The Future Games show is more of a low-key show than the Summer Game Fest and its pre- and post-Xbox showcases. But this year’s show was still a treat and, like SGF, it seems to have a disproportionate representation of the same kind of game. At SGF, it was scientifically terrifying. At the Future Games show, it was Sim Games.
One of the first games announced during the show was an Alaskan truck simulator, which is exactly what the title says. This was followed by Brumaster, a beer-brewing simulator; Autopsy simulator; Airport sim; Potion Permit, a magic potion sim; F1 Manager 2022, and maybe at least one more I’m forgetting.
It was also Sims’ various offers. Most of them are very self-explanatory, and at least it is unlikely that I would make a mistake for each other (Ahem, SGF). Potion Permit and Brumaster had the most visual attraction, but Alaskan Truck Sim is the closest runner-up.
Other games in the showcase include items like Bright Memory Infinit, which received a new trailer announcing ports for the PS5 and Switch; Sword-wielding robots starring Morbid Metal, a hack-n-slash rogulite; Serial Cleaners, a stealth game about cleaning up mob hits; And Steam release of Deadly Premonition 2.
The showcase also featured a special showcase specifically for games by Ukrainian developers. Games include titles such as Puzzle for Cleaf, Puzzle Adventure Game; Zero Losses, a spooky driving game inspired by the Russo-Ukrainian War; And Ferlanders, the turn-based colony sim set on Mars – hey look, another sim!
