    Hitman World of Assassination for $27 on Steam, in addition to a bunch of other games on weeklong sale:

    World of Assassination has been my recent obsession, the murder simulation puzzle box style of game is super addicting and very rewarding to learn. The kills are really creative, and it's endlessly replayable to score chase, or play new contracts, or the new(not anymore but still) Freelancer mode. For less than $30 I think it's a total steal, honestly.

      Every time I go to buy this game I notice there are a bunch of versions all claiming to be "the trilogy" and I get overwhelmed. I'm not sure what the $15 version includes, but do you know if the $30 version includes all three games?

        the $30 version has all 3 games, but it's missing some missions and some cosmetics. It's also missing 2 maps, New York and Haven. I like New York as a Map, but Haven isn't too great imo.

      Here’s a list of games that are only available on GOG.

      I used to buy my games through GOG because I like their DRM-free stance and also like to support the underdog, but Steam won me back with superior Linux support. I will still buy GOG games that Steam doesn’t have though, so I always browse this during sales to see what’s on offer.

        I'm not an expert on the technical details and you may already be aware, but the Heroic Launcher has ever-improving support for GOG and I've had pretty good experiences with Proton there. Like with Steam, you can install custom versions of Wine/Proton GE, and most of the time It Just WorksTM.

        Heroic also has a "add games to Steam by default" feature, but that gives me headaches about a quarter of the time.

    Back 4 Blood is 90% off on Steam, including the Deluxe and Ultimate editions. Deluxe has all the content DLC, while Ultimate has some extra cosmetics. Deluxe is the better deal unless you’re really wanting the “complete” game (there’s no way to get those extra cosmetics outside of the Ultimate edition).

    This game gets a bit of a bad rap, and that’s fair, but my friends and I also had fun with it. Would I recommend it at full price? Nope. Would I recommend it at 90% off? If you’ve got friends to play it with, sure!

    Going in with $60 expectations is bound to disappoint, but going in with $6 expectations makes it a lot easier to enjoy.

    I actually played this one! I really like it a lot, it's a very chill tile puzzle game. It's very cute and relaxing, and the narrator has a very pleasant tone.

        no problem! if you want any more suggestions, I met the writer of "Be Like a Crow" at PAX East this year, and I really enjoyed his energy and passion for RPG's. I recommend his stuff too! He has a couple of solo RPG's that are really well written:
        https://criticalkit.us/collections/be-like-a-crow

        The other writer who's work I've read a bit was Hypnos, on itch.io as well! I think I talked to him a couple of times on Reddit and he seemed pretty cool too:

          THANK YOU for sharing! I wanted to buy a copy, but physical is sold out :( Will bookmark and check back regularly. I wish I could buy it now so I could get a PDF copy then be shipped a physical when it becomes available. I can't afford to buy a PDF version and then a physical copy though.

          Will grab one of Hypnos's games! I've bought a ton of solo rpg stuff over the past week or so, and I want to make a thread about it eventually.
