5 of the Best EGX 2021 Games

Honey, I Joined a Cult.

EGX 2021 has come and gone in the blink of an eye. After a long wait since the conclusion of EGX 2019, this year’s convention has come to an end as well. But, more importantly, what did we learn throughout our time there? Games, games and more games of course! Whilst EGX 2021 may have been a quieter, more relaxed affair, there were still plenty of upcoming releases to get our chops around. Here are just a few of our favourites:

Not a sequel to the Rik Moranis film series, but Honey, I Joined a Cult is a sim management game that has recently launched in Steam Early Access. Honey, I Joined a Cult comes from Team17’s publishing arm but it features much of the same humour we have come to expect from this legendary company.

As the leader of your cult, it is up to you to plan and devise every aspect of your grand plan to increase your number of followers and more importantly, your funding. After purchasing a new plot of land, you are tasked with building the best community for your cult to thrive in. Choose from a wide variety of different rooms and décor to make your cultists as loyal as possible.

However, it isn’t simply a case of just building in Honey, I Joined a Cult, you will need to micro-manage your cultists to get the best out of them. Their wants and needs must be met in order to get the most out of them, both fiscally and productively. Expect a The Sims like experience as you monitor everything right down to their bathroom routines.

Thymesia.

Also from Team17 and coming to Steam in December is the hardcore action-RPG Thymesia. Much like Honey, I Joined a Cult there is no official Xbox announcement just yet but by adding them to this list we can hopefully will a console port into existence.

Fans of Dark Souls and the Souls-like games in general will want to keep an eye on this. Featuring almost identical gameplay, it is tough not to make that comparison, but Thymesia does have a trick up its sleeve.

Featuring around a dozen bosses, this first Souls-like from Team17 will certainly offer something for existing fans but with healthy lore and world building could usher in a new generation of fans too. Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly.

Having been announced as coming to consoles just before EGX 2021, the convention marked the first time Coffee Talk Episode 2 was playable for fans. And as a huge fan of the first entry, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the pre-release special. Episode 2 will feature more of the same relaxing vibes, chillhop soundtrack, latte art but with a host of new characters too. The demo appeared to be set towards the beginning of the new game as Officer Jorji once again descends on the Coffee Talk coffee shop in Seattle. It isn’t long before new characters arrive for a drink though.

Grapple Dog. Currently, Grapple Dog is targeting a Steam release only. However, the demo that we played at the Super Rare Games booth was on a Nintendo Switch. Fingers are crossed for this one to go multiplatform sooner rather than later.

In Grapple Dog, you’re a dog with a grappling hook. That should be all you need to know to make a decision on the game itself, but there is a lot more to it as well. A 2D platformer, Grapple Dog will need to traverse these tricky levels using his grappling hook. There will be collectables and secret areas to explore like any good platformer, but you’ll need to use all your grappling abilities to find everything. Harp Song.

Our final inclusion from the best games of EGX 2021 is likely to be the one furthest away in terms of a release date, but it is already shaping up nicely. Harp Song is an action-adventure game that is using Irish mythology as its story inspiration. The gameplay we got to play involved wandering round Eire are Clár, a human who gets caught up in the ongoing battle between the Fomorians and the Tuatha Dé Danann.
