Indie Essentials 6: Forced Showdown!

The latest instalment of Indie Essentials is out! This week is the Danish game “Forced Showdown” by BetaDwarf!


I originally got this game with my The Indie Box subscription, but I’ve followed BetaDwarf for a few years, due to my interest in the #dkgame scene. I really like the way BetaDwarf integrates their community in their games, like adding Twitch integration and releasing free DLC based on community goals.

This game plays with either keyboard & mouse, or a controller. My personal preference is playing this kind of game with a controller, especially since I got myself a wireless one for my pc!

Forced Showdown is a neat game, and it’s on sale in the Steam Holiday Sale right now, if you’re interested!
