“Our Nindie partners have been hard at work creating amazing content for Nintendo fans,” said Damon Baker of Nintendo of America’s Publisher and Developer Relations. “The #Nindies Summer Jam promotion not only makes it easy for fans to check out all the latest and greatest indie games on Nintendo eShop, but to also learn more about the developers that have worked so hard to create them.”

Virtual. Dream. Nightmare. It’s a thin line. It’s Axiom Verge. Available on Wii U.
