The pulp sci-fi comedy adventure first came out on PC, PS4, and Xbox One back in January. Here's a snippet of what GR's Austin Wood thought of the game at the time, from our official review:

"Journey to the Savage Planet is a unicorn in this day and age. It's a short game that's totally satisfying, and it's a comedy game that's actually funny. And if that wasn't enough, it also has a crafting system that isn't tedious. It caught me totally off-guard the first time that I got my hands on it, and it continued to surprise me throughout its six-hour runtime – so much so that I'm eager to play more of it for post-game exploration, and maybe again in co-op too."

If you'd rather play on PC, you're also in luck. Journey to the Savage Planet is currently 40% off (opens in new tab) as part of the Epic Games Store Mega Sale (opens in new tab), dropping the price to $17.99. With the sale's automatic, recurring $10 off coupon for games of $14.99 or more, the final price drops to $7.99.
