If your pride can take it, that is
Tony Ponce laid it out in his review, but to reiterate, Volgarr the Viking is worth your time if you're down for a challenge. The 2D action game is half price in a 48-hour sale on Steam which started earlier this morning. At a discounted $5.99, this is an easy recommendation to make.
The only thing that held me back from playing Volgarr sooner than I did was its art style. It's a bit ugly, particularly in screenshots. But in motion -- and scaled properly -- you grow accustomed to the look. The animation is actually quite good, for that matter. There's also the whole "trying not to die" thing, which serves as a perfectly good distraction.
Rastan fans, you must get this.
Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
