1st Hint has been given: Space the Final Frontier.
Any thoughts?

Could be any one of a number of space strategy or shump games. I already own a bunch and have very little interest in them. Would be cool to see FTL, though I already own that as well. I really really hope, though highly doubt, it's Edge of Space. I've been looking at this on Desura for a couple days now and it looks great.

My serious guess though, AI War: Fleet Command.

That one I might get, though it has sooo much DLC, you end up paying twice as much for that then you do the game.

Actually I thought about Edge of Space but it has just went to Alphafunding on Desura so I don't really see it coming yet... FTL sold alot it almost became a bandwagon, I don't believe in FTL. I already own FTL and AI War. AI War... that game is just wow I really love it but I get confused the deeper I get into the game so much things to atend to and I also have all the expansions but it would be cool to have it here.

Huh, that's odd this sale finishes an hour later than I was expecting...

EDIT: Yeah, Zombies went on sale at 04:00 GMT and is finishing at 05:00 GMT, 97 hour sale!

Going to have to admit - i really enjoyed the first server .. some humans and then all the servers freaked out later on and no humans plus spawning in no-fly zone and dying completely - i am going to check out their support forums

* update - appears to be a known issue that is being researched and potentially addressed in next patch (related to ghost players that disconnect improperly)

So... Tomorrow's game will be...? 1st hint was already given "Hint 1: It's Time for Adventure!". What are your thoughts? I think I can say that we are going to get an adventure game this time that's for sure. xD

Possibly, "Adventure Time"?

or...
Adam's Venture?

Correction: Adventure Time is published by D3... not indie

Hint 2: Game starts with "The"
Maybe The Adventures of Shuggy or The Blackwell games?

The available hints are so vague that I'd rather not get my hopes up for any one game or the other. :P

@ Soli - good job !

I saw a video review on this game awhile back and am excited to play it. I like the graphics and the dialogue (from what i saw).

Review was by Josh Mattingly... his channel, indiestatik, used to be sponsored by IGM. I'm sure they had their reasons. He now has a relationship with TGS.

So... we already have 2 hints for tomorrow's game. It's an RPG and it's on Steam. Any thoughts? I don't know why but I'm guessing on To The Moon and Avernum.

way too vague. But, would be cool if it was:

Wanderlust:Rebirth ... or the latest Penny Arcade (yeah right) - but, in a perfect world - it would be one of those two

Hint 3: Control Multiple Characters
I'm going to point some of the possible chances: Nethergate Resurrection, Penny Arcade 3, Avernum Series, Avadon, Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes, Towns (I guess it has multiple controlable characters in some way lol), Legend of Grimrock, To the Moon and Krater. I've looked up on Steam and I guess it has to be one of these... Opinions?

Towns isn't a RPG :P Legend of Grimrock is a brilliant game! But I would go with Avernum or Wanderlust:Rebirth as my bet.

Maybe Defender's Quest?
