If there are two things I love, it’s indie games and free demos. One of them is a means by which fascinating new ideas and modern reimaginings of game ideas can take shape in the public eye, and the other is free stuff! Everyone loves free stuff. If you are interested in either of these things yourself, you will be interested to know that the June 2022 Steam Next Fest is running from June 13 to June 20, with free downloadable demos of hundreds of upcoming games. If you don’t have time to go through the whole list yourself, here are some of the best Steam demos from Next Fest June 2022.
Best Steam Demos of June 2022 Next Fest
Worship of the Lamb
Who says horrors beyond our comprehension can’t be adorable? In Worship of the Lamb, assume the mantle of high priest of a cult dedicated to an ancient horror. Crusade across the lands, take down non-believers in classic roguelike combat, indoctrinating civilians to your cause. Leading a cult is not, however, synonymous with blood sacrifice and brainwashing; you also need to make sure your herd is taken care of. Loot resources on your travels to build homes and utilities for your cult to ensure they are healthy, happy, and steadfast in their belief.

Monster Prom 3: Monster Roadtrip
Beautiful Glitch’s first two Monster Prom games were random party games about being your best (or worst) you in pursuit of your supernatural crush at school and summer camp. This time it’s time to take the madness on the road. In Monster Roadtrip, hit the road with your friends, encounter all sorts of shenanigans and weird happenings on the road. Play locally or online with your friends and try to complete the journey without getting arrested or starving or having your soul stolen or… well, you get the idea.
Have you ever had like five energy drinks and felt a sudden urge to kick down a door and destroy everything behind it? Someone made a game out of it and called it anger foot. Become a vicious vigilante and take down the city’s crime syndicates with nothing but a gun and your two feet. Fight your way through levels backed by bass-heavy music and complete challenges to unlock new shoes with different abilities.

You might not know it if you don’t watch it, but wrestling is a pretty nuanced form of entertainment. It’s not just about beating up insane guys, it’s about getting the crowd excited, following the script, and also pounding insane guys. In Fight Quest, create your own wrestler and set out to become a legend in his own right. Compete against jobbers in timing-based RPG battles to become king of the ring. You may even encounter familiar faces from wrestling’s historic past.
Agent 64: Spies Never Die
You might be looking at this screenshot and thinking “wait, isn’t that just Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64?” A wise observation! And the answer is yes, more or less. Agent 64: Spies Never Die is a new game built in the distinctive style of the early days of FPS, down to that weird tilting aim. Take on the role of a legally distinct super spy and save the world from evil. Hey, if Rare doesn’t give us a new Goldeneye, that works too.
It’s pretty scary to be stuck in a new town with no discernible way out. The last thing you need is for all of the monstrous population to be out for your blood, but here we are. In a stealth horror FPS Darkwood, you’re trapped in a Victorian-era town where something has gone very, very wrong. Hide in the shadows as the locals hunt you down, sharpen your senses to stay one step ahead of them, and when the weather calls for it, pull out the cane sword and collapsible shotgun to take a stand .
Whoever discovered the secret sauce of hand-drawn graphics and Metroidvania truly deserves a medal. If you’re in the mood for another such game, you’ll appreciate the fantastic Tao styles of Nine Floors, a Metroidvania game with a combat system reminiscent of Sekiro. Explore an ancient land, fight your enemies with quick and deliberate movements and help Yi dethrone the nine rulers of the kingdom.
Demos of these games, and more, will be available for free download on Steam until June 20.
