Today, UK-based publisher Team17 — who recently put out Yooka-Laylee — announced the games it will be packing at E3 2017.

Unfortunately if you’re one of the 15,000 attending the superbowl of the game industry this year as a consumer: you won’t be able to see any of Team17’s game as they will only be available to the press via appointments.

The publisher will have the following four games:

Aven Colony (PS4, Xbox One, PC) 

Aven Colony puts you in charge of humanity’s first extrasolar settlement on Aven Prime, an alien planet of deserts, tundras, and jungles light years from earth.

Build the infrastructure, look after the well-being of your citizens, manage your resources, and guide your colony to prosperity — all while dealing with the harsh and often dangerous realities of an alien world.

The Escapists 2 (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)

The Escapists 2 is the forthcoming sequel to the multi-million selling, award-winning sandbox prison-escape game. The Escapists 2 will feature multiplayer, a first for the series, as well as new ways to escape, new items to craft, a completely revamped combat system, new customization options and more!

Genesis Alpha One (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

Genesis Alpha One is a revolutionary mix of roguelike shooter, base building and survival that puts you in the role of an interstellar pioneer.

In a near future ravaged by wars; corrupt regimes and global capitalism left unchecked have resulted in natural resource over-exploitation and pollution devastating the planet. Societies are collapsing. Supported by Earth’s remaining governments, four influential corporations initiate the Genesis program.

As the Captain of a Genesis starship, you journey into uncharted space on the ultimate mission. Build and manage a space vessel, farm resources, deal with terrifying alien infestations, clone creatures and explore a vast, randomly generated universe.

Your goal: Find new homes for humanity’s DNA and save the species from extinction

Yoku’s Island Express(PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC) 

Say hello to Yoku the Dung Beetle, a new hero who has arrived on Mokumana Island to relieve the resident pterodactyl postmaster, or Posterodactyl, as he’s known, of his duties.

He’s ready for the easy life, soaking up the sun and delivering parcels on a tropical paradise! However, Yoku will quickly discover that an ancient Island deity is trapped in a restless sleep, and a host of colourful, quirky islanders are plagued by quakes and storms brought forth by its nightmares.

It’s all down to Yoku to traverse the island using a unique blend of pinball mechanics and open world exploration, in an amazing quest to help those in need!

Flip and bump our pint-sized protagonist around the stunning hand-painted island on your quest to rebuild the post-office, discover the mystery of the Fruit Altar, and wake an old god from its deep slumber.

Additionally, if you’re a developer looking to pitch your game to the publisher: it has said it will have staff on site to take such pitches.

E3 2017 is set to take place from June 13 – 15 and will feature — alongside the show — press conferences from EA, Ubisoft, PC Gamer, PlayStation (Sony), Xbox (Microsoft), Nintendo, Bethesda, and new-guy on the E3 presser scene: Devolver Digital.
