    Steam Next Fest features 700 playable demos

    The festival runs until 22nd June, and covers "all genres," but is indie title centric.

    Indie games vs AAA games

    Indie games often or most of the time offer better value than AAA.

    I found a few that I'm watching, and a couple for which I grabbed the demos. Will hopefully try out in the next week or so.

    Re: Steam Next Fest features 700 playable demos

    I've managed to try The Immortal Mayor demo.

    Albeit not for much more than half an hour before my laptop heated up to a furnace.

    Pretty good as city builders go. It has a whiff of Banished in there.
    The world looks great, and the population just gets on with things. There's no micro managing of all the people.
    There's a tech tree to get on with and an interesting Dynasty element to it.

    It's well rounded but some text is still in Chinese so there's a bit of translation to be finished.

    Added to my wishlist

    Re: Steam Next Fest features 700 playable demos

    I have a game in this Steam Next Fest, I posted about it: https://forums.hexus.net/pc/424566-im-making-game-demo-up.html#post4294766 so I won't repeat myself here, but as you can see, with so many games in the festival, it's difficult to get airtime, especially as a solo dev with near-zero budget!
    I've tried out a few other games in the festival, and I have to say there are some great titles out there, well worth a browse!
