If you’ve never played a Spiderweb game before, now’s a great time to get yourself acquainted. It’s unclear how long this sale will last, however, so grab it while you can!
Basically, these games are big, enjoyable adventures along the lines of the latter Ultima games. They offer up dozens of hours of content, extremely open-ended gameplay, and plenty of gear and customization options for the min-maxer in all of us.

Ubisoft’s popular Driver series is moving from the concrete to the waves. Driver: Speedboat Paradise lets you captain some pretty sweet-looking speedboats in races full of real water physics, ramps, and wild stunt opportunities. The surrounding narrative has something to do with organized crime, but what’s really important is learning how to perform a perfect barrel-roll while grabbing some air.
Look for Driver: Speedboat Paradise in April.

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager puts you in charge of the Space Race phenomenon that swallowed up the ’50s and ’60s. Your aim is to land on Luna, either as a member of NASA or the Soviet Space Agency. According to 148Apps, Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager is packed with content, but it’s on the slow side.
[Y]our sense of enjoyment is mostly going to come down to how much you’re excited by space. Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager isn’t a great management game but it does offer a theme that few other titles can provide. For that reason alone, it might just about be worth that asking price.
