– Hey, I bet right nowyou've got a lot of free time on your hands and not a lotof games on your Switch.
Look, I know Animal Crossing'sgreat and everything, and I'm having a lottafun playing with friends and streaming it over overon twitch.
But I know that it's not for everybody.
And, besides Animal Crossing, there's not much going on in the Switch space right now.
Or so it might seem! If you'd look past your nose, you might find some solidindie gems out right now that deserve way more recognition.
And what better time togive them that recognition than right now? Boy, that last NintendoDirect was great, wasn't it? (crowd booing)Alright, well, we'll get some new firstparty stuff eventually but for right now, we gotta make do with games like “GoodJob!” which was announced and released during thatlast Nintendo Direct.
This is a weird one, itwas published by Nintendo but developed by a companycalled Paladin Studios which has only ever reallydone licensed mobile games.
Which doesn't sound too promising.
But “Good Job!” is great, its a sort of isometric puzzle game.
You play this littleindustrial sign looking guy who just started workingfor his dad's company.
You're given tasks that you have to do in just the absolute(click)iest way possible.
It doesn't matter how you get it done, as long as you get it done.
The puzzles are very simple, but the act of completingthe puzzles is super fun.
It's about the journey, not the destination.
For example, when you find out part of getting the projector hooked up is blasting it through the wall.
(glass smashing) It's a neat little surprise.
I did not expect that to be the way to catapult into the wall.
“Good Job!” just came out, but it's already got an 85 on Metacritic, and you can get it now for $20 on the eShop.
Could you move, could you guys move? Just for a minute, thank you.
You guys can sit up here, you guys can sit up here.
That was you, you guys did that.
That was you guys.
Hey, we're good, right? Full disclosure, the wholereason I'm making this video is because I wanted an excuseto talk about “Dogurai”.
I only heard about this game because of an email that I got.
Normally, I completely ignore emails that don't have a picture in the body, and I especially ignore PRemails from Gmail accounts.
But, something about Game Boy, and dog, and the simplicity of thisemail had me intrigued.
I was sucked in by the Game Boy aesthetic and you all know I'm asucker for 2D platformers.
The fact that the game was on sale for just $2 and 50 cents at the time sealed the deal for me.
It plays exactly like agood Game Boy game, too.
They even used the exactright pixel density.
144 up and 160 across.
You've gotta love theirattention to detail.
The fact that you cantell that that's a dog even though the face isonly like five pixels, is kind of amazing.
The art style is fantasticgiven the limitations.
Anyway, it plays sort oflike a mix between “Megaman” and “Ninja Gaiden”, it's a very simple game.
I mean, you shouldn'texpect even this much for just $2 and 50 cents.
You can control the gamewith just two buttons.
And certain enemies and bosses activate quick timeevents for more damage.
I'm normally not one for quick time events but these are very satisfying.
Anyway, this is too new and unknown to have a Metacritic score, but it's currently on the eShop for just $2 and 50 cents.
It's normally $5.
I don't know how longthe sale's gonna be for, but at that price, this is theone you should probably buy the most out of everything on this list.
For $2 and 50 cents, just slap it on like it's part of the impulse buy rack.
As long as you like retro-style2D sidescrollers, of course.
You might remember “Creature in the Well” from a Nintendo Direct back in 2019.
It snuck out on the Switch in September and I had no idea.
I was intrigued by this game because it's a top-down hack and slash but instead of fighting enemies, you're kind of just ina big pinball machine or pinball adventure game.
So, I didn't get to try it until now.
The concept is super unique.
There's a lot of this world to explore, and a lot of differentweapons you can find that vary the gameplay.
I don't think it deserves aspot on the top of this list, but if you want somethingreally different, or you just like pinball games, or maybe brick breakergames like “Breakout”, maybe you were the kingof the Blackberry games back in the day, then you mightjust be the perfect person to pick up “Creature in the Well”.
It's currently $15 in the eShop and has a Metacritic score of 76.
“Super Crush K.
” cameout back in January and I didn't hear aboutit until one of you guys told me about it in aTwitch stream the other day.
You should be memorized by the art style, it's cute as (click)! Your objective is to safeyour kidnapped cat, Chubs, from some rando super villain.
It's a 2D platforming beat 'em up/shooter.
You use all of your abilities that you accumulate overthe first few levels to combo through your opponents.
Your combos get ranked per screen.
The goal is to chainenough combos together to get an S rank, or to justget the highest rank you can.
So you're constantly using allof your different abilities as fast as you can to rack up points.
It's a lot of fun.
After a certain point youcan just turn off your brain.
This is probably one of those games you'd wanna beat in justa couple of sittings.
I feel like I wouldn'twanna drop this game and pick it back up later because I might forget allthe different abilities and how they chain together.
Or, at least, it might take a while to get used to the game again.
Also, it looks like thereprobably isn't very much variety in the environments, but the art style and the pretty comic book-ycut scenes make up for it.
And of course, the satisfying and addictive gameplay loop.
It's currently just $15 on the eShop and has a Metacritic score of 77.
I guess we should probably talk about “Exit the Gungeon”, shouldn't we? It was Nintendo's one more thing in their last Indie World presentation.
Apparently it's been out on Apple Arcade and you can get it right now as part of your Apple Arcadesubscription if you have that.
I could never imagineplaying a game like this on the phone.
So I tried it, and, yeah, don't play it on mobile.
It's an auto shooter there.
Just play it on Switchwhere you have buttons.
Just like “Enter theGungeon” it's a bullet hell dungeon crawler, except this time, it's 2D, which is way more my speed.
The Gungeon games are brutally hard and this is no exception.
