Gone Home 75% off $4.99

Metacritic Score: 86

Why buy this: This indie is more of an experience than a game. It follows Katlin a young girl who arrives home to her parent’s empty mansion on a stormy night.

The whole experience lasts only a few hours but the story is both emotional and very intriguing.

The game has proven to be a great mmo luring in millions of players for more than 30 days so subscribing may be a good idea.
