Indie Essentials 8: Damsel!

Indie Essentials 8: Damsel!

Indie Essentials is back!

Episode 8 features Damsel, the Early Access game by Screwtape Studios (which came out this week)!

I’ve been following the game’s Twitter account (and progress) for some while, so it’s been a pleasure to finally get my hands on the game. The game has a lot going for it already – the cartoony graphics, and especially the character designs, are just awesome. The soundtrack has a synthwavey feel, which fits the fast-paced gameplay quite well!

I personally look forward to achievements being implemented – something I know is on its way, thanks to the Steam forums for Damsel. I would also love to see some actual story content in-game via cutscenes – or see the game go the TF2 / Overwatch route, and create online comic books for the game to flesh out the world.

The game is 10 euros on Steam, and despite a few bugs, the game has a ton of potential.

Bloodborne & livestreaming

Bloodborne & livestreaming

I’ve decided that I’d like to create some longer-form video content than “just” my Indie Essentials videos on Thursdays. That’s why I decided to livestream Bloodborne, when I got the urge to play it again, the other day.

I’ll be archiving my results on my YouTube, so you can catch them later if you miss them due to my being sort of impulsive and not so planning-ahead-like on my livestreaming. Apologies for the sound levels in the first clip – I mostly cleared Central Yharnam, using just the microphone on my PS Camera. I couldn’t find a good place to doΒ  the sound levels, but I think I’ve solved that for the next time I stream!

Indie Essentials 7: Nex Machina

Indie Essentials 7: Nex Machina

Indie Essentials 7 is Nex Machina!

This game released in June 2017 on PC and PS4, and was made by Housemarque.

The game features a cablepunk take on the cyberpunk aesthetic. If you took away all the neon and lasers, I could definitely see some of this fit into the Alien franchise!

As a heads up, I’m going on vacation to Japan! I’ll try to record videos in advance for the next two thursdays, but if no Indie Essentials 8 & 9 pop up in the next 2 weeks, that’ll be why.
