Steam has a special Finland Anniversary Sale of games made by Finnish developers

Posted by , | Views: 4,889

Today is a bit of a special day for those of us living in Finland, for it is our independence day. And to make just that bit more special is the fact that today marks the 100th anniversary of independent Finland, and it seems that Valve wanted to join in on the celebrations in the form of a game sale.

On the 6th of December in 1917 the Parliament of Finland declared the nation's independence from Russia, which it had been an autonomous grand duchy of since 1809. While the path towards independence was not a particularly easy one, with a civil war happening in the following year and two major struggles to keep said independence just two decades later, I think it’s fair to say we came out alright. And we even have some video games to show that!

To celebrate the 100th anniversary, Valve has decided to host a special video game sale consisting of games made by Finnish developers. While quite a few of the these games are Windows-only, there are still some interesting picks for those of us using an operating system kernel made in Finland. Below are some particular highlights:

There’s a famous four-word phrase among Finns which we tend to use whenever our little nation gets international recognition. So, let us end this article with the following wise words:

Suomi mainittu, torilla tavataan.

qptain NemoIf you're into story-driven stuff, The Detail is a very neat solid crime thriller.
I already had a look at it today but was held back from the negative reviews saying it lacks in choices making a difference.

To each their own, but playing through the first episode didn't make me want to play through the rest.

qptain NemoUhhh, I mean I remember enjoying the first episode on its own considerably, I decided to buy and play the rest after all, but, as I'm sure you understand, an episode of a longer story can only be so self-contained. It felt fairly satisfying but at the same time it also ends on a kind of a cliffhanger.

Ah! I didn'T see the other episodes are already released. So it's all fine: If it's fun, I can get the rest.
