We’ve unveiled our official Games selections for Tribeca Festival 2022, once again commemorating the convergence of games, entertainment, and culture. This year’s lineup features nine titles that demonstrate exceptional storytelling, art, and innovation through interactive experiences. Each selection will compete for the Tribeca Games Award, which honors an unreleased game for its excellence in art and storytelling through design, artistic mastery, and highly immersive worlds.
In 2021, Tribeca Festival featured its first ever Official Selections for Games, including Ember Lab’s visually stunning Kena: Bridge of Spirits; Luis Antonio’s interactive thriller Twelve Minutes, starring James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley, and Willem Dafoe; and the inaugural Tribeca Games Award winner, NORCO, which was praised by critics upon its release in March 2022 for its brilliant, narrative-rich experience.
This year the 2022 Games program features the world premieres of Immortality, an interactive trilogy in which players can explore the legend of Marissa Marcel, a film star who disappeared, through her work; OXENFREE II: Lost Signals, the mind-bending follow up to the critically acclaimed narrative adventure OXENFREE, from Night School Studio; and Cuphead - The Delicious Last Course, another helping of classic Cuphead action with new weapons, magical charms, and more.
From June 11-19, the Tribeca Festival continues to offer digital experiences for global audiences powered by Parsec. Those able to join the Festival in person this year will be the first to experience a playable Games Gallery featuring demos, art, and artifacts for this year’s selections, hosted at Tribeca Festival’s hub, Spring Studios.
