The Game Festival offers Game Awards demos for 48 hours

Fancy a demo or two?

The Game Festival is a new initiative launched by The Game Awards that will offer a curated selection of demos for new games that will feature in the awards program.

“Now feels like the right time to take the next step with The Game Festival, a completely digital approach to the consumer event space,” The Game Awards’ Geoff Keighley said. “Let’s face it: Not everyone can attend a physical trade show or consumer event. The Game Festival is designed from the ground-up as an event without barriers, extending the benefits of a physical event to the global gaming community that watches The Game Awards.”

The following titles will offer 48-hour demos on Steam, timed around The Game Awards itself:

  • System Shock (Nightdive Studios)
  • Eastward (Pixpil/Chucklefish)
  • Spiritfarer (Thunder Lotus)
  • Moving Out (SMG Studio/Devm Games/Team17)
  • Röki (Polygon Treehouse/United Label)
  • Chicory (Greg Lobanov)
  • Wooden Nickel (Brain&Brain)
  • Haven (The Game Bakers)
  • Heavenly Bodies (2pt Interactive)
  • Acid Knife (Powerhoof)
  • The Drifter (Powerhoof)
  • Carrion (Phobia/Devolver)
  • Skatebird (Glass Bottom Games)

The Game Awards will be livestreamed from Los Angeles, California from 12.30pm AEDT on 13 December. You can check out a full list on nominees here. Stevivor is a member of the voting jury.
