With the aim of showcasing the potential of video games and interactive entertainment, London Games Festival is leveraging Gamestream’s pioneering cloud technology together with Microsoft Azure to deliver a cutting-edge cloud gaming experience for Windows PC users. For the first time in the festival’s history, millions of players all over the world will be able to simultaneously preview and play a free 60 minute demo for all titles without the need for a console or download.

Offering an exclusive preview to the games launching in 2022, players have the chance to fall down the rabbit hole of the satirical puzzler in Lab Rat; befriend magical creatures and restore the magical forest of Grimoire Groves; dive into Silt’s ocean abyss as you solve puzzles to unravel long-forgotten mysteries; solve top-down puzzles in Paper Trail’s adventure world; and jump into 1862 London to help a murdered man find justice in Mask of the Rose.

As the partner of choice for white label cloud gaming experiences, this partnership follows Gamestream’s previous success at providing a free cloud demo of ‘A Plague Tale: Innocence’ on the Focus Entertainment store during the Game Awards 2021 and is yet another example of Gamestream’s innovative technology to deliver unrivalled user experiences to its partners and end users.
