Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, John & Kevin have a handful of awesome indies to highlight, alongside an updated all-time classic that slaps just as hard today as it did way back in 1999...so let's get right into it!

First things first, John kicks things off with Murder by Numbers, which was his 'resolution game' from last year's holiday episode.  John loves him a good Nonogram, but does this game add enough to the tried and true formula?

After that, Kevin takes some time to shoutout a few incredibly expressive platformers that we've been checking out alongside our friends in the Indie Game Collective.

Finally, we wrap things up by heaping more praise onto the fantastic THPS 1+2 HD remake, which John has been spending countless hours with on the Nintendo Switch!

Save it for the ‘cast! — Issue #7

October 18, 2021

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels, and welcome back to another edition of 'Save it for the 'cast!'

This week, we're looking into the future with a conversation from the pre-roll of an upcoming core episode of the podcast—and we're ALL over the map!?!

But before that, Kevin gives a quick shout out to a couple of awesome games from Wired Dreams Studio.

And in the interest of synchronicity, we briefly mention our indie game book club, 'PP Potpourri'—as this is both the 7th week of the club, and also the 7th edition of SIFTC!

112: There‘s a Reason Books Have Covers

October 11, 2021

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  We've got a whole bunch of video game goodness to gab about this week—and we're even semi-timely for a change, haha—so let's get right into it...

We kick things off with Goodboy Galaxy, a *brand new* metroidvania coming to the Game Boy Advance, cartridge and all!  We hang around on the classic Nintendo handheld for a little while longer, as Randall recently polished off Metroid Fusion, now he's finding more & more time to play games again, post-graduation!! :D

From there, Kevin & John get to take yet another stab at virtual reality, this time finally getting to see what Half-Life: Alyx is all about over at our buddy Mikee's place...

Finally, John closes things out with a duo of photography games, first sharing some more thoughts on New Pokémon Snap after it has received a free update or two, followed by a glowing endorsement for Umurangi Generationa 'current-apocalyptic' first-person adventure off the beaten path!

Episode Number Interview Edition — w/ Matt Glanville

Episode Number Interview Edition — w/ Matt Glanville

October 4, 2021

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, we are once again joined by the one-and-only Matt Glanville!  We've raved about pretty much all of Matt's games on the podcast in the past, and it is truly an honor to have him on the show again, this time for a more in-depth discussion about his own work!

We chat about everything from the quick & punchy arcade action of Matt's first three indie games, to his upcoming turn-based tactical sports game, Dungeon Deathball...

And we certainly don't stop there!  Half-Life 2, virtual reality, marketing your own games, financial uncertainty, and so on...
