Steam's next big 2023 game is free to download and play now

Steam's next big 2023 game is free to download and play now

The only way is up

I'm really only just learning that Steam is positively groaning with free games and downloads, if only you know exactly where to look.

In the last week alone there have been over a dozen free games available via Steam. And while none of them are exactly AAA juggernauts, they're all unique, stylish, and something a little different to offer. So, you can probably tell where this is going: we're back with another juicy Steam free download for you.

The latest free download is a demo for one of 2023's most interesting looking games, and it's well worth a look if you're into classic adventure games, climbing, or general chill vibes.

Announced over Summer Game Fest last week, Jusant is the new game from Life Is Strange developer Don't Nod. It looks like it couldn't be more different from the studio's usual interactive story fare, but I'm all the more interested in it because of that.

Here's the official Steam synopsis: "Enjoy meditative vibes in Jusant, an action-puzzle climbing game. Scale an immeasurably tall tower and ascend to new heights alongside your watery companion.

"Master your climbing tools, find your way up through diverse biomes, and piece together the tower’s past. Jusant is a brand-new action-puzzle climbing game and a meditative journey to the top of a tall tower.

"Challenge yourself at your own pace, explore different paths, and unravel the secrets from a bygone civilization."

While a release date has yet to be confirmed, the fact there's a fairly substantial playable demo free to download and play now would suggest it's coming sooner rather than later. Anyway, you can head over to Jusant's Steam page and grab the demo right now. There's no word on how long this will remain available for, however, so be sure to get in quick so you don't miss out on one of 2023's most intriguing games.
