Mythological battles, intriguing explorable worlds and challenging survival are but a few of the experiences that you can expect when diving into the contents of this awesome bundle.
The Reaper Bundle 8 delivers a great variety of genres to choose from. Here, we've highlighted just some of the genres you'll get to enjoy when you pick up this time-limited collection!
If you love adventure...
For adventure fans, the mysterious steampunk world of Close to the Sun is recommended. Deep in international waters during the late 1800s, Tesla’s Helios stands still.
An unbound utopia for scientific research, Rose Archer steps aboard in search of her sister, quickly to discover not all is as it seems. A single word covers the entrance… quarantine!
You'll explore the colossal and mysterious vessel of scientific discovery, a safe haven for scientific progress, away from the threat of corporate espionage. Use your wits to guide Rose on her journey to find her sister Ada, overcome dangers unknown to understand the fate of the Helios and its inhabitants.
Solve challenging puzzles to progress through the game and unlock secret areas. Search every corner to uncover hidden collectables and discover the history and secrets of Wardenclyffe and its workers. GamesRadar+ described Close to the Sun as "A little bit BioShock, a little bit SOMA"
If you love atmospheric survival...
Brave war-torn times to get your survival fix with This War of Mine. The highly-rated Indie from 11 Bit Studios (the team behind Frostpunk) sees you control a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.
During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.
If you love hack 'n slash...
Slicing and dicing, you love it! And in Shadows: Awakening, there's plenty of hack 'n slash to round. This unique, isometric single-player RPG features brutal real-time tactical combat, where you'll take control of a demon summoned from the Shadow Realm - the Devourer - to consume the souls of long-dead heroes and embark on an epic adventure with challenging gameplay and a gripping storyline.
Do you have the focus and wits to master the world of the Heretic Kingdoms? It's time to find out as you gather your party, control powerful heroes and use their skills to your advantage.
If you love beat 'em ups...
If kicking ass and taking names is your bag, the Reaper Bundle 8's got you covered with One Finger Death Punch 2. The fast-paced beat 'em up brawler lets you experience cinematic kung-fu in the most epic stickman fighter ever made.
Rated 'Overwhelmingly Positive' on Steam, just like its predecessor, you'll find yourself surrounded, outnumbered and have to use any weapon you can get your hands on to dismantle your opponents in a flurry of kung fu. Speed and precision are key in this whirlwind fighting frenzy, as players maintain control over the 26 different unlockable skills, frenetic gameplay, and classic kung fu-inspired animations.
You play with only two buttons and every press matters - so don't button mash!
If you love casual games...
Listening to music is a nice relaxing wind-down, but being part of the music is even better. In the 'Overwhelmingly Positive' rated AVICII Invector, you'll soar through vocal melodies, sweep each fade and attack every beat in this enthralling futuristic rhythm-action experience - dedicated to the late award-winning DJ, Avicii.
Fly solo or recreate the party feeling of an AVICII concert with heart-thumping, competitive gameplay. Each track is built to perfectly match the on-screen visuals taking you through a musical odyssey of serene exploration. Ready to feel the beat? Then lay down your high score and rise up the Global Leaderboards, all while mastering 25 hit anthems from the phenomenal talent himself.
