Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes is an indie SRPG that does it best to parody the genre conventions by casting players as a hilariously emo drop-out soldier who has to defend a kingdom by rounding up the dregs of a maximum security prison. It's a fine idea, but poor localisation, some ropey RPG elements and bland visuals conspire to bring it down firmly into the niche and "only if it's cheap" camp. Luckily it is cheap, and provides 15-20 hours of play. Steam's offer will last until about 11PM.
