Steam Backtracks On Daily Deal
Today’s daily deal form Steam is a quirky, little rhythm game called Sequence. It infuses RPG elements in order to rig itself around the rhythm mechanics and features about 10 hours of story. The daily deal discount was first noted to be 75%, but apparently something went awry at the Valve office and it’s now reduced to a 50% cut.
Of course, this is nitpicking with a giant N, because the game sells at the whopping full price of $3.99/€3.99. The half price discount has descended it to a mere $1.99/€1.99 and that’s not a lot of cash. Indium Studios is an independent developer and they don’t ask for much. It’s just weird to see Steam backtrack on its discounts like that. It’s probably just an oversight. That or they’re tired of having to cater to cheapskates.
