Summer Game Fest Will Host Developer Showcase Next Week

GameSpot's Play For All will continue through to July--stay tuned to our coverage of all the E3-like press conferences scheduled throughout the summer.


Summer Game Fest has announced that it is hosting its first Developer Showcase on June 22, starting at 7:30 AM PT / 10:30 AM ET. The showcase will begin with a live performance of Outer Wilds' soundtrack before diving into AAA and indie game reveals at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET.

The stream will feature plenty of games, some of which have already been announced--The Artful Escape, Black Book, Drake Hollow, The Eternal Cylinder, Foregone, Haunted Garage, Knuckle Sandwich, Panzer Paladin, Sea of Stars, Skate Story, Spinch, Starbase, The Night is Grey, and Ynglet.

Summer Game Fest has also confirmed exclusive debuts from developers Longhand Electric and thatgamecompany. Longhand Electric is currently working on Overlook Trail so we may see a new trailer for that, but thatgamecompany hasn't revealed what it's working on following Journey and Sky: Children of the Light. According to a press release, the livestream will also see "a surprise AAA reveal."

Additionally, the stream will showcase games that are made by Gameheads students, highlighting projects developed by low income teens and young adults looking to pursue game design in college or as a career.

This is only the first Developer Showcase planned for Summer Game Fest. A second showcase is currently scheduled for July, which will see reveals from Annapurna Interactive, MWM Interactive, Panic, Team17, ustwo games, and several other studios.

Play For All is continuing on into July.
