Steam’s LGBTQ+ Sale Features Some Great Indie Titles

In honor of Pride Month, Steam is hosting a sale on a host of LGBTQ+ games right now, the overwhelming majority of which are indie titles that you may not want to miss out on. From visual novels, engaging role-playing titles, and high-profile narrative experiences, there’s a bit of something for everyone.

Perhaps the most notable of all titles included is Life Is Strange: Before the Storm for the staggeringly low price of only $3.39. This emotionally compelling episodic tale acts as a prequel to the original Life Is Strange, but despite being a little bit shorter overall, it’s every bit a must-play. It’s worth noting, too, that Life Is Strange and Life Is Strange 2 are both on sale, too, and although they aren’t as heavily focused on the LGBTQ+ experience, now is simply a great time to snag the full series.

Meanwhile, you can also grab the narrative-driven Gone Home, exploration-based Tacoma, or intriguing adventure title Night in the Woods, all of which have made waves in the indie scene since their releases. Plus, you’ll almost definitely want to take an opportunity to catch the extremely popular roguelike entry Hades or the ever-energetic and immensely creative Sayonara Wild Hearts while they’re on sale for such low prices.

While some of the other games in the LGBTQ+ sale may not have received as much media attention, there are some hidden gems to find in there if you look closely enough. So whether you’re just casually shopping or looking for something specific, you shouldn’t have any problem finding some excellent new games to add to your collection.

Billy will always claim he didn't intentionally get the platinum trophy in Snoopy's Grand Adventure, but he's lying.
