@Lroy Plants VS Zombies isn’t indie, since it’s made by popcap, which is owned by EA. I could be wrong though.

No, no. You're quite right. I just meant, I would love to play that game again. I know the original developer has long since been gobbled up corporately and made unrecognisable from its indie origins. Was just dreaming not predicting it would actually be shown or anything.

I would like to see Pyre, Bastion and Transistor come to Switch. Those games look lovely.

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

Would be cool to see in a future Direct or something though, definitely! I always think that another of their games - Peggle - would be right at home on the system as well...hope Pop Cap pop a few ports (or new games) on the Switch one day!

My excitement is tempered by the fact that previous Nindie Presentations have included several games where the release date is (a) not ready to be announced, and (b) ages away e.g. wasn't Runner 3 in the first presentation for Switch... and it's still not released.

What I'm really hoping is that a new wave of nindies will result in some significant reductions for a lot of games that have been out a while and will be struggling for attention.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

What about games like Subnautica and Astroneer? I think Switch needs more of these kind of open world procedurally generated exploration games.

@antster1983 Good list - the number of yet to be released is bigger than I thought...

I hope we don't get any more of that - just give me games due to be released in the next 3-6 months max, preferably with the release date.

@gcunit Of the 62 games I listed, 21 have yet to be released. That's about a third. Still more than a lot of people expected!

That weird online arena shooter game also hasn't come out yet. MURPHY'S LAW? That was in a past Nindies showcase I think?

There is a KINGDOM game out on Switch. Not sure if it is a renaming of Two Crowns or not?

@Lroy I completely forgot about that game, Nintendo heavily promoted in the September directs but there hasn't been more news on it for quite some time. Hopefully we'll get some info on it soon as it looks pretty promising.

Mario Galaxy is ten years old, and now I feel old.

MsJubilee

I still wonder what happened to Kentucky Route Zero? They did say it was coming In early 2018,Now we're in March and we still haven't heard a thing about it.

@Lroy You mean Morphies Law? Last time i checked on their Twitter they were still working on it.

I've died,there is no more me.

If it's bitter at the start. Then it's sweeter in the end.

Reading Metro 2034 & The Saga of Tanya The Evil light novel, also reading the manga( both are stellar may i add).

I’m looking at the YouTube live chat and I’m seeing people wanting Smash and Animal Crossing.

What a world we live in.

Yeah, that's odd. There's Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3 to be far more excited about!

I haven't been following many indie games in the last year but I was a little disappointed to how short the presentation was. I can't wait for Bad North but unfortunately that looks like the only game that really stood out for me.

They announced bunch of games but nothing really caught my eye. It certainly wasn't as good as the last Nindie presentation with Steamworld Dig 2, Flipping Death, Runner 3, etc.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:
