Netflix Geeked Week 2022 Games Showcase

I was a little uncertain when I saw Netflix had a game showcase, but I decided to give it a chance. They started with trailers for two animated shows based on games, Dragon Age: Absolution and Tekken: Bloodline.

Then they started announcing games based on shows. First was Shadow and Bone: Destinies, a game I might be interested in if it wasn’t a mobile game. The next was a dating sim based on Too Hot to Handle, which I’m not familiar with at all, but it looked to me like a lot of mobile visual novels I’ve seen. Third was La Casa de Papel, a mobile heist game. Finally, they announced The Queen’s Gambit Chess, which as far as I can tell is just chess.

Moving back to shows based on games, they featured the Cuphead show.

Next was a platformer called Lucky Luna and a turn-based strategy game called Desta: The Memories Between, which was actually announced earlier this week. A new entry in the Reigns series was announced next, Reigns: Three Kingdoms. Then came Terra Nil, a reverse city builder, and Poinpy, a vertical climber.

Back to shows, they featured DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, Sonic Prime, and Castlevania: Nocturne. In between, they also announced some existing games that will be available with a Netflix subscription.

If you can’t tell, the Netflix gaming showcase didn’t exactly do much for me.

Epic Games

Epic Games also had a showcase today, but it was mainly focused on already-announced games coming to the Epic Games Store, so I’m not officially counting it as a Not-E3 show. One exception was Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria, a new Epic-exclusive Lord of the Rings game.

Tribeca Games Spotlight

This was also our first year watching the Tribeca Games Spotlight, which focused on already-announced titles, with an extended look at each of them. Thirsty Suitors, The Cub, As Dusk Falls, and Venba don’t particularly interest me, but I did enjoy seeing more from A Plague Tale: Requiem.

They showed the Cuphead DLC again, and then Oxenfree 2. I enjoyed the first Oxenfree, although not as much as some people did, so it could be interesting.

After that, they showed Immortality, an interactive FMV game that looks like it could be pretty cool.

American Arcadia was featured once more as the final game in the show.

Freedom Games Summer Showcase

The final showcase today came from publisher Freedom Games. Like the previous showcase, most games had a small segment of the show devoted to it.

They started with an open world sandbox crafting game called Good Heavens!, and then shadow dropped a turn-based strategy RPG called Symphony of War.

Next was a survival game called Retreat to Enen, and then a mystery thriller called Broken Pieces that could be interesting.

After that, they showed a pixel art adventure game called Monorail Stories, an open world monster catching RPG called Monster Tribe, a cyberpunk action game called Neon Blight (not to be confused with yesterday’s Neon White), a multiplayer game called Against All Odds, and a space farming sim called One Lonely Outpost.

Nine Years of Shadows was the next game to get my attention, a Metroidvania that looks beautiful (but sadly was one of the only games not to be discussed beyond showing the trailer).

The next game was an open world zombie game called HumanitZ, then new content for the open world game Sands of Aura, and then a turn-based strategy game called Tyrant’s Blessing.

Meanwhile, Voltaire the Vegan Vampire is a bizarre concept I love, but since it’s described as an “action-farming-roguelite,” I don’t know that I’d actually enjoy playing it.

Terracotta was the next game shown, an action-adventure game that I definitely want to keep my eye on.

Open world deck-building survival game Death Drive was next, then Mars Base, and then Blood and Zombies. A montage of monster catching games was the last thing before the end.

Today was a somewhat slow day for me as far as showcases went, with only a couple of games that caught my eye. Still, what games from these showcases stood out the most to you?

  2. Netflix also announced Spiritfarer will come to mobile and playable with a Netflix subscription, as one of the existing games. Still not sure how I feel about Netflix gaming, but might be interesting to see what they do with it.
