RPG Maker is on the weekly bundle. I'm not sure when I'd have the chance to actually take a look at the software, but this is a heck of a deal.

I couldn't resits the deal, but I've already got the base VX Ace and To the Moon. If anyone wants either, I'm willing to give them away or (preferably) trade something over Steam.

^ Are you able to sell them over Steam somehow? I wouldn't expect them for free. I already have RPG Maker VX Ace, but would like to get it for a friend. Also, I'd be interested in To the Moon.

^I thought I could at least do inventory trading, but Valve appears to have changed their system so that I can't activate keys for games I own at all. Now the only option is sending a link to the key, weirdly.

I really don't mind not getting anything for them considering how ridiculous this sale already was. Just mentioned that in case anyone else has been sitting on free licenses in their inventory they're never going to use. Or even trading cards.

When did they change that? I thought inventory trading was a standard feature for Steam. Maybe I heard wrong.

Well, if I ever have something sitting in an account, I'll still hand it over. :smile: Although, I don't really use Steam often. I think I tried some free MMOs, that's about it.

Anyway, you can send me the links when you feel like it. Thanks! :awesome:

It still works for gifts purchased or received through the store, but product keys from other sources activate directly into your library now.

Sent the links in a PM. Enjoy!

I see. I like the idea of being able to trade games amongst users freely, maybe with a small transaction fee.

Thanks, I'll be trying out TtM first. Have you beat it yet?

Yeah, I played it around two years ago. It's only about three hours long, but there's some really neat ideas in it and the story is one of the better ones in games. Plays kind of similar to Corpse Party, weird of a comparison as that is.

Not too weird of a comparison, really, if you think about it. They were both actually made with RPG Maker. I played Corpse Party to its end, still one of my favorite horror games.

German weekly bundle has a couple decent looking puzzle games and The Guild II. I'm a big fan of The Guild. Far from a perfect sim but still enjoyable.

Gamepedia bundle seems to be a random selection of games. Bought for ReignMaker, a match 3 game with light city building/RPG elements.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing
Deadlight
Galactic Civilizations II: Ultimate Edition

BTA (currently $5.95)
Terraria
King of Fighters XIII Steam Edition
Crusader Kings II

BTA 2 ($15)
Age of Empires II HD + The Forgotten DLC
Age of Empires III: Complete Collection

Bought for Crusader Kings II, which has been on my wish list for a while waiting for a better price. Galactic Civilizations II looks like it could be interesting. If I did not already own AOE3 on Steam, I would be all over that next tier.

If you can actually get into Crusader Kings II it has a brilliant design and gameplay that makes you think "god dammit why am I so invested in this"

^If you're going in expecting a normal game, yeah, it's probably gonna be pretty crap. It's a weird combination of Choose Your Own Adventure and time/stat management that works decently well if you're in the right mood and enjoy obsessing over numbers. The story and art are kinda crap, but it could've worked as a command line game, so w/e.

Bought it for Defender's Quest, Valdis, and Yawhg. Threw the point-and-clicks into my giveaway topic.

LLTQ is pretty much a sparkly glitter-based Fighting Fantasy book.
