Streams and Additional Videos

UPDATE: I have decided to swap the schedule for Wednesday and Thursday. This means that there will be a stream on Wednesday and a full article on Thursday.

I’ve been making additional videos for many of the games covered on Indie Overlook for a long time, but I’ve kept them on YouTube without adding them to this site. That’s soon going to change as over the next few days I will be adding these to a new section of the site dedicated to videos. I have also been streaming games on Twitch since long before the launch of Indie Overlook, but I am now going to be streaming in a more official sense for the site and have already done so this past weekend, streaming Sand and Rust and Hollow Knight on Saturday and Sunday respectively. Stream recordings will also be available on Indie Overlook alongside the other videos, but videos which are not explicitly stream recordings will still not have commentary as I think it can be important to have videos out there where the games are better able to ‘speak for themselves’ without the atmosphere being broken by commentary.

I’m still experimenting with the exact schedule for the streams (and my decision to stream on both Saturday and Sunday this time around means the full article for Sand and Rust is going to be delayed until Monday afternoon), so the exact time and days of the week during which these streams will occur is definitely not set in stone at the moment, but I do plan to have three streams per week. Most of these streams will likely be for the specific game which is being covered, though they will also include streams of previously covered games and ones which I plan to cover in the future (ex: Hollow Knight). Currently, this is how the schedule looks:

Monday: Stream
Tuesday: Video + Basic Article
Wednesday: Full Article
Thursday: Stream
Friday: Video + Basic Article
Saturday: Stream
Sunday: Full Article

This schedule would result in new content being released every day of the week for Indie Overlook (streams will be occurring in the evening and may be broken up into multiple videos, so you’ll need to go to Twitch to see the full stream on the day for which it is scheduled). There’s a good chance that Wednesday and Thursday activities will be swapped to match the schedule for Friday through Sunday, but this is the plan for now and I’ll make another update if it changes. And yes, this also means that both the full article for Sand and Rust and a stream will be coming up on Monday!
