I grabbed it.  :)

 

Gameplay vids seemed fun enough.  I'm a sucker for games with rpg elements and I always loved Super Mario World, so why not for less than $2.  Good luck to you Josh!

Thanks a ton PJ, hope you enjoy it.  :)

I could have sworn I bought Emerald Shores already. I think I was thinking of another game made by a CAGer.

Might have also been my Vita puzzle game, Super Blackout. :) Posted that one on sale in here a few times over the years

Shameless plug: my game Emerald Shores is $1.74 ($0.99) in the PlayStation Indies Sale.. basically "Super Mario World with light RPG elements + sidequests + minigames," about a 1-2 hour main story and about a 3-4 hour plat.  Cross-buy with the PS Vita version (Vita version should show up as "Free" after buying the PS4 one).  There's also a free strategy guide available here

If anyone out there is making games or interested in making games, the new Unity bundle (https://www.humblebu...-tools-software) is really good.  I know they do a lot of Unity bundles on Humble now, but this one is a standout IMO.

 

Smart Lighting 2D is one of my favorite assets.  That alone is already worth the $30 IMO.  TopDown Engine I think I paid $60 for a while back, too - although I didn't end up using it for anything, it was really impressive as a feature-packed starting point for a game.  Some of these other assets in here look really promising as well.

The NFL knows that the only way they can really protect their players from lifelong health issues is by switching to another sport. But at least they can pretend to care about player health by removing comic violence from a decades-old arcade game.

Im interested in Legion TD2, but not so much the rest. Anyone want to either sell their Legion TD2, or buy Deep Rock Galactic off me if I get the bundle?

 

edit: found someone

Already have three of em on other platforms, so it's a skip for me.  Of the two I've played...

 

Superhot's a ton of fun.  Unique concept and so well-executed.  One of those games everyone talks about a lot, but it totally deserves the praise it gets.

 

Pumpkin Jack is one I was excited about and followed during development, being a big fan of MediEvil, but the game felt a little underwhelming.  It's very polished but lacks the soul/charm that made MediEvil great.. just feels too "by the books."

Be aware that this is the "base" Family Membership, not the one that includes the Expansion Pack - so you'll get online play and SNES/NES games, but no N64/Genesis games and no free DLC for Mario Kart etc.
 
The SD card normally goes for around $35 on its own, so you're basically getting the membership free.

My game Emerald Shores is in this sale @ $1.99 ($1.24 for PS+ members). This is the all-time low price and the first time it's gone on sale in two years. :)

It's basically "take Super Mario World, add a level up system for jump damage, and throw in a bunch of sidequests and minigames." About 2 hours long, or maybe 3-4 for the platinum.

If you're going for the platinum, I have a free strategy guide online here that details all the sidequests, etc.: http://fordesoft.com...ld-shores/cover

Some more info about the retro trophy process here for anyone interested:

https://www.ign.com/...ted-retro-games

 

A trophy trigger is detected during emulation of the game by comparing a memory value of the emulated game to a predetermined value

Ara Fell looks good based on its Steam page.  Picked it up for $6.
