Summer Game Fest 2022 Recap

Britt Britt (157)

Over the last few years, summer has quickly become a gamer’s favorite time of the year. While the winter holiday season tends to be great for sales, it holds nothing on the game announcements and events held in the warmer months.

Since E3 was cancelled this year, many (and we do mean many) game publishers and developers have announced their own industry events. The Summer Game Fest started in 2020, with a need for a place to showcase new games, technology, and to bring together the video game industry during an awful year.

While you could read our recap of the last E3, this year’s Summer Game Fest featured world premieres, talks with developers, and so much more! Take a look through our recap of the Summer Game Fest 2022!

American Arcadia

by Raw Fury and Out of the Blue Games

Welcome to Arcadia! A 70’s retro-futuristic metropolis where all its citizens enjoy a life of luxury and comfort… unaware that they’re being broadcast live 24/7! Arcadia is not an ordinary city, but the most watched reality show on the planet - where a drop in popularity ratings comes at the highest cost: death.

American Arcadia gives you control over two characters in completely different environments and unique playstyles: A 2.5D action side-scroller including challenging platform action, breath-taking chases, stealth and puzzles. As well as a full 3D first-person game, with hacking, exploration, stealth elements, and puzzles to solve.

Midnight Fight Express

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge

by Tribute Games

Shredder's Revenge is a side-scrolling action brawler with a pixelated artstyle. In the game, the player assumes control of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael, April O'Neil and Master Splinter as they combat opponents including the Foot Clan, Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady, and Shredder in locations ranging from New York City sewers to Dimension X. Each character has their own attributes (range, speed, and power) and plays differently. They also have unique super moves and taunts. As the player progresses each stage, they will find pizza boxes, which can be used to heal the player, and other pies that grant players extra strength and infinite supers for a brief period of time.
Coming to console and PC on June 16, 2022

Become an intrepid Realmwalker, and venture forth alone or with friends - as you explore, craft, build and fight across a visually stunning Gaslamp Fantasy world.

The Quarry

by Supermassive Games and 2K Games

If you think this game looks similar to the Dark Pictures Anthology franchise, then you'd be correct. Made by the same studio, Supermassive Games, The Quarry is a horror-thriller game where your choices matter.

When the sun goes down on the last night of summer camp, nine teenage counselors are plunged into an unpredictable night of horror. The only thing worse than the blood-drenched locals and creatures hunting them are the unimaginable choices you must make to help them survive.
