Devolver Digital blows minds (and empties wallets) with its E3 press conference

Devolver Digital, proud publisher of games where you can romance birds and kill everyone in your kingdom through Tinder, recently released its full press conference for E3 online. “Presented live” last night, the conference details some of its most anticipated projects going forward. Oh, and I guess trailers for a couple of games, but that’s neither here nor there.

Highlighting “tomorrow’s unethical business practices today!”, Devolver Digital opened with Nina Struthers, Chief Synergy Officer for the company, who spoke about how the company could earn consumers’ money now.

“This is our first year of bringing you to the very edge of your seats with the very best of what video very games have to offer very and I am very very proud to have you here on this very journey with me,” said Struthers.

Invasion of the body snatchers, or compelling method acting piece?

Promising to blow our minds with new developments, Devolver announced three new features that it will implement in the near future: the Screenpay Option (where you can literally throw money at your computer screen to purchase games, but uh… don’t get too attached to your favorite appendage if you want to use this), Devolver Earliest Access (where you can purchase games the second someone comes up with an idea), and Comment Content Creator (where games can be modified to fit your every whim, no matter how outrageous the request).

Oh yeah, the publisher posted trailers to upcoming games, I suppose. Ruiner is an isometric shooter, where players will have to venture in a futuristic slum in order to survive. Through the help of dozens of weapons, you can obliterate your enemies with time to spare literally flinging money at your screen.

Additionally, Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour was announced. From the creators of Hammerwatch, players can experience a retro version of everyone’s favorite alien slayer as they run and gun through different levels in co-op campaign and survival modes.

With surrealist elements and an ending that you’ll have to see to believe, Devolver Digital’s Press Conference is probably one of the best horror short films in recent memory. Will it win an Academy Award for competing against The Evil Within 2’s trailer for scariest moment of last night? Perhaps, but only time will tell. What are your thoughts on this “probably an ARG” press conference? Post your comments below, and check out more E3 coverage here on Gaming Trend.
