The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Game Awards were held this week. Spoiler alert: What Remains of Edith Finch won Best Game. But to celebrate the nominees, both Steam and the Humble Store have dropped prices on some of the best games of 2017. Many of the deals are the same at both stores, so if you prefer one over the other, be sure to compare prices on the games you want. It’s also worth noting that Humble Monthly subscribers get 10% off at the Humble Store. With that out of the way, here’s what’s on sale.
You can find the full list of games in the Steam BAFTA sale here, but we’ll highlight some of the best deals below. Let’s start with the Best Game winner. What Remains of Edith Finch is on sale for $14/£10. It’s a unique story-based game that puts you in the shoes of many doomed family members related to the title character. Each vignette plays out in a different, often touching, way. There’s nothing else quite like this game.
The acclaimed Metroid-style action game Hollow Knight is on sale for $10/£7. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, which tackles mental illness in a creative way, got a slight price drop to $27/£22. And the challenging-yet-satisfying game Cuphead is on sale for $17/£13.
If you’re into narrative- and character-driven games, you have lots of options, too. Tacoma, which has you figure out what happened to the missing crew of a space station, is half off at $10/£7. Night in the Woods, a game about a girl coming home to her small hometown after dropping out of college, is $14/£10. And the prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm is on sale for $10/£7.
Many of the same games are on sale for the same or similar prices at the Humble Store. You can see the full list here, but let’s look at some of the deals that are better than the ones on Steam.

The Advanced Edition of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, which recently surpassed 30 million registered players, is on sale for $36. You can also grab Lego Worlds for half price at $15, and Star Trek: Bridge Crew for $20.
