2nd Annual Annapurna Interactive Showcase Recap

Annapurna Interactive held its second annual showcase on Thursday, July 28th, 2022. Approximately 25 minutes in length, the stream celebrated indie developers they partnered with, provided updates to existing games, and announced new titles. If you missed it, below is a bite-sized recap.

New Game Announcements

There were several game reveals, including Bounty Star: The Morose Tale of Graveyard Clem. This title involves a post-apocalypse, mech-filled world where you play as a rough, tough ex-soldier named Clem. This game will release sometime in 2023 on Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam.

Annapurna also teased a future game by the makers of Katamari Damacy. We know little about it, and details are sure to follow in the future.

Annapurna is also launching a PlayStation cult classic on Steam–Hohokum. The premise is simple–navigate several colorful worlds as this snake-like kite, and it’s available on PC now!

Finally, we see a heart-pounding first person survival horror game in The Lost Wild. This game reveal shows the player lost in the jungle filled with dinosaurs. Need that Jurassic Park fix? Look no further than The Lost Wild–available to wishlist on Steam.

Developer Spotlights

  • Cardboard Computer: This indie dev team of three is known for Kentucky Route Zero. They discuss how they came to be and their ambitions during their next project–one that will contain more lively animation. We wish you the best of luck and can’t wait to see it!
  • Yarn Owl: One of the founders of Yarn Owl was heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. They are in process of creating their first game! Good luck!
