We’re living in the era of the live streamer and it’s never been easier to start broadcasting your gameplay to millions of viewers around the world through Mixer. Which is why [email protected] Game Fest Week 3 will feature some of our favorite games to stream, making this week a wonderful time to pick up that game for your favorite streamer (or yourself) who won’t stop talking about:
Descenders (Xbox Game Preview) – Launching into [email protected] Game Fest with stunning visuals and Mixer interaction. Descenders is extreme downhill free-riding for the modern era with procedurally generated worlds, and where mistakes have real consequences. In Descenders, your team is your life. When you pick a side — Enemy, Arboreal, or Kinetic — you’ll be bound together with other players who choose the same side as you. Grab your bike, pick your team, and attempt to live up to the legend of your Descender.
Darwin Project (Xbox Game Preview) – Darwin Project is an outdoor, futuristic, 10-player battle royale style deathmatch game with a strong emphasis on hunting, trapping, and survival. Not only will you be pitted against fierce rivals, but you’ll compete for the favor of an all-seeing Show Director. Featuring arcade-style third-person combat, the fighting system is at once primal, with the main weapons being an ax and bow, and futuristic with powers such as teleportation and energy shields. The twist is the addition of a Show Director, a player character that runs the show, spicing things up or balancing as need be.
Cuphead – Winner of nearly every video game design award under the sun, Cuphead is a classic run-and-gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand-drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings. Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single-player or local co-op) as you traverse strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets while you try to pay your debt back to the devil!
Friday the 13th: The Game – Now you can play as Jason Voorhees, one of the most infamous characters in horror films. Stalk your prey, ambush them whenever you see fit and strike fear in the hearts of so many hapless victims as you become the legend himself! Friday the 13th: The Game will include a variety of kills, new and familiar, that will help you set the tone for the Jason Voorhees that you want to be. You’ll even get to unlock various Jason incarnations from the movies! Jason will be equipped with a terrifying array of abilities, giving you the control of a hunter at the height of his game. These are his woods, and he knows them all too well. Jason will not only feed off the fear of his victims but will become stronger as the night progresses. The darker the night, the more terrifying Jason becomes!
Hello Neighbor – Hello Neighbor has generated over 1 billion video views. See what the sensation is all about in this stealth horror game about sneaking into your neighbor’s house to figure out what horrible secrets he’s hiding in the basement. You play against an advanced AI that learns from your every move. Really enjoying climbing through that backyard window? Expect a bear trap there. Sneaking through the front door? There’ll be cameras there soon. Trying to escape? The Neighbor will find a shortcut and catch you.
Subnautic (Xbox Game Preview) – Explore the beautiful and sometimes terrifying world of Subnautica, an underwater open world adventure game. Craft equipment, pilot submarines, and out-smart alien wildlife to explore lush coral reefs, volcanoes, and cave systems. Descend into the depths of an underwater world filled with resources, creatures, wonder, and threats all while trying to survive.
