Reluctantly Indie

By Callum

Indie games are charming, right? Well, not everyone seems to think so. In this podcast, Callum Marshall, the indie game enthusiast, and James Gibson, a man who loathes indie games deep dive into an independent title every week. They'll inevitably argue over the finer details of each title, James will cynically rate the games that you hold most dear, and they'll talk a lot of nonsense in between. This is Reluctantly Indie, an Indie Game Culture Podcast.

A lot of people of worried about death, but if you have played Spiritfarer, you know that it's a pretty chill experience, unless you are James, of course. In this episode we chat about Thunder Lotus' breakout indie, discuss mortality, the emotive aspects of this game, and James predictably tells various spirits to GTFO.  Be sure to check out the rest of our content over on www.indiegameculture.com or message us @Reluctant_Indie on Twitter

Episode 001: Celeste - A Mountain to Climb
We kick things off on Reluctantly Indie with 2018's breakout precision platformer, Celeste. We debate whether this game was quite as touching and profound as it seems, and we discuss if this game is difficult but rewarding, or just plain frustrating. Plus, we inexplicably talk about Bill and Ben the flowerpot men, The Kardashians, and much more. Will this game be deemed Radiline, or Badiline? Listen and find out!  If you loved this podcast, be sure to head over to www.indiegameculture.com for more indie gaming content from Callum, James, and the rest of the team.  Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter @Reluctant_Indie
