Another sale, another cheap little hidden gems hunting post!! (been a while...)

Good games under (Or around) one buck, - ver. Summer Sale 2024

As always, the rules are:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/19680/Alice_Madness_Returns/ This game is a gem, I won it here and I loved it, an action platformer that kinda has everything into it, for 1,49€

yea i know that, i hosted giveaway few years ago for Sleeping dogs: DE and the winner was from Germany. didnt know about that specific restrictions and i had to delete GA to host it again with proper restrictions. as i know this is because of year of the snake dlc which is too brutal for some people.

[]() gave me a smile.

I need to add that to a template.

I had just added Orbox C to my wishlist yesterday, and I'll come back with an edit to this response to let everyone know if I think it is either as good or as decent as it looks in the trailer.

-51% = $0.49

If you want to play Invisigun Reloaded online, using the game's Discord server is the best way.

I can confirm Gato Roboto, Grow Home and Styx are nice games as well.
