Devolver Direct returns for E3 2021

Indie game label Devolver Digital will be broadcasting another of the annual high-concept art pieces that serve as trailers for its upcoming games this year. Devolver Direct 2021 will be part of the Summer Game Fest, which is a set of livestreams that overlaps with E3 yet is somehow meaningfully distinct from it for branding purposes, and you'll be able to watch it on Saturday, June 12 at 1:30pm PT.

The stream is embedded above, and you can find it on Twitch here.

Last year's Devolver Direct included trailers for Shadow Warrior 3, Serious Sam 4, Fall Guys, Carrion, and Olija in between the latest developments in the corporate mythology of the Devolver Cinematic Universe, and ended with the surprise release of a game about it called Devolverland Expo for free

How Devolver is to follow that is anybody's guess, though we expect to see more of Phantom Abyss, which is first-person Indiana Jones with asynchronous multiplayer. It's worth noting that the official Hotline Miami account tweeted a link to a Steam sale with the words "Grab Hotline Miami 1 and 2 for 75% off and get Hotline Miami 3 for free." This was followed five minutes later by a tweet that said, "There is no Hotline Miami 3." Whether that's trolling or a hint is anyone's guess.

Check a look at the rest of the E3 schedule for 2021, and catch up on the Devolver-verse with the embedded videos below.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. 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.
