Halo 3 player discovers every single rock in one of the game's most memorable levels is the same rock: "I can't keep this knowledge to myself anymore"

The Covenant mission in Halo 3 is one of the most memorable of the entire game, though after this fan's discovery, you may never look at it the same way again.

After releasing some of the best Metroidvanias in the business, Ori dev shows off its very different action RPG

Moon Studios is best known for Ori and the Blind Forest, a breathtakingly beautiful 2D Metroidvania that sees you tackle environmental puzzles and engage in some perilous platforming as an adorable bunny-like creature. Both it and its sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, are right up there as some of the best Metroidvanias money can buy, but despite its expertise in the genre, Moon Studios is instead cooking up something entirely different for its next game, No Rest for the Wicked.

Supernatural spaceship shooter Underspace shows admirable ambition in its Next Fest demo

I respect a game with wild ambition. Declaring your game "the spiritual successor to Freelancer" is bold and ambitious, considering how the spaceship sim is still so beloved after 20 years that our readers voted it your 16th favourite space game of all time. This ambition is wild when the tiny development team is led by someone best known for replacing Skyrim's dragons with Thomas The Tank Engine. So while I'm not much of a spaceship sort, I had to check out the demo for Underspace, which aims to combine Freelancer shoot-o-trading space action with a dash of Lovecraftian horror.

Fantasy extraction game Dungeonborne was February's most played Steam Next Fest demo

February's Steam Next Fest demo bonanza officially concluded on Monday, and Valve have now revealed the 50 most played games you all tucked into across the week-long event. Ordered by the number of unique players that spent time with them during Next Fest proper (meaning all those early demo plays from earlier in the month haven't been counted), the most popular game of the lot was one that was only formally announced right at the end of January. So congratulations Dungeonborne - your blend of PvPvE dungeon crawling and fantasy skelly monsters clearly struck a chord with this year's Next Festers.

Valve has revealed the 50 most-played demos from 2024's Steam Next Fest, and topping the list is the dungeon crawler RPG Dungeonborne, the self-styled "next-gen" RTS Stormgate, and my personal favorite, the moody survival driving sim set in the lush Pacific Northwest rainforest, Pacific Drive.

This Steam Next Fest was dominated by two massive strategy games, and that feels weird for an event all about discoverability

When Valve first announced The Steam Game Festival – the event which would eventually become Steam Next Fest – it was an answer to the damage wrought on exhibiting developers by the pandemic. Launched in June 2020, the Festival was billed to developers as "an opportunity to get early feedback from players and build an audience for future releases." That remains true today, even as Next Fest has grown into an industry-spanning event that Valve rolls out multiple times a year – but it's more true for some games than others.
