Backfirewall

Release date: 2022

Them’s Fighting Herds 3.0

This furry fighting game that’s honestly extremely good got a big update with updated supers and multiple balance changes. It’s quite rare for a sprite-based game to have these kinds of complicated animations for supers, so it means that the developers really put some effort into making them.

Release date: 2022

That was it for the PC Gaming Show 2022!

Well, that was a lot of games, almost 50 of them. A lot of these games are due in 2023, which is shaping up to be a big year for gaming like 2017 was before it. While the other shows like SGF and the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase had some great announcements as well, I can’t help but love the staggering amount of smaller-budget games we got in the PC Gaming Show this year. These smaller titles give developers way more liberty to work on exactly the kind of game they want, without trying to make the appeal as general as possible. Personally, my favorite game announcements from the event were as follows: Demonschool, Immortality, Backfirewall, Gloomwood, and Them’s Fighting Herds 3.0 update.
