2023 Video Game Frame Game - All Games and Frames Welcome!

My confusion doth but increase, good sir!

Haha I admit, I picked what I thought might be a hard one. :)

As a clue, it was released this year on all platforms bar Switch, and is the third in a series of games.

Another clue: trickily this is not a screen from the ‘main’ game, but a side activity!

Final Fantasy XVI?

Nope! :)

I have no idea what I’m looking at, but I’m intrigued.

I, too, have absolutely no idea what’s going on here, but am quite curious about it.

Zeno…I mean Clash: Artifacts of Chaos

@SweetJP is correct!

It is from Clash: Artifacts of Chaos, the third in the ‘Zeno Clash’ series of first-person brawlers by Chilean developers ACE Team.

That hint about it being the third game in a series and a release from this year was what got the gears turning. I almost guessed BG3 but the fonts looked wrong.

Guess I’m up next:

Little Nightmares?

Nope, but good guess!

Next clue:

Another one:

Control?

Final Fantasy X-2?

Some interesting guesses, but none have gotten it yet.

A cryptic hint: This game was designed around replicating a gameplay mechanic from a different game.

Is it Energy Hook?

Nope!
