6 Steam Indies on sale this week
It’s that time of the week again. The Lunar Sale may be over now, however, there are still a ton of great games offering significant discounts. Here are another 6 Steam Indies on sale this week.
Firstly, on our list of 6 Steam Indies is Munin. Developed by Gojira and published by Daedalic Entertainment. Munin is a 2D puzzle-adventure set in a Nordic world. You control Munin the messenger of Odin and attempt to reclaim her powers on a mission through Yggdrasil the world tree. Munin has the ability to rotate parts of the screen in order to create new paths or cause other environmental effects that will. Munin the messenger is actually a crow but she is stripped of her feathers and turned into a mortal girl by Loki the trickster god. Through 77 levels you will collect her feathers and reclaim her rightful form. Munin also boasts physics-based gameplay, shifting the levels will cause boulders and debris to fall and roll as gravity would intend. Water and lava will also flow and fill up any space below it, adding even more depth to the puzzle system.
Munin is 90% off until February 11th. With an estimated 7 hours’ worth of playtime that’s a lot of value for money.
Ultra Space Battle Brawl
Ultra Space Battle Brawl is a fun party game developed by Mojiken Studio. Published by Toge Productions. Described as a mixture of Pong and fighting games on steroids. And it’s a fairly apt description. There are elements of Pong (of course), Wind Jammers, Arkanoid/Breakout, and even some Lethal League vibes. The objective of the game is to hit a ball at your opponent’s defenses, while also trying not to let them hit yours. There are 10 starting characters with their own powers, skills, and quirks. Interestingly the characters all represent a part of Indonesian culture too. Who said games aren’t educational? The game supports up to 4 players so rounds can get pretty hectic.
Visuals in the game are inspired by classic 80’s Japanese titles such as Megaman. And the visuals aren’t alone here, as the music is a mix of funkot dangdut (Indonesian house music) and 80s synthwave music. And as another throwback to classic gaming, they also have an opening theme by Manami Matsumae of Mega Man fame.
At 90% off until February 12th now is a great time to get Ultra!
ATOMINE is a twin-stick procedural shooter rogue-lite game. Developed and published by Broken Arms Games. Inspired by the real-life weaponized virus STUXNET, ATOMINE is set in a virtual minimalistic world to replicate the computer world. While setting a game inside a computer and providing gameplay elements is not a new thing. ATOMINE is the first game I’ve come across that takes this idea with a real-world event as the backdrop.
The procedurally generated worlds task you with shooting a lot of enemies to get to the next one. Enemies are fast and come in massive waves, but as a computer virus (I guess you’re the bad guy?) you have infinite bullets. The game also provides you with a way to upgrade your gun as you play increasing your chance of success. As well as the enemies the game also throws large bosses at you and even instances of counter-hacking which make the game harder if you can’t thwart them. Making the game harder is a huge issue because every death you experience returns ATOMINE to the start.
ATOMINE is big on challenge, big on replayability and at 90% small on price. This one is on sale until February 13th.
Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?!
Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! is a wacky management game in which you (a Potato blacksmith), run a weapon shop, crafting items for heroes (also Potatoes) to use. This strange idea was developed by Daylight Studios who also published the game with assistance from the prolific Daedalic Entertainment. In this game, you need to hire blacksmiths, collect items, forge weapons, sell the weapons and reinvest your profits into the business to expand it further. There are 30 Potato blacksmiths, 20 areas, over 200 weapons and even 10 Pop Culture Potato’s to meet. With all this content you can sink a lot of time into this crazy game.
With 90% off until February 14th, there’s no better time to invest in your own weapon shop.
Decay: The Mare
Billed as a psychological horror game, gameplay-wise it’s probably closer to a point and click adventure. Developed by Shining Gate Software and published by (I swear this isn’t on purpose they just have a good catalog and run a lot of sales) Daedalic Entertainment. The story of Decay: The Mare is definitely not a family-friendly one. You control Sam a drug addict who enters a rehabilitation center to try and kick his habit and gain control of his life. But during the first night, something goes wrong and you’ll spend the rest of the game in a dark and ominous setting. Solving all manner of puzzles as you progress.
At 90% off until February 11th, the game is cheap enough to give it a shot. Especially if you’re a fan of Myst-like point and click adventure games.
Fearful Symmetry & The Cursed Prince
And lastly on the list of 6 Steam Indies is Fearful Symmetry & The Cursed Prince. A quirky little puzzle game from Gamera Interactive and publishers SODESCO Publishing. The game is pretty simple, navigate your characters through trap-laden puzzles to get to the end of each level. But it’s not that simple, the screen is split into two, a character on both the left and right of the screen. However, they are in different dimensions so input to one of the characters is reversed for the other. Simply this means if you move left and up for one side, the other will go right and down. It’s an interesting mechanic that is sure to trip most people up at first. You’ll have access to three different characters which means replaying a level might end up with another solution.
At 90% you don’t need to be a Prince to afford this game. But hurry because the sale on this one is only until February 4th.
So there we go, another week filled with indie titles that won’t break the bank. Hopefully, among these 6 Steam Indies, you find a new favorite. Stay tuned for more awesome deals in the future.

Coffee of choice: I like the sweeter kinds, mixed with chocolate, coconut, caramel etc. but I won’t turn down a flat white or a straight black either.
