Indie Essential 10: Punch Club!

Indie Essential 10: Punch Club!


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’d  like to see!

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

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!
