Gong Home: Steam are selling BAFTA nominees at cut price

Gone Home is the work of Steve Gaynor and his team of three at Fullbright.

The gaming BAFTAs happened last night – and until the Oscars get a little more lax with their licensing, it’s pretty much the best gongfest we have. Our Fraser was disappointed by the scarcity of surprises – but I consider any evening that celebrates PC indie things like Gone Home and Papers, Please a good one.

You’ll find both of those games on sale on Steam today, uncoincidentally, alongside their fellow nominees – apart from GTA Online, which isn’t on PC and definitely wouldn’t be its best multiplayer game if it was.

The sale is running for 24 hours – only I’m not sure when it began, or consequently when it’ll end. It’s definitely on now, at the time of writing, and features the following impressive bunch:

  • Civilization V: Brave New World
  • Papers, Please
  • Surgeon Simulator 2013
  • Football Manager 2014
  • NBA 2K14
  • Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Gunpoint
  • Rayman Legends
  • BioShock Infinite
  • XCOM: Enemy Within
  • The Stanley Parable
  • Gone Home
  • Grid 2
  • Democracy 3
  • Tomb Raider
  • LEGO Marvel Super Heroes

Buy Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, because it was the best game of last year, and then Gunpoint, because it came close, and then Football Manager – because Miles Jacobson is upset.

“The BAFTA Games awards prove that Football Manager is the Arsenal of games,” the Sports Interactive manager tweeted this morning. “Always qualify for the CL, but haven’t won a trophy for years.”

Cheer him up, won’t you?
