Yup. No doubt about it: summer has come and it’s not going away anytime soon. Neither are the games announced at the recent ID@Xbox Summer Game Fest Demo, although the demos? Oh, those are no more. Gone. Forever. So, let’s focus on some groovy upcoming games instead, eh?
- Ato (Tiny Warrior Games)
In Ato, every combat encounter is an intense duel to the death. Perform risky parry maneuvers, bounce off of your opponent, evade their attacks and unlock new abilities to further expand your arsenal of options against your adversaries. Every combat encounter has its own personality and fighting style. Challenge, observe, and overcome each opponent you face as you strive to retrieve your child back from the clan you once served.
- Boxville (Triomatica Games)
The core idea of the game is that it’s not just a game – but also an animated film that you can watch and play at the same time. We designed Boxville’s gameplay with the purpose of taking away your anxiety and stress. You can explore and observe the world without rushing and pressure. The game is full of environmental quests and logical puzzles that we have carefully picked from among hundreds of options.
