If you are in a “just the facts, ma’am” mode, the next Devolver Direct is scheduled for July 11th at noon PT. This show is Devolver Digital’s annual gaming presentation and will include new game announcements, gameplay and release date reveals, and guests all wrapped into one big production. For this year, it will also be gameplay heavy, since they know that’s what fans want.
One thing that won’t change is Devolver Digital’s commitment to making it a show to remember, and I regret not tuning into past Devolver shows sooner. While the other companies try to impress you by how cool or sophisticated they are, Devolver Digital elevates the presentation into something cinematic with a purely bonkers story that serves as a backdrop for showing you its games in a way that demonstrates the company’s personality. It’s the kind of marketing idea that would be quickly nuked at another company but is fully embraced in all its wackiness. You can check out last year’s show here.
After the show, you will be able to play demos of Carrion, Disc Room, and an unannounced game. It should be something incredible for all kinds of reasons, and I am really looking forward to watching the “overrated marketing video” from the “seventh best indie game label” on Twitch for a really different kind of show on July 11th.
