Halloween is upon us, and we're pretty sure that many of you are just as excited as we are about this event. Soon the dead will walk the earth and the devil will be free to act as he please for one night, but we know that our offer will make you jump off of your chair too!

To celebrate Halloween ALL of our games and expansions will be 25% off, from 31st of October to the 4th of November!!
All you have to do is to put "HAPPYHALLOWEEN18" on the coupon section. We hope you'll enjoy our special offer, and that you'll take advantage of it as long as you can.

Have fun!

As far as their titles on Steam go, they have done better discounts during the big seasonal sales.

The Autumn sale is rumoured to be at the end of November, so I'd hold off buying anything Matrix/Slitherine sell on Steam until then. It's a little bit different for the non-steam games, of course.

Hmmmm.....so without going to the matrix website or to steam for confirmation I get the impression from this thread that the matrix sale is limited to steam only and then it's not really a good savings.

Apologies for the confusion, to clarify:

Matrix Games are running a 25% discount promotion for Halloween on Steam AS WELL as their own store. Obviously there are some games they haven't put on Steam, but there are plenty current favourites that are on both.

As far as the games that are on both steam and the matrix store, Slitherine have in the passed engaged in Steam's bigger seasonal sales, the next of which will be the Autumn one at the end of the month (we think). From what I've found, most games currently receiving a 25% discount that are also on Steam has had a better discount in the seasonal sales. I think one or two are no cheaper than they've ever been.

I haven't done any research on the Matrix store itself - it might be worth picking up games directly that don't have a steam version, as 25% off is still a reasonable discount. However I'm reasonably confident that anything you want to pick up that's also on Steam will have a better discount (if not, the same) come the Autumn sale.

Hope that clears things up.

Hopefully the next sale will be better....
