Right on cue, indie developer Qubic is having its 16th-anniversary sale, in which . That’s a lot of gameplay for just a few dollars.
Here’s how it works: You need to own eitheror , Qubics’ two flagship games. Don’t own either one? No problem: Right now you can get them for a dollar each.
Once you have either (or both) of these games in your Nintendo Switch account, go shopping at . There, you’ll find 16 games marked down anywhere from 90% to 95% off, so each game is selling for just 49 cents.
