It’s officially the E3 season. Between the E3 marquee pressers (Microsoft, Square Enix, Ubisoft, et cetera) and individual publisher-turned-E3-rogue events (what’s up, Sony?), you can attend a handful of events focused on smaller games. The first of these, at least according to schedule, is the Guerrilla Collective, which today released the first of two digital showcases.
Now in its second year, Guerrilla Collective is shining the spotlight on indie games. This year’s event featured a joint broadcast with Black voices in the game, which features games created by black creators or featuring black protagonists. Today, during a 90-minute event, Guerrilla Collective offered a glimpse of dozens of intriguing indie games on the horizon. Here is what happened :
