This week, the App Store is celebrating all things indie gaming. While this means that a lot of landmark releases are slowly filtering out, including today's much anticipated Nimblebit simulator Bit City, it also signals the start of a tsunami of sales that are set to push your willpower and wallet to the limit. With some big, critically acclaimed names now only $0.99, as well as some more obscure titles receiving rare price deductions for the first time in years, there's almost certainly something for everyone in this awesome new Apple-led promotion. Here's a full list of the games on sale for this week in alphabetical order:
Bean Dreams [$0.99]
Leo's Fortune [$5.99]
Road Not Taken [$0.99]
Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon [$0.99]
Sorcery! 3 [$0.99]

While there are a lot of neat indie titles on sale, a few stand out in terms of the timing and extent of their price reductions. In particular, Apple Design Award winner 2014 Leo's Fortune [$5.99], atmospheric puzzle title Road Not Taken [$0.99], and Amanita Design's adventure epic Botanicula [$0.99] are all at their lowest prices ever at only $0.99 - if any of those three games take your fancy, now is unequivocally the best time to add them to your collection. A particular favorite of mine in the form of gravity-flipping platformer VVVVVV [$0.99] by Terry Cavanagh is on sale for the first time since August 2014, and I cannot recommend the title enough for anyone looking for some rewarding retro action.
