Devolver Direct Overview 2023
Let’s delve right into it!
Yet another Devolver Direct has come and gone, with 11 games receiving the spotlight this year. This year’s event included a real-life robot and many gags and goofs. There were even horror elements included in this one. But what really matters is the games, so let’s get you up to speed on the announcements.
The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood
The first game shown in this year’s event takes place in space. It seemingly features some card game elements and what looks to be an emotional story based on the character’s dialogue with their family members and a strange-looking demon figure shown at the beginning of this trailer. The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood is coming to PC and Nintendo Switch in 2023.
Sludge Life 2
If you’re a fan of spray painting and basketball, you’ll be happy to know that the title features both of those activities, a fun art style, and what looks to be some computer-hacking elements. The demo for Sludge Life 2 is out right now.
Bleak Sword DX
It’s time to pick up your sword and ride into battle on your trusty steed because Bleak Sword DX is available now on PC and Nintendo Switch. This game has fixed camera angles that put you right into the action while battling demon after demon in a pixelated world. How bleak will it be? It’s only a matter of time until we find out.
KarmaZoo is a competitive co-op platformer where up to ten random players team up to win and complete a loop. You can either find bliss in cooperation or find yourself in peril after you land on a pesky spike and lose a life.
