While 2022 was another year without E3, game publishers big and small haven’t stopped releasing tons of hype-filled trailers during the usual summer promotional season. After reviewing Summer Game Fest and the Microsoft/Bethesda Showcase, we spent much of the week watching literally hundreds of trailers as featured in the
Future Games Show
PC gaming show
and many others.
We selected 25 titles whose presentations stood out for one reason or another. Scroll through for a collection of titles we’ll be checking out over the next year or so. And keep an eye out for hands-on insights from our very own Sam Machkovech, who sampled a handful of these games at a Summer Games Fest event earlier this week.
A little to the left
Supposedly a game for organization freaks, A little to the left challenges players to clean up by arranging books, game cartridges, spoons, lampshades and more into beautiful, neat arrangements, while a mischievous cat tries to mix things up again. However, as you make your way through the tidying up, the basic organizational tasks turn into puzzles, which the trailer says are “a little more surreal.” There’s also a “daily tidy delivery” that lets you quickly find new organization puzzles every day.
Agent 64: Spies never die
Platforms: personal computer
Planned release: 2022
Links: Steam (with demo)
This game isn’t subtle when it comes to being directly inspired Goldeye 007, down to its blocky polygons and limited character animations. But this unlicensed spiritual sequel also boasts obvious modern improvements like a smooth frame rate and lack of fog, meaning it should look and play like your nostalgic memories Gold eye rather than, uh, the actual experience of playing N64 Gold eye these days. The ability to “create and share your own campaigns” should ensure plenty of fresh content long after release.
Bramble: The Mountain King
When I saw this trailer, I learned that Nordic folk tales can be path more intense than their American counterparts. blackberry is based on stories designed to keep kids from going too close to water and drowning, and the example here definitely nailed this viewer. The brief snippets of gameplay make it seem like the game is a pretty standard exploration/platformer title, but strong environment and character design still keeps us watching.
In this stylish competitive multiplayer spy game, competitors dress up to overwhelm their opponents and extract key targets in a fun-looking twist on the capture-the-flag concept. The trailer reminds us of games like death loop and Spy Party– or even the little-loved multiplayer parts of Assassin’s Creed Games – in the very best way.
