Devolver Direct: The Return of Volvy

Volvy is back and he’s bringing new game reveals and announcement with him:

The 2023 edition of Devolver’s marquee marketing event contains new game announcements, playable demos and a host of other surprises including the long-awaited return, reboot and rebirth of the world’s favourite video game mascot… Volvy!

Introduced to the world more than 30 years ago in his first solo game Field Run, Volvy went on to star in a string of hit Devolver games… Hotline Miami, Enter the Gungeon, Gris, My Friend Pedro, Ape Out, Pikuniku, Cult of the Lamb…the list goes on and on. For generations of gamers, this is where it all began. The cultural icon of the gaming industry, more influential than any pop-star or politician.


  1. Whoever doesn't wanna see the losers acting extremely cringe, the trailers start at 8:0010:30 and 12:1013:15 the rest is not worth mentioning and just wastes your time.

  2. Not only is this a great direct, it’s a really great parody of the game industry and, honestly, publicly facing entertainment industries as a whole

  3. Skillup !!!!! Fu&€ me!!!! Im in Heaven

  4. This is making me think of Clickhole, and I love it!

  5. Seems like YouTube messed up the dimension for this upload

  6. kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  7. What the fuck is the point of this. . make a game. . .

  8. So, I admit I'm a little conflicted on your presentation this year. On the one hand, it was really good on its own merits, and if I hadn't watched any of your other presentations I would probably love it without any complaints. BUT….
    I have watched your other presentations.
    No Nina
    No Zane
    No Margaret
    No Don

    I felt kinda… sad, about that. Not to mention some of the new characters you were introducing in the last years like the Asian lady CEO of Devolver who was really funny and I wanted to see more of. I kinda hope you get back together with Don Thacker and find a way to continue what you developed before. Because it brought me pure joy. Again though, this was good, and I really enjoyed the Ronathon character especially, and if you continue on this track, and even if you go back to the old one, I hope you'll find a way to continue and expand his character. Having this sort of…. just perplexed, seemingly nice person who is part of the game industry and having to learn to deal with all its garbage was an excellent touch for this presentation, and he was definitely my favorite part about it, even if he didn't do a ton. His reactions and such to everything that happened really conveyed alot to me, as did his little bit at the end where he stops the carnage by going back in time to a simpler, point and click style world of video games and using that to save the day.

    Sorry for the long comment, and otherwise getting so serious about all this. But. Your conferences and everything about them helped me get through a dark part of my life, and they still are doing so. Whatever choices you make, I hope you will continue to make them for the next 20 years or more. Ill be here for every one of them.

  9. I'm shocked they didn't make a "rough transition to 3D" joke

  10. The highest level of shit post can make you laugh and feel at the same time.

  11. It’s “l’m back COMMA Gamers.”

    Classic wrong Volvy advertising mistake.

  12. I was hoping they’d announce a new volvy game so that i could finally play a game starring this gaming icon… but it wasn’t to be…

  13. I love these type of fake things. Also holy crap the amount of gameplay content showed is amazing

  14. Well done! I hope to one day be published too. Im working on a game.

  15. Volvy was always for the kids. I preferred Pootie the wanking Chihuahua, back in the day

  16. Devolver, introducing an AI-Robot. What could possibly go wrong x)

  17. This is the most creative direct video I’ve ever seen bravo 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻

  18. This is cool and all but WHERE IN LITERAL HELL IS BROFORCE FOREVER?!?!

  19. Genius presentation. Gets better every year!

  20. If there's no actual Volvy shirt for sale, I'm going to riot. I've never seen a shirt I needed more in my life.

  21. 10/10…..konkurenz kann sich gerne n scheibe abschneiden in sachen presentation…

  22. What the ** happened?!
    This was some of the worst, most boring, piece of garbage writing I have ever seen. Where's the fun stuff we've been seeing in these Directs for the past number of years? Seriously. What happened? Who lost their stones?

  23. Didn’t clash of clans also do something like this? Or did “Clash” actually exist and I’m too young to know?

  24. Is there a way to have the music used in the direct? I really like the one used in the field run 2 part
