After releasing the series, Scott made some more games like Sit N’ Survive, Chipper and Sons Lumber Co. In the process.

One of those games, “The Desolate Hope” has been freely available on Steam since May 2018. There is no certainty for how long the game will remain free on Steam. But with the praise it is receiving, you might want to grab it as quickly as you can.
