Carrion Release Date
We've finally got confirmation of the release date for Carrion. At Devolver Digital's recent Devolver Direct Stream, they showed a trailer confirming that Carrion will be coming out on July 23rd. They've also updated the game's Steam page to reflect this confirmed release date.
Carrion was first shown in the form of a GIF tease back in November 2017.
The lead developer, who goes by “kroskiewicz” on twitter has just recently expressed their excitement for the approaching release, with this tweet suggesting that the release is not far away at all:
The game’s titular tentacled monstrosity did appear at E3 2019 for part of Devolver Digital’s E3 presence last year. There’s an extended Q&A with the hideous beast over on Devolver’s youtube channel
There was also this trailer from 2019 when the announcement came that Devolver Digital had signed the game.
Then the more recent trailer confirming the release date is here.
And lastly, there is the launch trailer, with a cool animated style.
This is a game that turns the tables on the classic movie monster setup, where instead of fighting off a mysterious powerful force, you inhabit one. You’re lurking in the darkness, and using your tentacles wall clinging abilities to take out squads of armed but ultimately underpowered feeble humans. It’s darkly comedic, and they’ve absolutely nailed the look and feel of the game.
The game has been made available to players in the form of several time-limited demos available on Steam. Here's a full playthrough of the demo that was released in June 2020:
