Known as “Forge Your Fate,” the Steam Summer Sale adventure minigame features the following description.

Obviously you are a hero. Everyone says so. But what kind? This year’s summer sale is no ordinary deep discount super sale — you are about to face a gauntlet of short stories, each ending with a choice that will help classify what sort of hero you are.

Choose from two possible actions in each of the fourteen Forge Your Fate stories found throughout the sale and receive an animated sticker as a memento of your decision. Upon completing all of the stories, you’ll get one of five unique badges reflecting your choices.

So get choosing! All items must be claimed before July 8th, 2021 at 10AM PST, when the Summer Sale comes to an end.

You always knew you were a hero.
It’s time to find out what kind of hero you are.
What do you do next?

Depending on the page you pick after this text, you’ll be taken to a specific genre of games that are heavily discounted. After you look through the selections, you have the option to continue your story. Doing gives you a number of choices that will unlock a special badge.

This ties into the Steam Points Shop update that does along with the event, netting some special profile bundles from various games.

Players can experience the Steam Summer Sale themselves now, running from June 24 to July 8. Be sure to let us know which of these great games you picked up or even which ones you really want to get in the comments section below.
