Cheap Game Deals of the Now

Spent the weekend voting and doing taxes. It turns out I’ve spent over 1000 EUR just for games and gaming-related hardware last year. That’s excluding downloadable stuff. It’s a lot but I thought it would be more, considering how I bought two consoles in that period. So with that newfound faith in my accounting skills, here are two hot tips on how to get a lot of games for very cheap this weekend:

First up, you REALLY should check out the Humbe Indie Bundle. You can get 6 very cool indie games for any price you like. You can even go as low as 1$. But paying a bit more is not such a bad thing in this case considering a portion of that money goes to charity. And if that doesn’t convince you, the Trailer certainly should. But hurry, there are only 2 days left!

The other tip may be not quite as cool but still a sweet deal. You can get Civilization IV, Colonization and all update packs for just 10$ on Steam right now. I am a big fan of the series and I enjoyed part 3 a lot. I heard that this one is supposed to be the definitive version of Civ so I thought it was at least worth a sneak peek.

So my Backlog received a huge boost today. Don’t you just wish the games industry would take a break for a year or two so we could all catch up with all the games? <:(

The Game Design Scrapbook is a second blog of group of three game designers from Germany. On our first blog, Game Design Reviews we describe some games we played and point out various interesting details. Unfortunately, we found out that we also need some place to collect quick and dirty ideas that pop into our minds. Hence, welcome to Game Design Scrapbook. You will encounter wild, random rantings. Many of then incoherent. Some of them maybe even in German. If you don't like it, you might enjoy Game Design Reviews more.
