Annapurna Interactive Showcase 2022 took a somewhat different approach to the video game publishers’ summer showcase format.

Here are the highlights of this year’s show.

Yarn owl

The story of Yarn Owl’s – a two-person team spread across Texas and Georgia – begins with Fabian Willis’ father giving him a copy of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past shortly before he passed away. After Willis finally beats the game when he’s older, he decides he wants to recreate that experience for others. After slowly teaching himself the tools of game development, he teams up with Chris Hofmann and together, the two are working to create their first game inspired by A link to the past. It’s just awesome to see regular people with little to no formal video game experience making a game. Yarn Owl’s story is inspiring and it’s great that Annapurna Interactive chose to highlight it.

Wild Lost

Wild Lost — a name that comes dangerously close to clashing with Michael Crichton’s lawyers — is a survival horror game that pits you against a world run by dinosaurs. Players explore a lush forest populated by all kinds of terrifying lizards with nothing but your wits and a mysterious voice to guide them. It’s giving Resident Evil but with dinosaurs instead of zombies, and since Capcom won’t release another one The Dino Crisisthis will have to do.
