Superhero Hype’s Best Amazon Game Deals for Sept 1
Families need to play together, and game suggestions are at hand. Be they video, board, or based on same, our guide wants to aid your fun time. In this ongoing series, Superhero Hype takes a look at some of the better deals Amazon.com has running as of publication time. This week, we’re going a little further afield, having already shared deals on some of the more obvious A-list titles, to find highly rated sci-fi and fantasy games that might be less obvious, but come highly recommended. (And are discounted, of course.) Please note that all deals are subject to change or sell out at any time based on supply and demand. Here are the deals for Sept 1:
Hunt down a serial killer in future Tokyo, using clues found at crime scenes and David Lynchian dreams. From the mind of Kotaro Uchikoshi, with character design by the Yusuke Kozaki. The limited edition includes soundtrack, acrylic stand, stickers, and a 30+ page art book. All at a 20% discount.
In this fantasy RPG, bring a family of mountain guardias closer together as the world around them falls into darkness. Marvel at the combination of hand-painted pixel art, frame animation, and modern lightning techniques, and balance the different skillsets of the Bergson clan. This time, saving the family matters more than saving the universe.
Brighten up a dark city with street art that comes to life and creates magical genies. Because that is a thing that people think about. The designers of this game, anyway. And everyone who plays it, because urban renewal is much harder in real life.
Discover a secret government agency building warped by unseen forces, defying physical laws. Try to regain control with the aid of supernatural abilities and reactive environments. Better yet, do it for 12% off.
Battle angels, demons, and everything else as the apocalypse Horseman Strife. Play co-op with a friend or alone as you explore an epic world and learn what happened before the events of the original game. All for just $17.92.
Original director Hideaki Itsuno returns to the series with more demons to hack and slash through, this time in Red Grave City. Play as one of three different protagonists, depending what sort of fighting style one favors. Do so well enough, and the devil may cry.
In this single-player RPG set during the days of colonists and pirates, discover a remote island and use diplomacy, deception, or force to guide its destiny. Perhaps the Lovecraftian monsters deserve a mention as well.
Land on a strange new planet to catalogue the local plants and wildlife, making accessories out of trash with a 3D printer. Then wonder, as you go along…are you really alone? Play solo or cooperate online, solving the mystery of this odd new world together.
Look, when your best friend is an intelligent, talking banana, and it tells you to rain destruction down upon your enemies, you do it! Includes a mini-poster, stickers, and soundtrack download code. Warning: bananas may be cute, but this one is not for kids.
Before the Will of the Wisps, spirit guardian Ori set out on a supernatural mission to discover the secret of a dying forest. This single-payer action platformer is suitable for all ages, tells an emotional tale of an orphan, and is a total steal at $15.79.
