In the show notes is a link to a listing of free game demos and alpha/beta/early access games for you to check out! This is a work in progress and more game demos will be added to the list soon. If there are demos that are missing from any of the recent events, please comment in the spreadsheet and they can be added.

Disclaimer: There were hundreds of games announced this weekend! We only discuss a scant handful of a few that caught our eye at the moment in the time allowed to us. We're definitely going to cross into "I can't believe you didn't talk about X" territory, and apologize if we weren't able to discuss the many games we didn't get to.
