UPDATE 2018-06-28: Got them all but refunded interLogic. See below. Also got Rune Classic because... Nostalgia and now I don't have to go searching through a bajillion boxes for the discs. And they've updated the game so that it runs on a modern computer. I don't know if I'll get anything more... I have a few more days to contemplate, though.
Here's what I'm looking at right now (all prices are in U.S. currency):
* Interlogic: 0.99. Nice simple puzzle game. Level editor included in case you want to use your creative side. UPDATE 2018-06-28: Refunded. A bit too simplistic for my tastes and the production values were more than a bit amateurish.
* Age of Decadence: 4.99. Been following this game for what feels like half of my life long before it was ever released. Supposedly a 'hard-core' RPG in the vein of Fallout 1/2. Finally at a "What the hey? If it sucks I didn't waste a ton of money on it" price.
* Aliens v. Predator (2010): 2.39. Low-cost game that scratches the FPS itch. The price is the complete package, not that I'll ever use the mult-player option but it's always nice to have the full game and avoid the DLC scam.
* Diluvion (Fleet edition) : 3.74. A bit of a gamble even at this price but it's a nice price and it supposedly has a "FTL meets Jules Verne" vibe to it. UPDATE 2018-06-28: Also got the "Derringer" sub DLC because... Heck, I might as well be a completist when it comes to the gameplay.
* Fight the Dragon: 1.99. Voxel art meets Action-RPG. The big appeal (at least to me) is the low price and level editor (along with all of the fan content).
* Dawn of Discovery Gold: 3.74. Scratches the empire/world-building itch at a low price.
* Imperium Galactica II: 2.49. Solid 4x sci-fi game at a low price.
* Defense Grid 2: 3.74. Mindless tower defense that's supposedly good at it's genre. Level editor & tons of free content adds replayability & value.
* Homeworld Remastered: 8.74. I allow myself one "splurge" per large sale (Summer/Winter) if I so choose. This one is it. Liked it when it was first released. Only knock on this is that it doesn't have Cataclysm (supposedly, the source code for Cataclysm is lost). I don't need the soundtrack but to each their own.
Anyway, there are others that are on the bubble but those are the ones that I'm looking at for now. Feel free to critique.
So, does anyone have recommendations?
I like sales to lower the amount of games in my wishlist a bit. I get all the games that are lower than a dollar and a couple of more expensive ones. So far the only more expensive one I found is The Witness. I haven't played much yet but I do like what see so far. Just a straightforward collection of puzzles on an island. I haven't checked the cheap ones yet.
