ShackStream: Indie-licious drops Eden for armor in Smelter

Eve may have been kicked out of Eden, but we're going to help her survive and find Adam in Smelter on today's episode of Indie-licious.


It’s no fun being kicked out of Eden because a serpent tricked you into eating a certain apple. You lose access to all the other non-forbidden fruit, it’s slightly colder, and there are all sorts of less-friendly beasts outside paradise that would give your booty a chomp given the chance. But as Eve, we’re not only going to make the best of it, but also see if we can’t track down Adam in Smelter on today’s Indie-licious.

Smelter comes to us from X PLUS Company under the publishing of DANGAN Entertainment. Currently available on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, it takes us back to the genesis when Adam and Eve eat the forbidden fruit that banishes them from Eden. Eve finds a suit of living armor and sets out to survive in the world beyond Eden in a stylish mix of action-platformer and overworld strategy. We’ll fight through levels, gather an empire, and try to find Adam by any means necessary.
