Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe Demo to be on-hand at EGX London

Two games that aren't sh@%#* and don't suck ass

Screenwave Media , privately owned creator agency and indie game publisher, will present The Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe and an upcoming line-up of games at EGX London, focusing on character-driven narratives, precision platforming, and high accessibility.

This is the first public hands-on demo of The Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe , a remaster featuring rebalanced levels, additional content, and more mayhem. Cinemassacre's James Rolfe and Mike Mattei , the core creative team behind The Angry Video Game Nerd web series, are working directly alongside UK-based original developer, FreakZone Games, to create the definitive version of the games which were initially released in 2013 and 2016 on Steam, Nintendo WiiU, and Nintendo 3DS.

FreakZone Games’ Sam Beddoes will be at the Screenwave Media booth greeting players and press. Screenwave Media will also feature Iron Meat , Eagle Island , and debut Lume and the Shifting Void in the EGX Rezzed Zone.

Iron Meat is a grindhouse gunner featuring finger-blistering platforming pulled straight out of the ’90s from St. Petersburg, Russia-based developer Ivan Suvorov.

In its public pre-alpha debut, Howltide’s Lume and the Shifting Void features Lume - a pizza courier in a sci-fi cyberpop pixel romp as she rids the planet from an ever-growing other-dimensional threat from THE VOID. Armed with her trusty(?) & experimental Holostrikers -blast, punch, dash, and blink your way through legions of ethereal threats to stop a catastrophe!

Eagle Island , the MomoCon 2019 Indie Awards Showcase-winning rogue-like platformer, launched in July 2019 on Nintendo Switch and PC, recently released it’s “Free-For-Owl” community update. Eagle Island both celebrates and innovates on the platforming genre with it’s uniquely generated worlds and falconry-inspired gameplay mechanics.

Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe will include reworked visuals and gameplay for the first game, but also retains the original layouts

Play the new or old version

It sounds like the developer for Angry Video Game Nerd I & II Deluxe is out to make these versions of the games the best ones yet. In an interview with Dtoid, Sam Beddoes of Freakzone Games pointed out that the first game in the two-game lineup is getting a lot of revamping. That said, if you don't like the changes to mechanics and difficulty, you can still play things as they were in the original release.

"My intent is to make a game that's hard, that stays true to the kinds of scab-picking frustration that 'The Nerd' expresses so well in his videos, but I can also take criticism. When I hear that players aren't having fun with a game I made, I want to take that feedback and use it to build my skills. This new version of AVGN Adventures has a lot of improvements, both visually and technically. It's still hard. It's just hard in a more fun way, at least in my opinion. And if you liked the original level designs, you can play it that way too. Giving players options is always a good thing."
