The past year has been good for publisher Annapurna Interactive: It’s seen success with developer Ben Esposito’s Neon White, followed by BlueTwelve’s breakout cat game Stray. Annapurna’s now looking forward to what’s coming next, focusing on its slate of upcoming games during its annual Annapurna Interactive Showcase on Thursday.
Over the course of a half-hour, Annapurna Interactive detailed some of its already announced games, like Hindsight and Thirsty Suitors, alongside announcements for new games from the likes of Keita Takahashi and Kentucky Route Zero developer Cardboard Computer.
Missed the showcase? Here’s what was announced.
Thirsty Suitors developer Outerloop Games kicked off the Annapurna Interactive Showcase by demoing how the game’s combat and narrative work together through an innovative fighting scene. Thirsty Suitors is coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. A demo is available now on Steam. It’ll be on Game Pass at launch.
