July: Summer Sale

Assassins, the enemy is moving. Gabe's forces are massing on Steam, his eyes are fixed on BLAEO. And our wallets, you tell me, have betrayed us.

Play and finish something you bought/will buy during this Summer sale. If you’ve already finished all the games bought during this sale or didn’t buy anything, then play something you bought during an older sale. Take a look at your old purchases by checking your “Account details”, then click on “View licenses and product key activations”. You can match those dates with this list of old Steam sales. Games bought during major Steam sales (length of 5 days or longer) qualify for this month’s theme.

You can use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep track of everyone’s progress, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!

Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.

What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?

What happens if I play all of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.

I don’t have any unfinished games!
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.

I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.

PS: So gifted games don’t count, right?


oh you went way back. I only went back to last summer. Good luck with those games. Went a little further but only had about 30 extra when counting dlc and gifts, did most of the games


I don’t buy many games on Steam so the selection is not that big for me :)


well i’ve brought many games on steam. Got the next 10 lined up for what I might play


Gifted games count as well if they were bought for you during a major sale.


Ah great then I will add one of them in case I have some time left :)

I have won some on SG, but I still missed few from their series and as I want to play them in order I have decided to complete my collection. ;)
Thanks! Grim legends were really good, can’t wait for Time Mysteries. :)


time mysteries 1 was the 1st hog I played which got me into the series. it definitely shows its age but I enjoyed both series
