Starting today we’ll have four weeks of rotating discounts on great digital games, across PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. This week kicks off with remastered cult classic Grim Fandango, and Ubisoft’s artful RPG, Child of Light along others. I should also add that everything has a PS Plus discount attached, stretching your coin even further.
You’ll only have one week to grab these discounts before we swap in a fresh load, so delaying is not in your best interest.
If you're currently in need of Playstation credit be sure to check out our PlayStation + and PSN Gift Cards cheap deals guide for the best current pricing on PS+ subscriptions and PSN store credit.
93p is a great price for this little beauty. Co-op platforming using three diverse characters is the focus of the game, which sees you using a wizard to levitate objects, a knight to do the killing and a thief to use a grappling hook to swing around like a medieval Spider-man. Swapping between the characters when playing on your own is just as much fun as playing online. The game isn't held back by it's 2D setting as the graphics are richly detailed, making this one of the best-looking platformers out there.

Steam bring us their latest Midweek Madness deal, and it not only has some good games but it is at a ridiculous price point. Here we have all three of developer Frozenbyte’s releases, Trine, Shadowgrounds, and Shadowgrounds Survivor, all of which can be yours for £3.30. That’s a saving of almost £20 in comparison to rounding up the cheapest alternatives from other retailers, so if you missed out on their Humble Indie Bundle a while back this is most definitely the best chance to get them on the cheap. If you’re interested in this bundle at this price you’ve got until midnight on Friday to snap it up. Thanks to MED5 @ HUKD!
Many of you will have doubtlessly taken advantage of the recent Humble Indie Bundle III that included Frozenbyte's excellent fantasy platform puzzler along with some other excellent indie games, but if you didn't, here's a chance to get it at a bargain price level. The robust physics engine coupled with the genuinely creative puzzle solving makes Trine a refreshing and rewarding take on the platforming genre - thanks to each of its three heroes possessing distinct abilities.
For example, the thief would use a grappling hook to swing over a pit whereas the wizard could create a series of floating platforms or levitate rocks to form a bridge. The knight would probably just chuck a boulder or three into the bottom before strolling off to find some skeletons to brutalise. The three characters can be switched between at any time, allowing players to adjust their tactics on the fly (as well as adding some impressive replay value).
We love the Humble Bundles here at Dealspwn because they're a cracking way to not only play some seriously awesome indie games at a bargain price, but also because you can choose exactly where you want you money to go. Supporting indie devs as well as games charities, we've got a lot of love for Jeff Rosen and co.
And now it's time for round three. Teaming up with Frozenbyte, this Bundle includes copies of Trine, Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor (which will all run on PC, Mac and Linux), complete with soundtracks for each game. Also thrown in there is an exclusive prototype version of Jack Claw and a pre-order for upcoming cutesy platform-puzzler Splot. What are you waiting for?!
Update. Since passing 100k sales, Frozenbyte have announced they will be uploading 3 tracks from the soundtrack to the upcoming Trine 2 for Bundle buyers.
We love Jeff Rosen and the guys behind Humble Bundle. The Humble Indie Bundles have been absolutely excellent, the payment method allow buyers to pay what they want and choose where the money goes, benefiting indie devs and charities.
For round 3, Humble Bundle has teamed up with Frostbyte to bring us The Humble Frozenbyte Bundle. Featuring the critically acclaimed Trine, as well as Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor, players can also get their hands on two other Frozenbyte games: Jack Claw and the as-yet-unreleased title, Splot.
The Bundle will be going live later at 17:30 today, and you'll be able to snap it up here when the time comes. We'll stick up a deal post when it erupts onto the net.[Kotaku]
Even rabid critics of Valve's ubiquitous digital distribution platform have to admit that it provides exceptional deals from time to time. This week, Steam has lowered the price of Trine, the critically acclaimed fantasy game, to £4.25. This will save you nearly £13!
At first glance, Trine looks like a fantasy action RPG. Robed wizards, heroic knights, hooded rogues and all manner of pseudo-medieval beasties are all proudly displayed in the screenshots and trailers; but don't be fooled. It's actually a smart little physics-based platformer that challenges the player to harness the power of three different heroes in order to make their way through a selection of pits, traps and enemies.
Trine may have great graphics and responsive controls, but its main attraction is that there are many different ways of approaching each particular puzzle. Each of the three heroes have distinct abilities: for example, the thief would use a grappling hook to swing over a pit whereas the wizard could create a series of floating platforms or levitate rocks to form a bridge. The knight would probably just chuck a boulder or three into the bottom before strolling off to find some skeletons to brutalise. The three characters can be switched between at any time, allowing players to adjust their tactics on the fly (as well as adding some impressive replay value).
The robust physics engine coupled with the genuinely creative puzzle solving makes Trine a refreshing and rewarding take on the platforming genre- and at this price even skeptics should probably check out the demo before the Midweek Madness deal expires!
