Today’s stacked The Game Awards event has brought with it plenty of accolades, updates, first looks and surprise reveals, awarding some of this year’s best and most exciting games and studios while setting up an exciting future to come.
One neat surprise that we felt is absolutely worth calling out was the reveal of Aussie studio House House’s next joint after Untitled Goose Game, and once again published by the folks at Panic, Big Walk.
My friends, this game looks great. Set on an island covered in Australian bushland, Big Walk is a cooperative online multiplayer game that’ll let players loose to explore, solve puzzles, challenge the environment around them and more with cooperation of the utmost importance. It just looks gorgeous, adorable and bit fucking silly.
“After having such a nice time working together on Untitled Goose Game, we were really honored when House House approached us about working together again to publish Big Walk,” said Nick Suttner, Panic’s Head of Publishing, in an accompanying press release. “We had no idea what kind of game they’d be showing us, but we knew it was something special from our first play session. Most of us aren’t really online multiplayer people, but Big Walk cut right through any fears or cynicism we had, and felt so refreshing, welcoming, and humane. We’re so excited to take a Big Walk with everyone.”
