We don’t really do storewide sales. Putting a game on sale on all platforms requires manually changing the price on

Google Play (individual app)
Google Play (omnibus app)
Apple (omnibus app + individual app if it is an older one)
Steam
Amazon (individual app)
Amazon (omnibus app)
Our website’s backend
Our omnibus app’s backend

Then changing them all back a week later for GPS, website and Amazon. I estimate it takes me 15 minutes or so to do that for each game we need to put on sale. Multiply that by …hundreds of games across HG and COG. Then changing most of them back by hand as well.

What we do do is participate in Steam sales and we have an Every Hosted Game bundle* (I think?) which will allow you to get all the Steam HG games you don’t yet own, anytime at a discount.

  • @KaiDeleon maybe you can factcheck me on that/make sure that bundle is up to date.

That’s correct to my understanding! I would say it can take more than 15 minutes per game sometimes and Steam requires more work and planning than the other platforms alone.

The HG Bundle on Steam should have every game in the lineup, but if it doesn’t folks are welcome to reply and let me know what needs to be added :smiley:

I don’t know if this will help, but if you buy them on Google Play, I recommend using Google Rewards. It’s a survey platform through Google that sends you surveys (usually anywhere from one question to ten at the most). They take anywhere from a couple seconds to a couple minutes tops. That’s what I use to buy anything on Google Play, and it’s nice because I’m not actually spending my money from a credit card.

There’s really no way you can expect to get hundreds of dollars’ worth of games without spending a few hundred. Your best bet is to keep up with new games as they come out, and then pick up what interests you from the back catalog one or two at a time. Spending $5 or $10 a week on games is probably easier to manage than spending however much it would cost to buy everything you want at once, even at sale prices. And although a store-wide sale probably isn’t going to happen, it’s worth keeping your eyes open for the sales they do have occasionally. A couple of times this year they did a sale on a particular author’s complete works. Sometimes they put a particular title on sale to tie in with a relevant holiday. It’s not unusual for a game to go on sale to celebrate a substantial update or optional bonus content release. Sometimes when a new game in a series comes out, the rest of the series will go on sale for a week. Multi-game sales tend to happen only a few times a year, but they’re definitely worth keeping your eyes open for.
