Indie games have been absolutely exploding all over the Nintendo Switch platform, and we couldn’t be happier! Enjoy these selections from some of our favorite titles, and maybe you’ll discover some new ones!
It’s time for another live-streamed episode! All music this week has been picked by our lovely Patreon subscribers, thank you! Pizza is a big topic around the R&P office cooler, but our conversation goes all over the place. There’s some excellent “clean-rapping”, talk about comfort-games, and we play a quick game of Patreon subscriber survival horror!
If you would like to get involved with these episodes, and get access to the live-stream, head over to our Patreon page!
Also a BIG shout-out to Jamaal from Kee Jay music for his excellent Kingdom Hearts music! Go check out the rest of his work here!
We are seeing so many great new games recently with a retro-aesthetic, and we love it! Whether it’s pixelized 16-bit style artwork, or classic gameplay mechanics, it’s something that we’re drawn to immediately. The music is no different, borrowing from the sounds of past hardware and putting an original spin on it. We talk about music that makes you anxious, human emotions as power-ups, and Pernell does a food dance. Enjoy!
