Also Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition is free for those who pre-order LeChuck's Revenge SE today.

EDIT: wow! Time Gentlemen, Please!; Safecracker; Samorost 2 are 2,50 each. I don't know, but I think I'll buy Tropico.

EDIT 2: Culpa Innata is $3,40 and Trine is borderline stealing for $4,00.

I must be cursed, download limit (currently 30gig a month) doesn't go up until 9th of July (to 80gig). oh well, here's hoping for more special offers throughout the summer

You don't have to download them now, you can buy them now - while the offer is still on - and download them whenever you like.

Yeah, all buying them does is add them to your account. Once they're on your account, you can download and play them whenever you want, so buy away!

The Whispered World is in a more fair price now, even though we europeans are being robbed once again. But i might buy it.

How is Culpa Innata? I've been interested in that game for a while now, not sure if l'll buy it, but its cheap anyway.

Also MATA HARI is 4.99$!!
TELLTALE EVERYTHING PACK 49.99$

Is Full Pipe good? it's only 1.24$??

A little off-topic but I think the Witcher is on offer till 12 Aug, unlike the rest which are either daily offers or till 4 July. Just guessing, but could this be because Witcher 2 is on its way, I hope so.

Is the monkey island offer (2 for 1) still good for today? Or was it a one-day only? I don't see anything about the offer on the steam site today.

Whoo!

Thanks! I did look at that page before, but I must have a tendency to miss things that are right in front of me.

I would hold off on the Telltale pack for now. it might be a daily deal and could be cheaper.

I'm waiting until the final day to see if anything I want shows up as daily deal.

EDIT: OMG! 75% of all Civilization games? That puts me in a dilemma. I'm not a fan of Civ, nor I have time to play them but I'm obviously losing money by not buying it!

OMG!!! I have to use all of my self control to not start buying out the whole store. Ghost Master is a steal at 95 CENTS, and well worth it! I'm getting tempted by the Sherlock Holmes games, and I haven't even given the Civilization games any thought before now. My hands are twitching to start buying!! I'm definetely going to pick up Culpa Innata, and I'll probably end up getting more.

EDIT: I only heard of the sale yesterday. Did I miss any good Daily Deals before yesterday? Like what?

Today's daily deal is... The Tales of Monkey Island Complete Pack for 11.90.

Also the Oddworld pack (Abe's Exodus and Abe's Odyssey) is also just 2.50. Though considered to be a platformer, it does feel like an adventure game at times.

Check back on the last day of the sale. For the last Holiday sale, Steam put all of their daily deals back on sale again.

I think today's deals are the first adventure games featured in the daily deals, though yesterday's $1.99 Flotilla deal, has some adventure game elements, ie choose your own adventure style.

The only problem with this sale is that these titles are on STEAM. I will never support a system that requires people to be online to play a game that they supposedly own.
