The year of the dog is approaching, and people around the globe are gearing up to celebrate the Chinese New Year in all sorts of ways. The gaming industry is no exception, and Steam is ringing in the Lunar New Year with a massive sale on thousands of games, many appropriately dog-themed. Steam’s Lunar New Year Sale is live now and runs until February 19th.
If you’re overwhelmed by the choices in this sale, fear not. We’re here to give you our top picks of both pupper-themed games and the array of other titles you can grab for great prices. As far as games featuring dogs go, you can’t go wrong with any of the following:
Fallout 4 (50% off at $14.99) – A post-apocalyptic open-world RPG with plenty to explore, collect, and craft, all with the help of your loyal pupper companion Dogmeat.
Okami HD (30% off at $13.99) – This critically acclaimed masterpiece with beautiful Sumi-e ink art style actually lets you play as a dog, who is actually the Shinto sun goddess.
Undertale (50% off at $4.99) – This indie gem puts players in the underground world of monsters and tasks them with escaping, and the only way out is through. You don’t even have to kill any of the enemies you encounter thanks to the unique battle system.
Watch Dogs 2 (66% off at $20.39) – Okay, you got us. This one just has “dogs” in the title; it isn’t actually about watching dogs. You can run into some puppers, however, as you team up with Dedsec, a notorious group of hackers, to execute the biggest hack in history.
