Games like ElecHead will never cease to amaze me, even if I'm not personally interested in them. I just cannot imagine being to create a competent game by myself from scratch, accounting for visuals, animations, concepts, gameplay mechanics, the type of genre, music, programming, story (if there is any), quality testing, and marketing. There's just so much that not enough people stop to consider when thinking about what goes into game development, not to mention if all that is handled by a single person or not.
elec head is designed amazingly. Like it's one of the best designed puzzle games. If you're not going to play the game, just look at youtube videos. The game is masterfully crafted
i'm actually working on a indie gameit's not "that" hard to make simple indie gamesbut these are next level
What about gta 5 for the swich
Repent to Jesus Christ “He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.”John 15:2 NIVh
Another Crab's Treasure was without a doubt the highlight of the Indie World for me. Definitely picking that up. 🦀
@Value ___? ikr, it’s my favourite game ever
@jase276 That's bull. It's because Souls games are currently the trend as much as rouges are
check out going under - aggro crabs first game - its basically hades/bastion but with huge gameplay spins on itIt really worth checking out, possibly one of the best indie games ever made.
So creative and whoever came up with the title should get a raise. Everything just fits.
I am beginning to think Silksong is a ploy by Big Indie in order to draw eyes to every new Indie World that comes out
@Sebawuba yeah, three times everything
@Monmagog my man I am not undermining toby's achievements, I'm saying hollow knight is also an indie game...HK was made by 3 dudes for 30k dollars, its a very similar budget for 2 incredible games
@Time Stamp based
@Sebawuba Undertale was made by one dude for $10,000
@jase276 Imagine having a favorite game, what an inimaginable sin! clearly, games have expiration dates and whenever a new one comes out you have to leave the old one and instantly play the next!
Gunbrella and another crabs treasure are definitely the 2 standout games for me
Sleeping on ElecHead
@Repent or you will likewise perish. Nah bro. I don’t really like YHVH so I ripped him from his throne with Krishna, Mastema, and Metatron
Totally agree on both counts!
It fills me with joy to see oneshot being put out there by a big gaming company. Thank you nintendo!
@Time Stamp fun fact: litteraly every major rpgmaker games pretty much anyone with an actual "they/them" gender (well, except for omori, which both protags are actually male) are considered to be the protags of their game lol
@Time Stamp every indie game is an lgbt game
@Time Stamp pls play it... its amazingif u cant play it on switch its on steam for like 10 or 15 bucksworth itALOT
@Time Stamp "LGBT game"
@Time Stamp if i told you what it was about it would ruin the game, play it for yourself. I promise its worth it.
Can't wait to read all the item descriptions in Another Crab's Treasure to figure out the lore
i sent you a zelda theory on twitter as excipar
Lol the game not only looks interesting but also challenging and fun. Especially if that die in one hit without a shell stuff is true.
Just inmagine the EldenRing like 30 minute lore dives this could bring
Always got to appreciate the small teams that make these beautiful little games.
@SNES Nes so you like yearly games
@SNES Nes wrong. Your obviously a person who has no idea how hard it is to actually do these things and make them looks. Good. Many of them look fun and charming. You just don't like them but that's your opinion. The creators probably enjoy games like the ones they made. Also, modeling, animating, coding. Are all EXTREMELY hard to learn, learning one yet alone 3 is incredible. People take YEARS Learning to get even just GOOD at ONE of them. They aren't gonna be master pieces. Coming from an animator and a coder here, I'm still not as advanced at animation and have been trying for 4+ years. I couldn't imagine doing all 4 skills, modeling, coding, music, animation, indie games may not produce the best games, they don't have resources or a team. But don't doubt they didn't out a ton of effort in, they simply can't make more advanced games because that takes even more skill, and skill one person alone probably can't handle. That's why games have huge teams of over hundreds of people in the first place
@Zen The15 look indie games are great I don’t mind them. Some of these games were cool but the abstract looking ones made by the purple haired people weren’t good at all they looked bad and generic. How many different steam games have you seen that looked exactly like these games? It’s as if Nintendo purposefully selected these games to make indie titles look bad
@Auggy then I’m one of those “no ones”.
I am always so blown away and my heart is so warmed seeing the love and attention these developers put into their games. Such a labor of love from them - you can tell!Bravo to any of you that read this. Incredible work.
@Ricky Bobby Roode you must be fun at parties
Or it’s their job and most people work very hard at their job.

the silksong joke hurt me.although I am exited for one shot coming to switch
Yes, your tears fill my endless void in my insatiable soul that comes with being a Metroid/Valve games (that aren’t Dota or CS) fan
Youuu were never one of us....
