What if the protagonist of Stray, instead of a cat, was a beautiful cel-shaded raccoon? Well, we would have Snaccoon. The title mixes exploratory elements with stealth phases, impersonating a peculiar furry protagonist who is constantly looking for food in a world where there is definitely a shortage of it. No release date, if not a generic “Coming Soon”. We are curious!

We therefore move to a decidedly darker atmosphere, with Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon.

We return to planet earth with a new trailer for Goat Simulator 3 by Coffee Stain Studios. Between lightsabers, explosions and jumps made with farts, watching the trailer we asked ourselves: but really in 2022 there are still this type of simulation games? Apparently… Goat Simulator 3 will arrive on PC, Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5 next November 17th.
The Chant / Ereban: Shadow Legacy / Wizardy: The Five Ordeals | Future Game Show 2022 annunci
