Kinda Funny Games Showcase E3 Highlights

The Kinda Funny Games crew is all about everything gaming. So much so they had their own E3 2019 Showcase. Building off the success of their KF Showcase back in December, host Greg Miller had stated they have rounded up 60+ (62 to be precise, and more than Microsoft I might add) games to cover during their showcase.

The showcase, giving the smaller indie developers a voice at E3, ran in between big dogs Ubisoft and Square Enix. The prime time slot meant Kinda Funny only had a little over an hour to get through all the games. Tapping into the usual high energy Greg always brings, they were able to pull it off in just under 49 minutes. 

With over 60 games to go through, I will not be touching on every game shown. The full show is included above for those that missed it and want to view the whole showcase. Below that are the games that intrigued me the most. Which games did you find the most interesting? Let me know in the comments below.

Monster Prom 2: Holiday Season – Beautiful Glitch

Coming to PC in 2020, Monster Prom 2: Holiday Season brings you more of the world’s best (and maybe only?) multiplayer dating sim; but in a way you’ve never expected! The original Monster Promis a multiplayer dating sim that shines for its beautiful art and unapologetic humor.

The sequel is… something different. It’s 3-games-in-1. Because we weren’t sure which kind of vacations to take, we chose 3: Summer Camp, Winter Retreat and Roadtrip. So each game is smaller than the original one, but they’re the same size when put together. And each time you play, you can choose which game suits you better that time.

Lost Ember – Mooneye Studios
