Devolver’s E3 showcase was another highlight of a disappointing year – –


Devolver’s E3 showcase aired earlier this evening, where they announced a few new games but also, more importantly, continued the story of executive Nina Struthers. The indie publisher’s weird and violent keynotes have been a highlight of the last three E3s, and they still are. You can watch the full show below.

At this point, I couldn’t summarize Nina Struthers’ story, so I won’t try. To me, Devolver’s shows walk a fine line and risk becoming surrealism to itself, but they succeed with excellent performance, with relative pacing, and with writing a million times better than any. another grinding E3 show. Although they feature explicit fiction, Devolver are the only people who seem to be really enjoying themselves.

The 30-minute showcase included new trailers for the Shadow Warrior 3 first-person gorefest and the Inscryption horror card game, as well as release dates for the Phantom Abyss first-person speedrunner and roguelite d Death’s Door raven-based action. Devolver also announced Trek To Mori, Wizard With A Gun, the mobile game Tumble Time, and Demon Throttle, a Switch game only available through a physical version. (They also announced the Terra Nil reverse city builder a few days ago.)

Around video games, the showcase focused on Devolver MaxPass +, a free subscription service offering “monetization as a service”. Do I explain that this is a joke? They engaged very well on this website, but I’m sorry it’s my job to mess it up.

E3 2021 will run from June 12 to 15, with more events around. Please check our E3 broadcast schedule for more really useful information on the entire virtual shebang, and visit our E3 2021 hub to stay up to date with the latest news.
