Steam Next Fest

Steam Next Fest is now live and will be so until February 28, 2022. The Next Fest features hundreds of new demons and a bunch of live streams from devs and is a great chance for players to try out new, innovative upcoming games.

From elaborate RPGs to Farming Sims, the Steam Next Fest is pretty diverse in its offering, providing immense value to the gamers. To try these games, players will need a Steam account and the Steam launcher.

Once players have both an account and the launcher, head to the sales page (Next Fest) and go through the list of games to try out games that look interesting to you. By selecting the ‘Install Demo’ option, the demo will be added to the player’s Library and it will begin downloading automatically.

Indie games have always been at the forefront of innovation when it comes to game design, art style, and storytelling and the Next Fest is one of the best sales promotions that Steam runs. It offers value to both the players as well as the developers of the games, allowing them to bring newer audiences to their game.

All the demos in the Next Fest are free and will not require any purchase from the player. The promotion will be live only for 7 days and because these games aren’t necessarily big in terms of storage space requirements, players should try as many games as they can.

I possess the dexterity of a toddler when it comes to fighting games, but the confidence of a hundred Jay-Z's. Absolutely love narrative-driven games - with a particular obsession with indie side scrollers and retrowave scores. Currently playing: Disco Elysium for probably 5th time in the last 6 months.
