The platform's Winter Sale is often one of its more generous events of the year, and it seems 2023 is no different. 

The Steam Winter Sale runs through January 4, so be sure to snag some of these great deals while they last. Also on offer is the Steam Winter Sale bundle, which nets you 10 games for $10. It's a promotion Steam often runs alongside its savings events to put award-winning indie games on more players' radars. This year's bundle includes the cozy dog shelter simulator To the Rescue, which helps raise money for real-world animal shelters, as well as Dark Deity, a tactical RPG that looks inspired by genre classics like Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics.
