W.A.S.D., the new consumer videogame show, kicks off on April 7 as part of the London Games Festival, and the event’s organisers have confirmed a totally sold-out show floor. That means there will be plenty of games from publishers like Sega, Devolver Digital, and Team17 on display, and W.A.S.D. will offer the first public hands-on for several hotly anticipated upcoming PC games.
Sega will be at the show with the first public hands-on look at Two Point Campus. A follow-up to Two Point Hospital, this university-building simulator takes the goofy sensibilities of classic management games like Theme Hospital and applies them to a new setting with a modern twist, letting you offer jousting degrees from Knight School or certificates in giant pies from the college of Gastronomy.
Team17 will be on-hand with the recently-announced Ship of Fools, a co-op roguelike game where you sail the seas, buckle some swash, and do battle with varied abominations in search of ever-cooler loot.
As previously announced, Devolver will be there to provide the first publicly playable versions of Cult of the Lamb and Trek to Yomi. As marketing manager Robbie Paterson tells us, “It’s going to be really exciting to watch people finally play them. I think they’ll be pleasantly surprised! We’ve always prided ourselves on the diversity of our games, and I don’t think these two could be more different, so hopefully folks will see that we’ve got something for everyone.”
