Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition returns on June 16

By - | Views: 6,001

Ready for a bunch more demos, livestreams and more? The Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition is set to return on June 16 and Valve are looking for developers to get involved.

Just like the previous events it's a multi-day thing running from June 16 until June 22. For us players, it's a chance to try out a slice of upcoming games that might interest us, for developers it's that all important exposure that's hard to come by these days and a good way to gather feedback too.

Going by the dates of the Steam Summer Sale, it might even lead directly into the next big Steam sale too with the sale last year beginning on June 25.

For developers who want to get their demo into the Steam Game Festival they have until April 14 to register and to be eligible here's the criteria (source):

  • Have a Steamworks developer account in good standing
  • Have a game you plan to release on Steam after the event and before January, 2022. If your game is releasing after that date, you may register for a future event.
  • Set up and release a playable demo for the duration of the Steam Game Festival. You may choose to retire the demo after the festival concludes or leave the demo available
  • Have not participated with the same game in either the Winter 2021 or Autumn 2020 Steam Game Festivals.

What are you hoping to see and play during the 2021 Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition? I'm still sucked in by the Loop Hero demo which appeared during the Steam Game Festival back in February. Looking forward to seeing that release on March 4!

While I've got the feeling there's a sale or a festival going on like half of the year, I really appreciate Valve is pushing for demos! Quite a bunch of my wish list entries is coming from Steam festival demos.

The festivals are great. I wishlisted quite a few games that I probably wouldn't have even tried without blasting through a load of demos.

Hopefully they continue doing this. Buying and refunding works, sure, but it's not something you're supposed to really use for trying a game, and if you abuse it, they can and do warn you that they can remove that privilege.
