Devolver Digital hasn’t ever shied away from theatricality when it comes to their E3 conferences, and E3 2019 is no different.
Their conference absolutely took the piss out of Nintendo’s Direct format, but it was clearly all tongue-in-cheek and a barrel of laughs. Nina Struthers was back in business doing her batshit insane thing while lifting the lid on a handful of projects being worked by Devolver’s partners.
From Mediatonic, Fall Guys throws 100-players together online through escalating rounds of hyperactive mayhem until only one victor remains. It’s coming to PlayStation 4 and PC in 2020.
This hilarious collection contains eight original rip-offs of Devolver Digital games including Hotline Milwaukee, Enter the Gun Dungeon, Ape Out Jr. and Shootyboots.
This is a cool idea. Carrion is a reverse horror game in which you assume the role of an amorphous creature of unknown origin hell-bent on stalking and consuming those that imprisoned you. Getting a real Akira vibe from some of this gruesome art. Carrion is coming to consoles and PC in 2020.
Another curveball from Devolver was Enter the Gungeon coming to arcades in the form of a light-gun shooting gallery, cleverly titled House of the Gundead. It’s releasing next year and I can’t wait to give it a go.
The Messenger: Picnic Panic
After The Messenger received critical acclaim, it was probably inevitable that developer Sabotage would want to give back to fans that made the game such a huge hit. Picnic Panic is a free DLC with a tropical setting and it’s coming to PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch on July 11.
In summary, it was a pretty fun outing from Devolver Digital again this year.
