The Best Presentation of E3 2017

/ Jun 14th, 2017 No Comments

Devolver Digital

Each year, E3 begins with a series of pre-E3 press conferences from the major developers and publishers. All eyes turn to Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, EA, Ubisoft and Bethesda during the days leading up to E3. However, for E3 2017, none of those major video game companies presented an overly impressive showing.

So, who had the best press conference of E3 2017? This year, it was Devolver Digital, who presented a shocking, strange and magical conference for E3.

Devolver Digital’s presentation for E3 2017 is only around 15 minutes long, but in that time, it managed to present an irreverent parody of E3 press conferences.

The publisher is known for its certain brand of humor and strangeness, and the insanity was clear during the company’s first ever E3 press conference. In fact, the “press conference” was more of a joke than a press event, and actually seemed to be a pre-recorded segment.

Me throughout the presentation.

During the presentation, Devolver took potshots at industry trends, including Early Access games and how video game press conferences generally work. However, there was a look at games, ranging from the bizarre (Frog Smashers, MultiBall) to the violentc (Ruiner, Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour, Project Richter). The way Devolver’s presentation worked, it was difficult to tell if the game trailers were real.

Gameplay, mock interviews were shown along with fake trailers and awkward audience reactions. At times, it was hard to tell what was real and what was part of Devolver’s crazed E3 fever dream. It all culminated with the main presenter’s head literally exploding.

Devolver obviously doesn’t take itself too seriously, and because video games are entertainment, it was a perfect reminder not to take video games so seriously during E3. It was a very self-aware presentation from Devolver, and that is what made it the best of E3 — the fact that the other presenters didn’t show their best also helped.
