This morning’s Guerrilla Collective showcase featured new trailers and announcements on a ton of indie games from the Collective’s large partnership of indie developers and small publishers. The Guerrilla Collective’s festivities will continue for the next two days, but the Day One showcase is where all the big news announcements were expected to hit. And the showcase certainly didn’t disappoint. We have new updates on Baldur’s Gate 3, System Shock, and even Disco Elysium.
The showcase was streamed on twitch, and can be watched in full courtesy of IGN’s YouTube channel.
The first big announcement of the showcase came via a new trailer for System Shock. The trailer features alpha footage from the highly anticipated remake, and promises that we’ll soon be getting a playable demo of the game.
The next trailer of the showcase focused on HeadUp Games’ Cardaclysm which is a card battle game in development for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The card game pits players against the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in a procedurally generated ccg that mixes action-rpg elements with more familiar card battle mechanics.

Just Die Already is an upcoming Steam indie game by a developer who wishes Hideo Kojima would unblock their number.

Which could honestly mean anything.
