    Void Bastards is, IMO, one of the best FPS-ish rogue lites that I've played. If someone has Amazon Prime (which includes Twitch Prime) then they should absolutely get this.

    It was also in the July Humble Choice and the Australia Fire Relief bundles.

    Edit: It's on GamePass for PC, too.

    Haxity Goes Completely Free
    Megapop announces that Haxity is now available for free on Steam offering all the content of this deck-building game without any costs or microtransactions. This is the result of their decision that it is no longer viable for them to support the game. Here's the unfortunate news:
    While we have received lots of positive feedback on the game, with a range of voices calling it the best deck-builder they have ever played, we have sadly not succeeded in making ‘Haxity’ a commercial success. At least not yet.

    Being an indie game developer is inherently about managing risks. It is difficult to make a commercially successful game, while penetrating the “jungle of attention”. We knew we were taking risks when we decided to make a new type of PvP card game. The deck-builder genre hadn’t even had its major breakthrough when we started developing Haxity. That kind of risk. We also knew we were taking a risk when we made the game a fair “premium” game, vs. making it all free. That our final year of development and hype stretch ended up in the middle of a global pandemic was an added ‘bonus’ to those risks.
    Sadly, all these risks have reached their conclusion, for now. And it did not end up the way we have worked so hard for.

    Rage 2 seems like a very cool free giveway to me. Definitely looking forward to giving this a try. Epic is seriously rocking the free games lately.

    Rage 2 has fun combat. That’s an improvement on Mad Max, which is a similar game (open world, drive everywhere, convoys as vehicle combat boss fights).

    Black Desert Online is free on Steam until the 10th. It's an MMORPG that's normally $20, and that's about as much as I know about it.

    In case people wanted something a bit more descriptive. BDO is basically an online massively multiplayer 3rd person over the shoulder Action RPG with a heavy emphasis on Combo oriented fast paced combat combined with extensive world building and PvP.

    In other words, if someone's concept of an MMORPG is WoW or Everquest, there are almost Zero similarities between BDO and those games other than it happens in a large open world. It's actually closer to something like God of War than it is to WoW or EQ. Well, that's if GoW had world building, free exploration, farming, harvesting, crafting, fishing, boat building, house building, house decorating, multiplayer, extensive character customization, wild horse taming, etc. etc.

    It's an amazing game with graphics that were at the time top tier with character creation that was head and shoulders above anything else on the market (single or multiplayer). The action combat is also far ahead of many single player 3rd person over the shoulder action games.

    However, just be aware that the end game features a signature of Korean MMOs ... grinding and lots of it. But even with that, it can be an extremely enjoyable game and there are potentially hundreds of hours of gameplay to be had (depending on what you are into) even without getting into end game grinding.

    The graphics really do look gorgeous. Weirdly low requirements for such graphics though, I wonder if that's a mismatch between the original and remastered version. I'd definitively pick this up if I had the time to play it. Unfortunately I'm barely 50% through Assassins Creed Odyssey right now with a backlog of at least half a dozen AAA games and growing, so the last thing I need is another game that will suck up 100's of hours! Especially as I only get single digit hours per week to game these days.
