Gleamlight

Hello my beautiful indie darlings. This week on NEP, join Oni Dino and Karen on some big topics! We’re talking The Game Awards: is it really a good celebration of video games? Is it really the biggest night in gaming? We also discuss the Nindie Showcase from earlier this week (including weighing in on the Gleamlight backlash)—Reggie says it best: indies are the most important in the industry! We also chat Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Oni Dino has tips for the newly released, unconventional JRPG, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions.

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

One of the new games announced during this week’s Indie World Showcase is Gleamlight. Coming from publisher D3Publisher and developer DICO, it’s slated for an early 2020 launch on Switch.

Unfortunately, the reveal hasn’t gone over entirely well. Gleamlight has drawn some harsh reactions to Hollow Knight, with some gamers calling it a “ripoff”. The comparisons can be found in responses to Nintendo’s tweet about the game, as well as on YouTube. Speaking of YouTube, Nintendo’s upload of the trailer currently has has more dislikes than likes.
