Stray, just launched by Annapurna Interactive, has rapidly become well recognized as the cat game, and the publisher is gaining a reputation for creating unusual games outside the established road. Annapurna showcased a number of new games and revealed more information and release dates on previously announced titles in that context. This is everything we saw during the expo, including the currently available games and demonstrations.
The forthcoming game from Outerloop Games, Thirsty Suitors, was shown in further detail. To explain how warfare works, the extended gaming example focused solely on your third-grade sweetheart Sergio. You may employ a taunt in order to put your opponents in a “thirsty” attitude, and battles can alter mid-match to demand unique talents like phoning his mother, and eventually, you can reconcile and become friends. In addition, we were able to catch a glimpse of some skating. Steam, PlayStation, Switch, Xbox, and Game Pass will all have access to Thirsty Suitors.
As a lady picks through things left behind, she reminisces about her own recollections of the past in the cinematic adventure game Hindsight, which the presentation showed off. It will be released on August 4th.
It’s the next game by Kentucky Route Zero company.
Cardboard Computer’s founders discussed the origins of the firm and what their next project would include during a developer spotlight. The upcoming game, which has yet to be given a name, would, according to the developers, be more performance-oriented and faster-paced, despite the fact that little of it was revealed. In spite of the fact that Kentucky Route Zero contained humorous aspects, this one appears to be more lighthearted.
Bounty Star: Graveyard Clem’s Sorrowful Tale
Bounty Star, a Western sci-fi mash-up by Dinogod, was unveiled. An Old West-themed teaser was followed by massive robot suits armed with rockets and melee weapons. In 2023, it will be here.
The Wilderness Outside the City
During the showcase, the Outer Wilds devs gave an update. Currently, a Switch port is being worked on, although it’s taking longer than intended. However, the company has confirmed that PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will receive new-generation updates. They were shown running at 60fps in a short clip. In a few short days (on or around September 15th), the new features will be accessible.
Flock, a bright, cartoon-like aviation game made its debut earlier this year. As a leader of your flock, you look to be riding on the lead bird. This feature is coming to Xbox, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Steam as well as Game Pass.
The next game from Katamari Damacy
We got a small preview for the forthcoming Katamari Damacy game, from a new firm named Uvula, by the developer of the game. An adorable puppy licked a young person’s mouth as they opened their eyes in the teaser. That was the entire point of the exercise. You’re as excellent an expert on the game as we are.
The Wilderness of the Past
The event ended with a new trailer for The Lost Wild, a first-person survival horror game. A stegosaurus and other ferocious dinosaurs met your guy as he made his way through the forest, collecting supplies from decrepit structures. There’s no word yet on when the film will be available.
Spotlights on Developing Software
Short developer spotlights were also given to a number of additional studios. Work on an unnamed game is being done by Yarn Owl. Forever Ago is a story-driven road trip adventure game developed by Third Shift in which you take control of an old guy who embarks on a journey in a van and keeps a journal of his experiences along the way. It was also revealed that Dreamfeel’s upcoming unnamed game involves a group of anthropomorphic cats standing on their hind legs.
New Platforms Will Have Video Games
In addition, some of the company’s current collection was highlighted, since it would be making its way to other platforms shortly. A few titles, including two that will be included in the Game Pass subscription, had release dates announced as part of the announcement.
Winter is coming to Xbox and Switch for The Pathless, Maquette, Solar Ash and Maquette on Game Pass.
