STEAM SUMMER SALE: 14 CHEAP GAMES & BUNDLES YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED

 

Hello, you.

The Steam Summer Sale is in glorious swing but I’ve had about enough of sitting in yesterday’s underwear browsing the front page. Stop buying ARMA for £20 god damnit. A show of hands, too, who hasn’t bought S.T.A.L.K.E.R?

Anyway, while I’m in no mood for changing underwear yet, I have trawled through the cheerless depths to haul up 14 games or bundles you might have missed that are absolutely worth forking out a few quid for (they all come up less than £5).

Here you go then, cowboy. Wallet at the ready. Don’t blame me if they turn up on the front page tomorrow.

 

Time Gentlemen, Please! & Ben There, Dan That Double Pack - was £2.99, now £0.60 (85%)

Two rib-tickling point-and-click adventure thingies for 60p. Not much else to add, really. 60p.

Penumbra Collector Pack – was £15.98, now £3.98 (75%)

Couple of scare-fests from the people who brought you Amnesia. Shit yourself silly safe in the knowledge that you’ve saved enough pennies to buy a new pair of pants at the end of it all.

Section 8: Prejudice – was £9.99, now £2.49 (75%)

One of last year’s most undervalued first-person shooters. Show it the love it so deserves, just don’t track me down if nobody’s playing with you. (It has bots!)

World of Goo - was £6.99, now £1.74 (75%)

Coveted physics-puzzler about getting goo-balls up a chute. I’ve not done it justice: it’s won awards and boasts a whopping Metacritic score of 90. Pizza and bonuses for everyone! Oh wait, these guys are ex-EA.

DEFCON – was £5.99, now £2.03 (66%)

Fraught strategy affair about blowing up the world without getting your hands dirty.

Snuggle Truck – was £3.99, now £1.59 (60%)

Rescue all the teddies! Or don’t. Owlchemy Labs’ delightful physics-based 2D driving game is a bit like Trials but prettier and with a better sense of humour. Comes with a level editor and a wagonload of levels (20,000 apparently). Blimey.

The Dejobaan Complete Pack – was £14.99, now £3.75 (75%)

Includes several AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! games for 26p more than one AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! game. The Tony Hawk’s of base-jumping. Hurtle down through a tangle of skyscrapers while pulling off irresponsible stunts (just don’t forget to deploy parachute). 

Atom Zombie Smasher - was £5.99, now £2.99 (50%)

Masterful zombie apocalypse strategy number about knowing when to drop an orbital nuke on a primary school. All the time, baby. Buy this game.

Burnout Paradise – was £9.99, £4.99 (50%)

An oldie, but it’s still a great. Everything needed to get your vroom on for less than a fiver.

Cthulhu Saves the World & Breath of Death VII Double Pack – was £1.99, now £0.99 (50%)

I’m reliably informed these are well worth a punt and at £0.99, who the hell am I to argue?

Defense Grid: The Awakening – was £6.99, now £3.49 (50%)

Years on, still up there with the very best tower defence has to offer. Pay no heed to the laughable spelling, this one’s a classic.

Machinarium – was £7.49, now £3.74 (50%)

Charming point-and-click adventure from the chap that created Samorost. Beautiful inside and out, and a steal at £3.74.

VVVVVV – was £3.99, now £1.99 (50%)

Coveted platformer that lets you run around on the ceiling. Its outward simplicity belies its inner elegance; one of the finest platformers of the generation and well worth the £2 entry fee (and the heightened blood pressure).

Lone Survivor – was £6.99, now £4.54 (35%)

“In this psychological survival adventure” SOLD.
