Welcome to Shoestring Gaming, the weekly segment where we try to help you find good games to buy while not blowing out the bank. This week, we have a couple of great deals for you ranging from the completely obscure to the simple yet difficult. These games are coming from GoG, Steam and our very own TechRaptor GameFanShop.

First up, GOG is currently having their Bundle Tower Promo. Every day, a new floor of the tower is revealed and comes with up to four game bundles that are heavily discounted. This can range from old Lucasfilm adventures all the way to brand new games that have only been recently added to GOG. This promotion will be continuing until Sunday, April 19th at 12:59 PM GMT, so be sure to check back every day to see what new games have been added to the tower if you hope to get a good deal. All of these bundles are customizable, so if you already own a game in the collection then you don’t have to pay for it again and the bundle is even cheaper.

Dino D-Day

Dino D-Day is a fast paced multiplayer game involving Nazis and, you guessed it, dinosaurs. Adolf Hitler has successfully managed to bring the dinosaurs back from extinction and is now leading them in his campaign across Europe. You can choose whether to play the role of the allied forces or the Nazis, as well as human or dinosaur and take on your opponents. Since the games launch last week, they have added plenty of new content including a new game type, 5 new playable dinosaurs, steam integrated stat tracking and offline bot support. Dino D-Day is currently 90% off, meaning that it’s only $1 if you buy it or $3 for a 4-pack.

Pac-Man Championship Edition DX

Over at the TechRaptor GameFanShop, there is a sale on Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+. You get to see Pac-Man launch into the new generation as nearly every aspect of the game has been upgraded to include online features such as leaderboards over social media, and other content like different mazes, challenges to complete. You can customize difficulty, music, characters and visuals to make every experience different. Starting today, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ will be 40% off.

We’ll be giving out a 4-pack of Dino D-Day for Steam to one of our readers so that you can fight with or against the Nazi Dinosaurs with up to three of your friends. Want to enter? Leave a comment below with a memory of your favorite dinosaur related video game and your Steam ID. Whoever has the best memory wins, and we’ll send them the code via Steam next week.

What do you think of this weeks discounted games? Are there any games you’re planning on picking up? Any kind of games that you would like to see?

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
