Holly’s 3 most anticipated indies coming to Switch

The other staff members and I found it both difficult and easy to decide upon our lists of 3 most anticipated indie games coming to Nintendo Switch. Difficult how? Choosing just 3 is pretty hard! Easy how? The enormous variety of Nindies coming this year meant that we didn’t have to argue about who got to talk about which games! My list is as follows: Continue reading “Holly’s 3 most anticipated indies coming to Switch”

Guiding first steps

As a father of two young children I know that sooner or later they will start playing video games, exploring the internet and want a smartphone to chat with their friends twenty-for-seven.

From that flowed a series of possibilities that were eventually shaped into the final concept. Continue reading “Shadow Puppeteer: Interview with Sarepta Studio”

A slew of indie games are heading to Nintendo Switch this year; during today’s Nindie Showcase, Nintendo spotlighted many of the ones that will be taking advantage of the Switch-exclusive HD rumble feature:

Overcooked

This one is a couch co-op game in which 1-4 players need to prepare and serve meals for impatient restaurant customers. HD rumble will provide the physical impression of ingredients being chopped, soup sloshing around, and more. It’ll be out on Nintendo Switch sometime this year.
