This year’s pre-recorded video will be streamed on Twitch and Steam.

The oddball show “continues the tradition of overpromises with new game reveals, gameplay reveals, release date announcements, and special guests from the industry to help usher in these important marketing bullet points. And it’s nearly all gameplay because that’s what the youths of today demand.”

Apart from the annual show’s usual mayhem, Devolver is also promising public demos for the death-bringing monster game Carrion, the death-dodging Disc Room, and an unannounced title.

2019’s Devolver Direct had a refreshingly brief 21-minute runtime, and I hope that’s still the aim.
