The second Games Germany Steam Sale continued the success of the first one.
Until June 29, 2023, more than 215 games „Made in Germany“ could be purchased on the platform at a reduced price. Among them are a large number of well-known games and studios. Some of the winners of the German Computer Game Award and the German Developer Award will be represented at the Games Germany Steam event. Among others, „Chained Echoes“ by Matthias Linda, „Everspace 2“ by ROCKFISH Games, „Anno 1800“ by Ubisoft Mainz, „Hunt: Showdown“ by Crytek, „Dorfromantik“ by Toukana Interactive and „Signalis“ by rose-engine.
The Steam Sale was initiated and organized by Games Germany, the association of German games promotion and network institutions. The goal of Games Germany is to present the great variety of German games on the online distribution platform Steam to users worldwide and to support German studios in the distribution of their games. Major German publishers such as Crytek, Deck13 Interactive GmbH, Daedalic Entertainment, Assemble Entertainment and THQ Nordic are also making their titles available for the „Made in Germany“ sale starting June 22.
According to the manufacturer, Steam has over 69 million active users every day. Participation in this sale event offers developers the chance to expand the international reach of their games and increase their name recognition.
After last year’s great success, Games Germany will bring back a “Made in Germany” Steam Sale this summer! Therefore, we are looking for games from German developers to celebrate their creativity.
The Sale is set for the end of June 2023. We want to showcase the vast variety of games made in Germany, so don’t hesitate to apply as long as you are a studio or a publisher with a head office in Germany.
To participate in this Steam event, please fill out this form by May 12, 2023.
To guarantee a certain quality, the Steam reviews of the submitted games should be at least mostly positive (in individual cases, or if your game is reviewed positively by Steam users but doesn’t have enough reviews to generate a user rating, an exception can be made to this rule).
Each developer is allowed to submit 2 items in total (you’re free to choose if you want to feature already released or upcoming games to generate Wishlist entries; item can refer to your game or bundle). Publishers are allowed to submit more than 2 items, as long as they are developed by different devs with a head office in Germany.
Please note: It will not be possible to consider all submissions.
