The mega indie publisher — and now developer — aired its annual event and it was a wild one. On top of updates, release dates, and brand-new reveals, Annapurna announced it was making its debut in-house game. There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s get to it.
Look at this game! Newly revealed at the showcase, Ghost Bike looks to have a little bit of Sable, a touch of Season: A Letter to the Future, and the flaming skull of Knight Rider. It seems the protagonist is on a mission to reawaken the powers once wielded by a group of arcane couriers. To do this, you’ll have to win races in the afterlife to prove worthy of the Ghost power.
I had a sneaking suspicion we’d be getting an update on this SGF darling today. Thankfully, my instincts didn’t lead me wrong. Fans can look forward to getting their hands on Cocoon September 29.

Yep. Lorelei and the Laser Eyes still looks weird in the best way. Today’s glimpse of the previously announced title focused on its puzzles and brain-teasers. It focused on them uncomfortably hard. Expect to unravel the mysteries inside of mysteries sometime next year.
The distinctively naturalistic photo-adventure game, Lushfoil, was unveiled during the showcase — and I’m all in. The object of the game is to experience the beauty of the world, traveling from location to location recording each detailed environment with your camera.

Y’all, I want to collect glow buddies, floating sheep, and screaming whales. This multiplayer game is headed to PlayStation, Xbox (and Game Pass), and PC next year, and I want to hang out with friends charming silly flying creatures so bad.
The concept of this game is wonderful. You play as a teen who, for some reason, is forever stuck in a “T” pose. You’ll have to navigate all the problems that come from this while learning to accept yourself. We didn’t get a release date, but whenever it launches, it’ll come to Game Pass and PC.
Half 3D action, half home decorator, Bounty Star looks to be one unique experience. Players will hop into the mech of an ex-soldier as she struggles to come to terms with her past.

Storyteller’s drop comes along with a free update hitting all platforms. Also, Annapurna is helming publishing for Mundaun, and the title is coming to latest-gen consoles.
