    Sweet! Thanks for the heads-up :)

    Though it's kinda misleading, more like 10-60% off. Agent A is the only 90% and it's always ~$2.

  • +9

    Wait, are all of these Australian made?

    • +15

      Yep, we have a pretty big independent games industry :)

      There's even more games which aren't on Steam (Eg mobile & console or itch.io), or aren't participating in this sale too

      • +1

        Cool! Thanks, I'll pay attention to our local scene.

        Edit: i was gonna buy all of this except VR but the list is getting bigger O.o.

    Moving Out is from the same studio as Death Squared. DS is fantastic. Fantastic puzzle game with a fun story, great as couch co-op. I haven’t played MO yet but did buy it for PlayStation.

    • +1

      Death Squared is decent couch coop with a partner who doesn't do much gaming but wants to give it a try. It's nice working out the puzzles together.
      I have a massive aversion to the concept of treating a machine like it is a human, so the back and forth "banter" just repulsed me and that ruined any chance I had of enjoying the story.

      Moving Out is amazing. It's the same type of "yell at/with your friends as you deal with awkward controls to accomplish a task" that makes Overcooked very popular.
      The difficulty massively ramps up after the warehouse levels, so be ready for that.

    • +1 vouch for Moving Out. Non-gamer misso loves it too

  • +1

    Crawl by Powerhoof is a great couch based co-op [1-4 players]. You can use Parsec to remotely play it with others (I think Steam's online co-op thing doesn't work that well with it).

    • I agree. Played crawl at a friend's was surprisingly good.

  • +1

    AoE3 DE's been 75% off before? Damn.

  • +1

    Crawl is an excellent couch coop game, highly recommend. It's probably one of the best on this list. Also screencheat.

    • +1

      Thanks for acknowledging Screencheat, senpai (′ꈍωꈍ‵)

    • I played ScreenCheat at PAX years ago. Great game.

  • +2

    Spin Rhythm XD should be on this list! It's made in Brunswick


    edit: developer info

  • I haven’t heard of a few of these, any recommendations?

    • Agent A is an excellent point and click mystery game with some cool retro james bond secret agent stylings.
      Death squared is very enjoyable coop (and single player) puzzle game with a good difficulty curve but not so hard that you get stuck for too long.
      Pacman 256 the best pacman game ever(?).

  • +8

    Thanks for posting the deal, our studio has a few games up on this list! Screencheat, Feather, The American Dream, Roombo: First Blood and TRIOS are us! :D

    Screencheat: 4 player splitscreen shooter, where everyone is invisible so you have to look at each others' screens. Has local and online multiplayer.
    Feather: Do the relaxo, fly as a bird through serene landscapes with other birds in anonymous online multiplayer
    The American Dream: VR satirical comedy about living your everyday life with guns
    Roombo: First Blood: Be a robot vacuum cleaner that defends its house from burglars, Home Alone-style
    TRIOS: A relaxing maths puzzle game, designed to be accessible and fun for all skill levels

    Hope something there suits ya fancy!

      Good on you for developing games in Australia and for doing a good job of it. Much respect.

      • +2

        Thanks, we try our best! ^_^

  • +1

    Good to support local game studios! Didn't realise The Forgotten City was locally made :)

  • Push Me Pull You would be amazing it if supported online gameplay

    • You could use Steam remote play? Have you given that a go?

  • Are the devs getting this money from Forgotten City or is the publisher dispute still ongoing?

    • +2

      Are you thinking of the dispute over The Sinking City instead?

  • Loving all the couch co-op recommendations for Australian (i.e.: locked down) play

  • @luisvsm @winstonoftang - do you know if any of the listed games, which happen to be also listed on the GOG storefront, will be getting sales discounts just like their Steam storefront listing counterparts? Or are the sales discounts exclusive to Steam platform listings only?

    • +1

      This promotion was organised between Steam and Melbourne International Games Week, as far as I know GoG isn't doing anything for the MIGW event.

      • Thanks for the reply and clarification. To be fair, GOG are having their 13th Anniversary Sale - which does have a bunch of selected titles on sales discounts - so they're probably preoccupied with that, and their anniversary happens to coincide with MIGW

    • Yeah the MIGW sale is just on Steam from what I'm aware of, I'm not associated with any of those games though so I'm not sure what their sale plans are outside of the event.

  • Shoutout to Jacob for setting the discount on Paradigm to 69%

  • Never heard of MIGW! I'll check these out, thanks!

    I'm currently playing two games, one from Sydney, and the other from NZ. Amazing.

  • +1

    Goose game worth it or was it just hype when it was released?

    • +1

      It's a slick piece of cartoon humour if you have the time to solve some puzzles that are just good laughs with a goose. I did the first few and that was that. Progressing through a series of puzzle situations isn't my thing.

  • AoE3. Mic drop.

    • Not quite as good as the historic low though

  • Necrobarista should have a sequel: Necrobarrister. Like Phoenix Wright, but representing the deceased.
