ISSUE #29

Hello and welcome to Indiepocalypse!

Indiepocalypse is a curated monthly collection looking to highlight the very best of the indie game scene. 

Each month features games by 10 different developers, including a newly commissioned game exclusive to the bundle-zine. The games cover a wide variety of styles, genres, and themes as they fight against any definition of "indie game" as a genre.

Also, and this part is very important to me and should truly be taken as given, each contributor is paid and developers are paid royalties on all future sales.

This Month's Games


Twilight Web (WIN) by Rainbow Cemetery


A brief exploration of anxiety and isolation.


Authorized Likeness (WIN) by Scroungin' 4 Catsup


Booting the game up greets you with a black screen. The only things you can see are the mouse cursor, the instructions in the top left corner... and your own reflection! Use the mouse to trace your reflection and then press 'enter' to reveal your drawing. How successful will you be at replicating what you saw in your monitor?



By the World's Wind (WIN/MAC) by Leonardo Price

Set sail across a small, open world. Visit island communities, explore lost caves, and meet the local wildlife with the four winds at your back. Use the map-making tools to plot a course or simply let the wind carry you where it will.

What's up in the Kharkiv bomb shelter (WIN/MAC/Linux) by Dahuanna


I started developing this game while sitting in a bomb shelter in Kharkov. Something was howling and thumping overhead all the time, and I did not want to work on it, but I needed to distract myself somehow, so I did it. I continue working on the game in Lviv, in between volunteer activities (I helped people evacuate from cities where hostilities were taking place). When I finished it, I realized that working in safety brings me joy, and it allowed me to take my mind off my nervousness for at least a few hours. I hope this game can bring some joy to someone too. 

Although the game was not planned to be fun. It was a fixation of the reality, when author can't control it with their works, so they can just be a witness. I was just a eyewitness, spectator of things that happen, and I was too ruined too, to create something new. So I just asked people that lived with me in a bomb shelter, and my friends, who lived in other bomb shelters, how are they - what they think and feel. This is what game is about.


Professor Quackerton in: The Locked Birdhouse (WIN/MAC) by WhatNames


In this storybook game, Professor Quackerton and her friends have to band together in the wake of a loss. Experience this colorful world of queer animals with big personalities and a big problem. This short and sweet story will fill you with warmth.
