Blog a Day 329of365: The one where Jen advertises something
I don’t normally act like some sort of press release on here but the Steam sale feels deserving of this at the moment. And when I say the sale, what I really mean is the Indie Story Pack which is at a ridiculously low price of £3.99.
I’ve played two of the titles featured in the pack, reviewed them too.
Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale is brilliant. It does get repetitive after a while but I still find myself returning to it regularly. It’s an RPG really, but instead of the usual tale, you run an item shop. You have to fill the place with stock and sell hard in order to pay off your debts. It’s all quite Harvest Moonish really, another of my favourites, but with dungeon crawling elements. It’s normally £12.99 on its own and I still reckon it’s worth that so £4 for it plus 4 other games is amazing value.
And Yet It Moves is the other title I’ve reviewed. I played it on the Wii but I’m sure it’s just as good on the PC. It’s a physics-based platform puzzler. There’s a lot of them but this one is good. It looks lovely too. It was worth £7 on the Wii, so again it’s worth it for £4 with 4 other games.
Besides that, there’s Gish which seems to have had some excellent reviews, Jolly Rover – a 2D point and click adventure with a Metacritic score of 72 which must count for something, and Puzzle Agent which is made by Telltale so it MUST be good, right?
Anyway, buy it for the above two, I can guarantee they’re brilliant. The other three are just pleasant bonuses.
