Summary

Carefully staging bluster is easy; getting Ars Technica staffers to agree that the games in question are fun or interesting to play is not.While a post-pandemic landscape has led more gamemakers to begin to offer remote game demos, none of the industry's current "triple-A" titans offered me a way to play their most-hyped titles, the ones typically slated to launch a few months after a big June showcase. The below list includes links for how to find the same demos I tested, with the exception of exclusives made available to Ars by the inaugural Tribeca Games Festival—whose limited game selection happened to impress.Ogopogo: Coming August 27 | Demo via Steam | Official siteI've matched, popped, and dropped more video game puzzle pieces than anyone I know, yet even I did a double-take upon seeing this brand-new puzzling concept. (Thankfully, the demo will save your progress, should life and responsibilities intrude on this game's genius.)Tunic: No release date | Demo via Xbox | Official siteThough I've played (and enjoyed) this Zelda-like game at conventions and expos over the years, the game has never felt as feature-complete or satisfying as in this year's entirely new demo on Xbox consoles, which I played long enough to confirm its quality—then immediately deleted.
