Everything Announced at the Future Games Show

Reading Time: 3 minutes

For those unfamiliar with the Future Games Show, it’s a console centric E3 showcase put on by GamesRadar that is meant as a counter to the PC Gaming Show. It is hosted by popular video game voice actors Laura Bailey and Troy Baker. As it is scheduled relatively late this year, it only had a few world premieres. There were about 60 games in the following list so I will limit my descriptions of each to make for rapid reading. I have also omitted release dates as most didn’t have definite ones, as the title of the show implies.

Instinction: Third Person Shooter With Dinosaurs

Grow Song of the Evertree : Sandbox Town Builder

Overall, I was impressed by the amount and diversity of the games in the Future Games Show. I particularly liked the virtual show floor with demos of many of the games to play. I was most interested in Lake, KeyWe, Chernobylite, and Harold Halibut which was the only one of the four I hadn’t previously seen. I enjoyed seeing a side activity in Lake, which involves selecting an 80s movie to see, though I would pick differently than in the video. The KeyWe gameplay of the changes seasons seemed very fun yet frantic. Chernobylite is just a beautiful game and it’s a treat anytime I get to see new areas of the game. Finally, it was fascinating to see how the developers brought Harold Halibut to life with its unique art style. What did you think of the showcase? Let us know on Twiter @rapidreviewsuk
