NVIDIA’s Spooky Halloween Game Sale Is Here

Halloween is almost here! In the meantime NVIDIA wants to kick off the pre-party with a sale the SHIELD Halloween Game Sale is here to help make that celebration affordable, with seven freaky NVIDIA SHIELD games offered at discounts ranging from 10 to 70 percent, October 25 through the 31st.

As you can tell from the video there’s quite the selection of games all with their own niche of Halloween elements.

The Guest (70% Off)
Sale Price: $2.99
Regular Price: $9.99

The first game on sale is The Guest, released just yesterday on NVIDIA’s GeForce Now it’s a game I have enjoyed playing so far and to break it down for you who haven’t or didn’t watch the above video it’s a reality of that haunted floor we’ve always heard about from people who say hotels are haunted and you happen to be the guest, hence the naming. To leave you must solve the mystery going on, but no hints for you you’ll have to do your own investigative work in this 80’s timeline horror.

Virginia (10% Off)
Sale Price: $8.99
Regular Price: $9.99

Second is Virginia, A small town detective game set in 1992 where you’re FBI agent Anne Tarver and along with your partner, Maria Halperin, you’re trying to figure out what happened to a young boy named Lucas Fairfax. Everyone knows he mysteriously disappeared, but if the local residents know the reason, they’re certainly not sharing. So you poke about, asking questions and piecing together clues as the number of potential culprits grows and the chance that your life will ever be the same again steadily diminishes.

Grim Fandango Remastered (66% Off)
Sale Price: $5.09
Regular Price: $14.99

Third on the list is the classic Grim Fandango Remastered. Never played it before, I’ll fill you in. When a person dies, it takes four years for his or her soul to reach its destination. Along the way, there’s plenty of opportunity for lucrative commerce. Manny Calavera, a travel agent for the Department of Death, means to take advantage of that fact. You’ll enjoy it to death!

Dead Island & Dead Island: Definitive Edition (40% Off)
Sale Price: $11.99
Regular Price: $19.99

This is one game I truly do value and poured many hours into. While not the best zombie game ever made it’s up there on my personal list. With one of the most memorable trailers of the past decade it set the bar high at the time and while not coming through 100% it’s still a good game and if you like the first one the second one is more of the same and an extension of the 1st game. The definitive edition’s features all previously released DLC, and comes at you in full high-definition. Look forward to improved graphics, game models, and a spectacular lighting system.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered (40% Off)
Sale Price: $8.99
Regular Price: $14.99

Day of the Tentacle Remastered is a game I’ve yet to play but been looking to for quite some time so I may pick it up and play it sometime this week I would hope but here’s a little background. “Dr. Fred’s mutated purple tentacle is about to take over the world, and only you can stop him! Originally released by LucasArts in 1993 as a sequel to Ron Gilbert’s ground breaking Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle is a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game in which three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world! Now, over twenty years later, Day of the Tentacle is back in a remastered edition that features all new hand-drawn, high resolution artwork, with remastered audio, music and sound effects (which the original 90s marketing blurb described as ‘zany!’). Players are able to switch back and forth between classic and remastered modes, and mix and match audio, graphics and user interface to their heart’s desire. We’ve also included a concept art browser, and recorded a commentary track with the game’s original creators Tim Schafer, Dave Grossman, Larry Ahern, Peter Chan, Peter McConnell and Clint Bajakian. Day of the Tentacle was Tim Schafer’s first game as co-project lead, and a much beloved cult classic! This special edition has been lovingly restored and remade with the care and attention that can only come from involving the game’s original creators.”
