IT’S A VIDEO PODCAST!! Watch in your podcast app, or on our YouTube channel.

It’s Nice Games’ Club take on the Let’s Play! Introducing “Nice Plays,” where the Nice Games Club gamedevs play nice games. Our first Nice Play features the recent indie (re-)release “OneShot.” We talk about the game’s unique design choices as we fumble around to figure out the controls.

But, like for every Nice Play, after 17 minutes of gameplay our egg timer goes off, which means it’s time to end the show.

This is a new format for us, and we don’t quite yet know what we’re doing, so let us know what you think by visiting our feedback form. Tell us what you think about Nice Plays, what you like about them and how you think we can do better.
