Steam Halloween Sale Goes Live (Technically, It’s Gone Undead)

News & Rumors Steam

This might be a shock to you, because it certainly was to me: Halloween hasn’t actually started yet. We’ve still got about a day left, yet anything remotely Halloween-related has already been going on for a few days now. How will I be able to celebrate… uhh, the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage on the 27th of October, when people are just going around asking for candy while dressed as video game characters (some of them even appear to be dressed as homeless people, although they tend to ask for money instead)? That’s just not right, not right at all.

But what if cheap horror games are involved? Then… well, I suppose all sins are forgiven after all. Screw you, Audiovisual Heritage Day! It’s time to play Killing Floor with my friends!

Steam Halloween Sale Goes Live (Technically, It’s Gone Undead)

As you could tell from the title above, Valve have launched Steam’s Spooky Spectacular Halloween Sale, which began just several hours ago, and is set to end on the 31st of October. You’re looking at “monster savings” on over 80 “spooky, creepy, scary AND eerie” different games. According to Valve: “prices are so low, it’s scary.” You know we’re living in harsh times when we’re actually scared of low prices. What if it was Steam sales that sunk Lehman Brothers in September of 2008, thus setting the stage for the Great Recession. What if Valve meant to do it all along, in order to take advantage of a harsh economic landscape using the power of amazingly cheap video games? What if that’s not a bad thing? What if Halloween was involved?!

All I know is: that’s a brilliant plot for a cheap horror game. But until you get to play Vic’s very own “Baal Street: Satan versus Gabe Newell & the Federal Reserve” (and it’ll be so great, it’ll have its own entire Steam sale), take a look at these other 80 horror games.

  1. Thanks for the heads up. I’m $15 poorer now :D I’m sure I’ll get to these just as soon as I get to the dozen or more I picked up over the summer sale. Yep I’m sure of it.
