Devolver Direct announced for July 11th at 12PM Pacific

Amid a groundbreaking new level digital showcases, Devolver Digital aims to raise the bar for overrated marketing videos with this year’s Devolver Direct on July 11 at 12:00PM Pacific US time. The seventh best indie game label will step up to the plate once more and whiff real hard with a live pre-recorded presentation on Twitch and Steam.

This year’s showcase continues the tradition of overpromises with new game reveals, gameplay reveals, release date announcements, and special guests from the industry to help usher in these important marketing bullet points. And it’s nearly all gameplay because that’s what the youths of today demand.

The astonishing misuse of marketing budget will end with a few surprises and game demos available to play by the unwashed masses including Carrion, Disc Room, and an unannounced game. Maybe another game too, who can really tell where this is all leading.

UPDATE: It is with heavy heart that we at Koelnmesse announce an official postponement of gamescom asia to 14 – 17 October 2021.

As optimistic as we were about bringing gamescom asia to life this October, we agreed that the world would not be situationally ready for this to happen. The health and safety of our participants is the top priority.

We have been especially encouraged by the enthusiasm from fans, partners and participants thus far. However, for an inaugural event, we also felt that it was important to give the community the full experience of what an amazing international event would be like, and not anything less.

Please continue to support us through these tough times.

New digital engagements to support the Asian games industry will be shared in the lead up to our refocused efforts on 2021. Let’s create the best gamescom asia next year.
