9 Unmissable Demos Of Steam’s LudoNarraCon

Next Fest gets a lot of deserved attention, but Steam’s lesser-known, equally awesome festival, LudoNarraCon is something indie fans should not miss. Now on its fifth year, the story-focused digital convention boasts a range of activities like panels, streams, sales, and, of course, some hot demos.

LudoNarraCon kicks off today and runs through the eighth. With such a short time, I’m here to point players toward some of the most exciting previews. Here’s a list of demos you won’t want to miss during this year’s event:
