Advent Rising 90 % during June’s Steam Sale
About this game:
Extremely enjoyable third-person action-adventure game, involving space, alien worlds, super powers and a great soundtrack. Kinda like a Star Wars Jedi Knight game, but without the lightsaber. Shame it didn’t sell well, the worst thing about the game is that it ends with a cliffhanger and we will never see how it continues.
Heck, I woulnd’t be too surprised if the devs From Mass Effect used this title as their inspiration, many things about it remind me of this newer franchise.
Here’s the original story line…
A common legend pervades the galaxy-that of a powerful, highly intelligent ancient race that will one day deliver the universe. They are known as Humans.
Some claim they are the messiah. Others believe they exist only in the imaginations of the young. The Seekers, however, know Humans exist and believe they are an enemy that must be destroyed. Under the guise of benevolent explorers, Seekers comb the universe and eradicate any Human colonies they find. Until now.
Working with award-winning science fiction author Orson Scott Card, GlyphX Games has created a gripping storyline that will thrust gamers into an incredible intergalactic saga.
The Advent of Humanity Begins…

How Do Steam Sales Work, why are games so cheap
To this day I wonder exactly how Steam and game manufacturers can afford such discounts during sales times. Getting most of the games you love with over 80% discount does almost seem like a miracle.
I suppose, at its core, the main difference exists in the way we are distributing and consuming video games. I don’t have to tell you how the rise of digital currency like Xbox Live & and PSN Plus have changed the way we buy and play video games.
Though some still prefer to have the physical copies of their preferred games, most people are happily choosing to buy digital codes and digital CD keys.
Traditional game sales needed manufacturing, packaging, shipping, stocking, suffer from damage etc. It’s basically a much more complex procedure that you might imagine, it has a certain amount of costs that are indeed unavoidable.
With digital sales of games you’ve got server costs (with the size of Steam and it’s distribution all over the glove, that’s not a tiny amount), maintenance of the servers, maintenance of the products (adding patching, etc), setting it so they game installs via steam, bandwidth costs to pump the stuff out… so yea while it’s still a lot less than traditional physical games it also implies certain costs.
Still, you have to really thank the way we are moving away from physical games towards a digital landscape where games are sold, downloaded and stored in digital outlets for the price drop in these titles. None of these Steam sales could have been possible in older times.
So for at leats that we thank you oh Digital! Do let us know which games you are looking forward to purchase! We will be updating you all with our choices 🙂
