Plague Tale, Cuphead, and more will be at Tribeca Fest 2022

This year’s Tribeca Fest will once again feature video games as official selections. The 2022 lineup features nine games in total, including some heavy hitters like A Plague Tale: Requiem and Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course.

Tribeca Fest, traditionally known as a film festival, began including games as official selections last summer. Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Sable, and more were featured at the 2021 show with playable demos. This year’s standout Norco was selected as the winner among the crop.

This year’s show features some bigger releases by comparison. Most notably, A Plague Tale: Requiem will be be present at the show. The AA game has been a tentpole of Microsoft’s recent showcases, including its E3 2022 event (though it’ll be available on all platforms). Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is a surprise too, as its a DLC package rather than a full release.

Other noteworthy games include Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, Her Story creator Sam Barlow’s new game Immortality, and Thirsty Suitors, one of publisher Annapurna Interactive’s upcoming indies. The list also includes one previously unannounced game: American Arcadia, a new title from the team behind Call of the Sea.

Here’s the full list of selections.

  • American Arcadia — Out of the Blue
  • As Dusk Falls — INTERIOR/NIGHT
  • The Cub — Demagog Studio
  • Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course — Studio MDHR
  • Immortality — Half Mermaid
  • Oxenfree II: Lost Signals — Night School Studio
  • A Plague Tale: Requiem — Asobo Studio
  • Thirsty Suitors — Outerloop Games
  • Venba — Visai Games

While the Tribeca Fest will feature an in-person component where attendees can play the games, it’ll also offer a digital experience with demos available via Parsec. Tribeca Fest will also host another showcase giving details on each game as part of this year’s Summer Game Fest.

This year’s Tribeca Fest begins on June 8 and runs until June 19.

I didn’t quite love Cuphead as much as I wanted to when it launched in 2017 -- you could say it wasn’t my cup of tea, if you must. I loved its old-timey cartoon art style, but its crushing difficulty made it hard to love. I just wanted to admire all the gorgeous hand-drawn animations, but the skill barrier made me bounce off the game before I got to the end.

With 2022’s gaming lineup looking a little anemic after Starfield’s big delay, A Plague Tale: Requiem is now a “main stage” game. While it doesn’t have an official release date yet, it's supposed to launch this year during a notably slow season for games. If that holds true, the “AA” stealth action sequel will get a holiday season spotlight that’s usually reserved for bigger budget games with franchise star power behind them.
