Update: In a tweet, Devolver Digital confirmed that this Steam sale is being held in conjunction with charitable speedrunning organization Games Done Quick. Devolver says they'll donate 10 percent of the sale's revenue to GDQ.
Publisher Devolver Digital is running a quick Steam sale to ring in the new year. A handful of good indies are on sale through Monday, January 15, including gratuitous violence simulator Hotline Miami and contemplative puzzler The Talos Principle. Here's the full list:
You'll also find some good discounts in GOG's New Year's Resolution sale, which started earlier today and runs through January 15. The first day's 'resolutions' (read: recommendations) are mostly meaty RPGs like Divinity: Original Sin 2 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and there's a good indie presence thanks to other games like Torchlight and Legend of Grimrock.
The Humble Bundle fall sale is in full swing, and in addition to free copies of Brutal Legend, it's filled with big discounts on great indie games. The entire sale is a goldmine, but publisher Devolver Digital's library is especially rich.
Note that some games are on sale through Tuesday, November 28, but others are only discounted until this Friday, November 24. Here are some highlights for the shorter sale which ends this Friday:
While these games are on sale through Tuesday, November 28:
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time.>
What was the logical next step for the developers of dual machine gun toting, beheaded bomber slaying Serious Sam? A thoughtful, philosophical puzzler in the vein of Portal, of course.
In The Talos Principle [official site] you play as a robot, guided through the game by a disembodied voice calling itself Elohim. Imagine the Stanley Parable narrator but with more pompous severity and you ll have a good idea what you re in for. (more…)
Existential puzzle game The Talos Principle now has a VR edition, which you can slap on your face now. It contains the core game, rebuilt for VR, and also the four-part Road to Gehenna expansion.
In The Talos Principle, you solve puzzles with lasers and blocks amid ancient Greek and Egyptian ruins and medieval castles while an omnipresent creator chats in your ear. Chris Thurston had plenty of good things to say about the original in his review.
“The forgivingly low bar set by its initial puzzles belies the complexity of what follows, and the majority of chambers are flat-out excellent: a feat made more impressive by the sheer number of the things. You're looking at a running time of ten to fifteen hours to do absolutely everything, assuming that you don't smack up against the ceiling of your own acuity. The difficulty curve is expertly set. Once you've got your head around how a new tool works, many puzzles can be cracked with less than a minute's consideration.”
This new version has been build from the ground up for VR and comes with roomscale support, advanced VR controls, and different movement presets. So as well as being able to teleport in three different ways, the game supports full locomotion for those who don’t anticipate getting nauseous.
If you own the original, The Talos Principle VR is 25% off on Steam, and for everyone else, it’s £29.99/$39.99. It's available for both Oculus Rift and Vive.