It looks a lot moredaunting than it is, though.
When you roll or jump, you're permeable so you can pass right through the onslaught of bullets coming at you.
That's the right word, yes.
Yes? Your weapons also getswitched out pretty rapidly, adding another element to the chaos.
Part of the game is tryingto keep the good weapons.
Just like its predecessor, levels are procedurally generated and death is permanent.
So, you will play throughthe beginning part over and over and over again.
But the good news is, it'll be a differentexperience every time.
You have to know if this is your thing before you dive into it.
But if you like roguelike games or if it does sound like your thing, it's only $10 on the eShop, making it one of the best deals on this list, and it's currentlygot a 72 on Metacritic, which sounds a bit harsh, actually, yikes.
“Wonderling”, or Vunderling, is, you guessed it, another 2D side scroller.
In this one, you play a bad guy, or, a vidyagame boss, their words.
– [Narrator] You're agoon, of a vidyagame boss.
– You auto-walk through the levels to find and murder the maincharacter of a Mario-like game.
It's an interesting concept.
I first heard about it fromParker from Fanatix Four who first heard about it at PAX.
Right around the timeit had just come out.
So, you know what? I'll leave it him totell you what he told me.
(slide whistle descending)(glass smashing) – (he yawns) I was like, fiveminutes from going to bed and probably only 200 hundred tries or so from getting a stringfishon the last two days before it's gone, and I was not successful but Bob asked me totalk about “Wunderling”.
So I learned about this game at PAX, where I met Bob in personfor the first time.
They gave me this, which is cute and fun.
It's a cassette tape.
Just like the olden times, we're old now.
But it also had the gamecode and I played it and enjoyed it quite a lot.
So “Wunderling” is basically, you're this little goomba looking dude.
Everything's veggie themed in this game.
And you are given powersto be able to jump, so you can't do much rightat the beginning of the game.
It's an auto-runner.
Story-wise, it's surprisinglycomplicated in some ways, it's left a bit ambiguous likewho's good, who's not good? And that kind of thing, but mechanically, which isultimately most important, it's a 2D platformer akin toMario or “Celeste” or whatever but again, it's an auto-runner and you gain mechanics throughout the game in a pretty well paced waywhere you can actually use some of the mechanics thatyou learn later in the game and bring them back tolevels that you didn't beat or didn't get all the collectibles for or something like that.
And, speaking of collectibles, let me show you this.
Most of the collectibles areoutfits that you can get.
I look like a detective! I'm very, very cool.
And then there's alsoadditional challenge rooms, they do a good job of differentiating between the base challengeand the extra stuff.
Sort of like in “Celeste”with the strawberries where it's like, you don'treally need to get all the stuff but if you want to, there it is and those things are fairlychallenging, I found.
All in all, it's a fun time.
Everybody seems to beliking it pretty well that's played it, it's just kind of gone under the radar I'm pretty sure.
It's, I think, $15 on theeShop, so, worth a pick up.
It took me about 10 hours to100% complete the whole thing, so, for whatever that's worth.
And that's about it, I'm gonna go to bed now.
And just dream about stringfish.
– Okay, fine, I'll talk about “Roombo”.
You play a sentient Roomba, you know, like the vacuum cleaner, and your job is to findand murder intruders.
So you're like a securityRoomba in a really smart home.
And you hack your environment to violently kill burglars.
It's kind of like a stealth puzzle game.
After you successfullythwart their efforts you have to then clean up your mess before the owners come home.
It's an interestingconcept that, of course, provides for some ridiculous situations.
But the only reason itmade it onto this list is because it's just $3and 99 cents right now.
It's usually $5, which is also not bad, and it does not have a Metacritic score because I guess it's too new or unknown.
So, it's a good dealfor a fun little romp.
So that's about all I gotas far as recent indie games on the Switch right now.
It's been a while sinceI made a video like this.
But all of those videos still apply if you wanna see some more indie games that are worth checking out on the Switch.
Just because they've been out for a while doesn't mean they're not good any more, so I'll leave a playlistto all those videos if you wanna check out some more stuff.
Maybe something came outbetween that last video and now that I missed, or maybe I actually saw it and I just didn't thinkit looked very good.
Was there anything in this video that you played and likedor is there something that I actually did miss? Leave it in the commentsbelow, add me on Twitter, and any and all this othersocial media garbage.
Hey, did you know that Ihave a personal channel? It's called youtube.
There should be a blog over there that's about the coronavirusin New York City.
Hey, editing Bob, is thatdone yet, is that up now? It'll be up today, some time today, could you just give me a minute? It's been a lot.
So you can go over to youtube.
com/bobwulff and I'll link it at the end anyway so you can check it out.
I'll also mention that wehave Amazon affiliate links in the description below, but I can't link to all of these games so if you wanna try one of these games, why don't you buy aneShop card off of Amazon using our link to help support us and tell Nintendo, hey, they're the guys that told me about this game.
Anyway, we got new videos and live streams all the time, our schedule'susually in a pinned tweet over on our Twitter, we got Wulff Den Live every single Wednesday ateight p.
Eastern Time here on YouTube.
And we got Twitch streams all the time.
I've been meaning to ramp those down so I can do other things, but now I'm home all the time, so those have been ramped up.
But of course, the most important thing that you can do to helpsupport the channel is just subscribe.
I'd love you all for doing that.
And of course, sharethis video with a friend, a friend who needs some more stuff to play besides Animal Crossing right now.
Thank you guys very much, have yourselves a good week and also, check out Fanatix Fourthe YouTube channel, I'm giving you a lot of homework and I'm so sorry, but you know what? You got it covered, you've got it.
