Valve’s popular digital storefront is once again celebrating the Steam Game festival this year, as it has become one of its customs at this point. Thanks to this event, users will be able to know more about various PC video games that are expected to get launched on the platform.
In previous Steam Game festivals, the platform had demos for several games that were featured during the event, such as Observer: System Redux, Ghost Runner, and the System Shock remake. As such, the same treatment will be given to the games showcased during this month’s festival, which will run from February 3, 2021 through February 9, 2021.
You can expect a unique variety of gaming showcases, including playable demos that will be available for a limited time only. There will also be streams for upcoming titles, along with scheduled virtual events for each launch.
As for the playable demos, there are already several games on the list for this celebration. There’s a wide range of titles from different genres available too, from a Japanese dating sim to a PVP frisbee game. That being said, we expect that some of the biggest highlights will be Gal Gun Returns, Windjammers 2, Undying, Loop Hero, Drive Buy, and SkateBIRD, which actually got featured in 2020’s Steam Summer Game Festival.
Little Nightmares 2 is also one of the games that will be highlighted in this month’s festival. After all, the upcoming puzzle-platformer horror adventure is set to launch next week. Being a highly anticipated sequel to the first Little Nightmares game, it will still have the same gameplay mechanics as its predecessor. However, one main difference is the fact that you will no longer be playing as Six, but as a new character named Mono.
Mono is a young boy who has a paper bag over his head, and he and the previous protagonist Six team up to traverse a world full of monsters as they try to survive and reach The Black Tower.
Another game that will also be highlighted during the event is Shachibato! President, It’s Time for Battle! Maju Wars. This upcoming strategy game with an incredibly long title is based on the anime Shachibato.
As such, you will play as the president of an adventuring company, and you are tasked with the responsibility of recruiting warriors and then sending them off to fight enemies and clean out dungeons. Shachibato! President, It’s Time for Battle! Maju Wars has a free demo available right now in case you’re interested to test it out and see if it’s a game you’ll enjoy.
Asides from the demos, though, there’s a lot more you can look forward to for this month’s event. As mentioned, there will be various livestreams from different content creators, which will give you a better look at certain games on display that may have caught your interest.
From what we have seen so far, the Steam Game festival 2021 has a pretty solid display of games, and we look forward to the scheduled events that come with it.
