Tons Of Free Game Demos Available Now In Steam's Spring Game Festival

The Steam Game Festival, which was meant to occur during GDC, will still go ahead and offer demos of upcoming releases for folks stuck at home.


A new edition of the Steam Game Festival is here, following an earlier successful iteration during the 2019 Game Awards. The Spring Edition of the Festival just kicked off on Steam and will run until March 23 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. The event was originally meant to coincide with GDC 2020, which has been indefinitely postponed due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The Steam Game Festival: Spring Edition features demos of over 40 games that would have been featured at GDC in some capacity--far more than the 14 titles featured in the first Festival. The festival also features highlighted games from showcases like the Indie MegaBooth, The Mix, and Day of the Devs.

Now Playing: Spiritfarer Reveal Trailer | Microsoft Press Conference E3 2019

There are some promising games worth trying out here, including Spiritfarer, Garden Story, and She Dreams Elsewhere, which were some of our favorite games from PAX East 2020. You can also try out the narrative-driven Coffee Talk and the mind-bending puzzler Superliminal.

You can check out all the free demos on the Steam Game Festival page, which will be available until Monday, so you have the weekend to test out any games that look interesting. In the meantime, if you want to check out some upcoming games on PS4, there are currently demos available of two major RPG remakes--Final Fantasy VII Remake and Trials of Mana.
