Steam Summer Sale is upon us once more, and this time, we meet this sketchy guy named Clorthax who claims that he came from the future. He also says that he smuggled the ten best games from the future back into our time in the hopes of profiting from them big time. In exchange for helping him in this brilliant-yet-scummy plan, Clorthax will give players some special Party Badges for our collection, as well as some other goodies.
In this guide, we will talk about Clorthax’s Party Badge riddles and how to solve them.
How to play Clorthax’s Riddles
Clorthax has hidden the ten games along with the other games that are on sale. These games, as you may have already surmised, are fictional games that are made to look like the usual games that we see in the Steam store. There is a subtle difference that would help tell that it’s one of the hidden games: the price appears as CL.0R TH.4X.
In order to start collecting Clorthax’s Party Badges, go to the Steam store and click on the banner that says “FREE FUN THIS WAY”. It will then lead you to another page where Clorthax will greet you and tell you about his plan. You can then click on the “JUMP TO CURRENT CLUE” button to see the latest clue for the game.
You will then have to search for the game within the store, and luckily we have the clues to narrow down our search. Once you find the game, you’ll then be rewarded with stuff for your Steam account and your Party Badge will also get upgraded.
We’ll have the games’ names listed out on this guide here, but it appears that you cannot simply search for them through the search bar. So, we have also included the steps on how to find them in the store.
Clorthax’s Game #1: Guitar Billionaire
The first clue goes:
“You’ll find riches in rhythm, and fame in six strings, but beware the tax burden axe mastery brings.”
This clue leads to the game called Guitar Billionaire which can be found in the Rhythm section of the store or you can click on the “GO FIND IT” button below the clue. Thise game can be found in any category after that as the games appear to be tagged in a lot of random subcategories; we first found it under Co-Op, but then we tried to find it again and it appeared under 4+ Player. You’ll just have to scroll through the categories and the game should appear. Take note of the pricing as it will not appear as a normal currency.
Clorthax’s Game #2: Custard Castle Small Claims Court
The second clue goes:
“You’ve settled a city and put down your roots, but now can you settle small legal disputes?”
This clue leads to the game called Custard Castle Small Claims Court which can be found in the City & Settlement Builders section. Any category can be selected, and it appears more often under the Resource Management subcategory.
