Humble Bundle just kicked off their annual birthday celebration which will run for the next 11 days featuring hundreds of discounted digital PC games from both AAA studios and indie developers. Some of the savings are up to 75 or even 90% off. In fact, they’re even giving you a free game just for visiting the website and registering or logging into your account.
I got an email today about a kickstarter campaign for a new horror visual novel inspired by Japanese horror films such as Ringu and the Grudge. It’s currently half way to funding with only 5 days left.
It features 6 playable characters, fully animated sprites, and quick time events similar to telltales gaming mechanics.
There’s a playable demo also on the kickstarter page.
I just discovered Valthirian Arc: Red Covenant which according to the developer, “is an action-packed magical school simulator with a classic JRPG twist. You play the principal of an academy, tasked with training your students to save the world, all while finding missing cats, delivering love letters, and helping elderly ladies to cross the road… oh and fighting monsters.”
- School-simulation JRPG
- Unique 2.5D graphics
- Real-time battle system
- Manage and build your school
- Recruit and train your students
- Promote your students into various class levels
- Multiple endings
- For Pc, Mac, and Linux, Available on Steam and DRM Free
- Job Class System similar to FF5

The gameplay is 2 fold, focusing on managing your students so that they graduate, and then selecting a job class for them similar to Final Fantasy 5. Your students then go out and battle monster with a real-time active combat system.

I made this list in response to a forum question at http://kawaii.io However, the list was so long that it broke the thread, preventing anyone else from replying.
Some formatting may look odd until I have time to reformat this. I just wanted to move it off the forums to try to unbreak the thread in question.
