    Steam is having a gigantic sale on games for Black Friday, so I sorted it out to find some of my favorites.

    Black Friday is now only two days away! Though, many retails and suppliers of goods and services have decided to offer discounts ahead of the big day. Steam is currently offering some pretty big discounts on lots of my favorite games. So in case you are yet to try any of these reduced-price games, now is the time.

    Don’t Starve Together

    Dont Starve Together

    The “Don’t Starve” series of games are currently being offered at a substantial discount. Specifically, Don’t Starve Together is now only $5.99, down from $14.99. Don’t Starve Together is the multiplayer expansion for the Uber-popular game franchise, Don’t Starve. Don’t Starve is an open-world, 2D sandbox survival game with procedurally generated maps and kooky graphics. See Don’t Starve Together on Steam. Other Don’t Starve items include Shipwrecked and Reign of Giants DLC.

    Lot’s of LEGO Games

    LEGO has been great at taking some of the world’s biggest gaming franchises and making them cute and silly. Now, you can try some of these charming remakes at greatly reduced price. LEGO Worlds is currently offered at 50% of it’s original cost, making it now only $14.99. Other games on sale include Star Wars, Marvel, Harry Potter and Jurassic Park, all LEGO-fied.

    Spyro Reignited Trilogy + Crash Bandicoot

    Spyro Reignited Trilogy

    Not too long ago, we were given the gift of the remakes of the first three installments of the Spyro series. Our favorite rambunctious dragon is back with an all new shiny coat of paint. The trilogy of games is currently available for only $31.99, which is 20% off. If you purchase this trilogy with the Crash Bandicoot trilogy, you get a total of 40% off. That’s six different remastered games for $47.82!

    Wanderlust Travel Stories

    Wanderlust Travel Stories is a game about traveling, but it offers a lot more than just that, it is essentially a life simulation game about choices. The game is on sale for $9.99, which is half of the original price. It is a relaxing game about exploring the world, and seeing where sim-life takes you.


    Re:Legend is on sale once again. This time the price tag has dropped by 20%, making it currently $15.99. Re:Legend is an adorable adventure game that features many fun creatures and exciting quests. It is a great game that is certainly worth the pice tag.

    These are just some of my picks from Steam’s huge sale. Be sure to check it out for yourself, and let me know if you find any more gems on sale!

    A few of my favorite games are currently discounted in the Nintendo eShop.

    The Nintendo eShop is definitely my preferred way to purchase games. Many of my favorite titles are all available at the click of a button. Luckily, right now some of those titles, like My Time At Portia, are currently available at a discount. The sale is sponsored by Team17, so all games discounted are by this amazing game publisher.

    Games in eShop sale!

    My Time Portia is wonderfully beautiful life sim that I just can’t get enough of. Since being ported to the Switch, My Time At Portia has gone through some major updates to make it currently one of the best games on the console (personal opinion). My Time at Portia has been marked down by 30%, making it now only $20.99. You can access that discount right now at the Nintendo eShop.

    Nintendo eShop Sale

    Overcooked 2 is an exciting and whimsical party puzzle game. The object of the game is to prepare increasingly intricate dishes in a super hectic kitchen. The best cooperation with your staff will yield the best results. Now, you can try it for yourself at a discount of 30%, making it only $17.49. Again, just visit the Nintendo eShop for access to that discount.

    With the Kickstarter campaign of Potion Paws going live last Thursday, September 5th, 2019, the developers at Bitten Toast Games decided to throw an online community event within the multiplayer mode of Garden Paws. You may remember our review of the most adorable simulation RPG here and how we haven’t yet had the chance to try out the online feature of the game. Since it has been one of our favorites this year, we backed its spookier potion-making counterpart Potion Paws and took part in the giveaways and party! Besides, if you own both games on Steam, you’ll get crossover items in Creative Mode.

    Online Multiplayer and Creative Mode

    When you play online in Garden Paws, you have the choice to create a server room and allow up to 4 players into your world. They can help you farm, fight monsters in the dungeon, and pretty much anything else you can do in single-player campaign. This is also a particularly useful way to share rare items. Creative Mode is basically a sandbox mode where you already have access to every single item the game has to offer with some added bonuses which include: a jetpack and magic carpet to fly around, the lawnmower from the Summer games festival, confetti canon, and more! If you’re looking for players to join you can always check out the awesome community of Garden Paws on the official Discord channel here.

    Garden Paws Online Community Event

    The developers Dan and Kristina are frequently live-streaming on Twitch showcasing gameplay, accepting requests from followers while they continue to add new items and features to the game, and occasionally put on a “creative challenge” out to the community. Meaning, they tell you the theme and you can use the tools and items at your disposal to build and paint anything you can imagine! As mentioned above, to celebrate the Kickstarter launch of Potion Paws, Kristina opened a Dev Server allowing up to 32 people to join and create something carnival themed. You can catch the full 8-hour stream on Twitch here, or see below for our particular experience!

    Photo Gallery of Online Party

    Since the theme was “carnival”, fellow tater Joelle (that’s me!) decided to join the fun and created her own Balloon Shop! In Garden Paws you can either have your character hold balloons in their hands while running around, or place them anywhere for decoration. As seen in the screenshots below, you can build foundations, fences, paths and place furniture, and then you can paint them with solid colors or patterns. There are even letters of the alphabet to use! I gave anyone who walked up to my booth a balloon because I was so proud of my contribution to this event.

