Devolver Digital Steam Sale Is Pretty Great

I realise sales are now everywhere, all the time, always, every day, 24/7, 100% saletime, live life in the sale lane, welcome to Salecity, hit the salezone, everything must go, ground floor: perfumery, stationary, and leather goods, wigs and haberdashery, kitchenware and food – going up – but some individual sales are still worth pointing out. For example, ace publishers Devolver Digital currently have a biggun on Steam.

Yes, they recently had a Humble Bundle and are always in the big Steam sales but… they’ve got Downwell for 99p, man. Both Hotlines Miami together are less than £4. Shadow Warrior is £3. The Talos Principle is £8. Titan Souls is £3. I’m sure many have been cheaper at times, but these are all good prices.

The full list of games on sale is this-a-way. That’s quite a big list, isn’t it. A lot to work through. A bit overwhelming. Tough to start on.

In which case, for reference, here are Wot I Thinks, impressions, and chats we’ve had about… shooty downwards-platformer Downwell, first-person puzzler The Talos Principle and its DLC, run ‘n’ gunning action movie homage ’em up Broforce, roguelikelike top-down shooter Enter the Gungeon, die-restart-die-restart-die-restart-MURDER EVERYONE top-down shooter Hotline Miami and its sequel, hugtastic adventure game Dropsy, neighbourhood-building sim Block’hood, revived supernatural FPS Shadow Warrior, boss-battling action/adventure Titan Souls, acrobatic shmup Luftrausers, side-on shooter Not A Hero, decision-making survival game Gods Will Be Watching, side-on stealth murderer Ronin, and bird-fancying dating sim Hatoful Boyfriend.

Ah. That’s still a huge load, isn’t it. In which case, I will say that Downwell is a whole load of fun for a quid. I’m sure some of your fellow fine readers have other games they’d fiercely argue are The One For You too.
