Posted by | PC, Reviews | No Comments

Available On: PC (Steam)

Fort Triumph combines two of my favorite flavors of games: the strategic map exploration of Heroes of Might and Magic, and the tactical combat of XCOM. It’s an ambitious cross-pollination of genres for a tiny indie game that succeeds more than it stumbles, but lack of content and variety hold it back from greatness.

Nintendo eShop Sale: Up to 40% off Best-Selling Indie Games

Posted by | News, Switch | No Comments

What’s the perfect follow-up to unwrapping a shiny new console for the holidays? A digital game sale! The Nintendo eShop is hosting an indie game sale on the best-selling indie games of 2019. From now through December 28, save up to 40% on some of the best indie games of the last several years.

Here’s a list of all the games on the indie sale:

  • Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition $13.99
  • Cuphead $13.99
  • Slay the Spire $19.99
  • Baba Is You $12.00
  • Unravel Two $4.99
  • My Friend Pedro $13.99
  • Terraria $20.99
  • Downwell $1.49
  • Torchlight 2 $11.99
  • Blasphemous $19.99
  • Castle Crashers: Remastered $8.99
  • SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech $17.49

We would strongly recommend Ori and the Blind Forest for fans of 2D action-platforming, Slay the Spire as a rogue-like deckbuilding card game, and SteamWorld Quest for a more story-based RPG deckbuilding card game.

The indie game sale isn’t the only sale currently running on the eShop. Just about everything except first-party Nintendo games are discounted.

Capcom games such as Phoenix Wright, Resident Evil, and the Mega Man games, are up to 75% off. Bandai Namco is also hosting a 75% off sale on the eShop, with games like Doraemon Story of Seasons and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. You can also find discounts on Overcooked and Yooka-Laylee (Team17 publisher sale), Mario + Rabbids and Assassin’s Creed (Ubisoft sale), and Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest RPGs on the Square Enix sale.

Each publisher sale runs for a different length of time. Check out the Sales and Deals page on the eShop for more details.
