Steam Next Fest, Valve's semi-regular celebration of gaming things to come, is back for another week of developer chats, panels, and, perhaps most excitingly, "hundreds" of demos for upcoming games. With so many demos to choose from, it can be tough to know where to begin. That's why we've put together a list of a few promising places to start.

First up is The Riftbreaker, an action-packed base-building game with RPG elements and a gorgeous sci-fi setting. In this game, you play as an elite scientist and soldier who must explore a distant planet, build a base, and fend off hostile alien forces. The demo promises to give players a taste of both the exploration and combat mechanics, as well as a sneak peek at the deep skill tree players can use to customize their character.

Another standout is Sable, a visually stunning exploration game inspired by the works of French comic artist Moebius. In Sable, players take on the role of a young woman traveling across an endless desert on a hoverbike. The demo offers a large chunk of the game world to explore, with plenty of secrets to uncover and characters to meet along the way.

If you're looking for something a bit different, check out We Are The Caretakers. This unique strategy game sees players leading a team of intrepid rangers, tasked with protecting endangered wildlife from poachers in a near-future version of Earth. With a blend of turn-based combat, resource management, and base-building, We Are The Caretakers promises a deep and engaging gameplay experience. The demo offers a tutorial level as well as the chance to dive into the game's various mechanics.

Finally, if you're in the mood for something spooky, give Death Trash a try. This post-apocalyptic RPG draws inspiration from classics like Fallout and Planescape: Torment, but with a more gore-filled and unsettling aesthetic. The demo promises to show off the game's rich storytelling, customizable character progression, and real-time combat.

These are just a few of the many demos available during Steam Next Fest. Whether you're a fan of action games, exploration games, strategy games, or RPGs, there's sure to be something to pique your interest. With so much to see and play, there's no better time to be a gamer.
