Draknek & Friends is the ever-evolving developer collective behind some of the most popular puzzle games of the last decade. Out of A Monster’s Expedition to A good snowman is hard to findthey’ve earned a reputation for mind-bending entertainment and this weekend they’re curating a whole festival of puzzle games on Steam. We have selected a few highlights below.

Obviously the Draknek & Friends game collection is included, which means Bonfire Peaks, A Monster’s Expedition, Cosmic Express, A good snowman is difficult to build (dropped by 75 percent), and Sokobond are all discounted. In fact, an hour before the start of the four-day event, there was the rather boldly titled Draknek Direct, in which DLC for A Monster’s Expedition was announced, along with new areas for Bonfire Peaks. Sokobond is also finally coming to mobile, and there was an update on the upcoming one Sokobond Express.

Other games in Puzzle Fiesta worth your attention are the Amazingly Difficult (read: I couldn’t get out of the third level) She remembered caterpillars85 percent down and you for less than two dollars. Or how about 2019 wonderful baby you are30 percent discount and down to ten dollars.

those years big indie puzzle hit, Patrick’s paraboxonly scores 10 percent, but it’s a stunning game well worth the 18 bucks. In the meantime, The pedestrianThe great character-based adventures of are available at half price at the magic $10.

a favorite of mine GNOGis a 3D puzzle game that’s all about play, not an intellectual challenge, and you can grab it for $7.50. Or if you want your brain churned out completely, you can check out Mindbending and Beautiful Gorogoabelow a whopping 70 percent at $5.

For a slightly bigger name, Outer Wilds is also included, almost half the price for $15or the massive hit of 2018, Return of the Obra Dinnwhich is $14 this weekend.

FTL Follow-up from the makers of Subset Games, into the breachis half at $7.50while the woefully unknown is amazing ETHEREAL has fallen by four fifths to just $2.

And now please forgive me: as someone who has played this genre all his life, believe me when I say that I think the following games are the best puzzle games ever made. First up is my absolute favourite, hex cells. If you could cut me in half you’d see my inside is hexagonal in homage to this masterful and extraordinary trilogy of games, all of which are brain-altering good. You can pick up all three at the ridiculous price of $2.70and believe me you will write me thank you emails when you do that.

Then number two on my list of 50 billion games Tameza puzzle game that I’ve been repeating in an endless loop since it was released in 2017. It’s a combination of Picross, hex cellsand minesweeper, creating puzzles that get so extraordinarily difficult that you’ll end up devoting days to just one. and it’s less than a smelly dollar!

There are over a hundred games on offer, So you would do well to read it. I’ll certainly look for any I’ve missed over the years, like the happiest pigs in the most puzzling shit. Some wickedly good puzzle games are now way cheaper on Steam
