Devolver Digital brought a number of games to its E3 event, as well as its unique sense of humor as it revealed Devolver MaxPass+. This is a free subscription service that will allow you to make premium purchases from the entire Devolver Digital catalog. Upcoming additions to that catalog were also showcased, starting with a new gameplay trailer for Shadow Warrior 3. Unfortunately the release date for the title has not been narrowed down any from the 2021 target, but at least we get to see more of the action it will offer.
The whole Devolver MaxPass+ Showcase video will be embedded at the end and it includes each of the individual trailers, so you can decide how you wish to view them.
The next game shown off was Trek to Yomi and it will be arriving in 2021. In this a young swordsman must protect the people of his town to keep the vow he made to his dying master. It is coming from Leonard Menchiari and Flying Wild Hog to PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 5 when it releases.
Following that, a new trailer for Phantom Abyss was shared along with the Steam Early Access release date of June 22. The game offers an asynchronous multiplayer racing experience where players try to go explore procedurally generated temples to find the relics they have hidden. Traps will need to be dodged, chasms leapt over, and guardians avoided to reach the relics, and once the legendary relic has been found, the temple will be sealed forever and for everyone. You will also never get to visit the same temple twice, whether you left in failure or with one of the lesser relics.
Wizard with a Gun. Honestly I am tempted to leave it at that with the trailer embedded below, but I need to keep testing out these mechanical switches. This is an online cooperative sandbox survival game where you will face dangerous creatures and arcane mysteries while trying to collect, craft, and outfit your wizard. Take care to design your weapons, bullets, and the furnishings of your home, but be careful as your magic may extend beyond your control and burn it all down. Wizard with a Gun is releasing in 2022 for PC and Nintendo Switch.
Death's Door had been announced previously, showing off its world where Crows are in charge of collecting the souls of the dead. While this work can get boring, the soul you were sent after has been stolen, making it necessary for you to track it and the thief down to a world without death. Now we know it will be releasing on July 20 for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. If that sounds like a fun time for you, Steam has a 15% discount on pre-purchases of both the standard and Deluxe Edition.
Revealed at the event was Inscryption, the next game from the creator of Pony Island and The Hex, a "mind melting, self-destructing love letter to video games." This is an inky black card-based odyssey that blends deckbuilding roguelike with escape-room style puzzles and psychological horror like some "blood-laced smoothie." Words I could only expect to see in a Devolver Digital press release. It will be releasing later this year.
The only other game announcements were for Devolver Tumble Time, a mobile game, and Demon Throttle, which is coming as a physical release, and only a physical release for Nintendo Switch, but as neither are coming to PC, I have just left the links to their trailers.
Lastly, here is the Devolver MaxPass+ Showcase, containing all of the trailers as well as the usual weirdness of Devolver Digital marketing videos. That includes the special "NFT" of the showcase itself, a VHS copy with the tab violently torn out to prevent it from being recorded over. It is listed as sold out in the MaxPass+ premium store and priced at $1000, so either it was a joke or someone actually made that purchase, with the proceeds going to the Scratch Foundation. There are other premium items available as well, for those of you wanting to show off your Devolver MaxPass+ subscription to the world.
