This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, Cameron Daxon, Marc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill are joined by TOVG producer Michael Barryte for a jam-packed indie extravaganza episode. Michael kicks things off with a behind-the-scenes look at Indieland 2021, a charity live stream starring the Completionist and a host of indie developers around the globe raising money to support dementia research and treatment. Not only does the show support a good cause, but it also showcases a hugely diverse lineup of indies ranging from recent hits like Axiom Verge 2 and Toem to deeper cuts like Blossom Tales and Revita. Michael gives the hosts a deep dive behind the scenes, providing a thorough look at what it takes to put a program together.
Indies take a backseat in the next segment, as Marc takes center stage to celebrate the incredible Epilogue GB Operator, a groundbreaking device that lets you play Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games in full 4k on the device and control setup of your choice. Whether you’re looking to homebrew your own creations or simply re-experience some nostalgic favorites, Epilogue’s peripheral is sure to deliver everything you’re aiming for–and more. Lastly, Cameron gives a quick spotlight on Toem, an idyllic Swedish photography adventure that feels like a playable breath of fresh air.
