The Steam Holiday sale continues through this coming weekend, as the Valve-owned digital distribution portal extends its amazingly deep discounts for a wide variety of games, including the Mac variety, until 1 pm Eastern time on Monday, January 7th.
The Mac games included in the sale are some great ones, including Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a game we included in our top scariest games list last October. This formerly $19.99 game is now up for sale for a ridiculous $4.99.
You can get the entire Trine Collection, which includes Trine, Trine 2, and the expansion, Trine: The Goblin Menace, for your Mac for an easy $8.74, a full 75 percent off the usual $34.99 price it would cost you otherwise. Trine is a ton of fun, and well worth the nine buck on its own.
Civilization V: Game of the Year Edition is also 75 percent off, coming in at a delicious $12.49, instead of the more typical $49.99. If you dig strategy games, this is one of the best on the Mac or any other platform, really. You can also get the Gods & Kings expansion for a mere $7.49, as well. It’s highly recommended by my Civ-playing buddies.
Bastion, one of my favorite games, like, ever, is down to a hilarious $3.74 price, so go get it, please? The soundtrack is brilliant, the narrative is unique, and the gameplay is fun enough to keep you hacking and slashing well into the weekend.
If you’re a soccer fan, Football Manager 2013 is also on sale for 50 percent off, bringing this stats-happy, micromanagement, soccer-team manager game to your Mac for a mere $19.99. While it may not be my cup of tea, I’m sure there are folks out there who would love to obsess over a football team, putting it through its paces across a season or two.
So, if you’re looking to load up on some games for this weekend, pretending that it’s not a long haul till the next break from school or work, there’s at least five great Mac games that should strike your fancy, all available for distinct discounts over at Steam. Enjoy!
