The Game Awards have been final night time. And whereas we do love a reasonably trophy (and are unhappy The Outer Worlds didn’t take prime honors), there’s extra to the occasion than pixel pageantry. Coinciding with the large day, there’s additionally a PC “Game Festival” happening—all on Steam—that options some nice time-locked demos you may play proper now.

You’ll have till Saturday at 1 p.m. or so (ET) to check out the demos, and I advocate you clear your schedule this night. After all, that is the primary probability you’ll get to check out the revamped model of the traditional System Shock, which completely deserves a few of your time. I additionally advocate testing Carrion, which seems creepy (and enjoyable) AF.
