Steam, the gaming distribution platform that has more registered accounts than Japan’s entire population, is having a Publisher Weekend, offering a ton of Square Enix games for up to 75% off. I went over the list of games and picked 10 titles that I think are well worth your time.

Before I present these 10 games, let me point out that the Square Enix Publisher Weekend ends on Monday, February 20, at 10AM Pacific Time. So if you see something you like, make sure to get it before that deadline.

1. Lara Croft Go



Don’t worry, Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider are on the list as well, but before I got to them I simply had to mention this turn-based puzzle game which gets you to explore the ruins of an ancient civilization, discover hidden secrets, and face deadly challenges as you uncover the myth of the Queen of Venom.

Lara Croft Go is discounted by 50%, priced at $4.99 or €4.99.


2. Life is Strange Complete Season



Life Is Strange, the game that got nominated for the "I’m Not Crying, There’s Something in My Eye" Award for the first ever Steam Awards, is available for free on Steam. But not the whole game, just the first episode. So if you’ve been waiting to get your hands on all the other episode for cheap, this is your change.

Life is Strange Complete Season, which features episodes 1 through 5, is discounted by 75%, priced at $4.99 or €4.99.


3. The Turing Test



The action in this first-person puzzle game is set on Europa, Jupiter’s moon. You play as an ISA (International Space Agency) engineer called Ava Turing and you have to uncover why the ground crew station on the moon has disappeared. Solve puzzles, explore, and uncover a "story with multiple layers of depth and conspiracy."

The Turing Test is discounted by 50%, priced at $9.99 or €9.99.

The Collector’s Edition, which includes the original soundtrack, and official art book, and the original white box prototype of The Turing Test, is discounted by 55%, priced at $13.58 or €13.58.


4. Just Cause 3



Want to wonder around a huge open world, blow things up, and cause mayhem and destruction? Just Cause 3 has you covered. Explore the Mediterranean republic of Medici, glide through the air with your wingsuit or drive around using lots of different vehicles, cause massive chains of destruction in military bases, harbours, prisons, police stations and communications facilities.

Just Cause 3 is discounted by 75%, priced at $14.99 or €12.49.

The XL Edition, which contains all 3 DLC packs included in the "Air, Land, & Sea Expansion Pass" is discounted by 75% as well, priced at $21.24 or €18.74.


5. Tomb Raider (2013)



I am actually playing this game right now, I’m pretty much halfway done, and I think that I’ll complete it this weekend. Yes, I know it’s a game from 2013, but I’ve been busy playing other games and my backlog is huge. But I digress. Getting back to 2013’s Tomb Raider, this gritty reboot is exciting and thrilling and a joy to play.

Tomb Raider is discounted by 75%, priced at $4.99 or €4.99.

The GOTY Edition, which includes all the DLC, extra outfits, and optional tombs is discounted by 75% as well, priced at $7.49 or €7.49.


6. I Am Setsuna



Released in July 2016, this is a Japanese role-playing video game that aims to pay homage to the JRPF masterpieces of yesteryear and tells the story of "a young woman of incredible inner strength and the sacrifice she must make to save the people of her land."

I Am Setsuna is discounted by 40%, priced at $23.99 or €23.99.


7. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided



Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which was nominated for Best Role-Playing Game at the Game Awards 2016, takes you to the cyberpunk-themed dystopian future of 2029, where mechanically augmented humans have been deemed outcasts and live a life of complete and total segregation from the rest of society. Play as Adam Jensen, an experienced covert operative armed with a new arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, and unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is discounted by 70%, priced at $17.99 or €14.99.

The Deluxe Edition, which includes the Season Pass, "Desperate Measures" extra in-game mission, and Covert Agent Pack, is discounted by 56%, priced at $38.08 or €35.08.


8. Hitman GO: Definitive Edition



Square Enix's GO series features three turn-based puzzle games: Deus Ex Go (which isn’t available on Steam), Lara Croft Go (which I’ve already mentioned), and Hitman Go (which was the first release in this series). Speaking of which… The critics were skeptical at first, but after Hitman Go was released, they praised the game’s looks and gameplay mechanics.

Hitman GO: Definitive Edition is discounted by 75%, priced at $1.99 or €1.99.


9. Thief



In this stealth video game from 2014 you play as Garret, a Master Thief who finds himself entangled in an uprising against the tyrannical Baron. If Garret doesn’t get involved in the upcoming revolution, the city will tear itself apart and the streets will run red with blood.

Thief is discounted by 70%, priced at $7.49 or €7.49.


10. Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration



Because I heard a lot of good things about this game, I purchased it during the Steam Winter Sale. And since then… it’s been sitting there in my games library, collecting virtual dust. But once I’m done playing Tomb Raider 2013, I’m going to jump right on it. Swear to Gaben! .

Rise of the Tomb Raider is discounted by 60%, priced at $23.99 or €19.99.
