Xbox’s Major Nelson has just announced this week’s Deals with Gold and Spotlight sale, which features many titles from British game developer Team 17. One of the highlights is probably Overcooked, a fun cooking simulation game that was released last year on the Xbox One. You may also take a look at the Team 17 Indie Heroes Pack (80% off), which includes popular titles such as The Escapists, Not a Hero and more.

Only four Xbox 360 titles are being discounted this week, and all of them were also developed by Team 17: these are three different Alien Breed games plus the Xbox 360 version of the strategy game The Escapists. As usual, you can find the full list of discounted titles on Major Nelson’s blog post, but we’ve added more details about our favorite deals below.
