The 5 best games from the Guerrilla Collective 2022 showcase

The 5 best games from the Guerrilla Collective 2022 showcase
Written by admin_3fxxacau

This year’s Guerrilla Games showcase had trailers for 60 games or something, and no woman can play 60 games. Who do you think I am, Santa? You think I can slow down time to infinity when I need to? So I gave you a quick overview of the games that caught my attention this time. There is action, horror and puzzles. Fun for the whole family!

Needless to say (although I will say so) that this is a very subjective list, and that’s not to say that every other game featured was bad at all. I recommend you take a look at Steam event page for a longer (but still not exhaustive) list. But it will give you a starting point!

witch strandings

What is that? Up and down forest and mushroom black magic adventure
That he has done? Strange scaffolding, modern wolf
When is it coming out? July 7, 2022

It’s a weird thing, right off the bat. It’s brand new, and it comes from Strange Scaffold (the studio of Xalavier Nelson Jr., who, revelation, wrote a lot for us). You explore a forest from top to bottom, a grid perspective to work your way through it and sort of decide what you want to do with it. There are some neat things to do with the way the slider controls, as I’m told “use your mouse to slide fast through the raging rapids or tread lightly to avoid being swallowed by the quicksand – when you decide to ‘make it a better place or strangle it.” Read Katharine’s great interview with Xalavier to learn more about it.

The fridge is red

What is that? Device-Based Retro Horror Anthology
That he has done? 5 word team, tinyBuild
When is it coming out? To be determined

I already wrote about it tonight Because I thought it looked pretty cool. I’m into horror anthologies and really like the dirty, retro style of this one. Plus, the angle of the fridge is weird and cool, right?

Greed

What is that? Ugly and charming RPG where you seem to be playing the role of a Monty Python character? ?
That he has done? Black Tower Basement, Nordcurrent Labs
When is it coming out? Coming

Honestly, I don’t know exactly what that is – like, I know it’s an RPG where you get more and more glorious loot and fight incredibly disturbing monsters, and I know you do everything with your mouse . But I do not know what it is. I can tell you one thing sure as mustard, though: I love it when someone puts a lot of effort into being able to create amazing, beautiful things with 2D pixelart, and then create absolute monstrosities. Face God and back to hell, my friends.

The last worker

What is that? Story-rich adventure on Amazon’s endgame
That he has done?Oiffy, Wolf & Wood Interactive Ltd, Wired Productions
When is it coming out? 2022

In this late-stage capitalism sim (with a weirdly stacked cast of actors that I really like), you play as the last human worker in an otherwise automated warehouse of talking robots. We’re promised “rich characters played by an all-star cast in a story filled with heartfelt drama, biting satire, and intense action” and “hand-painted 3D art” but I’m here for the union, the friends.

Beasts tape

What is that? Pokémon but you create your own monsters by breaking two things together
That he has done? Studio Bytten, Raw Fury
When is it coming out? Coming

Just a few weeks ago I was on our podcast talking about how I wish you could mash two things together and get a third, new one! In Cassette Beasts, an RPG adventure in the same vein as Pokémon, you build your gang of battle pets by combining two of the 120 creature sprites on offer. I have to say I’m thrilled with the possibilities with this one.