Another Crab's Treasure looks really cute!! Definitely gonna be on my list of games to play.
IsFall guys coming to Nintendo switch
Yeah I'm actually pretty excited for the game and I really love souls like games
*sniff* Miyazaki would be so proud
Given the art style, I'd love to see "We Are OFK" made into a show. It looks beautifully animated.
Videogames are an amazing art form.
These indie world showcases are probably my favorite thing since the switch era started at Nintendo. So many cool games i probably would've accidentally missed otherwise. My wishlist will grow tenfold with all of these games! Lol
Happy to see OneShot is still getting some love, all these years later
I highly recommend Oneshot - and to anyone even slightly interested, go into it completely blind. If the premise seems fun, I promise you the game is so much better!
@BestBerry I basically did the same thing which is funny
@BestBerry the (whole?)game
@The Egery yep, I did it in a period of 48 hours. Now I have PTSD any time I hear the music lol
@BestBerry did you finish the game yet?
I bought the game on steam 2 days ago. And the switch port was announced the day after. I'm so mind blown by that (but not as mind blown as I am by the game itself!)
Ooblets looks so freaking adorable and cozy! Same with Wayward Strand (Aussie pride!) It's just what I've been craving during my study breaks 🥰
Definitely my favourite Indie World from those I’ve watched before! I’m definitely gonna be getting ElecHead and Mini Motorways, and a bunch of other games shown today looked really, really good too! Great showcase, Nintendo, and many congratulations and thanks to all the amazing indie developers & publishers out there!
@KDT Gaming bruh
To any who read my above comment - thanks! It really means a lot. I just want to stress that my above comment is entirely my opinion. Regardless of whether or not you agree with me, I hope you found a game in this showcase to look forward to! And if not, I’m sure there’s plenty more so be shown soon!
Sooooo many good games! Definitely wanna get Ooblets, Elechead, and Another Crab's Treasure
@John Wellbeloved because of how it sounds i don't think it was their intention to make it sound like a slur
@Darkvoid how are the devs toxic
I like the indie directs but come on this was easily the worst one they’ve done.
@John Wellbeloved or you know, the toxic devs.
Don't buy Ooblets
This was a really cool looking slew of games! I'll definitely be adding Batora, ElecHead, and Wildfrost to my wishlist. Soundfall and Wayward Strand look cool too, but I don't think they're quite my thing.
@Ricky Bobby Roode tabs is actually a really well done game
@Ricky Bobby Roode is fall guys coming to the Nintendo switch
Really? They all looked bad to me.
I have to agree but I don't why people say this Indie World was the worse one yet. This Indie World was alright and the games in this looked fun. I guess people was suspecting big games and I understand that but what do you suspect for this type of presentation. Just be glad that we are getting more games coming to Switch.
Oh my god! I can't believe they're bringing OneShot to the Switch! Yes!
I'm so excited for it!! 🤩
@Cuprite payed version has way more content. I'll say 2-4 times as long (depends if you do NG+ route). Play it on PC or switch. Either way, it is AMAZING.
@Cuprite, I look forward to you playing it. The payed version is also amazing.
Its been shown before, but ye. I've still yet to see the content added outside of the freeware version, so the Switch version is likely gonna be my excuse to experience it myself. :)
No one is talking about how good the cult of the lamb looks!
I saw oooblets and tabs being played years ago when they were in beta never knew they got a final version and im so exited to see it
Finnaly someone talks about tabs
*Looking at the comments here, SILT is already underrated. Looks incredible, an underwater Lovecraftian, anxiety fueled nightmare.*
It looks amazing, I might pick it up after my subnautica nightmares calm down...😅
Yep. Was expecting to see more people talking about it.
Yea it looks really good, I'm surprised how little comments there are.
It reminds me a bit of gris
TABS is an extremely underrated game. I’m so glad more people are gonna get to play it
Lots of good looking games! A few that caught my eyes where Ooblets, Elec Head, and Cult of the Lamb. Can’t wait for all of these
Guess not being a Hollow Knight fan payed off. I don’t get my hopes high. Still, more power to you guys. You’ll get Silksong someday.
Imagine not being a fan of hollow kinght
Yeah, I wasn’t expecting Silksong news this time, either. Helps to temper your expectations when you’re a Hollow Knight fan.
@Wyatt Rosebrock thank you
@Ayden Rozzelle they are both great
Play Hollow knight
Another crab's treasure looks the most intriguing out of all
They have an among us plush bro it’s going to be amazing
Yeah that's the one game I got very excited for when it was shown in the direct
Elechead, Gunbrella, and Another Crab's Treasure were the highlights of this for me.
