    The Protagonist: EX-1, strange-looking sci-fi turn-based RPG thing, with customizable martial arts combat system for some reason. Beat the hell out of aliens:

    Doomtrooper, free-to-play digital card game based on the 90s Mutant Chronicles card game of the same name, Kickstarted in 2017. Apparently this is published by Heroic Signatures than Funcom. Does it have a separate publishing team, I wonder?

    EX-1 looks like Space Siege, you know - that failure of a project from some game developer named Chris Taylor, with cybernetic parts and consequences (people and their hostility toward cyberwankers with their cyberarms) but it was all in vain.

    Customizable martial arts? Like unarmed in Revenants and Sacred games?

    Developer's getting paid a bare minimum of $7k a month on Patreon (and probably closer to twice that), so making it free and having it show up on literally everybody's feed was probably a smart move.

    ...or at least until Epic buys him out.

    But that area shown in that animation is lifted almost directly from Doom 2016. As are the imps. As are the zombies. As is the chaingun. as is the armor model. :avatard:

    Whoa, vibes of Tenchu. I wonder if there's stealth. With non-dated gameplay this might be rad.

    This looks like mix between Clock Tower and Resident Evil in a japanese setting. I doubt that there will be any stealth.

    Chains of Fury, cool-looking retro-inspired FPS. I probably have believed if someone said this is a DLC for Void Bastards.

    Well gameplay from trailer seems underwhelming. Also being published by Gaming Factory S.A., yet another related company of the Polish shovelware lord PlayWay S.A.. does not give you confidence. (This could be another entry to their perpetual "coming soon" store pages, which make me think their actual purpose is just having store pages than actually releasing the games for some reason.)

    A game where you control a monstrous thingie as it rampages through a military research facility:



    There's a free demo of the first level available for people to munch on:



    I plowed through the demo in 20 minutes. This one's gonna be good. The controls are smooth, the gameplay is solid and moves at your pace, the graphics and sound are top-notch (for a retro pixel game) and the devs seem like good sports as you can reach their HQ in-game and feast on them! One to keep an eye on in 2020.

    Hmmm, almost half the games on my wishlist are on sale now even though the Halloween sale hasn't officially started and some of them aren't even horror themed(Kingmaker,Kenshi,Battle Brothers etc).
    That's weird

    I only have five games on my Wishlist on sale... three of them are trash-tier titles and the other two have pitiful discounts.

    Since I can't even get Steam to load properly right now, it looks like this won't be a Sale for me.

    Well, well.

    Shadow of the Tomb Rider is like -73% for the complete package. Which still amounts to roughly 30$ which I deem too high for a popamole.
    Still I'm tempted, as I have the other 2, I overall enjoyed them, and it irks me not to have them all.

    A thing I wanted to buy is Tabletop Simulator.
    I forgot the sale is horror themed, though, so sadly it's not discounted.
    I might just pick it anyway.
