Bargin Bin: Refunct

Welcome to the Bargain Bin where I buy a game from Steam or GoG with a list price (not a sale price) of under five dollars, and then tell you about it!
I’ll give you:

  • A brief synopsis so you know what the game is,
  • If it works (from a mechanical standpoint),
  • If I was able to put a full hour into it,
  • If I’m happy I own it once I’ve played it,
  • Any closing thoughts or impressions.

If you have a suggestion for other bargain bin games I should look at, feel free to tweet us @sosimplyverygud or email us at sosimplyverygood@gmail.com and I’ll take a look!

Price: $2.99

What is it?

The Orphan Dreams is a rather macabre, at times extremely gory point and click adventure/puzzle game. You play as an orphan troubled by horrific nightmares that seem to spill into reality.

At first glance Mountain is a simulator; it simulates a mountain with weather effects and occasional random events. However, it’s only a simulator in the same way a closed terrarium is a simulator. You set it going, it does its thing, and you look at it. It keeps going in the background, and every once in a while you look over at it and say to yourself “Hey, that’s really frickin’ neato.” Continue reading Bargain Bin!: Mountain

There’s Poop in my Soup is a very simple game. You play as an anthropomorphized butt running around the outside of a building above a busy street, and you launch poop at people from above. The goal is to land as many deuces in a row as you can; on heads, in baby carriages, bouncing them off boxes, on taxi cabs, getting them under folk’s umbrellas can be particularly tricky, and yes, in a bowl of soup.
