Kinda Funny Games Showcase Detailed, Will Feature News on Over 60 Games
The Kinda Funny Games Showcase will include news on more than 60 different titles with "nearly half a dozen" releasing over the course of the stream.
Kinda Funny’s co-founder and face Greg Miller has been talking openly for months now about the Kinda Funny Games Showcase, a live stream taking place this coming weekend, that is somewhat meant to fill the void of PlayStation Experience in the latter portion of the calendar year. As of today, we have received more extensive details on what to expect during the event.
Announced this morning, it was revealed that over 60 different games will be featured during the Kinda Funny Games Showcase. Of those 60, it is also said that nearly another half dozen will be releasing live during the stream.
Publishers and devs that are confirmed to have new reveals for the show include Sega (which seems to be Yakuza related), Humble Bundle, Futurlab, Devolver Digital, Bithell Games, Outer Loop, Kitfox Games, and Drinkbox Studios.
Miller also released a new statement about the showcase and his reason for wanting to establish it in the first place:
“I’ve always loved how Geoff’s Game Awards dovetail with PlayStation’s PSX. The Game Awards take care of all the huge news, announcements, and trailers, and then PSX offers a lower key, fan/dev-focused event where other — often smaller — games can shine. With it taking 2018 off, we thought it would be a great opportunity to take it upon ourselves to offer game makers a platform to celebrate their work.”
The stream is said to last for more than an hour and will feature a variety of games from many different companies that will be releasing in the coming months or year.
The Kinda Funny Games Showcase will kick off on Saturday, December 8, at 1pm EST/10am PST. To watch for yourself, just tune into Kinda Funny’s official Twitch channel.
