With every new Steam sale comes lamentations from players who acknowledge they already own more games than they can play, and that they’re going to buy even more titles they’ll probably never finish.
In light of that reality, Steam has announced a new event called Spring Cleaning that encourages players to dust off those old forgotten games, offering them rewards in exchange for playing what they already own.
The Steam Spring Cleaning event kicked off today (Friday, May 24) and will run through May 28 at 10AM PDT / 1PM EDT.
During that time, Steam customers can earn badges in exchange for completing event tasks, such as playing a game they’ve previously played for two hours, but haven’t played in a while.
Steam will refresh these tasks every day, and they’re joined by event projects, which are only completed once.
Players must earn five trophies via these tasks and projects in order to unlock a profile badge.
