Steam Mystery Fest live until February 27th

By - | Views: 23,586

Another good chance to discover some new games is the Steam Mystery Fest, live now until February 27th with lots of discounts.

This event also has a big Steam Deck category filter this time too, making it that little bit easier to find the games you want if the Steam Deck is you preferred platform. However, to see Deck compatibility ratings you need to hover, and then click a button to see — not ideal. When you scroll down there's also various other filters like operating system, sub-genre and more. Not every featured title is discounted though.

Valve also made another fun trailer for the event:

The Darkside Detective games are excellent, and play really well on the Deck.
