Steam launched Indie Spring Sale yesterday, lasts until March 29th


Yesterday Steam reduced the prices of many indie games, which of course include those Independent Game Festival Winners and Finalists. Also it’s a pretty opportunistic time to highlight indie games, since PAX East started this morning and includes Indie Megabooth that showcases a plethora of independent game developers. In addition, several developers who received funding through Kickstarter will also be there, such as the Pixelscopic of Delver’s Drop and Sinister Design of Telepath Tactics. You may now also purchase games from Steam’s Early Access Program that allows you test out alpha builds. Gnomoria, Under the Ocean, and StarForge are a few that are available now to try out.

You can check the full listings of indie games here. Below are the IGF Finalists and Winners and PAX East Games that are on sale among notable other indie games.

Steam discounts S: S&S EP with Game of Thrones bundle in the first September midweek madness


Steam for the first midweek madness of September has discounted an amazing indie game, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery along with Cyanide Studios’ Game of Thrones Bundle. Game of Thrones Bundle is available at $23.80 (66% off). The bundle includes A Game of Thrones – Genesis, the 2011 strategy game release, and Game of Thrones, the 2012 RPG game release. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP reduced by 50% off and purchasable for just $3.99 that is an absolute steal since the Steam purchase also comes with the wonderful Jim Guthrie soundtrack. Tomorrow the sale ends at 7pm EST.

Here’s a mini description taken from one of my former posts:

I actually have S:S&S EP on both my PC and my iPad. Words cannot describe how amazing S:S&S EP is. The pixel-art is absolutely lovely as Jim Guthrie’s wonderful musical plays in the background of your adventure as this warrior girl who tries to understand the mysterious Megatome. The point and click adventure game is simplistic in that you don’t have to worry about your deaths or your inventory for that matter. It is a casual-style game that allows you to focus on the taking in the entire game through the amazing visuals and wonderfully humorous dialogue. Also Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP will be available in Japan on June 21st and a new remix soundtrack created by many famous Japanese composers will be available to purchase on the same day for $5. So if the game and its soundtrack isn’t enough, you have an amazing reworked soundtrack of Jim Guthrie’s innovative music on its way.

The Darkness II 75% off on Steam

Steam discounts British indie game bundle and The Walking Dead; The Walking Dead: Episode 3 – Long Road Ahead available tomorrow


This midweek madness sale is pretty awesome. Steam has discounted Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead to 40% off, making it a wonderful $14.99 for all five episodes. This is undoubtedly due to the upcoming release of Episode 3 – Long Road Ahead, which has released today for PlayStation Network. However, other gamers will have to wait one more day for its release to Xbox Live Arcade, PC, and Mac. In addition, tomorrow Episode 2 – Starved For Help will release on iOS. You can pick up the bundle of the game that includes all episodes upon release for just $14.99 as well from the iTunes App Store. If you wish to purchase it individually, then the episode will cost $4.99. I thoroughly have enjoyed the first two episodes and highly recommend the game to anyone who’s interested in it. Picking it up for just $14.99 is a great deal.

Also there’s the British Indie Game Bundle that features six games: Defcon, Eufloria, Frozen Synapse, Gratuitous Space Battles, Revenge of the Titans, and Ben There, Dan That! and Time Gentlemen, Please! Special Edition Double Pack. The bundle is available for just $9.99 (75% off).
