Games Not On Steam List

games not on steam

If you’re looking for:

  • commercial games that were never released on steam, this GoG list is huge and full of quality.
  • indie games that are generally more experimental you can wade through all that is itch.io
  • a mix of both, in a cheap monthly Netflix like subscription model Utomik has quite a bit.
  • free, open betas then Alpha Beta Gamer stays current.
  • completely independent games that aren’t available anywhere except directly, scroll down.

Rules for getting on the Games Not on Steam list:

  • must not be available on Steam (or GOG, Origin, Battlenet, Microsoft etc.)
  • uses a client (not a browser game)
  • english support
  • active community (if multiplayer)
  • isn’t utter shit

Price Key

  • F2O = No payment options available
  • F2P = Free to play but with in-game purchases
  • P2O = Pay once, play forever
  • SUB = Monthly Subscription

If you know any others please leave a message below so I can add – thank you.

Why make a list of games not on steam? I’m still bothered by the fact that (apparently) there’s no natural way to find a game like FUMBBL. It’s an open source Bloodbowl client that beats the commerical Bloodbowl games in every way except graphics. It has a mature community and it’s worth knowing about. But it’s opensource so they’ll never release on Steam, never launch a kickstarter and never bother to optimize their SEO. I want to find all the secret games lurking on the internet.

I want good games to be discovered. Running this website seemed like the most direct way to do that.

    I think you should put release year info there as well, or last updated, or something in that line.

      That’s a good idea. I’ll do release date since hopefully this list will get longer and I won’t be able to check for updates. Thanks

What did you think?
