Versus Evil Puts Developers First With Stacked Game Lineup at E3 2015 News Header

A mix of established and rising independent developers are set to display their upcoming titles at the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles later this month in partnership with independent game publisher Versus Evil. Six varied and high quality games will be playable at the Versus Evil booth, West Hall #5522.

“We are proud to be able to host such an incredible group of indie developers and their quality games at this year’s E3,” said Versus Evil General Manager Steve Escalante. “Our line-up of The Banner Saga 2, Skyshine’s Bedlam, Afro Samurai 2, Armikrog, Guild of Dungeoneering and Kyn gives us eagerly awaited sequels, spiritual successors to all-time classics, and innovative newcomers all under one roof. These games and their teams will contribute to one of the best E3s for high caliber, independently developed games which deserve to be on this world class stage.”
