    Newly revealed games Possessor(s) from independent developer Heart Machine (Hyper Light Drifter) and Tenjutsu from solo developer Deepnight Games (Sébastien Benard, Dead Cells) headlined this year’s Devolver Direct, alongside release date announcements for Anger Foot (Free Lives) and The Crush House (Nerial), and new DLC for Cult of the Lamb (Massive Monster) and The Talos Principle 2 (Croteam). Neva‘s first gameplay trailer was also showcased during the official Summer Game Fest Live earlier today.

    Possessor(s) – Coming to PC & Consoles in 2025

    Possessor(s) is a fast-paced action side scroller with combat inspired by platform fighters, a story told through dangerous characters, set in a deep interconnected world ripe for exploration.

    Play as Luca, the host, and Rehm, her less-than-cooperative counterpart, as they explore a quarantined city ripped apart and flooded by an interdimensional catastrophe. Their only hope of survival is by learning to co-exist.

    Tenjutsu – Coming to PC & Consoles

    In Tenjutsu you play as a renegade yakuza hellbent on defying her former associates and loosening their grip on the Secret Garden City.

    Four powerful crime syndicates control the city, ruling with an iron fist. To defeat them, you must master a brutal brawling system and build a diverse arsenal of weapons, upgrades, and martial arts techniques, breaking their hold on the streets in a flurry of violence.

    As these sinister organisations fall to your fists, tackled in any order you wish, the city is reborn.

    The ruined streets become vibrant and full of life, and you can spend gathered resources in shops and restaurants to help you on your quest.

    Shape the city to fit your play style, unlocking new weapons, combat moves, and areas to explore. Just don’t take too long: the longer you spend preparing, the stronger your enemies will become.

    Neva – Coming to PC & Console in 2024

    In Neva you’ll experience the moving tale of a young woman, Alba, and her lifelong bond with a magnificent wolf as they embark on a thrilling adventure through a dying world.

    Following a traumatic encounter with dark forces, Alba finds herself bound to a curious, mischievous wolf cub. Working together, the pair will help each other overcome increasingly dangerous situations.

    The wolf will grow and mature over time—as will Alba’s relationship with it as they traverse this cursed, decaying world.

    Anger Foot – July 11, PC


    Developed by Free Lives (Broforce, Gorn, Terra Nil), Anger Foot is a lightning-fast hard bass blast of kicking doors and kicking ass—and you can experience its foot-based chaos yourself when the game launches on PC on July 11.

    In this relentless first-person kicker you’ll crash through the caffeine-fueled fever dream of Shit City, putting the boot to a menacing menagerie of merciless gangsters.

    Unleash the world’s deadliest feet on a colorful cast of anthropomorphic enemies, clearing out slums, sewers, and skyscrapers as you grab new weapons, unlock new sneakers, and upgrade your powers in absurd and wonderful ways.

    Kick and shoot your way to the exit as you leave behind a smoldering trail of shattered doors, broken bones, and crumpled energy drinks.

    Shit City is a disease and your foot is the cure. Lace-up a capricious collection of formidable footwear to fight through a diverse series of deranged city districts. Are you the god of style, speed, or power? Discover secrets and unlocks that encourage replayability – and learn to tackle levels in new creative, ridiculous, and devastating ways.
