Everything announced at Annapurna Interactive Showcase 2022

Hot off the heals of the well-received Stray, Annapurna Interactive held its second annual showcase today so its fans could see what indie games the publisher has in store. Annapurna Interactive Showcase 2022 was a presentation full of neat game reveals, port announcements, and developer partnership confirmations. We’ve rounded everything Annapurna Interactive highlighted here, so you can make sure you didn’t miss anything in the show. 

Thirsty Suitors still looks great

The showcase kicked off with another look at the gameplay of Thirsty Suitors, which recently won a best in show award at this year’s Tribeca Festival. The game’s quirky dating sim meets turn-based RPG meets skating game premise looks like a joy to experience. We got a look at some of the player’s funnier attacks, like calling their ex’s mom. Unfortunately, Thirsty Suitors still has no release date.

Hindsight gives off Before Your Eyes vibes

We got a new trailer and an August 4 release date for Hindsight, a game about a woman remembering her life by viewing memories through objects in the game’s world. Its premise and even gameplay concept are reminiscent of Before Your Eyes, which just came to mobile via Netflix. If you enjoyed that game, you may want to also play Hindsight when it launches early next month. 

Kentucky Route Zero developers tease new game

Kentucky Route Zero is one of the most acclaimed narrative adventure games from the last decade, and Annapurna Interactive is publishing its developer’s next game. The developers at Cardboard Computer showed up to reflect on Kentucky Route Zero’s development and tease their new project. We don’t know much about it yet though, just that it will be funnier than Kentucky Route Zero, focus on performance and animations, and feature a dog.

Bounty Star: The Morose Tale of Graveyard Clem announced

Bounty Star: The Morose Tale of Graveyard Clem is an atypical Annapurna Interactive game because it’s a western-themed action game where players get to pilot a giant mech as a bounty hunter. Still, it looks like a lot of fun and will release through Xbox Game Pass and on PS4, PS5, and Steam in 2023.

Yarn Owl is making a game inspired by A Link to the Past

Annapurna Interactive put the spotlight on a small two-person team at Yarn Owl for a bit during the presentation. They are a small, two-person team working on a game inspired by The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. We can’t wait to learn more about this game when the time is right, as the development builds shown off in the dev diary looked promising.

Third Shift announces Forever Ago

Next, we got to see a dev diary from Third Shift, who are working on a game called Forever Ago. This narrative game is about an old man exploring and taking pictures of the United States’ diverse landscapes and is based on a real trip one of the developers took.

Hollow Ponds and Richard Hogg announce Flock

Richard Hogg, the developer behind Wilmot’s Warehouse, and I Am Dead developers Hollow Ponds confirmed that they are working together to make a new game called Flock. Its flow is reminiscent of thatgamecompany’s Flower, as players fly around a beautiful landscape and create a large flock of flying creatures. It supports co-op too, so players can fly around with their friends. Flock is in development for  PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Steam. It will be on Xbox Game Pass at launch in 2023.

Katamari Damacy’s creator teases a new game

Annapurna Interactive confirmed that it is once again working with Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi on a new game that is still untitled. The teaser doesn’t show much more than a kid snoring while asleep, but knowing Keita Takahashi this game will probably be quite weird. It does not appear that Wattam developer Funomena is involved following the recent controversy

Annapurna is publishing Dreamfeel’s next game

If Found developer Dreamfeel is working on a new game, and Annapurna Interactive is publishing it. During the dev diary focused on the studio, we learned a little bit about some of the developers on the team and that their next game is set in a fantasy version of Ireland and will feature cat people as the primary characters. 

Annapurna is publishing The Lost Wild

To conclude the showcase, Annapurna Interactive confirmed that it will publish The Lost Wild, a first-person survival-horror game that had a viral teaser trailer last year, and features players trying to survive in the wilderness against dinosaurs. While it doesn’t have a release date or platforms outside of Steam just yet, the game’s visuals look amazing, and its premise shows a lot of promise in lieu of a new Dino Crisis or Jurassic Park game.

Ports galore

Best gaming monitor Cyber Monday deals — from $130
Digital Trends Best Black Friday Gaming Monitor Deals

If you're building a gaming PC with a cutting-edge CPU and GPU, you should pair it with a gaming monitor that will give justice to the awesome processing power. If a new gaming monitor is on your Cyber Monday deals shopping list, you don't have to go anywhere else because we've gathered all the best deals we could find from brands like Samsung, Lenovo, Razer and more.
Best 165Hz gaming monitor Cyber Monday deals

A monitor's refresh rate determines how often the images on the screen are updated -- the higher the refresh rate, the smoother your gameplay will be. A 165Hz refresh rate is just above our computer monitor buying guide's recommended range of 120Hz to 144Hz, and it's great for gamers on a budget as you'll still be getting proper support for your video games' higher frame rates. Size and resolution are other factors to consider though, so you should be going for the monitor that your budget allows.
