Steam's Thanksgiving sale is in full swing (as you doubtlessly know), but as an aficionado of Indie games, I can't help but feel that some of the smaller titles offer some of the the most worthwhile savings. From the puzzling prowess of Vessel to the deadly delights of EYE: Divine Cybermancy, I've reviewed plenty of cracking left-field titles over the last few months, and many of them can now be picked up for pocket money prices.
Note that all of the following are on sale until November 27th, and I've included links to our reviews where possible.
- One of the best indie puzzlers in years. Massive quality, content and value for a bargain price. Buy it.
E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy | £1.24
- Rough around the edges, but an incredibly ambitious Deus Ex-style shooter nonetheless. Features addictive persistent character creation through multiple playthroughs with branching storylines.
- Gorgeous Unreal-powered balls.
- This anarchic Swedish RPG makes the apocalypse both fun and colourful. Definitely worth a purchase now that co-op has been patched in.
- A surprisingly superb Japanese 'doujin' brawler.
- Catharsis defined.
- This cutesy action-RPG sucker punches players with tight combat and difficulty that could give Dark Souls a run for its money.
- Stylish portal-esque puzzling with some neat physics-based challenges.
- Balls-out carnage from a bunch of guys who made Painkiller and The Witcher. Contains the Extended Edition extras.
