This offer is almost over at the time of posting so you’re going to need to be quick off the draw. If you are, however, you can pick up a Steam copy of 2D fighting game Skullgirls for the ridiculously low price of £1.04 / $1.50 from Bundle Stars right now. ‘Nuff said, really.

One last thing of note back at GOG.com this week, the site announced its pre-order offer for upcoming horror puzzle-platformer Little Nightmares. Pre-ordering a PC copy of the game from GOG will give you instant access to the now-BAFTA-winning Inside from PlayDead. That game alone is worth about £15, so it’s not a bad offer at all. If you were planning on picking up Little Nightmares anyway, this one is a no brainer.
