I’m in the process of moving to a new house, just had to resuscitate my poor little shoe car from the brink of death, and was recently informed that the meticulously stone-hewn, full-sized medieval castle required of all RPS writers isn’t tax deductible. I cannot, in other words, afford anything. On that note, do you want to buy some dirt? Or how about this nice clump of air? Oh, look at this slightly used chewing gum. It’s fresh from your mouth as of three seconds ago. Oh, thank you. Thank you so much. You’ve done a good thing here today. You won’t regret it! I’ll get my life back on track. You’ll see! [Immediately slinks off to Old Man Newell’s back alley Steam Sale emporium to squander it all on indie games.]
Yes, Steam’s Indie Spring Sale is here, and it’ll torpedo-tempt even the most ironclad hulls of your resolve until March 29th. Top billing goes to IGF winners/finalists and PAX East showcase titles, but the sale spans just about every indie under the sun, dropping digits like an accountant with a death wish.
Standouts include Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams at 50 percent off, the Adam-approved Ultratron at the same pithy percentage, Trine and Trine 2 at 75 percent off, Half-Minute Hero at 66, and A Valley Without Wind 1 and 2 for less than the price of a mediocre coffee. Really, though, many of these games started at rather low prices, so casting off a few extra pieces of monetary cloth leaves them quite enticingly exposed.
Have a look around, if you’re feeling so inclined. Or, you know, maybe consider picking up a few for those less fortunate than your magnificently wealthy self.*
*Note: I’m not actually asking for games. Don’t worry. I have plenty.**
**But, I mean, if you are fabulously rich and have run out of orphans to turn into brilliant titans of industry/Batman… no, no. This is wrong.***
***Hey there, sexy.****
****I don’t even know what I’m doing anymore.
