Over time, Devolver Digital has established its brand reputation as a gaming publisher that favors eccentric marketing strategies for its games. In light of this, it has declared the launch of a Devolver Delayed event, deemed as the “initial showcase recognizing games valiantly transitioning into 2024.” It appears Devolver plans to strike a balance by shifting a few game releases to a later date while simultaneously mocking the constant cycle of game postponements. The live stream can be viewed at 11AM ET on August 7th, the link to which is provided below.
The publishing company has an array of fascinating games planned to release throughout the remainder of the year. I’m particularly excited about Skate Story, a game that has already astounded many with its supremely stylish graphics, so it would be disappointing if its release is deferred to 2024. Similarly, I eagerly anticipate The Plucky Squire, an endearing adventure game that involves alternating between 2D and 3D settings.
Devolver also has other titles scheduled for 2023, like the “harsh noir-punk action-adventure” Gunbrella. The publisher has reassured that this game’s launch won’t be postponed and will be featured in the showcase. The future of other games like Wizard with a Gun, The Talos Principle 2, and Pepper Grinder is yet to be confirmed. Nonetheless, Baby Steps, appearing to be a 3D rendition of QWOP with a man-baby as the main character, has already been confirmed to release in 2024.
