Rumor: VGX Indie Game Reveal Is Likely Cliff Bleszinski’s Silverstreak
If you’ve been following the waterfall of information Geoff Keighley has been parlaying about the 2013 VGX show, you probably heard that Ready At Dawn wasn’t able to “make-weight” as it were. The studio was scheduled to show new footage of The Order: 1886 at the show, but they weren’t able to put the finishing touches on the footage in time.
Earlier today Keighley announced that the first ever indie title would be announced at VGX. It was later confirmed that Double Fine would be showing world premiere footage of Broken Age at the event. I was curious to know if the studio was planning on making a game announcement as well, so I reached out for comment. I spoke to Greg Rice of Double Fine and he let me know, “All we’re talking about tomorrow is Broken Age stuff and I can’t speak to unannounced stuff quite yet.”
So what other high-profile indie studio, or person, has something that may be ready to finally show tomorrow? Why former Epic Games alumni Cliff Bleszinski of course! He’s been teasing his project currently known as Silverstreak for a while with a few “cropped” images. He and Keighley exchanged a few words earlier this week, and Bleszinski mentioned he’d have a last-minute addition if there was time.

So it looks like we’ll finally get a good look at what Cliffy B has been up to since leaving Epic and taking on a life of Twitter trolling. From the limited amount of images we’ve seen. Silverstreak looks to be set in a post-cataclysmic setting. I say cataclysm instead of apocalyptic due to the fact that the environment looks ravaged by a natural disaster rather than something man-made. If I’m right, VGX just got a definite new game reveal, which is just what the doctor ordered.
