Just because E3 2020 is cancelled doesn’t mean everything developers were going to show there has suddenly disappeared. While no digital version of E3 is in the works, other companies and organisations have stepped up with their own virtual events to deliver news on their latest plans and upcoming games.
A digital games showcase called the Wholesome Games Direct aired yesterday, dedicated to cute and colourful games. It put the spotlight on over 50 upcoming indie games that run the gamut from train sims to augmented reality adventures. I want to play them all.
Having trialled the event during The Game Awards last year, Steam’s virtual demo festival is back. But this time, the Summer Edition of the Steam Game Festival is launching the same day E3 2020 would have taken place.
