Resolution Games, the XR studio known for a spate of popular VR titles including Demeo, Blaston, and Ultimechs, is hosting its first-ever games showcase today which the Stockholm-based studio promises will reveal “major game announcements, updates and timely surprises for VR and MR games enthusiasts.”

Update (December 15th, 2022): Check out the Resolution Showcase today at 9AM PT (local time here) for the full download of all games and updates sure to be announced at the studio’s first-ever Nintendo Direct-style presentation. We’ve included the link to the livestream below so you can follow along.

Original Article (December 1st, 2022): The Resolution Games Showcase is slated to go live on YouTube and Facebook on Thursday, December 15th at 9AM PT/12PM ET.

Resolution Games founder and CEO Tommy Palm along with other members of the team are set to show off games, updates and more in what Palm calls “the single-largest news day the studio has ever had.”

“With the holidays right around the corner, we’re poised to see many more gamers unwrap a headset and immerse themselves into VR for the very first time,” said Palm. “Our showcase – which will be the single-largest news day the studio has ever had – will provide a warm welcome to new VR players taking their first virtual steps alongside the millions of players who already enjoy our games as we share new and upcoming fun they have to look forward to from Resolution Games.”

The company has previously revealed its fifth adventure module to its flagship title Demeo, Reign of Madness. The free update is arriving on December 15th for both Quest and SteamVR headsets, with a release on Pico devices in early 2023.

In addition to The Black Sarcophagus adventure which initially launched with the game in 2021, Reign of madness follows three other free expansions: Realm of the Rat King, Roots of Evil, and Curse of the Serpent Lord. Reign of Madness is set to introduce the grappling hook-wielding Barbarian as Demeo’s latest playable class, pitting you and your party against “their greatest evil yet,” the studio says.

The studio is also teasing that “Reign of Madness won’t be the only present under the Showcase tree,” as the studio is set to reveal a new title that will be playable on December 15th that Palm says “will be unlike anything we’ve released before.”

    Another family oriented title.
    Easy pass.

    • namekuseijin

      hopefully not

      Demeo is pretty great even solo, tbh. and I really liked Angry Birds too… they’re very capable devs.

      • NL_VR

        they make nische games. Demeo seems really good. Never really have time to play a game like that tho

        • namekuseijin

          Unfortunately, you were right. An event to show AR minigames…

          • NL_VR

            I think it was a great showcase.
            Resolution games are really polished, and many are free

  • Tommy

    Glad they changed course on in-game advertising. They caught some hell for that decision.

  • Still waiting for that mode where new monsters don’t spawn in randomly at times, so everything I do can be genuinely planned and strategized for the duration of play. I’d like to have a set amount of them in dungeons and have the fog of war permanently disappear from rooms once I’ve been in them.

  • Can’t say I’m too excited about this as RG makes stuff I INTENSELY dislike.
    And the use of lowlevel marketeering-speak describing this upcoming
    “games showcase” of theirs doesn’t exactly raise their status in my eyes.

    • Runesr2

      Could be interesting, unless it’s some more bottom-end Quest garbage – I’m highly allergic to software made for phone gpus, like the Adreno 650 (part of the XR2 SoC).

      • ViRGiN

        Funny, because that’s nearly entirety of PCVR titles, just with more fancy shaders, and nothing coming even close to 2010 games in depth or features.

        If you hate on Quest 2, you hate on whole of VR.

        Or maybe you’re one of the hundred something PCVR elitists playing non-VR games in VR, and thinking this is the future.

        • kool

          Ahem stormland bros have fun with that one lol.

          • Runesr2

            And Lone Echo 1-2. And Alyx + mods, and Asgard’s Wrath, and Wanderer, and Brass Tactics, and Medal of Honor A&B, and Lonn – there are tons of titles far beyond what the garbage phone gpus can handle, lol

            And especially Stormland with the awesome real-time shadows! :-)

            I don’t even consider standalone Quest 2 games for VR – such bottom-end graphics in no way look like any kind of reality, not even a virtual one.

          • kool

            I expect the next couple years to be big for aaa VR. We didn’t get many aaa games thru the last gen because of user base, budget and time. I dont think the budgets have gotten bigger but Dev’s have had time to figure out what works in VR and optimize graphics and gameplay. Couple this with a VR capable console and I think that we will see a lot of Dev’s putting out their VR dreams projects that’s been on the backburners until the platform matured. That has to happen first and the successes documented, before any real aaa Dev’s even gets interested.

          • Gabe Zuckerwell

            LONN, lmao. How much are you getting paid to shill for shit? Nobody plays it.

