    Seems to be more of a "LOOK AT YOUR BACKLOG YOU FUCKING RETARD!" event.

    That said, there are various games that are Free to Play/Try during the Weekend without having to buy them and also have discounts additional to that, like:






    Also Assetto Corsa and Left4Dead 2.

    I heard PC gamers like to manage things.

    Hammerting is a vertical dwarven mining colony sim with RPG elements.

    Manage a clan of colorful dwarves, establish an epic mining operation, craft legendary swords and delve deep for greater glory, riches... and danger.

    With a war raging on the surface, the dwarves pledge to delve deep and, as the master craftspeople they are, produce and supply whatever is needed. From humble beginnings, you start with a few, hurried dwarves who need to set up operations. Ultimately, your small clan of dwarves will be known throughout the Upper Realms for their skill, and the base will span kilometers.

    Crafting for Victory
    Allies on the surface have all manner of requests. Dwarves may find themselves asked to craft oodles of silver swords against an oncoming vampire army. For an elf princess’s coronation, they’ll wish for nothing less than a Legendary Diamond-Encrusted Gold Crown of Divine Ruling +3.
    • With the overworld in need, every successful delivery takes you one step closer to triumphing against evil.
    • As your dwarves increase in skill and your base expands, build conveyor belts and elevators to free them of manual labor.
    Colorful Personalities
    Does Åglöf’s fancy ancestry clash with Vargskreva’s humble upbringing? Is your explorer afraid of the dark? Has your master crafter reached her Ballmer Peak? Exploit your dwarves’ strengths as well as their weaknesses to succeed.

    • Each dwarf is richly and uniquely defined through it’s stats, dwarven ancestry, traits, abilities, equipment, movement set, and more.
    • A dwarf may go out of her way to achieve her goals - and they may not always align with the player’s.
    • Events in a dwarf’s life can give them new abilities and traits.
    Skilled Craftspeople
    Anyone can craft an iron sword; but only dwarves can haggle a Crystal Cave Dragon to sell her fiery plasma breath, pump it up to a Andthril Forge of Doom and use it to craft an... Iron Sword +2.

    • With every strike of the hammer on the anvil, a skilled dwarf has a chance to crit, making the result all that much better.
    • The chain for completing a single great item is long. First, find and mine some gold ore. Carry it home. Smelt it into ingots. Take the ingots and make a crown. Take the crown to the jeweler and insert perfectly cut rubies, imbuing it with a glow that radiates happiness to everyone around. Then take it to the runesmith and inscribe it with a powerful dwarven rune.
    Elegant Home
    Technically, one could design doors and rooms roughly sized after the person using them, but that is not the dwarven way. A leeway margin of at least 5.25 meters is recommended in the Dwarven Architecture Handbook, but of course, that was written by a half-dwarf, half-environmentalist. Real dwarves need at least 11 meters.
    • The dwarves like to give everything they do an extra touch. Hanging banners around the base, polishing their walkways, and replacing ladders with grandiose elevators are all things that make the dwarves happy.
    Living Cave
    Dwarven Beer Recipe: Farm wheat, preferably in a dry, but not barren biome. Grind it, put it in a lake, and boil for two weeks. Hunt down and add three Malty Slimes, stir. Boil for another week. Chill. Add two liters of yeast from a Sweaty Swamp Ogre (find them by following the stench of Musty Mangrove Moss), cover and ferment.

    • Biomes ranging from sandy deserts to nordic forests and blistering lava caves. Of course each biome is visually unique and contains its own set of flora, fauna, hazards, special locations, and events.
    • Plants can be farmed, or harvested in the wild.
    • Indigenous creatures can be attacked, used to your advantage, or simply avoided.
    Verticality
    Dwarves are big on elevators, but not so much on free falling. It follows that they’d have their own takes on hellevators. For example, members of Clan Steelbrow prefer a traditional shaft dug straight down, straddled by a crane with a 300 meter rope, and nothing but a barrel to stand in. Needless to say, the barrel’s built-in bar is stocked with ale.
    • Only in the deepest depths will you find the most powerful materials, the warmest magma, the rarest treasures, and the most dangerous conditions.
    • Figuring out the fastest and safest route down - and up again - is a chief concern, but you’ll have plenty of unique dwarven mechanisms to help you do so.
    • Features liquid and physics mechanics for pumping lava to your hearths, brewing beer, tossing torches down shafts to light up the unknown, and more.
    Modding
    Don’t like the game? No worries, just buy it anyways and mod it to your heart’s content!
    • Use the bundled SDK to create pre-packaged mods.
    • Add or replace any of the game’s assets
    • Not just limited to “data” assets such as textures, you can also script and write new full blown systems in native C++.
    End note
    Please wishlist the game, come join us on Discord and follow us on Twitter!

    There are whispers of something ancient stirring beneath the moss and stone. The creatures of the forest stay close to their groves and tread lightly on their trails... Because they know those paths converge at the heart of the forest, and fear what has awoken there.

    Explore the deep forests in this folklore fantasy tale that pushes the boundaries of strategy games:
    • Settle villages and expand your kingdom in an open world, teeming with magical creatures and strange civilizations.
    • Grow your economy by specializing each village to best use nearby resources.
    • Complete quests to advance your story and gain standing with the creatures of the forest.
    • Focus your production to equip your army with powerful weapons and abilities.
    From the author
    Trollskog is developed independently, taking into account the feedback from players while also staying true to my vision of what the strategy genre can be. I'm happy to present Trollskog to you now, and look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas as the game continues to grow.

    The Orc King has finally decided that you are ready to start your own colony. You are given a single Builder and a goblin plus some crowns and stones to get you started. There is also a working silver mine so that you can get your economy up and running.

    It is up to you to dig deep underground and build rooms to attract new orcs. Don't forget to provide your orcs with food, a place to eat and beds for them to sleep in or they will be angry and just leave the colony.

    You will also need to plan where to mine ores for crowns (silver, gold, emerald) or for weapons and armor (copper, iron, mithril).

    You can also attract Orc Champions to raid nearby human or even orc settlements. It is better to send your champions with the best armor and weapons you have which will greatly increase the chance of success.

    Remember do not raid too fast and too far or the Human King or even the Orc King will send their own soldiers to your colony!

    Key Features:
    • 15 Rooms you can build and upgrade for more efficiency
    • Build Elevators to connect the different levels of your colony
    • Form raiding parties that consists of Orc Champions to send to raid nearby human or orc settlements
    • Orcs will get hungry and sleepy and will search for the nearest bedroom or dining room



    And this is re-release of 2002 game.

    I'll buy that too I s'pose. Edit: No I won't, I have it on GOG. I think it was a freebie at one point.

    Now is also that often occuring time where an indie game everyone cums over that I'm theoretically interested in but know I'll likely never actually play is on sale, this time "Inside."

    Has this already been announced and I missed it? Looks like some kind of Vampire the Masquerade Visual Novel?
