But, let’s be real Steam has a ton of games and while their tagging system is good, some folks mislabel their games juuust to trick folks into buying a game that they might not have otherwise thrown their money at… And with thousands of games to dig through, finding the right games for you can be quite the undertaking, so I went through and picked out some of my must buy otome and indie otome games that are currently a part of the sale!
So prepare your wallets, these are the games you definitely should pick up during the 2021 Steam Summer Sale before it ends on July 8th!

Hey Hey Blerdy Tribe, it’s LGBT Pride Month, the annual celebration dedicated to the richly diverse LGBT+ community!! Now more than ever, representation matters, especially in the wake of the recent string of injustices carried out here in the United States and abroad.
These past few years I celebrated Pride Month with lists of 10 LGBTQ positive visual novels—2018’s List , 2019’s List, and 2020’s List—and I highly recommend giving those a read, there are some seriously great titles there that definitely warrant a look. Because it’s June once again, I have compiled another list with loads more LGBTQ+ positive Visual Novels!
I tried my best to choose games that presented members of the LGBTQ+ community in a positive light, focusing less on sexual orientation or gender identity and more on telling meaningful stories that focus on the human experience. As in previous years, I have include links to each of the games, a synopsis of the story, and a short summary of the types of representation you’ll find in the game. So, without further ado, here are Loads More LGBTQ Positive Visual Novels that you should totally check out this Pride Month (and beyond)!
