Future Games Show, June 11 2022

Are you still with me? This is the fourth of the four showcases spanning five hours, and if you’ve been watching or even reading along I’m willing to bet your brain is also swimming with new information that will swim right back out again soon. Not-E3 can be really overwhelming, which is why I like recapping the events: it gives me something to look back on to take note of upcoming titles that I absolutely can’t miss. Anyway, the Future Games Show is always a favourite of mine, mostly because it features innovative titles and things we don’t see elsewhere.

Game Highlights

Luto

A psychological horror game that explores grief and loss in a familiar environment. The worst part of hell isn’t the flames… it’s the hopelessness. I’m trying to hide away from this trailer, focusing my eyes elsewhere so I won’t get jump-scared. It is launching this year for PC and PlayStation.

Tray Racers

Grab your tray, it’s race time! I’ve been using the word cute a lot, but it’s not my fault this is cute. Slide down sand, over water. Customise your character. It’s set in an apocalyptic world. The game features online multiplayer. It will be released in 2023 for PC and Nintendo Switch.

Turbo Golf Racing

Who wants to play boring old golf? How about playing with disco balls and flying cars! Up to eight players can compete. It’s like Mario Kart plus Mario Golf, minus the Mario. There are 30 levels and over 100 items to unlock. It will be released for PC in Early Access on August 4.

Games from Ukraine

  • Puzzles for Clef
  • Zero Losses
  • This Rain Will Never End
  • Farlanders
  • Through the Nightmares

Lost in Play

A puzzle adventure that follows two siblings lost in their own imagination. The developers liken it to Gravity Falls, which I’ve never seen but I know I’m interested in this! Their imaginations get dark… Lost in Play will be released for PC and Nintendo Switch on August 10.

Brewmaster

Brew your dream beer. Mmmm beer; I think we could all use one (or many) right now. Customise your brews and workspace. Get creative in creative mode. I’ve played beer simulators before but this look completely different from those (and more specific). It’s coming to PC and consoles this year.

Enemy of the State

The world is divided between those with money and those that will get it at any cost. There are also those who just fight for one side or the other. Unknown heroes and villains. The best way to get rich is sometimes to get remembered. Each fight will be a fight for your life. It is coming in 2024 to PC and consoles.

Tinykin

Welcome to the world of Tinykin! It’s a fascinating place. They are extraordinary little creatures. They don’t pose a threat on their own, but they’re exemplary when working together. The green ones are great at reaching new heights. The blue ones contain a powerful electric current. Oh, there’s a red one. It’s got a fiery temper! It will be released on August 30 for PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.

Serial Cleaners

Four people, sharing a table on New Years Eve. A plate full of troubling memories and a bitter taste of regret. Meet Lati, Psycho, Viper, and another one that I missed (sorry). The past they share is what stands in way of redemption. If you remember the 90s differently, it’s because of them. It will be released on September 22 for PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series, and Xbox One.
