Welcome to Shoestring Gaming, the weekly segment where we at TechRaptor try to find some great games that you can purchase without breaking the bank. This week on Shoestring we’ve grabbed you games from Steam, GreenManGaming, Humble store and a free Steam game.
First up is a game from the team that brought you You Don’t Know Jack, called The Jackbox Party Pack. This pack of games includes You Don’t Know Jack 2015, FibbageXL, a version of Fibbage with even more content, Drawful, Word Spud and Lie Swatter. All of these games require an internet connection to play and allow from 8 to 100 players in some games using devices such as tablets, personal computers or smartphones. Each of these games play extremely differently, but all are fun to enjoy with a group of friends around you. The Jackbox Party Pack is currently 50% off but only for a limited time.
Next up at GreenManGaming you can get the the PC 2D animated fighting game Skullgirls for 66% off. Skullgirls is a leap back to classic arcade six button fighters boasting plenty of variety in characters as well as variety in attacks and special moves. There is also the option to play with a team allowing for tag in-tag out gameplay, as well as proudly touting that they have an anti-abuse system to keep play free of abusive tactics. This game will redeem to steam if you choose to purchase it.
Fans of the Far Cry franchise, the last game is for you. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is currently on sale at the Humble Store. Blood Dragon was meant to be DLC that ended up becoming a stand alone game where you play as Sergeant Rex Colt as he has to try to take on a cyborg army and shut down a powerful bioweapon. This adventure takes the game you know as Far Cry 3 and then adds all kinds of crazy 80’s references and fantastic beasts for you to hunt down.
Finally, there is a chance to pick up a copy of the Steam game Dead Bits for free by simply putting in your email and redeeming the code that gets sent to you. Dead Bits is a colorful cube-based first person shooter where it is your aim to take out as many Alien Zombies as you can. If you want to learn more about the game before getting it for free then you can check it out on Dead Bits.
