Ten Hidden Gems in Steam’s Summer Sale

Whenever there’s a Steam sale, there’s usually a few games that are tucked away in a corner somewhere that have no advertising. Even though most of these aren’t big enough to be featured on the main page, they are still gems that should be bought up. We’ve compiled a list of games that we feel either deserve to be purchased and is an incredible value. The rule is that it has to be at least 70% off, otherwise there’s a chance it will drop in price again before the sale ends. If you find anything else we may have overlooked, be sure to let us know below!

To The Moon – $2.99 (70% off)

While short, this is a surprisingly emotional story that pretty much any computer can play.

Daedalic Bundle – $19.99 (75% off)

While they’re not without flaws, I will continue to defend Daedalic Entertainment’s excellence, and five of their fantastic games for four dollars each is a steal.

    I haven’t even heard of No Time to Explain, but picked it up after seeing that steep discount on it.
