EXP IndieCast #1: Explanations and Stargazing

The Experience Point Podcast is branching out. Scott and I have decided to put on our swim trunks and wade into the world of independent games with a brand new monthly podcast dedicated to the too often overlooked members of the games industry. At least once a month, we will explore two games that have caught our eye. We will also supplement this talks, when possible, with interviews with their designers. This week on the show, Scott and I discuss the rocket-boosting madness of No Time To Explain and the infinitely recursive realm of Inside A Star Filled Sky. Check out the games in the show notes and join the discussion in the comments section below.

  1. Awesome! Way better than comparing absolutist monarchies to different kinds of cakes. Suggestions? Well, Zeno Clash used to be an indie game...and RPS, Destructoid and more are abuzz about Iconoclasts, so there's that. Looking forward to more. Cheers!

  2. This was a great idea for a change of paste podcast, I hope to here more indie podcasts in the future.

  3. Great. We're glad you all enjoyed it. Also, I'm playing Iconoclasts now. It's pretty great, so we may talk about it in the future.

  4. I meant to write change of pace not paste. also I downloaded iconoclasts last night and so far it is very fun. this is why I feel like the indiecast was a great idea because if not for it I would have never heard about these games.

    Isn't it cute? Its art design actually reminds me of Aquaria, and the two share common roots.
