I just noticed that Zeno Clash
is on sale on Steam right now for $1.
The game takes place in a weirdly surreal setting with interesting characters and environments and creatures. I liked the story. Unfortunately I thought the combat wasn't that great, and IIRC that makes up about 95% of the gameplay, but maybe I just sucked at it?
I think it is worth $1, and the game is worth at least one playthrough (if you have the patience for it) just to get the story and to see how it all unfolds. Sometimes I want to play through it again so I can get a refresher on the story and experience it again, but then I remember how much I disliked the combat and decide not to. Such a shame. Maybe if I had some cheat codes. . .
Anyway, get it for $1 while the sale lasts.
