Reventure is a buck and a little now on Steam, that's quite a unique indie game that you can sink many hours into. It's not often that you get a game where you do not try to find all the ways in which you can win it, but instead try to find all the ways in which you can lose it.

I do but I never saw a reason to have to buy it separately. Sometimes the soundtracks contains extra stuff like unused tracks and alternative versions and such, then it may be amusing to get it. But generally, you can find it on Youtube or Spotify.

I especially like playlists where people put the soundtrack of the game and then put a whole bunch of other songs which have the same style. Good stuff.

I rarely would listen soundtrack from game (if not playing it at the time), and in some cases I even changed soundtrack /music (MMO RPG I played while back).

Exception was Homeworld - Adagio for String that I find breathtaking...

On occasion I do listen to them, it's especially fun when listening to a soundtrack for a game and playing either ESO or Skyrim

But of course I want to fill out/complete as much as I can in my Steam Library.

Good luck getting them all!

BTW, with this progression, soon they will add more games per year than you already have....

Some games just have soundtracks that go above and beyond. Painkiller is one of my favorites, they don't make em like that anymore sadly.

I forgot to mention, there is now a halloween sale going in on the Epic store with a few good indies at there at a decent discount.

https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-U...halloween-sale

Of course I immediately ran to see Borderlands 3, but there are only discounts on the deluxe packages the little blighters.

It is rare to find interesting bundle now days on Fanatical, who seems to do more and more of scam 'mystery bundles', and this is nice for a change. Games in Retribution Bundle:

Wings of Vi (very positive reviews)

The Uncertain: Last Quiet Day (mostly positive reviews)

World's Dawn (very positive reviews)

Bunker Punks (very positive reviews)

Extinction (mixed reviews)

The Crown of Leaves (very positive reviews)

Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 (very positive reviews)

Unexplored (very positive reviews)


First 3 for a dollar, all 8 for 3.99.

hm. For the discounted price the games are definitely worth it. For their original price... not so much. Asterix & Obelix looks surprisingly good though, it's probably already worth it to get that game and then throw in two others just to complete the trio.

If anyone gets Bunker Punks and likes it, you will probably love Nightmare Reapers.

Not a lot of people on this side of big pond know about Asterix. Finally few years back at local B&N we found Asterix and Obelix. My kids love it. I will try it, and Wings of Vi over the weekend.

All the Asterix cartoons can be found on Youtube in any case. Asterix in Britain, the Twelve Tasks of Asterix, Asterix and Caesar, Asterix and the Vikings... all classics. The Twelve Tasks is my absolute favorite.

Nice bundle @ Fanatical, for those who don't have those games.

Renowned Bundle

I played Odallus: The Dark Call quite a lot. Nice little retro-looking game.
