Hahaha. I did end up buying Child of Light. It made my ten year old very very happy.

Did anyone notice that some publishers now have their own Steam store page..?
For instance...
https://lestrades.com/studio/1726/
From the top of the page, you can follow the link:
https://store.steampowered.com/developer/10tons%20Ltd
Gives you the usual studio page.
Now, games from that dev instead link to:
https://store.steampowered.com/developer/10tons
(Notice the missing " Ltd" from the URL.)
It's a whole new page, that comes along with a studio description and... an App ID.
Interesting uh..? But gonna make life even worse for database maintenance. ;)

Anyone know where I can find a list of those publishers that opened a custom page like that..?

(Yeah, posting here because I'm getting depressed. I still have no frigging idea what to buy...! Still have 71.5€ left to spend... And no I'm not sending presents to people I barely know :P)

Yeah, really lackluster sale for me...
I ended up buying less than 35€ worth of games.
Firewatch for 5€ (I'm sensing a future bundle for that... Meh.)
Arizona Rose 1 for 5€ (a picross game..?! Well I try to support small developers.)
Shiness for 9€ (same, although I've heard the studio is already dead... Still, supporting.)
Ys Seven for 15€ (because I wanted to buy a JRPG but couldn't figure out which one I'd take. It was between that and Tales of Berseria, same price... But the Tales of series has already been at humble bundle in the past, so Ys was probably safer.)
Asemblance for 2€ (not a great game AFAIK, but nice graphics and cheaper than before. Also sensing future bundling, but whatever...)
Rescue Quest Gold for 2.5€ (widely loved match-3 game... Was a bit disappointed, found it too hard as it encourages grinding.)
Rage Quest for 0.4€ (whatever...)

Wanted to buy Bayonetta-- forgot. Or Atelier Sophie... Or Star Ocean... Meh. I'll just buy in the next sale, if there is one.

What about you guys?

Big fan of RPGs and turn-based games. Plus obsessed to get all the DLCs for these type of games.
Ended up spending a lot more than I wanted. Specially because the time to play them is very limited  ^_^

Divinity 2 has a great soundtrack (RIP its composer), good choice, hope it was below 3€ though. I paid 4 for it a couple years ago.

That Baldur's gate dlc really is insulting in my opinion. It's expensive and useless... But hey, your choice of course :)

Shiness ended up being the bad choice for me-- bundled in the new humble monthly! (Which I'll update as soon as I'm back on my PC because reasons.)
Thankfully I didn't farm any cards while waiting for the bundle to be released. Now I can simply ask for a refund. Hoping that it won't lock my card drops to 2 hours again...then again it's my first refund request in over a year so I'm sure I can't be flagged just for that. :edit: Yeah, got refunded without issues, and no change to the drop rate, although weirdly Shiness didn't start dropping its first card until over half an hour after I started-- usually a game always drops its first card after 6 minutes, give or take a few.

That DLC was for the sake of completeness. Baldur's Gate is an incredible game. Can't help it sometimes.

Yeah. I would have done the same if it were a dlc for planescape torment... When you're a fan, you know what you have to do ;)
I nearly bought the Witcher 3 goty even though I already have it on GOG and registered 260 hours on it...
