If you're looking for an excuse to escape the summer heat, you might be interested to hear that Steam's massive Summer Sale has now arrived. The whole thing will last until July 9th, so even if you're currently unsure of what to grab, you should have plenty of time to figure things out.

Much like some of the earlier Steam sales, the current Summer Sale has a bit of a gimmick associated with it. Simply put, you can join and support one of the 'racing' teams in order to have a chance to receive the top item from your wishlist. The odds aren't exactly amazing given Steam's userbase, but since it doesn't cost you anything to enter, I'd say it's still worth checking out. Who knows, you might just get lucky!

That said, it is important to mention that you don't need to completely empty your wishlist in order to participate in the challenge, as a surprisingly large number of people have already done. The only thing you need to make sure is that your favorite game is at the very top of the list, and that's pretty much it. Everything else is up to pure luck.

Whether you win or not, the good news is that the Summer Sale is filled with a ton of discounts, so do make sure to give it a peek once you have a bit of free time. Have fun!
