29w ago - Eyebrow Interactive Lead Designer & Programmer Tyler Glaiel has announced today that PSN puzzler Closure will be discounted to $4.99 beginning tomorrow.
Below are the details, to quote: You may remember me as the designer of Closure, a game I created with artist Jon Schubbe and musician Chris Rhyne that made its debut on PSN earlier this year.
Since release, our eerie puzzler has received quite a bit of praise from both fans and press. People love the game, and we want to make sure that everyone has a chance to play this game we spent so long working on.
So, as a thank you to all who have played it (and haven't!), and in the spirit of the season, we're launching a special Halloween sale this week! Halloween is a perfect holiday to spend checking out Closure, an eerie puzzle platformer that takes place mostly in darkness, where anything not illuminated simply ceases to exist.

Originally released in March 2011, the second installment in the multi award-winning Crysis series is a visually stunning, high-concept FPS with a gripping storyline written by sci-fi veteran Richard Morgan.
Set in the year 2023, three years after the events of Crysis, you'll find yourself in control of a Force Recon Marine named "Alcatraz", who gains ownership of the Nanosuit 2.0 from Army Delta Force officer Laurence "Prophet" Barnes, who many of you will remember from Crysis.
The violent alien race from the original game has returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind. In New York, the invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city's inhabitants.
The city's infrastructure is in ruins, while its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you've never seen it before.
