The latest Steam Next Fest is set to kick off on 13 June 2022, with a number of exciting new game demos and showcases available for everyone to jump in with throughout the week-long celebration. Steam Next Fest is the perfect time to hop into limited time indie demos, and to find your next favourite gem amongst a pile of many.

There are already a number of games confirmed to appear during the show, including some upcoming Australian-made games – each of which will be well worth checking out while you can. In addition to demos, there’s typically a range of games on sale during Next Fest – so keep an eye on proceedings.

Demos and sales are typically taken offline immediately after Next Fest, so you’ll need to get in quick.
