While it still stings a little that E3 2023 has been cancelled, the event has been struggling to maintain relevance for several years. Having said that, a fairly modern highlight during that time has been the presence of Devolver Digital. This indie publishing label has been delivering satirical press conferences since 2017, and they're always a treat — a delirious, blood-soaked, ungodly treat.
The good news is that, while E3 itself isn't a thing this year, Devolver Direct is, as has now been confirmed by the company:
It's not much to go on, is it? However, what we do know is that the showcase will have a handful of games rolled into all the madness. While each event is delivered with humour, the more recent shows have all brought us at least a few noteworthy game announcements or updates. We imagine there will be one or two new games revealed, plus updates on titles such as The Plucky Squire and KarmaZoo.
Are you excited for Devolver Direct 2023? Will Nina Struthers do something violent and/or gross? Discuss in the comments section below.
I enjoy a lot of the games they publish but I find their PR stuff grating and very try-hard.
I love Devolver and their showcases. 30 minutes of madness to show 5 trailers for indie games. Amazing stuff.
Love how they basically is giving the middle finger, to all events, where the developers takes it way too seriously.
Isn’t this whole ironic charade getting a little old? Can’t keep repeating the same punchline just because you think you hit the nail on the head first time around.
This is glorious news! Give me lots of yelling, histeria and F-bombs in between my game trailers! 😬
So it's going to be a more sedate one then? 😁
Yes! Approve or not, at least their showcases are not simpering suits spouting the same tired lines as everyone else. Ill look forward to this...
@prince_myshkin Who said it's going to be the same as last time?
It's funny how this started out as making fun of typical E3 and game industry tropes, but now this showcase has become kind of a trope on its own. I wonder where they're going to take that concept.
Anyway, it's the least of my worries really. The showcase's trailers have been great every time. Haven't been disappointed by them yet, so let the good times roll.
Nice, very much looking forward to it.
Sony currently owns a 5% stake in the Devolver Digital which is interesting. So, Sony probably is allowed to market whatever games they make for consoles.
@Kidfried @Titntin @Balie3000 @Voltan Yeah I don't get why everyone else are being party poopers.
Extremely excited to see the madness unfold in this year's showcase.
I am a fan for the insanity, not the actual games lol.
Fantastic news! Can’t wait for Devolver madness!
