Just when you think there are plenty of games out right now, there are more titles waiting in the wings when you least expect it. At the recent Day of the Devs 2018 event held in San Francisco, CA, hosted once again by DoubleFine Games and iam8Bit, we got to explore the venue and saw dozens of games planned for release on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. In addition to hosting Spelunky 2, the Day of the Devs event also offered visitors the chance to play Justin Roiland’s new title Trevor Saves The Universe and Kingdom Hearts III, which releases on January 29, 2019.
Much like last year’s roundup, we’ve pulled together a list of some promising titles that not only surprised us with their cleverness but impressed us with their originality and quirkiness. Though Day of the Devs 2018 offered well over 50 titles to try out, we’ve selected 10 games that really stuck out for us. While Kingdom Hearts III is certainly an impressive game, we felt it was better to highlight some games that haven’t really been given the spotlight yet.Here’s our list of exciting games we saw during Day of the Devs 2018.
And yes, in case you were wondering, Gang Beasts also made an appearance. As a staple of every DoubleFine event, the bizarre party-brawler game has become one title you can always expect to see at one of San Francisco’s many other gaming events as well. It’s currently out now on PC and PS4.
