Ultra Healthy Video Game Nerd Making His First Ever Indie Game

Ultra Health Video Game Nerd is developing his first title for Steam, a 90s style platformer.

Indie developers are probably the most important part of our gaming industry. We only get so many games in a year from AAA developers so these indie devs are the ones who quench our thirst for new titles. So, it’s important to support all these developers working hard for us players.

New games from indie developers come out all year round and in bulk, especially on Steam. These indie games are developed by all kinds of different people. A new indie title like that is coming out very soon from a talented YouTuber and developer.

Ultra Health Video Game Nerd is a very underrated YouTuber on the gaming side of the platform. He is most popular for his HONG KONG 97 videos which is an infamously bad game. Now he is making an indie game and releasing it on Steam and the project looks great.

The YouTuber is developing a platform game for Steam with the name “Violet Wisteria”. Ultra Health Video Game Nerd said in his recent video said that the game’s Steam Page has gone public now. You can see it on the platform and the description for the game certainly has us excited.

Violet Wisteria will be a platformer based on the 1990’s gaming style. You play as Wisteria Asagiri, a woman with purple hair, to save the Earth alongside the higher and under-realm. You have to master the 3 color attack system to defeat enemies and slash through 8 stages of the indie game. 

Players will travel to multiple dimensions and work to thwart the plan of the wizard Maskandes. It is inspired by other heroine lead platform games Valis and lassis like Ikaruga and Silhouette Mirage. The gameplay trailer of Violet Wisteria is also present on the Steam page and the platformer looks really promising. 

It took Ultra Healthy Video Game Nerd nearly 1.5 years to develop the game. He tells us a lot about the development in his new video like how he worked hard to put Japanese and English in the indie game. Violet Wisteria will also have several modes like the boss rush and gallery mode to see the cutscene artwork. 

We learn about how thorough indie game development is from his video. He explains how it took almost a month to add small things like a title screen, power up graphics, and debugging. A demo for Violet Wisteria will also release soon according to the YouTuber. Violet Wisteria has a release date of 2023 right now so the YouTuber still has time to polish it.
