Deck 13 Spotlight values and supports a strong bond between developers and their communities.The indie game market both grows and falls with its community. When sharing news about the current stage of a production, a mutual understanding unites the developers and the fans of the game. The Steam Next Festival is thus a great opportunity to bring the developers and the community of a game together and give all Steam users some insight on the works in progress. With this in mind, Deck 13 Spotlight has made a selection of games in development to take part in this year’s Steam Next Festival, offering players the chance to preview titles which are still far from the day of their release.
