Five unique games from IGN’s Summer Of Games Showcase

This afternoon, IGN put on its now annual Summer of Games presentation, which featured an abundance of game trailers covering all genres and tastes. Co-editor Wesley LeBlanc and I watched the show together and picked out a handful of titles we look forward to seeing more of in the future. Now, this list will not include the big hits of the show like Gungrave GORE, DNF Duel, The Walking Dead or the latest Aliens: Fireteam Elite expansion, but instead highlights some games you may not already know. Check out these great indie titles coming to a gaming machine near you:

The last worker

The Last Worker got a new trailer during IGN’s Expo stream today, which shows more of the game’s exciting cast. Speaking of the voice cast, today’s trailer showed a great talent: Jason Isaacs (Lucious Malfoy in Harry Potter movies), Zelda Williams (Robin Williams’ daughter!), Tommie Earl Jenkins (Die-Hardman in Death Stranding), Clare-Hope Ashitey (Master of None), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson and David Hewlett. In terms of what to expect, Oiffy’s developer describes the game as follows in today’s trailer description:

“The main character Kurt needs a certain type of break, but it does not seem to find one in this in this trailer for The Last Worker. This narrative adventure explores what happens when humans are replaced by robots in a freight warehouse in a capitalist environment in the final stages. “

The Last Worker comes to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, Switch and PC (as well as unspecified VR platforms) once this year.

Roots of Pacha

Roots of Pacha was announced last year, but today’s trailer gave us another look at the beautiful Stardew Valley-like farm game. It also has more of the game’s extremely catchy music. And to coincide with that, we got a look at the music rhythm mini-game in Roots of Pacha. Soda Its latest has a Steam demo that you can play right now, and if you use the code “Smiley”, you get an exclusive cat hat to use in it.

Here’s how Roots of Pacha is described in the IGN trailer released today:

“Roots of Pacha lets you build, harvest crops, befriend animals, and help grow your village in single-player or collaborative mode. This trailer for the Roots of Pacha game shows some new elements you can experience while playing. “

Fool or Fools

A new trailer for Ship of Fools was released today, revealing that Fika Productions’ shipping roguelike is coming to consoles. In addition, this colorful and chaotic game will feature both online and couch co-op. The new trailer also reveals a new look at the hectic gameplay, as well as the many shops in the game to visit and the map we will use to navigate these dangerous waters. Ship of Fools comes to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, Switch and PC once this year.

Under Oresa

From the head of Broken Spear Inc. comes Beneath Oresa, a new deck-building roguelike that puts players on an adventure in the tunnels under the city of Oresa. Each character you bring into the tunnels has different benefits to use to try to survive the damp and dangerous subsoil. The new trailer that was shown in today’s IGN show revealed a new boss, a meaty, impressive mass of a monster with a makeshift spear in his hand, and who stormed against the player character from the dark. Under Oresa looks beautiful and exciting. If you’re also interested in checking it out before the foggy release date of 2022, there’s a demo to check out right now on Steam.


This JRPG from the developers at Pixelated Milk is not only fun to watch, but it looks like it could be a great look back at classic role-playing adventures. SacriFire, which pseudo-imitates the HD-2D style Square Enix has used in recent years, has the cool retro look we love to see. It combines both real-time elements of combat with traditional turn-based actions to create what we hope is exciting and strategic gaming. SacriFire does not currently have a set release date, but it is expected to land on PC this year.
