To finish off Day of the Devs, we got a musical and gameplay preview to Little Nemo which just went live on Kickstarter. The music is great!

I think that was a really good collection of Indie games, lots of things I’m now putting on my wishlist. What games are you interested in from the showcase? Let us know in the comments or on our social media.
