No question about it, Nintendo has become a strong supporter of the indie game scene. The same company that spawned the world’s most popular video game franchises will be showcasing a multitude of promising indie titles at IndieCade 2014 in Culver City, CA.
The following is a list of indie games that will be shown:
- Affordable Space Adventures (Wii U)
- Beatbuddy (Wii U)
- Chariot (Wii U)
- Costume Quest 2 (Wii U)
- The Fall (Wii U)
- Runbow (Wii U)
- Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse (3DS and Wii U)
- Shovel Knight (3DS and Wii U)
- Sportsball (Wii U)
- Stealth Inc. 2 (Wii U)
- Swords & Soldiers II (Wii U)
- Whoa, Dave! (3DS)
- Xeodrifter (3DS)
In a press e-mail Nintendo sent out, the company had referred to the listed games as “Nindies.” It’s a term I quite like and I hope it’ll catch on within the indie community. Nintendo will also be participating in multiplayer tournaments for Sportsball and Runbow that will be held at IndieCade Night Games on October 11th from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Prizes will be awarded to winners and there will be giveaways.
