The 2020 Devolver Direct digital showcase has its date, time, and streaming location now set. The show will air on Saturday, July 11 at 12:00 p.m. PT over on Twitch. The event stream will come in the form of a pre-recorded show, which Devolver sarcastically promises to screw up. That’s a relief.

As far as what to expect, quite a few games immediately come to mind. Serious Sam 4, Carrion, and Blightbound were all teased recently. These should make appearances with fresh gameplay and more details. Devolver Digital also made a few promises back in June about revealing release dates, announcing new projects, and delivering updates on known projects.

Serious Sam 4, the first-person shooter in development over at Croteam studios, should prove particularly exciting. Our own Kevin Carignan recently had the chance to interview Davor Hunski, the CCO of Croteam. They talked about how the latest entry fits into the franchise and what makes Serious Sam 4 better than its predecessors.
Another game that should catch people’s attention is Carrion. This 2D is a reverse horror game, as it puts players in control of a terrifying creature. “Stalk and consume those that imprisoned you to spread fear and panic throughout the facility.” It sounds like a delightful change of pace from the norm of being hunted by zombies, demons, and other baddies.
The Devolver Direct event usually takes place at E3, but it went digital this year for safety reasons that we’re all familiar by now. Last year’s show was quite something and should be a good indication of the antics to expect this year. If you missed it, go ahead and set aside 11 hours of your time to watch that whole thing. The publisher guarantees it’s worth every second.
Devolver Digital is proud to be weird, and it’s certainly creative, too. Make sure to mark your calendars for July 11 to see what’s next for “the seventh-best indie games label.”
