Valve’s massive autumn Steam sale is officially underway and includes steep discounts on some of the best and biggest PC games, from atmospheric adventure In Other Waters to action Souls-like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Now’s the time to fill in any major holes in your gaming library and expand your ever-growing backlog.

Running through Black Friday and Cyber Monday from November 22 to November 29 at 1 p.m. ET, Steam’s autumn sale will include a rolling list of constantly updating and time-limited sales. While blockbusters like Cyberpunk 2077 and critically-acclaimed hits like Hades are part of the sale, so is a ton of other stuff. Here are some of the current highlights:

The autumn sale also kicks off nomination season for the Steam Awards. Players can go to the store page for their favorite games and vote for them to be recognized (and get their own discounts) at the end of the year. Here are the categories:

  • Game of the Year

  • VR Game of the Year

  • NEW: Best Game on the Go

  • Labor of Love

  • Better with Friends

  • Most Innovative Gameplay

  • Outstanding Story-Rich Game

  • Best Game You Suck At (no offense)

  • Outstanding Visual Style

  • Best Soundtrack

  • Sit Back and Relax

While a lot of these are competitive, “Sit Back and Relax” has a clear runaway favorite for me: supremely chill city-builder Dorfromantik. It’s about plopping down fields and buildings on a hexagonal grid and enjoying the beautiful and rewarding ways they interact with each other to create something bigger than the sum of their parts. Even better, as part of the Autumn Steam sale it’s currently 20 percent off.
