Annapurna Interactive is renowned for their work with independent game creators. Fans who might not know the publisher’s name likely know some of their games, like Donut Country, What Remains of Edith Finch, and Outer Wilds. If unfamiliar with their games, the company can likely be recognized by their presence in film and television with titles like Booksmart, Bombshell, Hustlers, and Pam & Tommy, Annapurna has a very unique voice in any of their endeavors that is undeniably offbeat, but thoroughly enthralling and still has mass appeal. This is likely why their products are such massive hits.
And also why this year’s Annapurna Interactive Showcase is likely going to captivate the audience and hype them up for the games to come. One of their most-anticipated games is Stray. In this game, players take control of a stray cat who must untangle an ancient mystery to escape a long-forgotten city. The game is set in a neon-lit cybercity that hides a dark and murky underbelly despite being so vibrantly lit.
Then there’s Neon Blue, a new game from Donut Country’s creator Ben Esposito. This anime-inspired, lightning-fast first-person action game has players exterminating demons in heaven. Players play as a handpicked assassin from hell who competes against other demon slayers for a chance to live forever in heaven. While the prize is grand, it seems like you may know the competition from a past life.
If more narrative focus is your thing, there’s A Memoir Blue, Annapurna Interactive’s interactive poem about a superstar athlete and the all-encompassing love between mother and daughter. The game has a unique aesthetic that combines hand-drawn and 3D art that brings the game’s journey to life.
Regardless of the type of gamer you are, Annapurna Interactive has got you covered. That wide variety is only of the games known and not even scratching the surface of their catalog. There are guaranteed hits just waiting to be announced and showcased. There could also be games with major celebrity involvement, updates and ports to next-gen consoles, there really isn’t much of a limit when it comes to Annapurna Interactive.
