Steam Next Fest kicks off with over 600 developer demos and live streams

The semester Steam NextFest is now underway, with gameplay livestreams, developer chats, tutorials and, most importantly, playable demos for hundreds of upcoming games.

The Steam Next Fest is a great way to hang out with unreleased games you’ve been keeping an eye on, as well as things you’ve never seen before or wouldn’t consider spending money without. a test drive beforehand. The only potential downside – and there really isn’t much to complain about – is that there are so many demos and so little time.

There are a total of 628 demos in this round of Next Fest, according to Valve, which means you’re going to need to average 89.7 demos per day. everyday, if you want to see them all. Valve expects a few more to arrive as Next Fest rolls out, so might as well call it a 90-a-day dish just to make sure nothing gets left out.

If that sounds a little daunting, here are a few that I think would be good starting points:

Remember that this is only a small part of everything out there – you can explore all the demos and get a full event schedule online, at the Next Steam Festival Page. We’re planning a deeper dive into some of our favorites for later this week – in the meantime, if you have any personal picks, feel free to share them with us in the comments. The Steam Next Fest runs until February 28.
