Dead Space games 75% off in Steam’s Midweek Madness

Steam has kicked off their Midweek Madness promotion and you can grab some decent deals. The biggest price slash is for Dead Space and Dead Space 2, priced at just $4.99 each. So, if you’ve somehow managed to avoid playing either of these titles, your low-risk proposition has arrived. I played the hell out of the first and went through the second a couple of times as well and would consider this to be a pretty easy suggestion for folks to follow through on.

Also on sale is indie space sim Evochron Mercenary, half off at $12.49. Reading the description, it’s the sort of ambitious game that I want to experience yet fear that I would become paralyzed by choice. When there are too many options and no clear direction in a game, I have a tendency to lose interest. I’d love to hear from some of the folks who’ve played that one before I decide whether or not to pick it up. Any among you lot given Evochron a spin?

Tell me quick. Both deals end Thursday at 4pm Pacific.
