Dark Light

The Guerrilla Collective, a new online digital games festival, was hosted this year by Greg Miller and produced by Media Indie Exchange (The MIX) in collaboration with Kinda Funny Games Showcase. This one of a kind show spanned from June 13 – June 15 and had plenty of new announcements, game reveals, dev interviews, and deep dives! We had reported about the showcase on 28 May when new companies had joined the Collective. For the complete show on Youtube check out: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3.

Here is our selection of games from the show that piqued our interest! For the sake of highlighting indie games we are keeping some well-known games out of the list – Crusader Kings 3, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 and System Shock. Also, we have already covered some of the games shown here on our website – Drake Hollow press release, The Falconeer trailer, Summer In Mara review, and the West Of Dead review.
