Pick up a pixel perfect indie in the new Xbox One video game sale.
A new Xbox One sale launches today offering discounts of up to 75% on games brought to life through the magic of pixel art. The sale includes a range of acclaimed classics, plus some more recent indie darlings.
Pick of the bunch is a 20% price cut for Motion Twin’s amazing rogue-like, Dead Cells. If you have so far managed to resist the game’s charms we recommend you do yourself a favour, and give in.
Fans of classic Super NES adventure games should also check out D-Pad Studio’s marvellous Owlboy, which receives a 40% price drop. Elsewhere, Digital Sun’s Moonlighter is reduced by 25%, as is Eric Barone’s farming phenomenon, Stardew Valley.
There are also a few games on the list that fell through the critical gap. Dandara, for example, combines an intensely satisfying traversal mechanic with a sharply designed world to explore. Also recommended is music puzzle game, Chime Sharp. Both are available with a 40% discount.
Here is the full list of sale titles. Head over to the Xbox One digital store, or the Microsoft web store, to see the full list of titles available in your region.
Here are our recommendations.
