Today was the PC Gaming Show: Most Wanted. Despite being a two-hour event, there weren’t an excessive number of announcements, although there were several interesting ones. Therefore, let’s give you a summary of the most interesting games that appeared during this conference. Most of them were already known, all of them are outside the realm of AAA, but that’s okay: not everything in life is Assassin’s Creed or GTA.
One of the most unique games showcased during the conference is Indika. Putting players in the shoes of a young character on a journey of self-discovery, their traveling companion is none other than the devil, journeying through a surreal Russia. With a striking trailer that includes an unexpected twist, the game delves into complex and profound themes surrounding religion, authority, and how they restrict us. It also explores how these elements have shaped the thinking of contemporary Russia. This is why its developers have had to leave the country.
Necrosoft Games has showcased more than one game that, quietly, might end up becoming one of those games that cause a sensation. Merging Tactical RPG gameplay with a Persona-style narrative and character design inspired by Go Nagai, the creator of mangas like Devilman or Mazinger Z, Demonschool possesses all the elements to succeed. It’s fun, spectacular, and looks both novel and familiar. A perfect blend for making a big impact.
In a conference filled with dark-themed games, none is as ominous as darkwebSTREAMER. Set in an alternative ’90s where there’s an internet elaborate enough to house streamers, the game puts players in the shoes of a streamer navigating the dark web and discovering something terrible. The supernatural is real. With a terrifying trailer and an incredibly intriguing premise, there’s little doubt that this could be one of those horror games that truly captivates players.
Do you like Star Wars? Did you enjoy Star Wars Episode I: Racer back in the day? Then you’re going to love DEATHGRIP because it’s a game inspired by the pod races of Star Wars, specifically by Star Wars Episode I: Racer, promising to bring back that adrenaline rush and speed sensation. Whether it’s a homage or a plagiarism, that’s for you to decide, and how much you want to play it.
