Indie News (Oct. 21) – Pirate Pop Plus OST / Runner3 / Shovel Knight x First 4 Figures
Today’s Indie news: Pirate Pop Plus OST now available on Bandcamp, but also…
- Shovel Knight x First 4 Figures
- Twisted Fusion
- SteamWorld Heist
- Finger Gun Games
- Power Disc Slam
- Azure Striker Gunvolt
- Entertainment Hero
Today, Choice Provisions shared one, lone screenshots from Runner3. They also shared the following disclaimer:
I would like to point out that this is some of the first imagery that we are sharing. It’s a screenshot in-engine–this means that there are no post-rendering effects, you can see the engine widgets, and of course you can see the placeholder art in the background. In other words: Don’t consider what you see here to be final art in any way!
The reason they shared such a screenshot is because it showcases some of the things they have been talking in previous devblog posts: the path splitting up and down and a curving path going off down another route, and the moon. Oh, and what’s beyond that dune? We don’t know, but the developers sure are excited to share it, because it’s apparently “part of the game’s special dipping sauce”…

Shovel Knight x First 4 Figures
First 4 Figures have released high-quality statues based on many franchises and IPs, and it looks they are soon going to launch a collection for… Shovel Knight! Unfortunately, they haven’t announced anything else, though you can check out the contest below to try and win a statue!
Yesterday, Lewis Pugh posted the latest Kickstarter update for Twisted Fusion (on Wii U). This one contains some pretty good news: the release date, which is November 3rd for both Europe and North America. The reason it ended up so late is because there was no other way to have a simultaneous release otherwise.
Here’s the launch trailer for the game:

Here’s the Accolade Trailer for SteamWorld Heist on Wii U, now available in North America (via the Nintendo eShop, retail releases following on November 1st):
Pirate Pop Plus
Yesterday, Pirate Pop Plus was released on Wii U and New Nintendo 3DS in Europe and North America. Like the game? Like its sound track even more? If yes, here’s some good news: the game’s soundtrack is now available on Bandcamp! You can listen to it for free, but also buy it if you want to support 13AM. Click here for the Pirate Pop Plus soundtrack, and here for the other 13AM Games soundtracks!
Released earlier this month in Europe, the Nintendo 3DS version of PixelMaker is still coming to North Amrica. In fact, Mike Oliphant from NostaticSoft has announced earlier this week that the North American version has been sent to Nintendo for lotcheck. Hopefully, we will get a release date soon!
Our North American release of PixelMaker on #3DS has been approved by Nintendo – we should have a release date soon.

Finger Gun Games
Today, Finger Gun Games published a blog post to talk about the following:
- Ohayou! Beginner’s Japanese, which is now complete and has already been sent to Nintendo for lotcheck. Unsurprisingly, development didn’t take nearly as long as for Stone Shire. We should have a release date pretty soon, if everything goes well. In a month or two, the game may receive an update adding more vocabulary, provided it doesn’t take too long to implement (and it looks like it might be moved to the Nintendo Switch);
- Stone Shire: update 1.2 (the one fixing lag and other issues) is also ready, and was completed in just a week-end. To improve the frame rate, the water flowing process has been removed (as explained before), and lighting updating has been optimised. The update has been sent to Nintendo, and will be released as soon as it has passed lotcheck.

Power Disc Slam
Another update that’s ready is the one for Power Disc Slam (Ver. 1.10): it will be released on Thursday. In Europe, players will have to redownload the full game, since it got a new rating in Germany.
Great news! Power Disc Slam 1.10 update confirmed for release next Thursday!#3ds #indiedev #eShop pic.twitter.com/EGJzXmL4i6

Azure Striker Gunvolt
Let’s keep talking about updates, shall we? This one is already available, and it’s for Azure Striker Gunvolt. It brings the game to Ver. 1.3, and adds the Japanese voices and the updated script. Reminder: it’s only for the digital version of the first Azure Striker Gunvolt, and you don’t need it if you have the Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack.
