On Tuesday, the 2022 Games announced its official selections, which includes a band that focuses on storytelling, art, and innovation through interactive experiences.
Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, a Canadian developer and publisher, will be released in June, and will follow the successful first appearance, including 2017's run and gun adventure Cuphead, which was later reimagined as an animated series on Netflix.
The sequel to 2019's A Plague Tale: Innocence will be released later this year. Night School Studio, a subsidiary of Netflix, is adding a narrative game named Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, a follow-up to Oxenfree in 2016.
Additional selections include American Arcadia from Raw Fury, drama As Dusk Falls from developer INTERIOR/NIGHT and publisher Xbox Game Studios, Immortality from developer and publisher Half Mermaid, Thirsty Suitors from developer Outlerloop Games and publisher Annapurna Interactive, and narrative cooking game Venba from Visai Games.
Our selections from this year represent the staggering range of how games represent a powerful form of storytelling, said Casey Baltes, vice president of Tribeca Games and Immersive. Were continuing to expand how audiences and players interact with games, not only as entertainment, but as one of the most impactful cultural mediums.
Each choice will compete for the Tribeca Games Award, which honors an unreleased game for its skill in art and storytelling through design, artistic mastery, and highly immersive environments. The honor was given to Norco's gothic adventure.
The Tribeca Games Spotlight will feature the official selections from the last year and will feature demos and art from the competition. On June 10, the Tribeca Games Fest will take place in a playable game gallery.
