Metroidvania: a term that gets used a lot (by me) and probably doesn’t always mean what it’s intended to mean (by me). A TON of games claim to be Metroidvanias, but what defines this genre? What makes a Metroidvania a Metroidvania?
Whelp, it’s time for you to do some research:
The “Not-A-Metroidvania” Bundle is now on Steam for $36.12 US and contains Dead Cells by Motion Twin, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition by DrinkBox Studios, Salt and Sanctuary by Ska Studios, and Sundered by Thunder Lotus Games, each PHENOMENAL games in there own right, and all indies! Each title is already discounted for Midweek Madness, and you’ll be getting an additional 20% discount on top of that.
This is a SUPER good deal in my opinion, and I’ve dumped a ton of time into Salt and Sanctuary and Dead Cells in particular, for what that is worth.
