A new wave of games has joined the SXSW Sydney 2024 lineup, with plenty of notable names amongst the list. Headlining the pack of new inclusions, following the initial Games Festival announcement, is Blue Manchu’s Wild Bastards – the roguelike strategy sequel starring a gang of chaotic, gun-toting outlaws.

For a list of other highlights, we’ll also see garden puzzler Botany Manor from Balloon Studios, as well as promising new titles from developers based all around the world. There’s Farewell North, a game about restoring colour to a strange world, Dungeons and Dining Tables, a cosy RPG starring a warrior axolotl, and Candlelight: Lament, a noir, Lovecraftian mystery adventure.

Stealth-action adventure Raw Metal will also be present, as will the delightful-looking Pieced Together, a cosy, emotional game about scrapbooking. Meanwhile, The Diner at the End of the Galaxy promises “an intergalactic diplomacy game masquerading as a diner management game”, and you’ll also be able to spend time managing a dungeon with cats in Dungeon Inn.
