Smushi Come Home looked the best of this series of games.
Surmount looked like fun in local coop.
Kibu looked super purty but to what end, you till the land and plant some potatoes? no thanks
Future of Play
Atomic Picnic: 4 player coop shooter/roguelite
Cavern on Dreams: I guess this is very nostalgic of ps1/n64 3d platformers?
Rune Fencer Illya: indie metroidvania, but it’s still on kickstarter campaign. Ugh.
Sorry but what the hell it’s a ‘roguelite social deduction game’. Are you throwing buzzwords? Because it seemed a clone of Among Us.
Also, in a way seeing this
was more sanity-loss inducing that a normal Chulthu.
Techtonica looks like a good automation game, but then again so are others in the genre, that I didn’t play.
Artic Awakening: I think I have seen this game on the previous year too, although the name doesn’t ring any bells.
Demon Spore: this looked original when I saw the first trailer a pair of months ago, and still looks good.
Psychroma: another very interesting horror game, which normally I would have skipped if I wasn’t watching these trailers. It reminded me somehow to a manga famous for how trippy it is, about a drug user.
Let’s Revolution: For a second this looked like a souped up fantasy minesweeper. I’m reading it’s actually a puzzle/roguelite game.
Airbone Empire: Flying city builder?
Agreed. And it looks like it’s only $16 since it launched on Steam today with a discount. But I think it’s also coming to Switch too, so I’ll probably wait for that, since a game like this, I want to play with my son on the big TV, not huddled around a computer.
I thought Frogsong also looked potentially interesting. Hopefully that’s also coming to home console too, not just Steam.
A lot of respect for these hosts btw. The Wholesome crew did a great job of staying in character as people who might be doing ASMR videos, trying to stay even keel and soothing the whole time. And the two prolific voice actors they get for the Future Games Show are always excellent at staying excited even as they read the (sometimes terrible) lines written for them. Just really professional all around. Very impressive.
The feed crapped out at that point, and when it came back it was Star Trucker.
This was supposed to be the dinosaur trailer for Instinction:
Oh that makes more sense. Not that the full trailer gets to clarify what type of game it will be.
I have to wonder if the developers who came up with toasterball were on drugs at the time.
From the OTK showcase that I missed yesterday. Looks somewhat janky but still promising.
Boti: Byteland looked a nice 3d platformed with coop.
Odinfall was a twin stick roguelite shooter, I will watch how it evolves on the roguelite thread.
Whisker Squadron is from the Race the Sun dev, and it seems a bit familiar to that, but being more actiony.
Patrick’s Parabox is a puzzle game that made my brain hurt.
Riftbound has a forgettable art… but at the end I notice what it truly is. It’s a roguelike Plants vs Zombies! Somehow it didn’t register at first.
I got up early for this! I believe this is the official stream.
Are we expecting anything exciting here?
All I’m really waiting on is the FF16 demo after the showcase later today.
Well, this won’t be for everyone, but I’m really hoping for some Avowed gameplay. I want Obsidian to do a better Skyrim game than Bethesda.
I’m also hoping they reveal Forza Motorsport’s campaign and that it’s an interesting one, and that they go back to FM5’s caRPG aspect where you had to earn money and buy cars instead of them having showered on you faster than you can drive them.
Thanks, I had opening thegameawards link (literally the first one youtube gave me) and comparing both, it seems yours has a slightly higher video bitrate.
-Cyberpunk expansion is supposed to show in some place, and given it didn’t in the Sony showcase nor in the sumergames festival…
-Some Forza trailer
-Unavowed, the Obsidian game
-maybe a teaser for whatever id next game is?
-Indiana Jones game from MachineGames
The problem with YouTube is it’s 30-40 seconds behind Twitch.
Oh hey, you’re right. Here’s the Twitch -
All right so! I think I’ll get to watch at least part of this, may have to catch Starfield later. But still - bring it on!
Thanks, 3 seconds ahead of The Game Awards stream. For maximum early excitement.
Cool, Richard Ayoade! Nice start.
Ricahrd Ayoade was not what I was expecting. Fable?
