Devolver Digital’s E3 events usually poke fun at themselves and the more serious press conferences of E3. This year they decided to take a slightly different approach. Instead of being a parody of a press conference, they decided to parody digital events that have become popular in recent years thanks mainly to Nintendo. In fact, their event this year was a direct parody of Nintendo’s Direct events even going so far as to this particular E3 event their “Devolver Digital Direct.” Even though it was a parody, complete with a storyline picking up from their last E3 event, Devolver Digital still announced some games in a fun “Digital Direct” event.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a spin on the battle royale formula where it takes 100 players and drops them into a colorful obstacle course. Players then do not try to kill each other, but try to survive the obstacle course and the hazards in it and be the last one standing. Players who play this when it comes to the PS4 and PC next year are bound to be in for a hectic but fun time.
Devolver Bootleg which is available now is an 8-in-1 collection of bootleg 8-bit versions of Devolver Digital’s games. Some of the games included are Enter the Gun Dungeon which is a bootleg of Enter the Gungeon, Hotline Milwaukee which is a bootleg of Hotline Miami, Super Absolver Mini: Turbo Fighting Championship which is a bootleg of Absolver, and more. The collection of games is actually available now for $4.94 on Steam. This is not a bad price considering the collection is published by Devolver Digital, so unlike actual bootlegs, their quality is more than likely actually decent.
Developed by Phobia Game Studio, Carrion is what is being dubbed as a reverse horror experience. It’s a 2D game where you actually play as the monster as it hunts its victims. Carrion will be available on PC and consoles when it releases during 2020.
Enter the Gungeon: House of the Gundead
Enter the Gungeon: House of the Gundead is not a video game that will be available on PC or any console, but in fact will be an arcade game complete with a cabinet. Shipping during the first quarter of 2020, Enter the Gungeon: House of the Gundead will be a light gun shooter. Enter the Gungeon: House of the Gundead will be available for pre-purchase here.
