Exploring the Steam Summer Sale 2023 is possible until July 13, 2023, and one particularly well represented genre with great discounts is the Metroidvania-style game – one of those genre names derived from a specific series, but is otherwise not very descriptive if you don’t already know what it’s all about. What you can expect from these titles is a lot of exploration mixed with combat. As you get deeper into the game, you return to areas you’ve already combed through and will find additional paths or secrets, looking at everything with a new perspective.
