Indie Essentials 11: Seasons after Fall

Indie Essentials 11: Seasons after Fall

After a short break to deal with personal issues, Indie Essentials is back!

This week’s episode features the very pretty Seasons after Fall!

In this game, you play a semi-demi-not-quite-god, known as Little Seed. A mysterious voice guides you, and a friendly fox allows you to possess it in order to interact with the physical world.

The game has a very sweet atmosphere, which evokes something that feels very nostalgic to me, for some reason.

The game is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One – and if you want to support me, you can buy it [RIGHT HERE] with my affiliate link from Green Man Gaming!

Indie Essential 10: Punch Club!

Indie Essential 10: Punch Club!

LOUD NOISES!

Tonight marks the tenth Indie Essentials video I have made for my Instagram channel!

This week’s game is Punch Club, a neat-o little boxing/fighting/life sim game!

I guess this means I gotta start thinking of doing a longer-form video for YouTube, compiling these shorter videos into something more shareable (maybe?) than videos posted on Instagram.

Over the course of these weeks, I have also started livestreaming over on my Twitch channel – and it would mean the world to me if you would throw a follow my way! So far, I’ve been streaming Bloodborne, Monster Hunter World and a bit of Overwatch. I’m planning on streaming more indie games on my Twitch, so feel free to let me know if there’s something in particular you’dΒ  like to see!

For now, thanks for watching/reading, and see you next week!

Indie Essentials 9: Owlboy!

Indie Essentials 9: Owlboy!

A mix of real life and bad planning is to blame for this week’s Indie Essentials being out a day late – my apologies!

Owlboy is a video game that was ten years in the making, developed by Dpad Studio. The ten years development time really shows – it’s a great game!

It’s a Metroidvania game where you play Otus, a mute Owlboy. Owls, in this world, are the people / creatures (I’m not really sure tbh) who protect their villages in the sky from SKY PIRATES. Yes, you read that right – sky friggin pirates! :D

It’s got “high-bit” graphics, meaning pixel graphics that look super neat. The chiptuney soundtrack is really nice, and does a great job of setting the mood. Lastly, the gameplay is tight – I can’t wait to get all the way through the game. This might be one of those games where I actively try to 100% it on Steam.
