Allow me the honor of restarting the adventure game discount thread.  Sales of note to be posted here.  Great deals to follow.

Though not technically adventure games, the Assassin’s Creed games usually get a lot of attention in these forums.  Steam has the games 50-75% off today only.  ($5 for AC2!)

Groupees, one of the indie bundle sites, just launched a new one. In this one you can build your own bundle of 3 to 12 games. The first three games are $1 each, the next 6 are 75 cents each, and if you choose to buy more than 9 the remaining ones are 50 cents each. So the way it works is you can get three games for $3, 4 for $3.75, 5 for $4.50, 10 for $8, etc. I’m not sure what any international prices are. Don’t be afraid to be generous and go above the minimums. 20% of donations goes to Polar Bears International.

Out of the 12 games, two are adventure games—Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals (Steam key) and Dark Fall: Lost Souls (Steam key and DRM-free download).

Amazon continues to slowly add adventure titles to its ongoing sale.  Now on sale for download only are:

Adam’s Venture Episode 2 for $2.49.
Baron Wittard for $2.49.

I think I’ll pick up Baron Wittard.  I can’t remember having seen it on sale before.

Gamefly has a 33% off sale on Valve PC titles. $6.69 for Portal and $20.19 for Portal 2. Obviously they require Steam. Both will likely be cheaper in a month during the Steam summer sale. I’m guessing Gamefly is US only, but I can’t say for sure.

There’s a new indie promotion going on called Because We May. It’s basically just a group of devs that are putting some of their games on sale together at the same time for this last week of May. It’s across multiple stores so there are direct downloads, iOS, Android, Steam, etc.

Sale prices are now listed on the promotion page, but not all have dropped yet in their actual stores. I expect that’ll happen throughout the day.

The adventure games are:
Jolly Rover - $4.99 > $3.50 - Direct (PC & Mac), Steam
Space Madness - $5.95 > $1.99 - Direct
Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP - $4.99 > $2.99 - iOS(universal)
Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP Micro - $2.99 > $0.99 - iOS(iPhone)
Secret of Moonwall Palace: 2 games - $2.99/$1.99 > $0.99 - iOS(separate HD & iPhone)
Stacking - $14.99 > $7.49 - Steam

It’s possible that I missed a few so you may want to check the promo page yourself.

Steam has Nancy Drew®: The Haunting of Castle Malloy 50% off, down to $3.49 for the next ~22 hours.

FYI, Amazon still has this game and a bunch of other Nancy Drew games on sale for $2.99. I believe this is the last day of the sale.

GamersGate has just launched a new service called VOID.

You can download any of the select games in the VOID catalog. To play a game you must first watch a 60-second ad. Seems like an interesting model!

http://www.gamersgate.com/VOID

Adventure games I noticed in the VOID catalog are:

Secret Files: Tunguska
The Black Mirror
Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder
Dark Fall: Lost Souls

I was just going to post about VOID as well Grin

I installed The Black Mirror to test the service. Every time you start the game you are treated to ads totaling somewhere between 90 seconds and two minutes. They are all game-related (I saw an ad for WOW:Cataclysm, some casual cartoony hack-n-slash, and an ad for VOID itself). And then the game starts so I think there are no other strings attached.

A couple of other adventure games that I saw while browsing the VOID catalog were Forever Worlds and Adam’s Venture 3 (not that I would jump on the chance to play these two).

I don’t think that the slot’s cooldown time is mentioned at the overview page so mine is 14 days. So in two weeks I will be able to replace TBM with a different game…

(Incidentally, I am having graphics issues with the game and troubleshooting those will be a pain if I have to wait two minutes before every start…)
