There's some pretty big sales going on right now, here's a look

Posted by , | Views: 9,463

Steam, Fanatical and others all have some big sales on right now so here's a little look over what to expect from them all.

First up, we have the Steam Lunar New Year Sale which is an interesting one. Valve are actually offering £5/$5 off your first purchase of at least £30/$30 and Valve themselves are funding that extra discount, so developers don't get even less money. Interesting way to do it! It doesn't need to be a single game, as long as your cart hits at least that amount.

Additionally, you can grab some tokens here to get some extra discounts and you get more tokens to get more prizes after buying more stuff. Valve is again, funding these extra discounts themselves.

Of course, there's too many games for sale for me to list even a fraction of them! You can find all Linux games on sale at this link. Their sale ends February 11th.

That's not all from Valve though, on February 8th at 10 AM Pacific/6PM UTC the winners of the Steam Awards will be announced and the broadcast will be on Steam.tv which is a first.

On top of that, Fanatical also just announced their own Lunar New Year Sale with tons of games discounted, they're even offering an additional 8% off if you use the discount code "LUNAR8".

While you're here, just a reminder that Humble Store also has plenty of bundles going on like the Caffeine bundle which includes games like This War of Mine, Tyranny, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun and so on.

Humble also have book bundles you might fancy, including "Break into the Game Industry" and "Programming Cookbooks".

GOG fans don't need to miss out either, as they have their own Weekly Sale with some great Linux games cheaper too.

After the first half of the posting I wanted to talk with him how this works out and all. After the ending, not anymore.

I hope things get easier when the kids are older and are able to have fun on their own for more than some minutes.

Back to the topic of games on sale...

I noticed that Elemental War is on sale this week on Steam... I grabbed it during the Winter Sale a month ago... I think I found a nice hidden gem with it.

Its a cool Tower Defense game, apparently inspired by some Warcraft III mod. Despite having it for only a month, I have actually played it for over 35 hours as of yesterday. I even spent the time to review it.

Its still in early access and getting balancing updates from the devs as well as multiplayer support. Its a small indie dev, and sadly not a huge player count yet... But they do have alliances; and with all the Tower Defense players here we can make a Linux Alliance and dominate the standings.

The game is stable... but they do need to do more performance tuning. It definitely gets my fans running on high while playing. But overall, I do recommend the game...
