Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+
– The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a dungeon-crawling shoot-’em-up that’s a different game each and every time you play it. The randomly generated maps are built with more than 11,000 unique room configurations, each populated with a nearly endless variety of enemies, items, challenges and secrets.

Human Resource Machine - Human Resource Machine is a puzzle game for nerds. In each level, your boss gives you a job. Automate it by programming your little office worker. If you succeed, you'll be promoted up to the next level for another year of work in the vast office building.

Little Inferno - Multiple nominee in the Independent Games Festival for the Grand Prize, Nuovo Award, and Technical Excellence, with honorable mentions in Best Design and Best Audio. Little Inferno is an adventure game that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace – about looking up up up out of the chimney, and the cold world just on the other side of the wall.

World of Goo - World of Goo is a physics-based puzzle/construction game. The millions of Goo Balls who live in the beautiful World of Goo don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.

Virtual Console on Wii U

Picross 3D
– Track the numbers to uncover the hidden shape in this beloved Nintendo DS classic. Tap a chisel to eliminate blocks you think don’t belong or use a paintbrush to mark ones you think should stay. Beginners and Picross series veterans alike will love this puzzle game that’s easy to pick up, but hard to put down.

Why not sign up for a (free) account?
Man, World of Goo / Little Inferno / Human Resource Machine is such an awesome set of games from one of the best indie devs out there. If you haven't played any of them I highly recommend all three (with various small caveats.)

@sirmastersephiroth Hmm.

World of Goo is a colorful physics based puzzle game with an awesome soundtrack. Actually, few caveats here. It's pretty awesome on every level. One of my favorite indie games. The only small complaint I have is that the way you do the special challenges for each stage isn't as intuitive / clean as it could be.

Little Inferno is... very unique. You basically just sit in front of a fireplace the whole game burning stuff, getting things by mail, burning more stuff. SOME people might find it boring even. But I found the story and themes and such rather interesting and loved it.

Human Resource Machine is a game about programming, but like... it's more of a puzzle game where you have to solve algorithms with a much more limited command set than you would have if you were doing real programming. It might be a bit too hardcore for some people, especially those who have no interest in programming, but as a programmer I loved it and probably non-programmers could find it interesting as well.

Really all 3 of these are some of my all-time favorite indie games. I love 2D Boy / Tomorrow Corporation.

The King of Fighters '94 is a classic. Will download.

I wonder if we will get other SNK fighters...namely Samurai Shodown.

I bought World of Goo and Little Inferno...it's funny, I forgot how good Little Inferno was. I'm already an hour in (again) and loving it (again).

Kyle Gabler is a genius, what a phenomenal set of games. Throwing Binding of Isaac in there too is just icing on the cake.

Isaac should be in the post, I guess. And I'll definitely pick up that 3-pack at some point.

If it makes you feel any better, this is the third time I've bought it.
I don't have the DLC on Steam (or on the 3DS obviously) so I'm pretty hyped.

One of my favourite things with Isaac is when new DLC is released and you have ZERO idea of what items do and what the enemy and boss patterns are.

Some game called Swap Fire is currently free on Wii U (US eShop), also gives 20 gold coins on My Nintendo.
