Nintendo releases nine demos of upcoming games for new Nindies@Home program

Nindies unite!

In recent years, Nintendo has shifted the focus of their E3 proceedings to be more inclusive of off-site audiences, and we're already seeing manifestations of this ahead of their main showing on Tuesday.

This morning, the company announced a new program called Nindies@Home, allowing those unable to be present at E3 to experience preview builds of upcoming games. The handful of titles — nine in all — are as follows:

  • Typoman by Headup Games
  • Runbow by 13AM Games
  • forma.8 by MixedBag
  • Freedom Planet by GalaxyTrail
  • Soul Axiom by Wales Interactive
  • Lovely Planet by tinyBuild Games
  • Extreme Exorcism by Ripstone
  • RIVE by Two Tribes
  • Mutant Mudds Super Challenge by Renegade Kid

The demos will be available for a full week until June 22, and as an added incentive to download, you'll net a 15% discount off the final version for the first month of its release.

I plan on going interstellar, as the two planets are calling my name.
