If you already watched the Nintendo Indie World showcase, were you pleasantly surprised by any of its reveals? Or was something missing that you were really expecting? Personally, I was a bit lukewarm on the Indie World showcase, but I’m intrigued by Baldo in particular. Also, the announcements of Blair Witch and Sky: Children of the Light, the latter of whom comes from the developer of Journey, make for eyebrow-raising ports.
