Despite the ghost of E3 looming over June, the Summer Games Fest, Day of the Devs and Devolver Direct all went live today.
I sorted through the avalanche of announcements and trailers to find the *coolest* stuff!
Cocoon – New gameplay and a boss battle.
From the Lead Game Designer of Inside and Limbo. This might be my most anticipated game of 2023.
Under The Waves – Announcement Trailer
The setting, mood and tone all stand out. A tense, moody under-sea mystery? Let’s go!
Hauntii – Announcement Trailer
Gorgeous art design with pops of colour. This trailer evokes The Wild at Heart, Gris among other hand-drawn games…
Summerhill – Announce Teaser
From the makers of Alto’s Adventure, an atmospheric folk puzzler.
Seasalt Chronicles – Announce trailer
An adventure game where the presentation looks like a story book that’s come to life. Wonderful art, and an intriguing game loop.
Banishers – Gameplay reveal
From Don’t Nod (Vampyr, Life is Strange), the only real “triple-A” type game presentation from today that piqued my interest. The story set up looks very interesting so far.
