In this week’s episode of The Game Informer Show, Suriel Vazquez makes his triumphant return, and we celebrate our latest issue, The Indie Issue featuring Sea of Stars. Kyle played eight hours of Sea of Stars and spoke with the developers so he shares that experience, the crew tries to figure out what it means to be an indie game in 2023, and then we run down some of our personal favorite indie games of all time before answering a few community questions.
