Could you recommend me a game that is on steam summer sale.

 

Preferably a rpg or jrpg, action and adventure is nice, no shooters please

I'm looking for charmful game with nice graphics.

 

 

Currently playing DOS2 and Ghost of a Tale - which I finished and I enjoyed. Don't like Bard's Tale and Faery Legends of Avalon.

Not part of the Steam sale but some of the HBS games are on deep discount (and the first SR game is free) at the Humble store.

 

After a quick glance at Steam I can recommend Tyranny, Dawn of War 2, Titan Quest, and Battletech

Every time I look at a game and think about adding it to my cart, I stop and think "didn't you just buy like a hundred games at the last sale and only play 3 of them?"

I'm sad Regalia isn't on a steeper discount.  I am tempted to pick up Road Redemption, though.

If anyone is interested, this is what I was planning to buy:

https://store.steamp...Mysterious_Book

But unfortunately, my monitor is 1366x768 max, so I'm not sure can I run this game.

I picked Subnautica. It looks absoutely great and it isn't your typical gameplay environment either.

I ended up grabbing Oxygen Not Included, the latest Higurashi chapter, and Choice of Robots (been eyeing it forever).

Oxygen Not Included is a fun little colony management game, like Dwarf Fortress or Rimworld. Except Rimworld is like twice the price and ONI seems delightfully quirky, with more danger being from all of your oxygen escaping instead of getting overrun by monsters.

If anyone hasn't got this one yet, you better grab it on sale. It was the best game I played in the last year.

You're cutting into my liquor budget, I'll have you know.

I suggest the Shadowrun series, excluding Returns.

 

Dark Souls II and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen were mentioned already.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is slightly text-heavy, but an interesting party-RPG.

The Technomacer and the other Spiders' games are closer to action-RPG.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is something between Fable and The Elder Scrolls.

Hyper Light Drifter and Immortal Planet (isometric action-RPG with pixel graphics).

Dungeon Siege III (not the previous games in the series) is a quite good party-RPG.

Dex is a 2D action-RPG in cyberpunk setting.

Anima: Gate of Memories is an action with RPG elements (there are several endings).

Pretty high praise.  I'm gonna take a look at this title for sure.  Thanks Hurlshot

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a good choice. Then there is EARTHLOCK which is also good,

 

but does has mixed reviews on Steam. I'm going to be picking up Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

 

(with all DLC), RAGE (with The Scorchers DLC), Prey and also EARTHLOCK (buying the Collector’s 

 

Edition Bundle). I'm planning to buy those sometime before the Steam Summer Sales ends.

Kingdoms of Amalur was fun-ish, but I thought it really dragged. It's ridiculously full of stuff to do, but it's designed like an MMO where you go quest zone to zone as you level instead of just set off and explore.

But I was amazed at how huge it was. I got bored after the second area or so and decided to try training (running, letting the monsters aggro behind me) through to wherever. And it still took me forever until I hit a dead end.
