Our New Home For Nindies
By Phil Myth
We’ve covered shedloads of indie games over the past 12 months of Nintendo Village. In 2019 we’re hoping to bring you more coverage of the bigger games, but that doesn’t mean we’re neglecting the Nindies, oh no. In fact, we’re launching a whole new section of the site dedicated to indie titles.
Our new Nindie Zone will be your one-stop-shop for all things indie. We’ll have full reviews of all the biggest indie releases, coverage of upcoming indie titles from the various events we go to, as well as our Nindie Nation podcast, gameplay footage, livestreams and more.
Not only that, but we’re also launching a brand new YouTube segment for Nindie Zone called Nindie Rundown. This will be quickfire impressions of a handful of indie games we’ve been playing in the past week or so. There’s that many games releasing for the Switch day after day, that we just don’t have the time to do full reviews for all of them. We still think it’s important to give people an impression of these titles though, so that’s why we’ve come up with this format.
As these games won’t have been played to completion, we won’t be giving them full scores - it’s just not fair to do so. But whichever Villager is covering the game, will have sunk a couple of hours into it in order to get a decent feel for what it’s all about. We will sometimes include games that have a full review on site too, and that will appear on both the Nindie Zone page, and alongside all our other reviews in the Review section. Episode One of this new show is live now, and covers Gris, Travis Strikes Again, Project Highrise, Legend of Evil, Conduct Together, and Planet RIX-13.
