Devolver Digital’s big fancy Press Conference on E3 2017
These are the guys behind Hotline Miami and numerous Adult Swim games and just from that fact, any fan would know this could get weird.
The show starts off with a mesmerizing “Devolver Digital” jingle which is very appreciated, then “Chief Synergy Officer” Nina Struthers starts with a parody of the big stage conferences from the likes of EA and Xbox.
Joking aside, Devolver actually showcased two titles during the not-so-serious show.
RUINER is a brutal action shooter set in the year 2091 in the cyber metropolis Rengkok. A wired sociopath lashes out against a corrupt system to uncover the truth and retrieve his kidnapped brother under the guidance of a secretive hacker friend. Combine preternatural reflexes, augmented tools, and the arsenal of fallen foes to tear down and dismantle the corporate titans of virtuality dealers at HEAVEN.
Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour
Battle through beautiful Mediterranean locales, dangerous biological weapons labs and even high-tech moon bases as a one-man wrecking crew or in four-player online cooperative for maximum chaos! Dominate the chaotic Survival and Versus modes or make your own mods, modes, and even total conversions with the included game editor.
It was just the same trailer from when they revealed it a few months back. Aside from the trailer the game will be following Devolver’s top-Down twin-stick shooter formula following the success of Hotline Miami 1 and 2 and Enter the Gungeon.
Well, not really, the segment was just a fake following the Miscommunication segment we can see sudden flashes of games like Absolver, The Swords of Ditto, APE OUT, Ruiner and Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour.
The satirical dialogue and generic feeling of jump cuts to the audience felt at home coming from Devolver Digital, overall the show was passable and it was kinda worth my time.
