The Nintendo Switch has captured the hearts of many gamers around the world. In addition to excellent first party titles from the Mario and Zelda series, there are countless top-quality indie games available on the eShop or in limited-run game cards. To top it off, these games often have incredible music written by up-and-coming composers! On this very portable episode, Cam Werme swings by the VGMbassy and joins Ed to talk about some of their favorite Switch indies. Don’t have a Switch? Don’t fret! Many of these games can be found on other platforms too!
A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!
