Steam Next Fest is a flood of demo versions of “pseudo-E3” games

June 13, 2022, 8:07 PM

The Steam Next Festival is back, and with it, the opportunity to discover the games we had the opportunity to see during the last presentations.

The event started at 7:00 p.m. Steam NextFestival, and with it the possibility of testing recently presented games. Platform users can view demo versions of titles featured during the broadcast over the past few days.

Officially, the action only started today at 7:00 p.m. Polish time, but a large part of the developers released demos of their games much earlier. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the most interesting titles. You can find the complete list on the festival website.

As always, for checking out any demo we will receive the Steam Next Festival badge, which will improve as new games are tested as part of the event. There will also be live broadcasts with the creators of the selected productions.

Steam Next Festival – selected games with demo versions:

  1. 1428: Shadows over Silesia – a Czech RPG that takes us back in time, both with the action (15th century in Silesia) and with the visual setting (a lot of edges, as befits the “low poly” style).
  2. Alaskan Truck Simulator – Polish truck simulator set in “ruthless Alaska”, which is an excuse to add survival elements.
  3. Anger Foot – FPS that takes us to Shit City (sic!) and allows you to dive into dynamic and ruthless fire during clashes with hordes of enemies.
  4. Barkhan – RTS inspired by the iconic Dune II. On the program: a fight between three different factions for control of the desert planet.
  5. Brewmaster: Beer Brewing Simulator – as the title suggests: a simulator in which we brew our own beer from scratch.
  6. Cult of the Lamb – a charming and dark roguelike, in which an “innocent” lamb creates his own cult and cleanses the world of unbelievers (read: cultists who worship “false” idols).
  7. Destroy all humans! 2 Reprobed – a remake of the second installment of the humorous series of action games in which we do not fight alien invasions, but lead our cosmic brothers to conquer the Earth.
  8. Ghost Song – sci-fi metroidvania with a female heroine and powerful bosses. Samus Aran would be proud.
  9. Gunner, HEAT, CP! – a simulator of modern combat machines, created by, as the creators themselves say, “tank nerds” for the greatest fans of armored forces and realism.
  10. LEGO Brawls – LEGO bricks meet Super Smash Bros. style team-based brawl game. or (more) MultiVersus.
  11. LEGO Bricktales – another Danish brick game, this time with dioramas and building puzzles.
  12. Metal: Hellsinger – A rhythm game, but not for those looking for soothing or fun songs. As the Unknown, we prefer the rhythm hit – or shot – with guns, sword and other hellish weapons.
  13. Midnight Fight Express – isometric beat’em up by Jakub Dzwinel. We travel through the city as a former criminal, following the trail of a drone and “accidentally” defeating innocent criminals (well, there’s only one city to take care of).
  14. Moonscars – metroidvania with a clay heroine who wants to find her creator and discover the secret of her own existence.
  15. Signalis – survival horror sci-fi in an old style with manga visuals, the creators of which clearly looked at the first episodes of the Resident Evil and Silent Hill series.
  16. Sweet Transit – co-creator isometric economic strategy Factorio. We are building our own railway empire here.
  17. The Cub – a platform game in which a lonely child crosses the Earth after the apocalypse, escaping the rich on Mars.
  18. The Last Worker – a narrative FPP adventure game with an open world that tackles the difficult question of progressive automation.
  19. Tin Hearts – VR puzzle game with toy soldiers. No, we are not fighting for dominance in the nursery, but for the survival of our subordinates, who have a self-preservation instinct comparable to that of Lemmings.
  20. WrestleQuest – almost a typical jRPG game. “Almost,” because we have a completely wrestling-saturated comedy world, and instead of saving the world, we’re wrestling with wrestling legends.
