We are pleased to present the Women's Day Steam Event, March 7th-11th 2022.
The event is featuring games by studios led by persons who identify as women, and promoting the amazing work of women in games for International Women’s Rights Day.
With the support of Valve, the event will be featured on the Steam home page. We are dedicated to uplifting women and their work, and helping players discover the incredible talent behind those games.
