Slender: The Arrival, Blood of the Werewolf hit Steam at a 20% discount

Blood of the Werewolf and Slender: The Arrival are now available on Steam, bringing a batch of Greenlight-approved horror to this week’s Halloween festivities.

Slender: The Arrival is a reimagining of the first-person indie freeware hit Slender: The Eight Pages, developed by Blue Isle Studios in collaboration with Slender mythos creator Eric “Victor Surge” Knudson. The Arrival expands on the original game’s premise with new narrative elements and improved graphics while upping the horror quotient with Oculus Rift support.

In the 2D platformer Blood of the Werewolf, players assume the role of a part-time mother and full-time werewolf as she quests to rescue her kidnapped child from a gang of movie-inspired monsters. Blood of the Werewolf, coincidentally, was part of this month’s collaborative Not on Steam Sale. As of today, it’s not not on Steam.

Both games are available for 20 percent off of their regular prices through November 4.

Shin Megami Tensei IV summons $10 discount

Shin Megami Tensei IV summons $  10 discount

Purchase Shin Megami Tensei IV by October 14, and the game will set you back $ 40 – a $ 10 discount over its standard $ 50 price point.

As publisher Atlus points out, this is the first official discount the 3DS roleplaying game has gotten since its debut on July 16. This price cut applies to both digital download and physical retail incarnations of the game.

If you’re on the fence about picking this game up, have a look at our review of Shin Megami Tensei IV in which we award it 4/5 stars. “If you’ve ever wondered what all the Shin Megami Tensei fuss was about, Shin Megami Tensei 4 is a great entry point,” our Susan Arendt wrote. “It eases you into the gameplay without babying you, giving you the tools you need to succeed and enjoy your adventure while still providing a hefty challenge.”

“It’s not the prettiest thing you’ll ever pop into your 3DS, and the story isn’t the series’ strongest, but SMT4 will demand your full attention every step of the way.”