OPUS: Echoes of Starsong didn't get much screen time in that montage, but it is a really good story. The gameplay is kind of just a vehicle to drive the story, with some light resource management and exploration mechanics. But the story absolutely knocks it out of the park. As long as you're not the type of player who skips all the cutscenes, definitely give it a closer look.
It's cool that TABS is finally coming to the switch!
I love indie games, they can make new ideas and take gameplay, narrative/worldbuilding and art style risks that no AAA game companies would make
@Ricky Bobby Roode The only thing AAA has over indie's anymore is graphics. Projects made by passionate devs will usually trump over projects made by overworked, soulless devs.
@Ricky Bobby Roode your telling me that AAA games are better than indie well lets talk about it most AAA games either A focus on graphics more than they focus on gameplay or b it focus on microtransaction and nonthing else. Now am i saying that all AAA games are like that no ghost of tshuima and horizon forbidden west for example, but most are atleast with a bad indie game i can still see thier love and care they putted into it but with AAA games i don't see that at all
@Ricky Bobby Roode These all seem awful. Especially "We Are OFK", yuck.
Yeah but most of the time with the exception of Super Giant they’re not anywhere near as good as AAA games.
Ooblets and another crabs treasure are definitely games i will get! I love the cute farm-y feel of ooblets and another crabs treasure just looks plain fun! DEFINITELY picking this up! Also, if u havent played it yet, i def Reccomend TABS!
Presentations like these ones show how great indie games can come from teams, big or small, given the time they absolutely need to make them.
As an Ozzie I'm so excited for Wayward Strand. Looks really unique and fun.
Thanks for all indie game developers. Keep going for your dreams!
Soundfall and another crabs treasure look really good!
So many charming and fun looking games, I don't think there was a single one didn't interest me at least a little.
i LOVE ooblets, it looks amazing,
Gunbrella looks sick, kinda sad that it will take about a year for it to release.
It looks amazing
Why show it so early?
The games herr actually look really fun, cult of the lamb and mini motorways is on my list
One Shot. Big recommendation. I don't know what they thought leaving it for the end. Amazing soundtrack.
@Ricky Bobby Roode okay than?? what?? - Duster (C.C)
You couldn’t pay me to play mini motorways.
I repeat: I definitely recommend watching the Japanese Indie World, too. It gave a closer look at the games in the montage on top of having different games.
Ugh, Japanese Indie World doesn't mean every title could get their release outside Japan. Some titles might also be exclusive to Japan as well.
W They're significantly better, he just has no taste.
Hawshi Magi☆TV Then you should get a pair of glasses.
@Hawshi Magi☆TV could they be any worse than these?
I always love watching the Indie World Showcases :)
Mini Motorways was the highlight for me. I love how many possible traffic scenario's you can create. Its soo coool : DDD
I love watching these! The creativity is out of this world!
For me, the ones that caught my interest were ElecHead, Wildfrost (Chucklefish tho...), Gunbrella, Cult of the Lamb, and, of course, Oneshot. Maybe also Batora, not sure.Out of those, the one I'm most interested in is Oneshot, cause I just love that game so much (And haven't seen any of the new content added by the Steam version, so it getting put on Switch with presumably even more content is a great excuse for me to do so).
@Cuprite oh geez
@marioprime99 It should be fine in this case since they're just *publishing* the game, but they have a history of overworking their devs. Crunch issues, basically.I will say tho, idk if that's changed or not, but hopefully it has.
What happened with Chucklefish?
Gunbrella looks amazing!!! Love the graphic style!
Gunbrella got me unprepared, i adored GatoRoboto and am looking forward to be playing this dark and vibrant pixel cowboy game. ElecHead looks genious like one of those visionairy GameBoy games that pushed the mechanical boundaries by making complexity intuitive with the help of visual minimalism.
What you think of ofk
Is fall guys coming to Nintendo switch
these sets are incredible, its insane how far miamoto has come
Nintendo are killing it with indie games, look forward to playing We Are OFK, Another Crab's Adventure, Gibbon & Opus!
Esse vídeo é muito bom eu amei muito bom Nintendo vcs é o melhor 💓
Another Crabs Treasure, Ooblets and Gunbrella are straight nabs for me. Pretty fun showing today overall
Ooblets is totally the kind of game I'd get on Switch. I love the look and feel of it!
One of the best indie world we have gotten so far. TABS is a banger of a game and all of the others look AMAZING too
it's so cool seeing ElecHead coming to Switch I remember playing the demo for the game a couple years ago and loving it, I still have yet to play the full game but hey maybe I'll get it on Switch
It's wonderful how many different things there are, Gumbrella, Crab's Treasure, ElecHead... i'm always amazed how indie games bring universes you never imagined or never stopped to think about
Lots of cool little gems, another solid Indie World!!
