IGM Sunday NewsCast April 27, 2014 – Hamster’s, Universe Sims and Parkour!

IGM Presents… The Sunday NewsCast! In this weekly webseries we recap the top stories in the last week in regards to the indie gaming community. After that we kick back, enjoy some good company, and check out some of our favorite upcoming Kickstarters, and new games in development!

Hosted by Vinny Parisi, Bonnie Burgette and Nick Cescon, this week’s newscast was an absolute blast filled with a lot of good jokes, conversation and awesome games! We looked at some upcoming Kickstarter giants, assuming they’re going to make their funding goals, as well as some surprisingly successful looking games! Come and check out which one met its funding goal in a mere 2 days, which game decided to cancel its Kickstarter and instead went directly into production, which game’s target tops the $350,000 mark and which game made one of our hosts positively weak in the knees! Can’t wait to see you all next week!
