This year’s Day Of The Devs boasted an entire seven exclusives, plus a load of other nifty features and previews for exciting indies we already knew about, but are no less excited to be reminded of. It’s been over ten years now since Tim Schafer and the folks at Double Fine kicked off the non-profit initiative to help shine a spotlight on games what they thought were nice. No way! I love games what I think are nice! Here’s everything from Day Of The Devs 2024, dutifully arranged for your clicking pleasure.

The high concept to this puzzle game makes my head hurt a little, but it's immediately soothed by the very large squirrels in the background.

All my opinions on Blumhouse come from Red Letter Media, so I won't comment.

Watch on YouTube

It does look cosy, although surely they can squeeze in a little existential dread, as a treat.

Karma: The Dark World is a dystopian sci-fi journey

Watch on YouTube

Psychological horror set in 1984 East Germany. A grab-bag of dys-tropia, but looks interesting nonetheless.

The most wholesome game that ever wholesomed? You can decide yourself with this demo.

Zoochosis has sullied giraffes for the remainder of eternity

Watch on YouTube

Even worse, that pizza crust is far too thick.

I don’t like to pick favourites... so I won’t! It’s called integrity. Maybe you should try it sometime, Johnny Favourite Game. Johnny Always-Picks-A-Favourite-Game. Anyway, you lot aren’t bound to the same rigorous standards, so let me know in the comments. What’s your favourite(s) from the list? I promise I won’t email all the other devs and tell them you hate them. We're not done with June's frankly preposterous onslaught of games just yet, so make sure to check out our Summer Game Fest 2024 and Wishlisted Next Fest zones! I'm calling them 'zones' now, and there's nothing you can do about it.

The flurry of summer games events are now underway! Hit up our Summer Game Fest 2024 hub and our Day Of The Devs roundup for all the news worth caring about from the shows so far.
