Another year, another massive sale is now live on Steam. Let’s take a look at what Valve are doing this year and what you should be looking out for.

This time around, Valve aren’t doing any special trading cards. They’re trying something a little different! You will be entering the "Steam Grand Prix" by joining a team (go team Hare!), earning points for rewards and having a shot at winning some free games in the process. Sounds like a good bit of fun, the specific-game challenges are a nice touch.

As for what to pick up? That’s very subjective but I’ve decided to break it down into some lists for you this year to do it a little differently. All games will be ordered from highest to lowest discount at time of writing.

Indie Games - Some fun titles with Linux support from smaller developers, those who likely need that bit of extra support.


Bigger Games - Big and beautiful, featuring Linux support.


Steam Play - Games worth checking out, that work well.


Obviously there's a ton more, far more than I could ever recommend personally, those are just some games I consider to be worthy of some attention.

The sale ends on July 9th. Plenty of time, as expected the Steam store completely died when the sale went live and is still up and down even now, so picking titles has been difficult. I may add more suggestions later.

Do come back and let us know what awesome deal you pick up!

I joined team tortoise because they are always bullying it for being slow. It's time to square this up.:><:

Quoting: finaldestGRRR. I feel I was denied critical, Neeeeeeeed to know, Information.

I have dropped £60 this week on Games/DLC and now a steam sale appears.

Guess I have no option but to check out the wishlist which has 100 games on it.

Gaben, Why do you always do this to me.:)
You can refund them and buy them again.
As far as I know Valve considers buying games right before a sale as a valid refund reason.

Quoting: PatolaAs of me, I highly recommend the deep space trade sim X4: Foundations (and just ignore the bad ratings, these crybabies are all wrong).

Here we go, I already waited too long. X4: Foundations added to my library. :)
