Indie Live Expo 2020

The first of our “not-E3” digital events of June began with the Indie Live Expo on Saturday morning. I didn’t get to watch it live, but caught up on the news afterwards. So let’s take a look at the Indie Live Expo 2020 news round-up.

After a short introduction about indie games, they began with a concert. I’m not sure why the drummer was shirtless, but it started with Undertale music and then went into some other pretty good songs, so I enjoyed it more than a lot of the musical interludes during game presentations.

Then the showcase began with the announcement of a Japanese version of Children of Morta.

Next, some new games were revealed: a mech action game called Nimbus Infinity (sequel to Project Nimbus) and life sim game Chinese Parents.

Updates were announced for Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth and, a little later in the presentation, Gensokyo Night Festival.

The next game announced looked somewhat interesting, a narrative adventure game called Sumire, although since the game’s description says you’ll have a single day to accomplish tasks in, I’m not sure I’d enjoy it (especially if time passes as you walk around).

They showed another life sim called Picontier, and then a trailer for Craftopia. Craftopia looks pretty ambitious, but these sorts of open-ended crafting games aren’t really my thing.

The rest was a celebration of indie games in general, with showcases of games already out, as well as a Steam announcement for Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 and the announcement of a side-scrolling action game called Cogen: Sword of Rewind.

Overall, it definitely had a different feel from an E3 showcase, and even more so since the hosts were more providing commentary and explanations than strictly translating it. None of the games particularly interested me personally, but what did you think? We’ve got more events coming later this week, so stay tuned for the rest of this year’s not-E3 coverage!
