Dear Esther, Plants vs. Zombies, and Mini Ninjas on sale

You've probably heard of the games on sale this week on Steam. Take your pick of Dear Esther, Plants vs. Zombies GOTY Edition, and Mini Ninjas.

The indie adventure game Dear Esther is 50% off at $4.99 for nearly two more days. Plants vs. Zombies GOTY Edition from PopCap is 75% off for only $2.49 … making me wonder if there's any gamer left on the planet who hasn't played the successful tower defense game.

Finally, Mini Ninjas is also discounted by 75% for a price of $3.74, but the deal is going fast, with only 16 hours remaining.

Several signs are pointing to a sequel to IO Interactive's Mini Ninjas, so now might be the time to catch up with the original game.
