a write-up on Steam News
recapping last month's Steam Next Fest. Word is the
attracted 8.7 million users to check out the various livestreams
and demos the fest had to offer. There's word that the number of week-long demos
the fest offered totaled 675, giving everyone 11 minutes for each, as long as no
time was wasted on sleeping or eating. In an acknowledgement of that crunch,
includes listings of the demos that received the most play and the games that
were wishlisted the most during the event. Last, but not least, is the note that
the Steam Next Fest: June
will begin on June 19th. Here's part of the recap:
February 2023 edition of Steam Next Fest is in the books, and it was another fun
week of free demos and livestreams. We host Steam Next Fest three times a year,
and each one is an opportunity for players to explore hundreds of demos of games
before they launch on Steam.
Cool numbers from February 2023 Steam Next Fest:
- 8.7 million unique visitors, the highest number yet for this event.
- 675 playable demos, which is right in line with most Next Fests.

lists from the games that participated with demos in Steam Next Fest: February
