, first-person mystery game. In the game, Edward Charles Harden, an American traveller, journeys to a small coastal Norwegian village looking for his lost sister.
With the help of his ward, Lissie, he must uncover the dark secrets that taint this beautiful place.
Unfortunately, Misfortune is well named.
Little Misfortune follows a little girl named Misfortune as she plays a game with Mr Voice to win eternal happiness for her mum. Sounds charming, until you remember that this game was made by the team who made Fran Bow.
Prepare for one hell of an adventure, Misfortune.
There is a free demo available, so consider giving it a try before the sale ends.
What did you add to your digital libary? Or have you been able to resist the siren call of the sale? Let me know!
