Meanwhile, over at GOG.com, you can find a whole bunch of the best adventure games on offer with some serious discounts. This includes point-and-click classics like Broken Sword, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle Remastered and more, as well as the more recent, evolved form of adventure games like The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, etc. There are even some indie gems in there, in the form of Gemini Rue and Primordia at bargain prices. If none of that satiated your thirst for narrative-driven adventure, give I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream a go, it'll make you distinctly uncomfortable for days.

GOG's Adventure Game Sale - Up to 80% off

Original Story: Hello there. Happy Tuesday and all that. For some reason, online retailers all over the place have seen fit to use this week to discount some PC download games by quite a nice margin. Quite why this is, who knows, but it makes more sense to gather all the key offers up into one big post here, rather than mess around talking about each individual site's offers.

So with that in mind, please enjoy this roundup of the current best PC download offers from around the wild, wild web.

GOG.com's offerings

To kick things off, GOG.com's ongoing weekly deals have switched over to a brand new set - as things labelled 'weekly' tend to do every seven days. The new offerings include Deponia, Saints Row The Third, Metro: Last Light and Risen, among a few others, with up to 90% off. Here are some highlights.

  • Metro 2033 Redux for £3.79 / $4.64 / €4.39
  • Metro: Last Light Redux for £3.79 / $4.64 / €4.39
  • Saints Row The Third for £3.09 / $3.74 / €3.59
  • Deadlight: Director's Cut for £2.29 / $2.77 / €2.69
  • Risen 3: Titan Lords for £3.79 / $4.64 / €4.39
  • Deponia 4: Deponia Doomsday for £11.99 / $14.89 / €14.09

GOG's Weekly Sale - Up to 90% off

Elsewhere on GOG, you'll find the first-person adventure game sale, with up to 85% off some classic first-person puzzlers including Myst, Riven, Journeyman, Atlantis, The Ball, Dream and more. If you don't fancy Myst, you could also go for Myst: Masterpiece Edition or perhaps Real Myst. Failing all that, there's Real Myst: Masterpiece Edition, just to make things even more confusing.

Green Man Gaming's offerings

Next up to bat, Green Man Gaming has discounted its asking price for the PC version of Nier: Automata, just over 10 days after its launch. You can currently grab a copy of the fascinating existential robot brawler for £29.99 / $44.99 / €44.99. Keep in mind, you'll need to be signed in to get that price, but accounts are free.

The site has also brought back its 'Loot Boxes' offer, where you can opt to drop some money on a blind box of up to ten keys, with the chance of getting brand new releases, indie games or store vouchers. You'll also get an extra 10% off of any of these boxes by entering the code LOOT10 at checkout.

Humble's offerings

Over at Humble (both Bundle and Store varieties) you can pick up some nice savings, too. The site's current Software Bundle offers you the chance to get a stack of software that will, unsurprisingly, be ideal to get you up and running with your own gaming stream. Pay what you like and you'll get stuff like FaceRig and Quiplash to play with, pay a little more and you'll get a 3 month XSplit Premium membership among other things, and pay above $12 (£9.50ish) and you'll get a dedicated VPN, which is neat.

Pay what you like for Humble Software Streaming Bundle

Also worth noting that today only, the super weird and kind of wonderful Gunman Taco Truck from Romero Games (yes, that Romero Games) is 50% off, bringing the price down to £4.49 / $5.99 / €5.99. If you haven't heard of Gunman Taco Truck, it's a sort of Mad Max/Cooking Mama hybrid that puts you in the role of the owner of a taco truck, tasked with murdering mutants and making them into tacos. I mean, what else did you expect, really?

GamesPlanet offerings

Last but not least, the folks over at GamesPlanet are hosting a Spring Sale with a range of titles on offer and different discounts offered up each day. Some of the offers available at the time of writing include the following:

GamesPlanet Spring Sale - Ends 2nd April

There you go, plenty of PC downloads to sink your teeth into, if that's your kind of thing. Happy hunting.
