They’ve got a ton of games on the horizon and that means Square Enix Collective need to show them off. What better way can there be of doing that than by arriving at EGX 2017 with the largest Indie Games stand?
Taking place between 21st-24th September 2017, EGX will play host to a huge number of games. The Indie scene has always been somewhere to check out and with Square Enix Collective in attendance, you can be sure that the games will be plentiful. With that in mind, it’s great to hear that the Collective have teamed up with AMD to create the largest Indie gaming stand at the show.
Powered by AMD’s latest Ryzen™ and Radeon™ processors powering PCs from DELL, Square Enix Collective’s booth will be located right near the entrance of the show, on stand S40, with it featuring a total of 10 games spread over a whopping 30-plus pods.
If you’re visiting the show, you’ll find the likes of multiplayer FPS Battalion 1944, 2D cinematic anime adventure Forgotton Anne, and the much-anticipated return for the Fear Effect series with Fear Effect Sedna. Frst-person puzzler The Turing Test, recent psychological thriller Tokyo Dark, and Square Enix Collective’s first ever release, point-and-click adventure Goetia, will also be on the list.
“The way games are released has changed in recent years and, as such, so should the way we showcase them at events like EGX,” offers Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Development at Square Enix London. “No longer are games done and dusted on the day of release: they evolve, they update, they change. By the same token, our commitment to the games we’ve published goes well beyond launch day.
“It’s an ongoing journey. That’s why we’re proud to line up every project that we’ve signed to-date – with forthcoming titles lining up side-by-side with all those already released. We want to give everyone at EGX the full Square Enix Collective experience, and it’s only right that they get to play all we have to offer.”
“AMD is proud to team with the Square Enix Collective at EGX, as the games on display take full advantage of the new Ryzen 3, 5 & 7 processors, allowing players to experience the games as the developers envisioned, via a range of affordable and powerful desktops that power the full portfolio of the Collective,” said Raymond Dumbeck, Director, OEM Marketing, AMD. “Our collaboration with Square Enix Collective is based on the fact that both of our companies have a shared commitment and passion for indie gaming and we believe in helping developers deliver the best gaming experience possible.”
Square Enix Collective’s EGX line up will be:
- Throughline Games’ beautiful 2D cinematic anime adventure Forgotton Anne, where players take on the role of Anne as she tries to escape the Forgotton Realm and return to the real world.
- Fear Effect Sedna from Sushee, the first new game in this legendary series for more than 15 years.
- Sand Sailor Studio’s head-scratching puzzler Black The Fall, which casts players into a dark and oppressive world ruled by Communism.
- Recently announced rhythmic puzzle platformer Octahedron from Switzerland-based Demimonde.
- Multiplayer masterstroke Oh My Godheads, where players fight for control of ancient stone heads in ridiculously fast and frenetic action.
- Psychological horror Tokyo Dark, which puts a new spin on point-and-click play thanks to a multi-branching story rife with melancholic undertones.
- World War II FPS Battalion 1944, which tasks players with taking on some gloriously old-school multiplayer mayhem.
- Bullet-dodging 3D brawler Deadbeat Heroes, which brilliantly taps into all the best tropes from classic 90s beat-em-ups in a 60s superhero parody.
- First-person puzzler The Turing Test from Bulkhead Interactive.
- Square Enix Collective’s first ever release, puzzle-orientated point-and-click adventure Goetia.
- Deck & dice story-driven, single-player tactical RPG Children of Zodiarcs.
