The BEST of Steam Next Fest June 2022

An ongoing list of the best of Steam Next Fest this Summer 2022. It's being updated, so come back for new additions/amendments.

What’s happening in June 2022? The Queen’s Jubilee/birthday? Father’s Day? The day the Earth stood still? Nope, Steam Next Fest.

Better prepared this time by not taking on any review games; I’ve ended up buying games on my wishlist, subsequently filling up my available hard drive space to download all these demos (80+ at the last count in February, but I didn’t play them all).

A different approach here is a list of recommended titles to see if they deserve a spot on your growing wishlist. Instead of this being a post about what you should have played, these demos are live (as of the 14th of June), and you can try them out for yourself.

When I do them, I’ll link my write-ups, which will probably be more relevant once the demos are taken down. No links to the list below; I ain’t got time to bleed…

The list is being added to, but there’s a fair amount that’s been downloaded and immediately deleted. That’s not necessarily because they’re shoddy titles, but some are massive files and a little bit too involved for a quickfire demo. Not that I’m being ungrateful…

Any recommendations for me? Prove you aren’t a bot and give me a shout…

If you share this, I'll love you forever (ish)
