The Black Friday sales are on, and digital retailer Fanatical (opens in new tab) has plenty of discounted PC games, most of them in the form of Steam keys. In addition to the discounts, Fanatical is giving away a free game. It is, let me check my notes here, 2019 multiplayer kart racer Garfield Kart: Furious Racing.
At the moment, the sequel to Garfield Kart is sitting on one user rating of 89% positive on Steam (opens in new tab), but it’s hard to know if that’s because it’s actually better than you’d expect from a Garfield-themed racing game or if Steam users, who’ve also given it the “Cult Classic” tag, are just trolls. I was also skeptical about Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, but it turned out to be one of the best in the genre.
Since it will cost you exactly zero bucks, if you’re interested in riding around pretending to be Garfield, Jon, Odie, Nermal, Arlene, Liz, Harry, or Squeak, whoever those last two are, you’re welcome to find out for yourself too. All you have to do is sign up for the Fanatical newsletter (opens in new tab) and link your Steam and Fanatical accounts to get a free Steam key.
Meanwhile, in terms of games that cost real money to buy, Fanatical has several on sale for the lowest prices we’ve seen. Time travel adventure based on a Skyrim mod The forgotten city (opens in new tab) is available in the Digital Collector’s Edition, which comes with the collector’s DLC and soundtrack, for $17.30, or a 45% discount. PT Barnum deck builder The great American circus (opens in new tab) is available in the Ringmaster’s Edition, with DLC and “Symphony”, for $8.09, which is a 73% discount. Here are some of the other games available for their lowest prices yet.
Fanatical’s Black Friday Sale (opens in new tab) includes a “spin to win” offer that allows you to spin a prize wheel when you spend $10 or more, where one of the prizes is a Steam deck worth $700. Sale ends Wednesday, November 30 at 4pm GMT.
Other digital game retailers have also begun sales. GOG’s Black Friday Sale is offering a free copy of pixel-art metroidvania Narita Boy for a limited time, and we’ve got the best deals in the Steam Autumn Sale and went hunting for some of the Steam sales hidden gems also.
