Independent game publisher Versus Evil will show off six varied and high quality games at the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles later this month.

“We are proud to be able to host such an incredible group of indie developers and their quality games at this year’s E3,” said Versus Evil General Manager Steve Escalante. “Our line-up of The Banner Saga 2, Skyshine’s Bedlam, Afro Samurai 2, Armikrog, Guild of Dungeoneering and Kyn gives us eagerly awaited sequels, spiritual successors to all-time classics, and innovative newcomers all under one roof.  These games and their teams will contribute to one of the best E3s for high caliber, independently developed games which deserve to be on this world class stage.”

The full Versus Evil E3 line-up includes:

Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma, Volume 1 (PS4/Xbox One/PC/Mac - Redacted Studios)

As the only continuation of the story from the wildly popular Afro Samurai series, Redacted Studios’ Afro Samurai 2 continues the action-packed saga of Afro Samurai. The Afro Samurai 2 trilogy will release in three volumes and follows the path of Kuma, one of Afro’s closest childhood friends. After witnessing the slaughter of all those he loved and facing near death himself, Kuma has risen from the ashes as a cybernetically enhanced killing machine, with one goal in mind, bloody revenge..

Armikrog (PC/Mac - Pencil Test Studios)

Armikrog is a unique stop motion clay animated point and click adventure game from the creators of Earthworm Jim and the Neverhood. Follow the adventures of space explorer Tommynaut and his blind alien talking dog Beak-Beak, as they unravel the mysteries of the fortress that holds them captive through exploration and puzzle solving!

The Banner Saga 2 (PC/Mac - Stoic)

A playable demo will debut from the eagerly awaited sequel to the critically-acclaimed award winning The Banner Saga and will expand on the previous game’s deep Viking-inspired story, introduce a cast of new characters and offer improved graphics and features.

Guild of Dungeoneering (PC/Mac - Gambrinous)

From Irish developer Gambrinous, Guild of Dungeoneering is a turn-based dungeon crawler with a twist: instead of controlling the hero you build the dungeon around him. Using cards drawn from your Guild decks, players lay down rooms, monsters, traps and of course loot.  Meanwhile the hero is making his own decisions on where to go and what to fight.

Kyn (PC/Mac/Linux -Tangrin Entertainment)

Description: Kyn has been developed by just two guys in the Netherlands over the last four years and offers gamers a fully-fledged traditional RPG experience.  In a world where Viking mythology collides with magic, gamers will be able to explore the world in this fast paced role playing game while controlling up to six warriors in party based combat. 

Skyshine’s Bedlam (PC/Mac - Skyshine Games)

Skyshine’s Bedlam is a hard hitting roguelike strategy game that takes place in a unique but dangerous post-apocalyptic world. Indie developer Skyshine Games have created a unique universe with fast-paced combat and a wealth of choices in a randomly generated world, all of which combine to make an incredibly replayable game.
