Strap yourself in for another deluge of deals and check out some of our favorite games at a wallet friendly price. Yep, it’s another entry in our line of premium itch.io Selects bundles. This time we’ve got death, more death, city planning, gender, horror, and even more death. Yeah, you’re in for a wild ride. Here's what you get:
A Mortician’s Tale
Laundry Bear’s tale of death-positivity is a beautiful look at one of the few things we all share. Learn what it takes to run a mortuary and take a peek at what happens when our stories end. We’ve written about how much we love this game before, but if you’ve never seen Mortician’s Tale, know that it’s a unique, moving experience that explores a side of death we rarely see not only in games, but any art form.
Get your city planning muscles warmed up because they’re going to get used a lot in Freeways. Take on a series of increasingly ridiculous transit challenges by drawing increasingly goofy roads. Freeways is the latest deceptively brilliant game from Captain Games, the folks who brought you Desert Golfing and Enviro-Bear 2000. There aren’t many developers who are as consistently and wild and fun as Captain Games and Freeways is as good as it gets.
What could be scarier than being possessed in the 80s? Faith is one of the scariest games I’ve played and does it all with a ZX Spectrum aesthetic. But don’t be tricked into thinking that Faith is a one-note monster explosion, there’s a beating heart in the middle of it all. Check out the game IGN described as “One of the Best Horror Games of 2017.”
Fans of the blog will know recognize Genderwrecked as the game we said was “stuffed to the seams with heart and charm” and as one of the most interesting meditations on gender around. Fall in love with a world that allows you to hang out with a robot dad and make fun of a tree. Genderwrecked is a game that shows off how great games can be when they’re made by artists being authentic to themselves.
Rusty Lake Paradise
The Rusty Lake series has returned with its largest entry yet. Rusty Lake Paradise takes our favorite escape room franchise and opens it up to an entire island suffering under the biblical plagues. Guide a family through this hardship and learn about the Rusty Lake universe along the way. If you’re interested in escape games, atmosphere, or beautiful art, Rusty Lake Paradise is going to be right up your alley.
Speed Dating for Ghosts
Let’s get spooky with the last game in our bundle: Speed Dating for Ghosts. Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a little romance. Dive into the backstories of the recently deceased and fall in love along the way. Speed Dating for Ghosts is a fun and heartwarming look at love and death from a former Bioware employee and an indie rapper. Check it out now.
