It was a dark and stormy night. The clock struck 13, each tolling bell accompanied by a crack of lightning and rolling thunder that shook the window panes and caused distant hounds to howl into the night.
A whisper of wind shakes the curtains as the light flickers in your dimly lit study. Under the door a note slides. You bend to pick it up and unfold the message, your hand shaking as you do so.
On the other side of the scrawled note, you find something even more sinister. An FAQ! It reads:
What’s the Halloween Sale?
Well it’s a sale, that’s happening to celebrate Halloween! We’re offering huge savings on the spookiest games around.
What games are on sale?
Only the spookiest, the most scary, the most terrifying games are on sale in our Halloween Sale. Games that’ll turn your blood into ice, that’ll send shivers down your back, that’ll make you go ‘that’s quite scary’.

Where do I get these spooky deals?
Fear not, adventurous purchaser, you can go straight here to check out the scary games we are stocking at prices that are so low you’ll think we’ve been replaced by deal hunting shapeshifters! (This hasn’t happened.)
(Or has it????)
Can I get more money off?
Actually yes! By signing into our VIP (Very Important Poltergeist) page, you can claim a code that’ll give you an EXTRA 15% off! So our terrifying deals become EVEN MORE TERRIFYING!
Are your games haunted?
We cannot guarantee that our products are ghost-free. We also cannot guarantee ghosts. Basically, we give you games, any ghosts you might encounter you’ll have to deal with by yourself.
With a shudder, you fold the note closed again and thrust it firmly under your door. The night holds no terrors for you now that you have seen the Green Man Gaming Halloween Sale. It’s time to head out and kick zombie arse. In video games anyway.
