Midweek and daily deals abound
Developed and published independently by tobyfox, who also composed the game's soundtrack, Undertale is an RPG where you don't have to kill a single monster - you can befriend them instead. The 2D game features a battle system in which the player can talk his way out of the fight. Undertale is available now on Steam, at a 50 per cent discount, for £3.49. The offer ends on the 13th of January.
Banished, the strategy simulation by Shining Rock Software, is also up for grabs at a 66 per cent discount for £5.10 in another daily deal. In Banished, resources are everything, as they provide the limitations for the players looking to build and expand their city. Twenty different professions are available for the settlers, ranging from mining to healing. There are no skill trees and the merchants are the only way to acquire livestock and crops, but they might be carrying a foreign disease or two.
