This is a dedicated space for international games, and will house seven playable demos for visiting audiences.

So far, exact games from Devolver Digital have not been revealed, but it’s expected the lineup will include new and upcoming adventures. This could mean appearances from Gunbrella, Anger Foot, The Plucky Squire, Pepper Grinder, or Sludge Life 2.
