Game news Choo-Choo Charles: Thomas the train hardcore version returns to Summer Game Fest 2022, nightmarish gameplay
In the video game, all means are good to get out of the game, including distorting childish franchises and damaging our nostalgic memories. Choo-Choo Charles does just that with formidable efficiency.
A not so cool train
Remember: in October 2021, the Choo-Choo Charles video game was making a huge buzz on the web thanks to its tortured concept.
Its announcement trailer then revealed a survival-horror in which the player embodies a desperate character, having to cross an entire forest map in a locomotive… but pursued by a spider train straight out of hell. You have to see it to believe it, but this game developed by the tiny studio Two Star Games is indeed a reality.
It was therefore during the Summer Game Fest 2022 that Choo-Choo Charles made his comeback, during the show reserved for independent developers which followed the opening ceremony. We didn’t especially expect to see it there, and yet: proof that this totally wacky title commands attention.
We can thus admire a lichette of gameplay (to be found above), showing off some game mechanisms. We will indeed have to get out of our train at our own risk to recover the resources necessary for the proper functioning of the machine. ; similarly, phases of machine gun shooting are planned to repel Charles, who we definitely do not want in our close circle.
Choo-Choo Charles is coming to PC this year.
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
How to follow the Summer Game Fest 2022?
On HelloSolar.info, we will react live to announcements from the LeStream channel alongside Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée in particular. The show will also be directly visible as a teaser on HelloSolar.info’s homepage. And for those who prefer reading, you will of course find our news throughout the conference.

What is the program for Summer Game Fest 2022?
Among the games not to miss, there is in particular the heir to Dead Space, The Callisto Protocol, which shows us its first gameplay images.

Geoff Keighley further announced: “We have a few new game announcements for this show and hopefully a few surprises if all goes well. But it’s definitely a show that mostly focuses on things that are foretold.”
