Save on Indie Games for Switch in the Nindies New Year Sale

Posted by | News, Switch | No Comments

Part of the Nintendo Switch’s success is its embrace of indie games, which Nintendo has dubbed, ‘Nindies.’ To celebrate the New Year in 2018, several of last year’s indie releases on the Switch are on sale, up to 35% off. The Nindies New Year sale ends January 15.

There’s a nice mix of puzzle games, cooperative multiplayer, shoot ’em ups, and rhythm racers. I can personally give a thumbs up to Death Squared and Thimbleweed Park.

  • Death Squared – $11.24 (25% off)
  • GoNNER – $6.99 (30% off)
  • Graceful Explosion Machine – $8.99 (30% off)
  • INVERSUS Deluxe – $9.74 (35% off)
  • Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime – $9.99 (33% off)
  • Semispheres – $6.99 (30% off)
  • Severed – $9.99 (33% off)
  • Thimbleweed Park – $14.99 (25% off)
  • Thumper – $13.39 (33% off)

Nintendo is also running a contest for a chance to win free codes for each of the Nindies on sale. You add two entries into the pool by visiting the Nintendo EShop, and by retweeting the Nintendo Europe account. You’ll have to fill out your name and email as an official entry. The contest ends January 11.

In related news, all the indie devs involved in the Nindies New Year sale came together yesterday for a Reddit Ask Me Anything thread.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a Cooperative Space-Bunny Adventure

Posted by | News | One Comment

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is an upcoming couch co-op by Asteroid Base in which you and a friend go on a mission to rescue space bunnies and restore balance to the galaxy. It’s incredibly bright, incredibly silly, and incredibly fun. I first tried it out at the EMP Museum’s Indie Game Revolution exhibit, but at PAX Prime this weekend I got to talk to the developers and try out a different level, this time with my partner David. (It seemed appropriate.) Read More
