From Spelunky to Among Us, There Were Plenty of Great Announcements
While many Hollow Knight fans were disappointed by the lack of Silk Song content in yesterday’s Indie World Showcase, there were still plenty of fantastic announcements made in the 18 minute indie game presentation. You may have seen us post about a couple of the more major announcements already, but for those not looking to read about any of the games in-depth, we hope to sum up the presentation right here. That being said, you should definitely go read our other stories if any of the announcements particularly strike your interest.
The presentation opened with the announcement that both Spelunky and Spelunky 2 will be making their Nintendo debut on Switch next summer. The new and classic roguelike games will feature the same gameplays fans of the series have come to know, as well as multiplayer options for those looking to play with friends.
Cat lovers will be excited to hear that the presentation included not just one, but two, cat themed titles. The first is Fisti-Fluffs–take control of a wild kitty home alone while your owners are gone, you’ll be yelling cat fight as you take on other cats in an all out fight. Run your very own cat café in Calico, a new title by White Thorn Games. Customize the look of your café while finding and caring for a variety of fluffy friends. Fisti-Fluffs is coming early 2021, while Calico is available now.
Very Very Valet is a silly multiplayer game tasking you with parking a customer’s car, if only it was going to be that easy. Very Very Valet is coming early 2021. Next up came Tunche, a new beat em’ up with local co-op options developed by Hypetrain Digital.
Cyber Shadow is an action platformer being made by Mechanical Head. It’s coming to Nintendo Switch early next year on January 26, 2021.
