PSA: The Steam Game Festival – Summer Edition Starts Today

The Steam Game Festival - Summer Edition kicks off today with demos for upcoming games like Fights in Tight Spaces, Windjammers 2, and more.

In case you’d forgotten, here’s a friendly reminder that the Steam Game Festival kicks off its Summer Edition later today. This one-week event gives everyone access to time-limited demos for some of the best upcoming games. Steam ran a similar event back at The Game Awards in 2019, and it was a ton of fun. Check it out.

We don’t yet have the full list of demos coming to the Steam Game Festival. However, a few neat ones were announced over the past few days. Most importantly, Windjammers 2 is making an appearance. If you’ve never played Windjammers, please do yourself a favor and check out Dotemu’s sequel.

Another great-looking game to keep an eye on is Fights in Tight Spaces. Visually, it will remind you of SUPERHOT, but it uses turn-based deckbuilding for its gameplay. Man, that game looks rad.

Inkle, the devs behind 80 Days and Heaven’s Vault is also bringing their turn-based RPG Pendragon to the event. We’re also getting demos for Genesis Noir, The Iron Oath, and Monster Crown. Plus, tons more that haven’t been announced.

Outside of the demos, Steam is also promising some developer chats and live streams. It’s not completely clear what form this will take. That said, I would assume devs will stream their demos alongside the event and maybe take part in some interviews. We’ll know more soon.

The Steam Game Festival – Summer Edition officially kicks off at 10 AM PST today and runs through June 22. If you’re looking to get that E3-like feeling off actually getting hands-on with some of the best upcoming titles, this is your chance. If The Game Awards lineup is anything to go on, this is going to be something you don’t want to miss.
