Five games published by Devolver Digital have been delayed to 2024, as announced in the inaugural Devolver Delayed showcase. Despite this delay, Devolver Digital stands by its promises. The games affected are ‘Skate Story,’ ‘The Plucky Squire,’ ‘Stick it to the Stickman,’ ‘Anger Foot,’ and ‘Pepper Grinder.’
Among these games, ‘Skate Story’ is particularly disappointing to fans as it is a highly stylized skateboarding game with a unique concept of a demon made of glass set in a dark, neon-streaked hellscape. Originally planned for release this year, it will now be available on PC in 2024 and can be added to the Steam wishlist.
Both ‘Stick it to the Stickman’ and ‘Anger Foot,’ created by Free Lives, the studio known for games like ‘Broforce,’ ‘Gorn,’ and ‘Genital Jousting,’ are also delayed until next year for PC, but can be wishlisted right away.
‘The Plucky Squire,’ an adorable platforming adventure with 2D and 3D visuals, will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch in 2024, developed by All Possible Futures.
Lastly, ‘Pepper Grinder,’ a 2D platformer featuring a character with a large drill, is being developed by Ahr Ech and is set to release on PC and Switch.
While some games were delayed, the showcase also offered good news. Several other Devolver Digital games are still on track for a 2023 release, including ‘Gunbrella,’ ‘Wizard with a Gun,’ ‘KarmaZoo,’ ‘The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood,’ and ‘The Talos Principle II.’ The latter, a sequel to the critically acclaimed 2014 game from Croteam, promises to retain its release date and deliver more first-person laser-based puzzles, philosophical exploration, and existential dread for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
As a bonus, ‘The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood,’ developed by Deconstructeam, is arriving on August 16, providing an exciting experience of building tarot decks and engaging with immortal beings.
