Once again, Microsoft is starting up a daily deal promotion for the Games for Windows Marketplace, not unlike the one we saw earlier this month. It seems as if it will follow up to New Year's Day with deals, like the Countdown to 2011 deals on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Today's deal is Jewel Quest: Sleepless Star. This Bejeweled-esque puzzler is on sale today for $9.99 or £7.49, depending on your respective location. Please note that this is NOT LIVE enabled.

Follow the travails of intrepid explorer, Percy Pack, in Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star. On a quest for a jewel called the Sleepless Star, Pack discovers that the jewel has been stolen from a Native American village by an unscrupulous jewel collector! Along with Percy and a beautiful Algonquin named Yellow Feather, travel to exotic locations on two continents and overcome dangers at every turn, in an effort to recover the jewel.
Head here to purchase and begin downloading the game.

December 26th's deal was Saint's Row 2 for $7.49 or £4.99. Sorry we missed this one!
