Hades, one of the best games of 2020, is available for $12.49, 50% off its original price. But an even better deal is the Supergiant Games Bundle for $35.63, which is 73% off the total price of four games and five soundtracks. You will have Hades, Bastion, Transistor, And Pyre – with each of their soundtracks – and a 10th anniversary soundtrack featuring music from all the games. THE Bastion the soundtrack, which has won several awards, is worth the price of the whole thing, in my opinion; the music from Supergiant’s first game absolutely slaps.
The developer plans to release Hades 2 in Early Access in 2024, and what better way to prepare than to revisit Supergiant’s back catalog? —Nicole Charpentier

El Paso, elsewhere was released in September by developer Strange Scaffold, but you can get it right now for $15.99, which is 20% off its original price of $19.99. If you’re a fan of Max Payne and PlayStation 1 visuals – or just original third-person shooters – it’s worth checking out El Paso, elsewhere out. As James Savage, you can slow down time to take down many different monsters. Not only is it a solid shooter, but El Paso, elsewhere also has a great story. -NC

Cocoon is a game that surprised me a lot; it was like it came out of nowhere and was suddenly at the top of my games of the year list. Released at the end of September by Geographic Interactive, Cocoon is a puzzle game about worlds within worlds within worlds, most of which exist inside orbs that you can carry around. In addition to containing worlds, orbs each have their own special powers, meaning they each have a different role in discovery. Cocoonthe secrets.
Despite its recent release, Cocoon is available for $19.99, 20% off its original price of $24.99. -NC

When Dead space was originally released in 2008, it received tons of praise for being a truly scary sci-fi shooter. The game’s 2023 remake, originally released in January, lives up to that legacy. Isaac Clarke’s terrifying journey through USG Ishimura looks better than ever, even under a thick layer of grime and blood, and the narrative’s detour into new territory does a good job of humanizing Isaac. THE Dead space remake is one of the best survival horror titles available in a golden age of the genre, and with 50% off (that’s $29.99), it’s worth the thrill for the thrill of eviscerating hordes of necromorphs scary. — Cass Marshall

Two-player cooperative games are surprisingly rare, considering most of us have at least one friend. An exit And It takes two are exceptions to the rule that rely entirely on two-player cooperative play. The stories are quite different, but the core mechanics are similar and based around playing with a friend.
In An exitPlayers take on the role of two convicts who team up to escape prison and seek revenge, while It takes two is the story of a couple on the verge of divorce who find themselves trapped in doll bodies. Both tales require players to work together to create a platform, solve puzzles, and overcome obstacles. An exit is 85% off, down to just under $5, and It takes two is 75% off, or $11.99. -CM
