Weekend PC Download Deals for Sept. 29: Cocoon launch discount

The latest from one of the minds behind LIMBO and INSIDE has arrived with a discount in tow.


The fall season is here and there are a lot of games to check out, including some potential heavy hitters that are flying under the radar. One of those under-the-radar releases is the latest from Annapurna Interactive. Everything leading up to its release seemed to point to Cocoon being a potential top indie game for 2023. It's the latest from the lead gameplay designer of LIMBO and INSIDE and, having played a little bit of it myself, it's an imaginative piece of work. It's totally worth experiencing and there's a limited-time launch discount on the table right now from Steam, the Humble Store, Green Man Gaming, and Fanatical.

Elsewhere, the Steam SHMUP Fest is underway, celebrating the best of bullet hells and shoot 'em ups. The Humble Store and Epic Games Store are still offering the best from Square Enix. Green Man Gaming is holding an exciting Golden Week sale. Gamersgate has the best from Capcom. And GOG.com is still celebrating its 15th Anniversary Sale.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
