Every Day of the Devs 2024 announcement for Nintendo Switch and mobile

As part of this year’s Summer Games Fest, the Day of the Devs 2024 showcase brought us a heaping helping of fresh indie titles to look forward to this year. What’s more, tons of these incredible games are coming to Nintendo Switch or mobile, so you can experience them on the go.

Day of the Devs started in 2012 as a collaboration between games developer Double Fine Productions and merchandising company and publisher iam8bit to shine a light on new indie games from diverse and underrepresented talent, and it prides itself on offering developers the chance to showcase their projects at events for free.

As well as highlighting a bunch of incredible projects during its Summer Games Fest presentation, Day of the Devs also called on fans of the project to show their support, as it is now a registered nonprofit organization. You can send a one-off or monthly donation on the Day of the Devs website.

While Waiting – 2025, mobile

While Waiting is a chaotic and hilarious game all about waiting and life. You’re more than welcome to simply wait in the game’s 100+ scenarios, but there are also plenty of other things you can do to interact with the world in each level. The story takes you on a journey from life to death, and the devs, who previously made the critically acclaimed game Moncage, hope that you will “learn to embrace life as you wait.”

Day of the Devs 2024: Cairn key art featuring the climber on a rocky mountain face

Cairn – 2025, Switch

Developed by the creative geniuses at The Game Bakers, who previously brought us Furi and Haven, Cairn is a realistic mountain-climbing game following Aava, a determined survival climber who wants to be the first to reach Mount Kami’s summit. The Game Bakers’ CEO Audrey Leprince says, “After Furi – living free, and Haven – free to love who you want, Cairn is the conclusion of our trilogy on freedom. This time it’s about pushing beyond your limits and breaking free from your obsessions.”
