Delays push Skate Story & Four Other Devolver Games to 2024

What To Know

  • Both Stick it to the Stickman and Anger Foot emerge as the fruits of labor from Free Lives, the studio renowned for works like Broforce, Gorn, and Genital Jousting, and a long-standing collaborator with Devolver.
  • Notably, a subset of the publisher’s games remain steadfast in their quest for a 2023 release, inclusive of Gunbrella, Wizard with a Gun, KarmaZoo, The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood, and most notably, in my estimation, The Talos Principle II.
  • A continuation of the esteemed 2014 title by Croteam, The Talos Principle II promises an amplified array of laser-centered puzzles, philosophical ponderings, and existential contemplations, all poised for introduction in the year 2023 across PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S platforms.
  • Fashioned by Deconstructeam, the Spanish studio celebrated for works such as Gods Will Be Watching and The Red Strings Club, this creation has already kindled my enthusiasm, as it permits me to craft tarot decks and engage in flirtatious exchanges with immortal entities.

Refer to Devolver Digital as you wish, with the sole exception of labeling it a deceiver. The debut of Devolver Digital’s “Devolver Delayed” exhibition fulfilled its commitment, showcasing a collection of five games whose planned launches have been extended from 2023 to the year 2024.

Admittedly, this situation suggests that Devolver’s initial announcements regarding these games were somewhat disingenuous; nonetheless, let us reside in the present moment.

Now, allow me to present the roster of Devolver games slated for the upcoming year, free from the exuberant corporate cheer that underscored the physical presentation: Skate Story, The Plucky Squire, Stick it to the Stickman, Anger Foot, and Pepper Grinder.

Of these, Skate Story proves to be the most difficult delay to reconcile with, from a personal perspective. Conceived by the creative mind of Sam Eng, Skate Story stands as a masterfully stylized skateboarding endeavor set within a dimly illuminated, neon-painted dystopia, starring a glass-formed demon.

Its appearance is both hallucinogenic and high-speed, and my anticipation for experiencing it during this year was considerable. I must now await its arrival on PC in 2024, with the ability to add it to my Steam wishlist.

Both Stick it to the Stickman and Anger Foot emerge as the fruits of labor from Free Lives, the studio renowned for works like Broforce, Gorn, and Genital Jousting, and a long-standing collaborator with Devolver.

These aforementioned titles, Stickman and Anger Foot, are destined for PC release in the subsequent year and are presently available for inclusion on wishlists.

Devolver Digital’s “Devolver Delayed” Exhibition

The charming platforming escapade named The Plucky Squire, distinguished by its alternating use of 2D and 3D visuals, captivates the eye. This creative endeavor hails from the innovation of All Possible Futures and will grace the realms of PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch (in the year 2024, as one would expect).

Lastly, we come to Pepper Grinder, a 2D platformer showcasing a protagonist equipped with a sizable drill. The title’s development rests within the capable hands of Oregon-based studio Ahr Ech, targeting both PC and Switch platforms.

Ultimately, the Devolver Delayed presentation delivered a measure of solace. Notably, a subset of the publisher’s games remain steadfast in their quest for a 2023 release, inclusive of Gunbrella, Wizard with a Gun, KarmaZoo, The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood, and most notably, in my estimation, The Talos Principle II.

A continuation of the esteemed 2014 title by Croteam, The Talos Principle II promises an amplified array of laser-centered puzzles, philosophical ponderings, and existential contemplations, all poised for introduction in the year 2023 across PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S platforms.

As it happens, The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood is slated for unveiling on August 16, a mere week away from the present. Fashioned by Deconstructeam, the Spanish studio celebrated for works such as Gods Will Be Watching and The Red Strings Club, this creation has already kindled my enthusiasm, as it permits me to craft tarot decks and engage in flirtatious exchanges with immortal entities.
