Devolver Digital’s signature marketing spectacle, the Devolver Direct, returns this year with a smattering of new reveals and a whooole new weirdly wonderful layer for its cinematic universe. If there’s a film equivalent to a seven-layer burrito, damn are we ever getting close.
Amid a groundbreaking new level of tedious 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 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 [http://twitch.tv/twitchgaming] 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.
Devolver Digital fans and detractors can catch up on the unnecessarily intricate narrative to the ongoing saga by watching last year’s Devolver Direct and begin their uninformed speculation at on Discord [http://discord.gg/devolverdigital].
Be sure to join the masses July 11 at noon PT for announcements, sweet sweet gameplay, and to hopefully catch an appearance from our favorite chief synergy officer.
