The Devolver Digital Showcase is always a treat, offering up great games with a unique twist in the presentations’ format. This year the Devolver went all-in with parodying the multitude of gaming services out there with the Devolver Max Pass +. It’s a totally free, fictional subscription service where you have to pay for each separate game. As the team explains, “a completely free subscription service that offers the entire Devolver Digital catalog – including all future titles – as exclusive, premium purchases.” With tongue firmly planted in cheek Devolver Digital offered up a very impressive lineup with a great diversity in gaming genres.

Below are all of the announcements from the rollercoaster ride of a show:

DevolverTrek To Yomi

In Trek To Yomi you play as Hiroki a lone samurai who vows to protect his village from multiple external threats. The grainy black and white visual style is a beautiful homage to classic film director Akira Kurosawa. In the 2.5D side scroller you must voyage beyond life and death to confront personal demons and decide on your path forward. I can’t wait to play through this beautiful adventure, it’s coming to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S/X and PC in 2022.

Devolver Digital - Shadow Warrior 3Shadow Warrior 3

The latest trailer for Shadow Warrior 3 was an adrenaline-soaked thrill ride. The offbeat first-person features fast-paced gunplay, brutal melee combat, and free-running mechanics. The wild adventure is slated to blast onto the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2021.

Devolver Digital - WizardDevolver Digital’s Wizard With A Gun

It’s time to trade in that magic wand for a gun!? Wizard with a Gun is an online cooperative sandbox survival game set in a magical wilderness. You’ll forge for your own weapons as you build a fantastical arsenal that will grow so powerful it will make Harry Potter jealous. Can you wield your magic and keep the forces of evil at bay? Wizard With A Gun is slated to arrive on the Nintendo Switch and PC in 2022.

Devolver Digital - InscryptionInscryption

Prepare yourself for a mind-bending experience with this card-based adventure that blends the deckbuilding roguelike, escape-room style puzzles, and psychological horror. It’s quite the macabre mix that just oozes character with its artistic style. Inscryption is coming to a PC near you later this year, shuffle that deck if you dare.

Devolver Digital - Death's DoorDevolver Digital Knocking at Death’s Door

Reaping souls of the dead and punching a clock might get monotonous but it’s honest work for a Crow. The job gets lively when your assigned soul is stolen, and you must track down a desperate thief to a realm untouched by death – where creatures grow far past their expiry and overflow with greed and power. You can go knocking at Death’s Door on July 20th on Xbox Series S | X, Xbox One and PC on July 20th. Coincidentally, the game launches on my birthday I don’t know whether to be excited to freaked out by this omen. Either way, you better believe I’ll be checking this out day 1!

  1. I’m at the point where a game really has to stand out either stylistically or by adding in some novel gameplay features that haven’t really been used much before.

    Inscryption looks like a really cool blend of various genres I’m interested in – card games and puzzles

    Trek To Yomi, however, caught my eye – stylistically it draws me in – if the story can do the same, I’m sold :).
