Godot games in the Steam Next Fest (October 2021)

By: Ilaria Cislaghi 5 October 2021

Hello Godotters!

As the days passes and the team and contributors work hard to deliver Godot 4.x and Godot 3.4, we want to shine a light on the amazing projects that are made using Godot.

Our project manager Rémi already collected all of them in a Twitter thread. The list of games is reproduced below.

The Steam Next Fest

Steam organises a recurring event called the Steam Next Fest:

Steam Next Fest is a multi-day celebration where fans can try out demos, chat with developers, watch livestreams, and learn about upcoming games on Steam. For developers, Steam Next Fest is an opportunity to get early feedback from players and build an audience for a future launch on Steam.

You have until the 7th of October 2021 @ 17:00 UTC to test the games!

The Zone: Stalker Stories by @IlluminatedGms is a story-rich card battler in a post-apocalyptic setting – what's not to love‽

The Zone: Stalker Stories


Martial Law

Martial Law by @GroupFixer tells a story about Poland in the communist era, family, and making choices – all with gorgeous pixel art.

Martial Law


Ex-Zodiac

Ex-Zodiac by @BenHickling bears a strong similarity to a certain furry on-rails shooter, but we're all longing to scratch this SNES itch so it's very welcome! And it definitely goes beyond that inspiration to be its own very modern arcade shooter.

Ex-Zodiac


Seedlings

Bardsley Creative's @Seedlings_Game is probably the game featuring the most realistic nature graphics you've seen in a while - as they're all derived from photos of the beautiful Aotearoa New Zealand Bird.

Seedlings


RUN: The World In-Between

Run, boy, run! Running is a victory. It probably doesn't include Woodkid songs, but @RunTheVideoGame 's soundtrack seems pretty fitting anyway for this fast-paced "die and retry" runner with a beautiful art direction!

RUN: The World In-Between


Birb Café

Birb Café by @birbgames has you, a birb, make coffee for furry and feathery customers (who would have guessed)! It's a visual novel with branching paths and multiple endings. We don't know yet if it features skating birbs, we'll see!

《文字遊戲》(Word game)

It's only in Chinese for now, but @Team9Games'《文字遊戲》 is looking pretty sweet! If we understand correctly, its prequel is "Word Game: Episode 0", which is one of the most popular Godot-made games on Steam (2500 reviews, 99% positive!).

《文字遊戲》


Dark Crypt

Dark Crypt by @DaisyGames3 is a puzzle game with a horror setting, well on topic for the spooky season!
