Annapurna Interactive Showcase: let's go through all the announcements

Annapurna Interactive Showcase

A few hours ago the second Annapurna Interactive Showcase went on the air, a digital event entirely dedicated to the next upcoming Annapurna productions. This publisher is one of the most prolific and interesting to keep an eye on, and more and more titles are leaving their mark year after year. Stray, the latest Annapurna release, has achieved incredible popularity, but let's see together which games are announced in the publisher's latest event.

Annapurna Interactive Showcase | All games announced

Thirsty Suitors

The show opened with a new extended gameplay of the well-known Thirsty Suitors, a particular and colorful role-playing game with a whimsical and out of the ordinary artistic direction. The turn-based combat phases are joined by exploratory sections where Jala, the protagonist, will be able to whiz on board a skate.

Bounty Star

The Annapurna Interactive Showcase is tinged with action with Bounty Star, an action game that mixes the wild west mood with the presence of gigantic mechas. A little TPS and a little action with melee combat, a game not to be missed if you love experimental experiences based on the far west.

Forever Ago

In one of the developer spaces we get a lot of information and more than a few glimpses of one of the next upcoming Annapurna titles. Let's talk about Forever Ago, a title inspired by a road trip that the two German developers who founded the Third Shift studio made several years ago.

The return of Keita Takahashi, father of Katamari Damacy and Wattam

With a teaser lasting just a few seconds, the beloved Keita Takahashi presents us with a new project that is currently very mysterious. From a few seconds of teaser, however, we can already glimpse the unique style of this great author.

The Lost Wild

Annapurna's digital show ends with The Lost Wild, perhaps that which we can define as the showpiece of the presentation. The title is presented as a first-person survival where players will have to survive in a mysterious island populated by ferocious dinosaurs.

With The Lost Wild this second Annapurna Interactive Showcase has also ended. What was the announcement that was able to excite you the most? Let us know in the comments.

Annapurna held its latest show today, revealing new games and giving updates on upcoming titles. The Annapurna Interactive Showcase revealed a few new titles, gave updates on other games, and also highlighted some of the developers with which Annapurna is working.

The publisher has had a banner year so far, with titles like Stray, Neon White, and A Memoir Blue. So while some of the games shown or discussed may not be ready for prime time, Annapurna’s ability to pick winners means they’re worth keeping an eye on.

New games: Bounty Star, The Lost Wild

Annapurna didn’t have a large number of new titles to reveal, but they did show a handful of promising trailers. The most interesting one was The Lost Wild, which looks like a dinosaur survival horror in the style of Alien: Isolation. The trailer shows the protagonist lasting against dinos in some kind of dense forest filled with abandoned buildings. It’s currently available to wishlist on Steam.

The other big reveal is Bounty Star: The Morose Tale of Graveyard Clem. From what the trailer shows, the main character is a beleaguered cowgirl/possibly bounty hunter who operates in a mech suit. It’s launching sometime in 2023 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Steam, and Game Pass.

Other games revealed include the beautiful title Flock, which looks like a multiplayer title about collecting cute flying creatures, and an unnamed new game from Keita Takahashi, the creator of Katamari Damacy.

Various updates

Annapurna also highlighted several developers working on new projects with its support. These include Cardboard Computer, the three-man team behind Kentucky Route Zero, which is currently working on its next game. Other devs include Yarn Owl, which is developing a Zelda-like title; Third Shift, which is working on an adventure game called Forever Ago; and Dreamfell, which is creating an untitled game featuring anthropomorphized animal characters.

Annapurna also revealed updates on its upcoming games. Thirsty Suitors now has a demo on Steam. Hindsight, the contemplative memory title, will launch on August 4. The developers of Outer Wilds promised the Switch port is still in the works, and Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions will launch on September 15 (those who own last-gen copies of the game can upgrade for free).

One surprise reveal was the Steam launch of Hohokum, a 2014 title that was originally a PlayStation exclusive. It launches on PC for the first time today. Other updates include The Pathless (launches on Switch and Xbox in winter), Maquette (launches on Switch and Xbox Game Pass in winter), Solar Ash (launches on Steam on December 6 and on Game Pass in winter) and What Remains of Edith Finch (launched on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S today).
