E3 2020 might have been officially cancelled, but that doesn't mean there won't be any other announcements taking place. In its place this year are a bunch of online events. The latest one announced is the Indie Showcase by The Escapist, in partnership with GOG.com.
This digital event will run from 11th June until 14th June and promises to showcase "over 70 different indie games" from developers all around the world. It'll kick off on the 11th with a "direct" style showcase on YouTube - featuring reveals, lots of gameplay, and developer diaries.
From 12th - 14th June there'll be post-show coverage on both YouTube and Twitch - along with in-depth hands-on demos, pre-recorded gameplay, videos, and developer interviews.
Given the number of games that will be shared, we expect at least some of them to be announced for the Nintendo Switch. Will you be tuning in? Comment down below.
The Escapist is still around?!?
70 seems like too much. Quality over quantity please.
I watched yesterday wholesale direct and, after 20 minutes, that was impossible to watch. Every game sucks. An original nintendo direct is really different
Good thing to know that gaming news won’t be quiet
@mesome713 It's across 4 days with developers all over the world. Not saying they'll all be amazing games, but 70 seems pretty reasonable. It's not like they're all from a single developer.
@Kazran14 Very true, just scared having so many will cause most to be lost. But your right, this is most likely the best way to shine light on them.
Without something like this, less people would be able to hear the word.
only worth it if Yahtzee roasts each of them in turn
Hoping for video games and not avant-garde art house installations that lack playability or structure. There's too much rubbish indie stuff on the Nintendo shop.
The Guerilla showcase is the most interesting of these summer shebangs to me. But I’ll keep an eye on this through the news section here. Doesn’t look like that Wholesome Games thing produced much of note...
Nintendo: "They called me a madman..."
I enjoy the escapists output, particularly Zero Punctuation. Not a massive fan of their latest subscription plan though. Hopefully they won't hide or give early access to the showcase behind a pay wall.
Hoping for release dates for all those games with vague summer and fall release windows
The Escapist had 3 things going for them, Zero Punctuation, their forums and Jim Sterling. Jim Sterling left, they banned everyone for anything from their forums, and Zero Punctuations shtick got old.
