It would be a summer of video games without a visit from Devolver Digital and our old friend Nina Struthers during a direct video. because let’s be honest, the one thing that’s been missing from the overbearing amount of debut gaming streams that have replaced E3 2020 this year is a sense of humor. Which is due to the fact that the void was usually filled by Devolver’s patterned double-finger attitude toward all the pre-pre-pre-pre-pre-hype. Well, we’re finally going to be able to bask in the glow of their Direct event again as Devolver Direct will be taking place on July 11th, 2020. If you don’t know what insanity you’re in for, feel free to watch last year’s video below as we see what’s become of the future that, low and behold, Devolver almost nailed right on the head.
Amid a groundbreaking new level of tedious digital showcases, Devolver Digital aims to raise the bar for overrated marketing videos with this year’s Devolver Direct on July 11 at 12:00PM Pacific Time. The seventh best indie game label will step up to the plate once more and whiff real hard with a live pre-recorded presentation on Twitch and Steam. This year’s showcase continues the tradition of overpromises with new game reveals, gameplay reveals, release date announcements, and special guests from the industry to help usher in these important marketing bullet points. And it’s nearly all gameplay because that’s what the youths of today demand.
The astonishing misuse of marketing budget will end with a few surprises and game demos available to play by the unwashed masses including Carrion, Disc Room, and an unannounced game. Maybe another game too, who can really tell where this is all leading. Devolver Digital fans and detractors can catch up on the unnecessarily intricate narrative to the ongoing saga by watching last year’s Devolver Direct and begin their uninformed speculation at on Discord.
