Bargain Thread 2020

You missed a few:

  • A Short Hike
  • Wide Ocean, Big Jacket
  • Night in the Woods
  • Quadrilateral Cowboy
  • Overland
  • Fortune-499

Loot Rascals, 9 Til Void, and Signs of the Sojourner are in there too, and those were already on my wishlist…

This is vexing me, by the way. I mean, I don’t necessarily want ALL of these games in my library, but if I they aren’t added, how do I easily return to this list to peruse them and add them later? My itch.io library is already stuffed with random smatterings from previous big bundles (like one they did as a COVID fundraiser) so I think I sorta wish they’d just unleash the avalanche rather than hide them where I’ll forget about them!

That was bothering me as well. I couldn’t find anything other than the link in our purchase email.

My recommandation is Airships: Conquer the Skies, an incredible, incredible game where you build ships and there is a strategy map and the ships are destroyed bits by bits and there is physics but it’s all simple. It’s awesome.

Heavy Bullets is a procedurally generated FPS with lots of cool enemies and traps, too.
But play Airships.

Bought. But it’s annoying that the games aren’t listed in alphabetical order (since it’s scattered throughout 8 pages). Makes it a pain in the ass to go through your lists here and add those games to my library.

One of those games is Three Lesbians in a Barrow. Lol.

Once you open the game download page from your emailed purchase link the games will be in your library. That makes them easy to install and manage from the Itch.io app. It’s very, very basic - but so are the straight ZIP files Itch distributes its games with.

There’s going to be a couple hundred more thingies in that bundle soon, including Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass, Nuclear Throne, Octodad & Underhero.

It can also now be seen with the “My Purchases” link on itch.

I’m not sure if I want a Itch Io backlog. This is beginning to sound like the great backlog Apocalypse. The day when all hopes of defeating backlog were lost.

Where’d you get this info? Is there a list of what’s going to be added?

The following are on sale at Best Buy for Xbox One, $9.99 each:

  • Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

  • Forza Motorsport 7

  • State of Decay 2

I don’t think there’s a list, it’s in the developer area of itch.

If this works without a dev account you can ruin the surprises here:

Canada too! Forza 7 is already sold out online here.

All three of those games are great.

The Surge 2 any good? Also on clearance, for $24.99.

I mean, it’s a good cause and there’s maybe a hundred bucks’ worth of good stuff, but that bundle is also the biggest heap of junk I’ve ever seen.

For a laugh, I’m kinda looking at it from the other way around.

It includes classics such as:

That’s itch.io for you, man. It’s open to any creators who want to post their work there, all money goes directly to them (when it’s not a charity situation), and it includes tabletop RPGs and developer asset collections.

Yeah, the diversity of tastes and interests is pretty amazing.

I remember when it was first pointed out to me when I was a young lad that there’s an entire sub-genre of mystery books from the point of view of cats. It’s not my thing, but it kind of makes me happy it exists. Like VISIGOTHS vs MALL GOTHS.

Looks like they’re already getting close to their fundraising goal.

I don’t think there’s much there I’ll ever play, but it does come with Blades In The Dark tabletop RPG which I’ve heard good things about.

They blew way past their fundraising goal, so it was bumped by 500%. And now they’re getting close to that.