    Next up we took a look at Kristina’s (the dev) half-built Ferris-wheel using wood pieces and cabana benches. We all took the available seating for a wonderful photo-op overlooking the sea and islands.

    Here we have a wonderfully creative way to build a merry-go-round using in-game farm animals and pets! The details here must have taken quite a long time! Everyone hopped on for a ride! I chose the glittering rare unicorn because I could; I got there first.

    There were 3 major attractions that actually turned into little mini-games for all to try out. Someone took garden hedges and created quite the challenging maze, another created a huge 3-story glass house maze, and finally at the tallest point on the island you could glide through some hoops and bounce off of trampolines at the bottom. It took me a while to complete the glass house maze but I had some excellent cheerleaders by my side!

    During Creative Mode, you still go through the day/night cycle so that all of your hard work saves at the end of the day. Every time we start the day, we end up together in a specific location which lead to shenanigans. This area of the gallery contains immature screenshots because, well, there exists a fart mechanic. “Look Ma! I’m farting on Twitch TV!”

    We redeemed ourselves afterward by celebrating with many fireworks and confetti! This is what happens when you can place as many fireworks as you want before lighting them and being able to equip a confetti canon that you can fire off to your hearts content!

    Here are a few other buildings created by the community, including a floating deck perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view. No worries about falling, we’re all wearing jetpacks. We’d also really like to know who built that boat from scratch and how!

    After a long day of partying, we all relaxed inside a forest sanctuary built by placing quite a few trees to form walls. I have my pet deer with me and I’m roasting some marshmallows by the fire.

    I had a really fun experience with the online multiplayer of Garden Paws and would like to thank everyone that joined this party! Hopefully this brings even more players to the game and to this amazing community full of really great people. If you have any extra screenshots of this event, please feel free to share them with us on social media or comment/tag if you see your character. If you’re just starting out, you can check out some of our Garden Paws tips for beginners here.

    Congratulations to Serbz on winning this awesome Giveaway, and a big thanks to all those that participated.

    A little something to help tide-over one lucky Animal Crossing fan?

    Seeing as how we were all recently given sad news in regards to the release date of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we thought we might help ease the pain for at least one AC:NH fan. We have decided to share a few items that we have come across in our travels, you know, from buried treasures and what-not. Our loot stash has become quite expansive, and we feel that it would behoove us to relinquish these goodies upon this loving community!

    What’s this all about?

    Nothing says “I live and breathe Animal Crossing” quite like exclusive and rare AC-themed collectibles. You’ll wonder how you even lived this long without a Tom Nook New Leaf Plush pillow! Such priceless gems to behold, and now they are truly within your grasp.

    Tom Nook New Leaf Pillow

    As you all know by now, the best loot comes at a certain price! In most cases, that price is to complete a set of goals or tasks, with foes hindering your process along the way. This is one of those cases. However, you should not consider the other treasure hunters to be your foe, but instead a kin seeking the same gleaming horizon.

    How it’s gonna go down!

    Given the amount, as well as the grandiose manner, of the items on hand, we have decided that the best way to proceed is to set everyone on a quest with some pretty easy goals. No boss battles here. Aside from simply spreading the word to all those who would hear, we do intend to hold jousts and archery competitions. Just kidding.

    Instead, our competitive spirits will be evoked in a more friendly manner. For those of you that are new to myPotatoGames, you have just as much chance to reap some benefits as our die hard fans (you know who you are). All one must do is follow us on the major social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and earn 50 Tater Tots between August 4th and August 20th.


    Animal Crossing Sticker Book

    We have quite a few wonderful items to share with our adoring (and adorable) fans! To kick things off, we have two Tom Nook amiibo’s! Gain access to all sorts of Tom Nook content with your own special Nook collectible amiibo.  As if that wasn’t enough, we have one Isabelle and one Digby amiibo to throw into the pot.

    Tom Nook Amiibo

    We also currently possess an adorable Timmy and Tommy ceramic plate, measuring about four inches in diameter. This ones a great accent to any AC themed tea parties! Also to be given away is our 800 ct. Animal Crossing Sticker Book! Enough sticky goodness to turn all your baubles and do-dads into Animal Crossing fan art! Finally, we have a couple of Animal Crossing themed hand-towels, depicting K.K. Slider. And for the big finish, we have the most adorable Tom Nook New Leaf Plush pillow.

    Towels and Plates Animal Crossing

    The winner will be selected at random and notified after the giveaway is completed. Best of luck to everyone!

    myPotatoGames is a project created out of love for indie and wholesome games. We feel that a lot of big video game news websites are too “cool” to be covering the games we love so much. We create a hub for games like Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley, Cat Quest, Ooblets, Minekos Night Market, and so many other games that often don’t get the spotlight they deserve.

    While this project is mainly founded on the passion and love for casual video games. We still have server costs to cover and potatoes to fry. Joining our Patreon and expressing your support for what we do is not only extremely humbling, but it will also help us keep doing what we do best – connecting players with wholesome, cute and lovely video games and supporting the indie community.

    If you love what we do, and you decide to support us, then we want to make sure your contributions is well appreciated. We will continue to cover the world of indie and wholesome games for you and for all of us and expand our creative content along the way!

    much love,
    Henry the Potato and the myPotatoGames Team
