What do YOU want to see out of Indie-licious?

I usually shoot from the hip with this stuff. Are there any indies you want to see on the show? Can Indie-licious be better? Let me know!

It's coming up on one year since I launched the Indie-licious livestream with the blessing of the management here at Shacknews. Indie games have always been my passion... an area of the industry that doesn't get nearly as much love as it deserves full of treasures we might otherwise miss throughout our year of gaming. 12 months ago on March 30, 2020, I started this thing to shine line on new indie gems every week. Coming into the livestream's one-year anniversary, I wanted to hear the community's opinion on the show.

What do you want to see out of Indie-licious? Have you watched it? If not, what's keeping you away from it? Is it the timing or the spread of games I choose? Is there a way I could make Indie-licious more appealing to you? I recently started loading the VODs into the video articles when the stream is over so you could watch even if you missed it. Is that noticeable or helpful? Is the raw gameplay experience of Indie-licious enjoyable or would you like to something a bit more prepared? Have you seen it when we invite developers on the show? Do you want to see more of that?

These are the kind of questions I ask as I try to strengthen this show. There's a lot I'd like to do and a lot in the works. I'm hoping to boost the overall presentation with some overlays we have in the works, as well as figure out some new ways to signal-boost what I'm doing. Ultimately, more than anything I just want this to continue to be a thing I can continue to pour my heart and soul into for another year, and then another year, and so on. I feel blessed to be in a position where I have good tabs on this stuff and share it with a hopefully growing audience. I want to be peoples' go-to resource when they ask,"I wonder what's new in the indie gaming scene right now?"

With all of that in mind, I would love to hear from viewers or would-be viewers what would stand to make this show matter more to you. If nothing, that's fair. I know Indie-licious isn't for everyone. But I'm still going to strive to make it as widely appealing as possible. If you feel I'm on the right track, I appreciate it. If not, I would love to know what I can do better.

And again, thank you all for watching and continuing to watch whenever you can. The Indie-licious livestream couldn't continue to exist if nobody cared, and I appreciate everyone who stops by. With your help, I want to continue to boost the indie gaming scene for as long as I'm allowed to do so. There will always be more indie games to share and I have my eyes on some fantastic titles for upcoming weeks already.

Stay tuned, and let me know what you think! In the meantime, as always... have fun. Be cool. Play more indies, y'all.

      watching currently -- I think it could be better with additional hosts on the stream asking questions/carrying on the discussion with the devs. It's usually pretty difficult for someone to play a game well in addition to asking questions and having a back and forth with the dev (and the twitch chat). Maybe 1 person playing, 1 person interviewing and reading out the chat questions/comments?

        That was a very tough game to carry on conversation and play at the same time with all of the bullet hell aesthetic to it. I have had co-hosts lend me a hand with streams in the past when I thought a game would be difficult to concentrate on and talk with someone about. I'll definitely keep co-hosts on my radar when a game looks tough!

          Sounds good!! I enjoy watching when I remember to tune in or see the thread pop up here, but usually I just forget that this is happening. The best ones are when you have someone from the dev team on to talk to in my opinion. And it's always nice when there are keys to be had :)
