The EGX Rezzed Digital event is over, but the related Steam page remains online at time of writing. It highlights a bunch of games both upcoming and released, and while the vast majority don’t seem to have demos, sadly, it’s a varied selection that deserves a look.
Among the upcoming stuff are sequels to familiar titles, like Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break and Desperados 3. There are also 2D action-platformers like Neon Abyss, puzzle games that tackle deep themes like The Almost Gone, and Shell Corp, a game about eggs.
For me, the most interesting-looking games (all upcoming) are:
A Metroidvania game set in a digital realm called the Mainframe, with the developers providing a branching story in addition to combat, platforming, and hacking.
Single-player adventure that takes you beneath the ocean of a near-future Earth.
A survival city-builder set on a ring-world, with dice and dice-rolling being a major part of the game.
A psychological horror game set in the town of Dormont where you have to manage your sanity and choose to help or abandon the citizens you meet.
Made by a single guy, this is an open world fantasy RPG where you engage in aerial battles with large airships, creatures like flying beetles and manta rays, and rival Falconeers like yourself.
A “semi-auto-biographical point and click game” about two recent university graduates in the UK, who are preparing to move out of the flat they’ve shared for a year.
