NXpress Nintendo Podcast 262: Indie World December 2021 Reactions

Indie World gave us a lot to talk about –40 minutes, to be exact.



Indie World

This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill serve up a compact yet jam-packed episode brimming with hot takes about Nintendo’s last Direct presentation of the year, December 15’s Indie World showcase. Stuffed with incredible indie games from start to finish, this latest direct had a little something for everyone (especially if you’re a fan of a certain pup with a paintbrush). Starting things off with a bang with the Chrono Trigger spiritual successor Sea of Stars, the gang walks through every announcement of the show, including the emotional gut punch of After Love EP, the delightful surprise of Dungeon Munchies, the boardgame mysteries of Let’s Play! Oink Games, and the horrifying debut of Omori. There may not have been a giant dump of shadow drop releases as in previous directs, but at least Spring 2022 will be positively stacked!

In the final segment, Cameron takes a break from all the indie conversation by talking about another indie game–none other than Devolver Digital’s Loop Hero, which has just made its long-awaited debut on Switch. As tough as it may be to put into words, Loop Hero delivers a strategic experience unlike anything else on the market–and of course, it’s a perfect fit for Switch!

There’s plenty of nostalgia and feedback that will resonate with vintage game collectors; meanwhile modern games are sprinkled in and each week our show revolves around a central theme.
