Hello everybody and welcome to this week’s newsletter. It’s a special week as we have had a ton of new game announcements and there’s the Steam Next Fest going on so there are a ton of demos waiting to be played.
So, what about the non-E3 weekend? There were a ton of announcements and we were lucky to witness some exciting Spanish projects. Ugly, from Team Ugly, was featured at the Guerrilla Collective. This puzzle-platformer game with a unique mirror mechanic and a gorgeous art style. And what do you say about Ereban: Shadow Legacy? This fast-paced stealth platformer was featured at the Xbox & Bethesda showcase.
