Devolver Digital plan another E3 anti-conference

For the last two years indie publisher Devolver Digital have been presenting their own conference during but outside of E3. It's been a highlight, with host Nina Struthers (their fictional "chief synergy officer") shouting buzzwords and parodying the awkward intensity unique to these events. Sometimes they even show games, with trailers for My Friend Pedro, Metal Wolf Chaos, and Scum appearing last year.

Devolver have announced via Twitter that they and presumably Nina will be back for E3 2019. The tweet features a gif of the Robocop homage that ended last year's effort, which suggests that a cybernetically enhanced version of their shouty executive will return. The Devolver Digital Cinematic Universe is starting to get complicated.

Whether or not we see anything new of Devolver's upcoming games like Eitr or The Talos Principle 2, it's bound to be entertaining. It'll be on Sunday, June 9, at 7pm PST.

A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
