Day Of The Devs has become one of the premier showcases for indie developers to show off their latest games, and the 2023 edition is no exception: 15 new and upcoming indie titles were unveiled during the event, a list which includes new games from some prominent indie teams.

The post-Summer Game Fest event began with Beastieball, which is the latest project from Wishes Unlimited–also known as the team behind 2021’s Chicory: A Colorful Tale. Beastieball is a mixture of volleyball and Pokemon, where players will befriend and recruit Beasties and compete in Beastieball tournaments–matches playing out like turn-based RPG battles. Beastieball is scheduled for a 2024 release, with a crowdfunding campaign set to begin soon.

Cart Life, which originally released to critical acclaim in 2013 before being pulled from online marketplaces by its creator, was also highlighted during the show. Cart Life is a “slice-of-life simulation” where players control merchants trying to sell different goods on the streets of a city in the western United States. Player choices can influence whether each merchant prioritizes their cart or their life outside of work, which has effects on the overall story.
