Indie Essentials 3: Spectra!

Indie Essentials 3: Spectra!

My third Indie Essentials video is out – this week’s featured indie game is Spectra!

Spectra was developed by Gateway Interactive, released in 2015 and with the eponymous soundtrack by Chipzel (which came out in 2013).

I sort of forgot to gush about the soundtrack as much as it deserves in the video – it’s one of my all-time favorite chiptunes album. The soundtrack is no longer available as DLC on Steam, but you can still buy it on Chipzel’s website.

I reviewed this game for IGN Denmark back in the mists of time (July, 2015). Back then, I gave the game a 9/10 score – and I’d still give it that today. The last point is docked for a lack of variation in the space backgrounds & the procedural generation.

Since IGN Denmark has gone the way of the dodo, I might post an English translation of the review some day – but for now, just enjoy the video :)

P.S.: I completely forgot to celebrate that this was my 200th post on Instagram. Oh well! My #IndieEssentials videos have been doing pretty ok for  themselves on Instagram – when I have 5-10 of  them, I might combine them into a listicle on YouTube or something!

Indie Essentials 2: Stardew Valley is out!

My latest Indie Essentials video is out, and you can watch it on my Instagram page!

It features the 2016 indie darling, Stardew Valley! It’s one of my new favorite feel-good games, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how multiplayer for it turns out!

Big ups to ConcernedApe for continuing to support the game with awesome free updates post-launch!

Updates: Instagram & Green Team!

Updates: Instagram & Green Team!

Oh, hello!

I didn’t see you there!

I know it’s been a while, but things have happened. First off, I decided to spend my efforts establishing myself on Instagram, and if you aren’t following me there yet, please do! I post 3-4 times a week on average, and I try to keep it relevant / interesting!

After reading about the Green Man Gaming “Green Team” affiliate program, I decided to not just post pictures on Instagram, but video as well! You can see my first IG video “Indie Essentials” (about Thomas Was Alone, one of my all-time favorite indie games) right here.

I have settled on sending out Indie Essentials every Thursday, so look out for the next video in a few days! I might also do a gaming news video once a week – though the 1 minute length definitely sets some restrictions on what and how much I can cover!

If you feel like supporting me, feel free to click the image below – it’ll save a cookie on your computer for 30 days and give me a kickback on any purchases you make on Green Man Gaming in that time!


I might also upload the videos I create for Instagram to YouTube / Twitter in the future, but for now I’m trying to just make regular video content on Instagram happen – one 58-60 second video at a time!