          • NL_VR

            what games do you like when you think Lonn is garbage ?
            storydriven singleplayer games is the games i miss most in the VR games library.

          • Gabe Zuckerwell

            Just because there is lack of single player story driven games doesn’t make lonn a good option, and lack of players reflects that.

            That and combined fact that this game does nothing for vr means websites aren’t going to cover it unless they pay for advertisements.

          • NL_VR

            You gave no answer you talk about “lack of players? ”
            Why do you think the game is garbage?
            What do you mean does nothing for VR?
            It’s a decent game made by a verry small studio (2 persons), what do you expect?
            Do you think all games that comes out need to do something new everytime?
            No that’s unrealistic, open your eyes most games doesnt bring “new” to the table. Sometimes just make a good game is enough

          • Gabe Zuckerwell

            Do you think it’s normal for emrging PCVR market to top up at 15 concurrent players, in a time of obvious drought in games? People should be jumping on the games, they don’t. Everyone is back to rec room and beat saber.

          • NL_VR

            ok you just stuck on repeat.
            Then I make the conclusion you just talk you dont play the games and dont want to discuss further.

      • Gabe Zuckerwell

        Why don’t you fuck off you LONN shill? Where is your review? It’s your entire personality all about shitting on the only industry leader? Go play some LONN, along with other 20 customers who have ever purchased the game.

  • Jeff Axline

    All the grief on here is something I find strange. Yep they did sign up
    for the in ad thing from FB, but quickly punted after realizing everyone
    would hate it, but Resolution Games is one of the best developers out

  • ViRGiN

    in another news, ‘STEAM HARDWARE SURVEY’ still fakes its results lol!
    pcvr playerbase is super super low, even lower than in the summer when apologizers says it’s too hot to play, and yet here we are, with growing PCVR userbase despite no growth seen anywhere

  • I can’t wait to discover what they will release

  • Sky Castle

    If it’s not AAA games it’s not really a major game imo. And I doubt there will be any.

    • Mr.Philgood

      it will be a AAA game. The definition of AAA according to Wikipedia is “… games produced and distributed by a mid-sized or major publisher”

    • NL_VR

      Most of the best games today is no made by the “AAA Industry”.
      when we say AAA games we think of well polished games.
      Truth is “AAA industry” just milk same shitty games that sells and lateltly many arent even polished, now i talk bugs and glitches.

      But i understand what you mean, platform is best when there is a mix of games.
      Sadly VR isnt really there yet, only way to support it is that you buy VR games you like.

  • kool

    Why dont all the VR Dev’s get together and put together a state of VR video and article. Showing upcoming games for the new year …call it state of VR. Shit yall should do it!

  • Mike EY

    HL:Alyx showed every kind of thing you can do in VR in one game… Holiday/explore, companion, escape room, 3d hand puzzles, asmr, object find, shooter, survival…

    The makers of this game choose to show in their primary demo “do what you’re told” and kill targets…

    • namekuseijin

      does Alyx do melee? How about at least gun holsters? Oof…

      stop overhyping this old training wheels game for VRgins…

      • ViRGiN

        I’m a “VRgin” and Alyx was an absolute dogshit of a game. That game did more bad for VR than good. It should never be released.

        • namekuseijin

          Lol that’s not true and you know it. big games like it do bring gamers to VR – unfortunately, they don’t stick around to play some of the best indies have to offer. we need more constant AAA (originals or good ports) and/or indies upping their game…

          • ViRGiN

            I seriously think it’s a horrible game.But it’s Half-Life – huge franchise that did not have anything released for many many years. Of course it’s going to get hyped. Of course it’s going to be tried on. 40k+ concurrent players at once shows something. That number has never been reached ever again across all games combined. Alyx made VR sort of bait and switch for those people. Everything else was just crappy looking overall. No need to stick to such premature technology. How many times I’ve heard that alyx ruined VR for them. Nothing come close to it they say. And I still think it’s crap only carried on by the title itself. I know a good game when I see one, but this isn’t it. Others will argue rec room or beat saber are a good games. Can’t expect indie to REALLY bump up their game. You either get money from investors (like vail) and fail immensly, or Meta has to sponsor everything.

  • Wtf people jumping on this hate train – Resolution Games is perhaps the greatest VR game studio today. People are so bitter, like god damn…

    • Tommy

      Yeah, because they attempted to participate in something everyone disagreed with. Did they redeem themselves? Maybe. Do they deserve the criticism? Absolutely.

    • namekuseijin

      ad-hating kids want everything indie underground, underhyped and underloved
