Once again the steam sale is upon us meaning that Your bank account is going to be taking a beating while your steam library grows at an alarming rate. Or is that just me?
So I thought I would do a few of my personal favourite things I’ve seen in the steam sale so far, and also mention some others that are at a very large reduction.
To start the ball rolling we have Civilization, I personally a huge fan of this game series and did pre order the most recent one. And my 300-400 hours combined on both of these games will say a lot. I feel they are some of the best strategy games on the market and for £5 the older one is still very much worth it with the difference between them being somewhat aesthetical on the surface!
My summer car is a very nice game, although it’s still in development you could sink so many hours into it. And because of how much depth it goes into when building the initial car I found it so immersive and fun. Although I wouldn’t say this is a game for serious player it’s more for fun and a bit of a laugh. And although it’s only a 20% saving it’s still under £10 for a game I could very confidently say will take hours and hours from you
The next game on my list is SimAirport, this game is a very simple but addictive simulation game in which you are tasked with creating, operating and managing an airport. Again this game is still in development and as a result is constantly improving. Again the saving is only 20% but when the game is only £15.19 and not £18.99 I fell its a nice little saving for a game that has so much potential when it is finally completed.
The forest is the name game in question and having seen it for years and always putting off getting it I feel that was a huge mistake. It’s a survival horror game with a rich environment and lovely crafting system and feel to the game. It has a similar feel to game like 7 days to die but has more of a story and the buildings look so beautiful. And for £7.36 33% might not seem like a lot but it will be worth every penny I promise .
And last on my list is Hacknet, this game has tempted me in so many time due to my cyber security back ground. But I have always been hesitant to purchase it because I could see it being fun for the first half an hour and then growing old very quickly. But how wrong I was. It’s basically a terminal that lets you access other machines on the networks and simulates hacking. Although the game play is time commands into a conle it’s surprising fun and engaging. And for the sake of £2.50 it’s well worth it even if you only play it for a couple of hours.
