    A new Indie World Showcase means a bunch of new indie games are coming to the Nintendo Switch.

    Seeing as how we got an in depth look at Summer in Mara at the last Indie World Showcase, I have high hopes that this airing will bring news of even more absolutely wonderful Indies coming to the Nintendo Switch. The Switch already has a pretty expansive list of great indie games to peruse, from epic life sims like Stardew Valley, down to quirky party games like Moving Out.

    While not everyone is in to the whole indie scene, I certainly find that there are some real amazing works of art being shared by the indie community. Where would we be without all those innovative minds taking the risks that some of the big studios refuse to take, resulting in some of the best games in human history.

    Leaks / Rumors

    For those that don’t totally dig Indies, there is other news with this Indie World Showcase. This Indie World Showcase was once again predicted, giving the hope that the predictions of an upcoming Nintendo Direct may be a reality. (deja vu much)

    The new update for Stardew Valley will change everything…about your thoughts on moving beds.

    The latest Tweet from Concerned Ape about update 1.5 has absolutely stunned the entire community. With a revolutionary stunt, Concerned Ape has now taken gaming into the next generation as he implements the ability to move your bed in the game.

    What exactly does he mean by “move your bed”? Will we be able to rotate it? Flip it? Will it levitate? Will it become a new form of travel? Or does this just mean we will now have the ability to drastically effect the emotions of the bed? Only time will tell.

    And what’s more, what sort of implications could this have on the rest of the game. Will the creatures in the mine be brave enough to approach after you’ve performed such a feat? Will your crops grow twice as strong knowing they have such a capable horticulturalist at the helm? I can only speculate, but this certainly very exciting stuff!

    The source.

    More info

    For more information on the update, you can follow Concerned Ape on Twitter. For more news from Stardew, check out my coverage of the collectors edition.

    The developers of Fall Guys have mentioned that they would love to bring their game to more platforms.

    With the instant success that Fall Guys has seen, it comes as no surprise that the developers are considering brining their game to more consoles. The adorable and wacky battle royale is great fun for all ages, and would totally fit on the most family oriented of consoles, the Nintendo Switch.

    The developers also mentioned that they are currently focused on making the PC and PS4 versions as fun and functional as they possibly can before bringing it to new consoles.

    Witchbrook has been in development for some time now. The game created by Chucklefish, the previous publisher of Stardew Valley, revealed a brand new look for the game today!

    For anyone who may not have heard about Witchbrook yet, in this game the player will take on the role of a student inside a magic school, something a Harry Potter fan might be familiar with. During the course of the studies, players will be on a path to discovering who they really are. 

    The game will take the player on a journey through various activities that all help you work towards a successful school life. Withcbrook offers a lot of side activities next to the very busy study schedule that players will have to master.

    Witchbrook gets magical new look

    Witchbrook is often considered the Stardew Valley of magic this of course came from the fact that the company making Witchbrook used to publish Stardew Valley but the visuals of the game also used to be quite similar as well. Take a look at an older screenshot of Witchbrook – it was still called Spellbound back then.

    The game has come a long way from its early development state to today. While there isn’t a release window yet, or any word on what platforms we might get to play the game on, development on Witchbrook is well underway as seen in the evolution of the visuals alone – and I can’t wait to get my hands on this magical game!

    Witchbrook – Early development visuals

    The new screenshots as seen below demonstrate a much more colorful look as well as a slight camera change giving the game more of an isometric view similar to the original The Sims game.

    More about Witchbrook

    Witchbrook has no official release date yet but there are plenty of things we already know about the game. Head over here to find out a lot more about this magic school game!

    For even more Witch related games, take a look at the brand new gameplay trailer for Little Witch in the Woods!
