Ready to try more game demos? Now is your chance once again as Steam Next Fest - October 2022 Edition is live.
As usual, developers will also be doing various livestreams, although some will likely be pre-recorded. You can see the full list of upcoming streaming events during Next Fest at this link. There's a lot! With the event live now, you have until October 10th at 5PM UTC to get playing before everything vanishes (although some devs let their demo stick around).
Here's the event trailer:
As for some suggestions on what to try? Well, these are top of my list and I think you'll like them:
- Cassette Beasts - Collect awesome monsters to use during turn-based battles in this open-world RPG. Combine any two monster forms using Cassette Beasts’ Fusion System to create unique and powerful new ones!
- Void Scrappers - Blast hordes of alien ships into junk. Collect the scrap to upgrade your ship into an unstoppable force of destruction. Unlock new characters and weapons and upgrade your stats between runs.
