About This Episode

Guess what nerds, Kate is back from her wilderness exploring. Just in time for some exciting news from Nintendo! The Nintendo Indie World Showcase brought some interesting games to the table. From the weapon dating simulator Boyfriend Dungeon, to Eastward: the pixel-esque puzzle game, to Kate’s personal favorite, Garden Story where you play as a grape trying to unify a community, the showcase brought something for everyone whether they’re into indie games or not. That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.
