Chattycast 75: Indie Jones

The Chattycast welcomes Shark Punch CEO Jiri Kupiainen to talk about indie game discovery as well as his company's Playfield platform. 


We are awash with video games. Steam alone adds an average 55 new games per week, many of them smaller indie titles. No one could possibly be expected to keep up with such a glut of games, so what is there to do? How does one find the games that would interest them, or even simply the ones that are good in general? 

This week, the Chattycast talks about game discovery. We'll be welcoming on Jiri Kupiainen, CEO of the Finnish developer Shark Punch, which has developed the Playfield platform to resolve that very problem. How do you personally discover new indie games? What can storefronts do to make the process easier for players?

        I haven't for a while now, no. However, we are working on a video series that we want to become a regular thing, with old Hearthstone hands Ozzie and I talking with newcomer Andrew about strategy, deck types, the current state of the meta, etc.
