Maize for 5 Euros on Gog:
Not exactly on topic, but the Steam controller is on sale for ~15 (5.50 + 9 shipping).
looks like I was just too late to grab the last of their stock… it was in my shopping cart but then:
ah well… I still have a mouse + keyboard
[edit: when I wanted to close Steam after a few hours, I saw I could order it! And then while filling out payment info, it couldn’t process as it was just out of stock again. But I tried a few times and finally it got through - probably someone else removing it from their cart - sorry for that! Looking forward to using it to play some mouse-driven games. Or sell it for a 10-fold on ebay ]
Yesterday I couldn’t manage to pay for it through Steam itself. It timed out with some kind of error, but it worked in Firefox. It never said out of stock though.
Btw, they say they ship from the Netherlands so € 9 seems awful steep. >_> I figured that whatever, I would have seriously considered buying it even if it was € 25 total but it just feels a bit weird.
Gog offers several adventure games during his Black Friday sale - including “Yesterday” (new on Gog, btw), “Yestarday Orginis”, “The Next Big Thing” and “Maize”:
There are quite few sold for dirt cheap. I bought The Last Express (it’s a crime I haven’t played it) and the last one with Tex Murphy, which is fairly new. Realistically, I expect to play it when it will be as old as The Last Express is now, and after it has been given for free 11 times.
I’ve started Ghetto Conspiracy and it’s good… the humour and the puzzles are definitely there… the graphics too. The puzzles have just the right difficulty, not too easy… I’m curious to see where it’s going.
cognition at 80% off on GOG:
all four episodes are included.
Oh and also it’s on sale (50%):
This Humble Bundle is on sale for about 5 remaining days and the proceeds are donated to help Australia.
Minimum price is $25 and it includes some adventure games. Like Euro Truck Simulator 2. No really, there are quite some nice adventure games included!
Related to this there is also another adventure game “on sale” (auctioned) (it’s a good game):
And a book about games:
And here’s another type of game:
https://www.gog.com/game/whispers_of_a_machine is one sale again.
There are also a lot of great adventure games in the current week sale:
I know my final impression of Shardlight sounds less than favorable, but for the price there’s little to complain. Primordia is cheaper still, and actually the better game. It even has a native Linux version!
Another GOG midweek sale with a lot of adventure games:
Life Is Strange 2 (DONTNOD - Square Enix)
The complete season on sale 60% discount.
One of the best narrative-games ever!
I enjoy the first one better though, even if it’s definitely enjoyable.
On the contrary, I preferred this one.
Although the first one was innovative, it lacked too much on the controls.
I have to play the prequel (the life of Max and Chloe before the events)
You mean they didn’t make the rewinding work as well on a non-controller? I played it with an Xbox One controller and the controls were excellent.
Before the Storm has some interesting concepts and it’s fairly well done. I’d say it’s worth a look.
That was fine. I mean when you had to hold down left mouse button, then move the mouse, then release the button to choose an action.
It looked like the MI3 interface…
