Steam “Festival” demos (active until Feb 9)
« on: February 03, 2021, 02:56:08 PM »
So there is a Steam “Festival” until Feb 9 and several games now have demos.  I’ve already posted in the VAS: Ironclad and Xenonauts 2 threads.  Rather than creating a whole bunch of new threads, I’ve pursued some of the offerings and here are a few others that I found, at least to me, interesting:

The Last Shot   https://store.steampowered.com/app/1295000/The_Last_Shot/    (one for Gus)

The Commission 1920

Buccaneers!   https://store.steampowered.com/app/1148560/Buccaneers/

Slipways   https://store.steampowered.com/app/1264280/Slipways/

Post here if you come across any others.

I thought The Last Shot would've ticked your interest.  Maybe diesel-punk is not as sexy as steam-punk???  :-\

Dumb question....if you download the demos are they available to be played until you uninstall them or do they expire at some point?

I think all the Festival demos expire on Feb 9.

I do like steam and dieselpunk but I hate the style of The Last Shot. If it was built more like Highfleet I would be all over it.

Slipways is amazing. I played his Pico-8 version (still on his itch.io) it's a fun little space game

Also I noticed Geneforge is on there as well for a new installment or remaster.

But I love demos just to see what's coming. :)
