Future of Play – Everything Announced at the Toonami-Inspired Showcase
Glitch, a creator-led co-op-owned video game fund has hosted its first Future of Play event today showcasing several stylish games.
The Future of Play event was staged to evoke the Toonami TOM segments of yesteryear, complete with a virtual host (V-tuber) named Melios. Wait, does that mean TOM was a V-tuber?
Regardless, here are some highlights from the Future of Play event, including trailers.
Virtuoso Neo Media
Virtuoso Neo Media is an indie studio with a slate of upcoming, arcade-style games reimagined for modern times. This includes ‘Radminton’ a gonzo take on old arcade-sports games and badminton; the F-Zero-inspired Killer Auto, and a 3D shooter called Zodiac Double X Neo.
Sephonie is a 3D platformer set on the eponymous Sephonie Island, a massive cave network and home to unidentified species. Three Asian researchers will be able to explore the island using parkour-style traversal while experiencing a story about human nature and friendship. The developers include Marina Kittaka and Melos Han-Tani who previously worked together on Anodyne 1 & 2.
Annie Available Now on Skullgirls 2nd Encore
Skullgirls was set to receive its first DLC character of 2021 in May with Annie. But she was delayed due to an extended balance and tuning test. But Annie is available now as DLC on the Steam, iOS, and Android versions of Skullgirls 2nd Encore.
Annie is also included in the season pass along with three more characters. One of them is Umbrella who is slated to be released in 2021 also.
Future of Play shared a new trailer for Love Shore, a narrative-driven game set in a future where a fertility crisis has forced humanity to begin creating cyborg humans to build out the population. A company called Life S. Incorporated builds S. Humans, artificial humans with souls of their own. You’ll play as one of two S.Humans in a story RPG with over 25 possible endings and 8 different storylines.
Not a lot is known of Hellbent but its first trailer shows two bros with attitude hanging out in the subway and ready to fight giant rats. Good for them.
