Welcome back to the NSG Indie Game Roundup, our monthly series featuring indie games news, plus game demo and new release discussions.

Our second installment of Indie Game Roundup was a whirlwind and so was the month of June! This month we’re discussing Steam Next Fest, which took place from June 10-17 and featured over 1800 game demos. Next Fest is one of our favorite events of the year and we covered a lot of ground, playing a total of over 50 demos between us. We’re excited to share our highlights and favorite demos from the event!

Also, huge thanks to our first Patreon supporters! In addition to other fun perks, members on Patreon get early access to all of the Indie Game Roundup episodes.

No Small Games is an indie game recap and review podcast brought to you by hosts Kate and Emily! They became friends while streaming on Twitch and bonded over their love of indie video games. In each episode of No Small Games, the two will discuss an indie game they both played independently. They’ll compare their experiences: the good, the bad, their most memorable moments of their playthroughs.

In this installment, you’ll hear their roundup of indie game news from June, 2024, plus new releases and demos that they played recently.