This is one of the best indie showcases yet. It not only showed games I'm interested in, but will actually buy (another crabs treasure).
Wow such a good Indie Showcase. Games that stuck out for me were Elechead, Gumbrella, Mini Motorway, and that Crab Souls Game!
I've been playing Ooblets on EPIC since it was released. Super stoked to support them on the switch!
OneShot is a must play title. Also, I heard a lot of good things for OPUS. 😁
Elechead, gunbrella and that crab game look amazing!
@e e garbage
The only good ones
Check, check, and check! ✅✅✅
I’ve been waiting SO LONG for ooblets to come to switch! It’s literally the perfect game for it!
i love watching roguelike deckbuilders. I'm not great at playing them, I have steam World quest but I never got too far, but they're so cool to look at!
Indie games have an special place in my heart, this direct just reminded me
Eu não tenho console de Nintendo eu amei esses jogos 💓💓
Looking forward to Gunbrella, Cult of the Lamb, Elec Head, Another Crab's Treasure, and Soundfall!
Of all things, I am incredibly hype for Ooblets
21:36"I just said it's supposed to be approachable""Oh, what if every time you dodge-rolled, there was like a 1% chance you just trip and fall over"Best moment of the entire event.
Smash bros brawl?
After Going Under, I'm super excited about Another Crab's Treasure. Aggro Crab is killing it 🔥
SoundFall looks neat but I'm not good with rythmn. Yet wow, that is a lot of weapons and options for replay and finding best gear.
One of the best indie showcases we’ve gotten! Wow! These all look incredible!
@Time Stamp tf are you doing here then
Lol no, especially not We Are OFK.
Love the showcases, but at least allowing for placeholder items for the store for each of these would make it way easier to remember for desired future titles. Elechead looks amazing and i wish i could reserve my spot for it.
The team who developed Another Crab's Treasure was soooo cool.
Card Shark looks pretty great. Can’t wait to try out the demo. 👍
Nice! Elechead and another crabs treasure looks pretty cool!
Thank you Nintendo for always making fun games for ALL children all over the planet 🌏 we thank you! Sincerely the people of planet earth! ありがとうございました 🙏🏿🙏🏾🙏🏽🙏🏼
23:26 Very Happy to see Idol Manager coming to the switch!
We are OFK looks soooo fun
Would love to see those games come out on the nintendo switch ❤️
ElecHead and Another Crab's Treasure were the two best to me, gonna have to check them out.Almost forgot about Gunbrella.
Ooh, I'm excited for ElecHead, Silt, and Another Crab's Treasure! Wayward Strand also seems super intriguing, though it's not my usual cup of tea
I love Going Under, so I have high hopes for Another Crab’s Treasure. Hopefully it’s have the same composer.
If Gunbrella gets a physical release i'll buy it for sure!
@Nick Robbins don't know. But at least it gives people a chance to get a preview well in advance. Plenty of support thus far it seems.
Isn't that a 2023 release, why did they show it so early?
At this point Silksong is pretty much a huge Nintendo direct title to show off, not on indie directs anymore. No E3 this year, but June could still be a time for summer game news and maybe Nintendo will have something to show us.
Yeah theres no way it just get plugged randomly amongst other low grade indies
Some of this games were really impressing. Elechead, Gunbrella and Another Crab's Treasure were my 3 pick games.
Honestly been waiting for cult of the lamb since it was first announced and I am so hype for it. But also that wildfrost game getting some adventure time vibes.
Another crab's treasure seems really cool. The dig at Brawl's tripping mechanic seemed brave for a video on nintendo's youtube channel.
That crab game looks awesome! Definitely playing that.
The only game I'm excited to play on the Switch as showcased in this presentation is Mini Motorways. Love it on Steam, will love it better on Switch.
Indie directs never cease to amaze me
My personal stand outs include soundfall, gunbrella, wayward strand, and another crabs treasure. Of course I've also been interested in oneshot for a long time, but was unfortunately never able to get to it. Hope that changes soon though.
my favorite of the bunch was definitely Hollow Knight Silksong
I'm interested in a lot of the games shown (I think some people are being a bit too salty about these games just because of Silksong) and I love that Nintendo is spotlighting more indie games and development teams, but I gotta say it was painful listening to that narration at times lol. Made it kinda hard to sit through.
I didn't see anyone being salty.
This x1000. The games are always interesting, diverse, colourful, nothing wrong with them.The voiceover? Looks like they're talking to dogs! Read the room Nintendo...
Yeah the narration sounded EXTREMELY drawn out and unnatural...
