pets you to fluffyness again
Here have a picture of my dog I hope it makes you feel a bit better:
Aw… Doggo is so cute. Definitely a smile worthy sight. ^^
IF you were planning on pre-ordering Cyberpunk 2077 anyway although I would never recommend it, despite my great regard for CDPR. They now have a collection package at a pretty decent price for their full catalogue of games on gog up for “only” 84€, it is quite a lot of game for the money.
Slightly cheaper than Steam, if you pay in euro, couldn’t say otherwise.
Thanks Fraggles. It’s the same price in USD, but I’m still debating whether I want Steam connectivity and achievements over being DRM free.
GOG has achievements too, so at least you won’t be missing out on that. Many games with Steam achievements lack GOG ones, but CDPR puts achievements in their games on GOG too.
$2.99. get it meow!!!
purrs But why…myrr?
It’s actually in this bundle right now:
Not too many things in there for me, so I am passing on the bundle…
So…I got it…'cause Enki and Sanctus Mortem. Sanctus just had a an update in Dec. Kisareth Studios closed in March 2020.
"It is with a heavy heart that this announcement must be made. Due to continuing financial losses and closure of Kisareth Studios the entire catalog of Kisareth Studios’ games will be retired from the Steam store on March 6th, 2020.
It’s strongly encouraged that for anyone who has wishlisted any of these games to make their purchases sooner rather than later. This catalog will also be pulled from other digital storefronts such as GMG. Those who currently own one or multiple of these games (and those who will purchase them before March 6th) will retain access to these games even after their retirement if you should need to re-install them and so on.
Heartfelt thanks goes out to all supporters and fans of these games. It’s been quite an experience these past years."
I can’t figure out why it is so often the case that when a small indie studio goes out of business they stop selling their games, or even worse some times try to scrub them out of existence entirely.
If you no longer have the desire or somehow ability to sell your product then at least allow it to slip into abandonware and allow it to be given away for free or something.
Two common reasons:
I think you hit it on the head, removing means not needing to any kind of maintenance work. So no need to patch up for newer OS or improving optimizations, etc. Which of course makes sense if a studio is shut down and the team scattered, they may not be able to go back and do fix-ups of things that are outstanding.
I guess it’s just simpler to leave the game for free if you’re both the developer and the publisher as happened with these games: Alpha Polaris : A Horror Adventure Game and NaissanceE.
Also sometimes you get games like Shrouded in Sanity(currently on sale btw) where the dev just went “you know what, here’s the main game for free”.
Ara Fell is getting an Enhanced Edition due to an engine upgrade for their upcoming game. They decided to port the game to this new engine and added a bunch of new features and are re-releasing it.
If you own Ara Fell previously, you’ll get a free upgrade. The release is set to March 26th and the price will increase to $15, so if you want now, you can grab for $10 and get the upgrade later for free as well. There has been discounts before for the game, but now with the re-release we don’t know for sure when it’s going to get discounts again.
Here’s a list of the new features
… i own this? how do i own this ?
surely this must have been bundled at some point?, or my “buy games and forget all about 'em” is starting to reach troublesome heights lol
I know I got mine from a bundle some time ago.
Agmented Steam shows it’s been in a bundle 8 times, so yea
Yay! I hast it and installed and been tired, busy or distracted with other things to play it, eheh.
