I haven't written a blog post in a while and the Steam Spring Sale is going on right now, so why not write a post about the games I most recommend while they're on sale! And a bonus no one wanted at the end: a list of the games I purchased during this Steam sale.

My Time at Sandrock

$39.99 $29.99

This RPG by Pathea Games is the second in the "My Time" series after their first, My Time at Portia. In this game you are a builder who arrives at the desert community of Sandrock and attempt to save the town from economic ruin, bandits, and other nefarious creatures called geeglers.

This life sim sandbox includes farming, crafting, relationships, dungeons, and more! It's by far one of my favorite farm/crafting sims and quite an improvement on their first installment of the series. The story and characters can be a little whacky, but I enjoy the whimsy of it all!

As a single player RPG, I have sunk a lot of hours into both My Time games. My Time at Sandrock also has a multiplayer function that I haven't explored at all since I don't have any friends who have the game.

My Time at Sandrock is currently 25% off now in the steam store. The first My Time at Portia game is also 80% off right now on steam for only $5.99!

Disney Dreamlight Valley

$39.99 $29.99

If you love Animal Crossing and Disney, this is the game for you! I picked up Disney Dreamlight Valley when it was still in early access and it's a very cozy life sim. Similar to Animal Crossing, a big portion of the game is about decorating which I honestly didn't get that heavily into until they introduced the weekly photo contest called DreamSnaps.

I feel like the game tends to lean heavily towards Pixar characters which I'm not that into (conspiracy hat - game graphics are similar to Pixar graphics so easier to incorporate those characters??), but they seem to add a good mix of older and newer Disney characters.

One of my favorite things about the game is the story and plotline. As someone who struggled heavily with depression and growing up, the story hit home more than I thought it would. The story has some pretty heavy moments but they include trigger warnings which is something I've never really seen in a video game before.

The game also has some additional paid content - the recent "A Rift in Time" DLC which is regularly $29.99. It also includes a weekly "paid" shop, some additional mini content packs, and events called star paths. These additional in-game "paid" features are bought using moonstones which can be purchased with real life money but you can also earn moonstones in-game by finding blue chests (~50 moonstones per day), earning through star path rewards, and through the weekly DreamSnaps challenge. I really like how they include ways to earn moonstones in-game. Because of this, I have never spent "real" money on moonstones. The only USD I have used on the game was for the game itself and the "Rift in Time" DLC.

The game also includes some multiplayer options that I haven't explored since I don't have any friends who play the game :(

Disney Dreamlight Valley is currently 25% off on steam right now. The Rift in Time DLC is also 25% off.


$19.99 $9.99

Grab your friends and let the chaos ensue in this restaurant management game! This is one of my favorite multiplayer games and although they say you can play it single-player, it's definitely more enjoyable with friends.

You cook and serve specific dishes at your restaurant for roughly 15 levels. You can then create a franchise and keep going or switch restaurant/dish styles with a rougelite style progression.

PlateUp! is currently 50% off on steam right now.

The Witcher 3: Complete Edition

$49.99 $12.49

I'd be remiss if I didn't include one of my all-time favorite games: The Witcher 3. I'm big into single-player RPGs, especially those with a medieval/fantasy setting.

The writing and stories in this open-world RPG are exceptionally done. The quests and overall story can have different endings depending on what decisions you make and it's easy to sink a lot of time diving into the different outcomes.

There is a lot of mature content and violence in the game, so it can be a little too graphic at times.

You can get The Witcher 3: Complete Edition for 75% off on Steam right now.
