It's high summer in the United States, and it's the perfect time to go outside and do stuff. Unless you live in the south, or the midwest, or the southwest, or parts of California, or the northeast, or any major city where there's more concrete than grass. For those places it's the perfect time to sit inside, hide from 100+ degree temperatures, and curse your air conditioning bill. While you're doing all that non-exercising and non-self-actualizing, here are some games you can pick up on the cheap.

Google has put a handful of popular titles on sale so far, most of them now priced at a dollar or less. There doesn't seem to be a central sale page of this promotion, at least not yet - we've already seen the Game of Thrones adventure series by TellTale discounted to 60¢, and a bunch of SNK games have been priced at a dollar as well (which Ryan posted in his last roundup). Here's a list of the deals we've found or been tipped so far:

Monument Valley - $0.99 from $4.99

Republique - $0.99 from $4.99

Botanicula - $0.95 from $4.99

FOTONICA - $0.89 from $2.99

There also seems to be a few popular games with discounted in-app purchases, and of course plenty of developers and publishers are putting on their own sales without prompting from Google. If you see any notable games we've missed, specifically any that have been updated with "Google Play summer sale" in the app description, let us know in the comments.
