Carrion was first shown in November 2017 in the form of a GIF test and is now about to be released. It is currently officially scheduled for a “2020” release date, as indicated on the game’s Steam page.
Optimization of level graphics (still WIP) and game mechanics (still WIP). And what do you think of Carrion as the title of the game? #screenshotsaturday #carriongame #Game developer #indiedev #monogame pic.twitter.com/lRZS9gf2hR

The main developer, who works with “kroskiewicz” on Twitter, recently expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming release. This tweet indicates that the publication is not far away at all:

Carrion has been contracted by indie games label and amateur filmmaker Devolver Digital, and there’s a very good chance that the exact release date will be announced at their upcoming Devolver Direct live event.

They also limited the release to “This Summer”, at least for the Nintendo Switch version.

The game’s eponymous tentacle monstrosity appeared at E3 2019 for part of Devolver Digital’s E3 presence last year. There is a detailed Q&A with the terrible beast on Devolver’s YouTube channel
There was also this trailer from 2019 when it became known that Devolver Digital had signed the game.
This is a game that turns the tables when you fight a mysterious, powerful force instead of fending off a mysterious, powerful force. They lurk in the dark and use your hold on the wall of your tentacles to take out squads of armed but ultimately underpowered weak people. It’s dark, weird, and they perfectly matched the look of the game.
The game was made available to players in the form of several time-limited demos that are available on Steam. Here is a full playthrough of the demo released in June 2020:
Minimum and recommended specifications
Carrion is a game with a strong visual identity and a very original style, but it’s not a game that strains your system. It can be run on practically any modern PC. Here are the minimum requirements:
operating system: Windows 7 SP1
processor: 2-core processor
memory: 1024 MB RAM
graphic: compatible with OpenGL 3.0
camp: 500 MB of available space
Basically any system on which a modern web browser or simple 2D games can be executed. Every system in our PC build manual is up to the task.
We are holding our breath to find the final release date for Carrion. Summer seems to be a very safe bet at this point, and we very much suspect that the upcoming Devolver Digital event will include news on this and other interesting titles, but we have to wait and be certain.
