A downloadable Bundle-zine for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
Cover - Ana Critchfield
Hello and welcome to Indiepocalypse!
In its simplest terms, Indiepocalypse is just a bundle of games (common thing) packaged with a zine (also common thing) about the aforementioned games and comics, reviews and more!
Each month will feature games by 10 different developers. Each issue I hope to bring together games that explore the breadth of what our art form has to offer.
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
Saccharine Playground (WIN) by Adrien Dittrick, June Flower
Warning: this game contains mature subjects and coarse language, and is therefore not recommended for children.
You were tasked by THE CLAW to gather illegal items across the lands (they have a white outline, don't miss them!). Report all your friends to the godly authority until everyone is nice again!
EMBRACE (WIN/MAC/Linux) by Rémy Devaux
Embrace is a very short experimental game about embracing things that happen in life.
My goal was to make something meaningful because that's the direction I want my work to take in the future. The result is very experimental, super short and quite imperfect. But I do like it, and I hope you do too! :)
Flux (WIN/MAC) by Mars Ashton
FLUX presents a variety of limited-difficulty experiences: Interactive fiction with a series of mini-games that challenge you to type, hack-n-slash, organize or fidget to earn credits and purchase numerous cosmetic items: hairstyles, helmets, outfits and upgrades! Designed to allow players to alternate between chill and twitch-based game modes, the game provides players with a number of activities to engage with that offer zero consequences. Flux and chill!
Therapy for Orchestra Movement III (WIN) by lucasograssi
Instruments do have a soul, and we should nourish that
let your egg people grow into large trees (WIN/MAC) by willow
click to interact
interactions are cyclical
destruction leads to growth
learn to balance
two of swords (WIN/MAC) by willow
uh yeah I wrote this as a kinda semi-autobiographical thing. it's a little dark but hopefully not too overdramatic?
it's a short visual novel about an autistic trans girl trying to understand the meaning of life lol
it's like part choose-your-own tarot adventure, part personally quiz, and part turn based battle.
CONURBATION (WIN) by Caique Assis
CONURBATION is a game about restoring nature to a sprawling urban environment.
The List (WIN/WINE) by Nikki Bee
The List is a light-hearted adventure game with simple platforming, a few minigames, and a focus on dialogue. It should take 2-3 hours to finish. Due to the length, and amount of reading, I recommend playing it over multiple sessions.
I Have Low Stats But My Class Is"Leader", So I Recruited Everyone I Know To Fight The Dark Lord (WIN/MAC) by Damien Crawford
In 'I Have Low Stats But My Class Is "Leader", So I Recruited Everyone I Know To Fight The Dark Lord', or 'IHLSBMCILSIREIKTFTDL' for short, you primarily play as the main character Josephine, fated to defeat the Dark Lord. However, as she's generally unskilled in combat, she recruits literally everyone in her hometown to fight enemies with a party of 99 characters!
Match me if you can (WIN/MAC/Android)
by Florence Noé, Karine Houbrix, Mathilde Herard, Tristan Itier, Edward, Pierre Corbinais
Wodunnit meets Dating Sim.
A crime has been committed.
The killer is hidden in a pub where a speed-dating event is taking place.
Infiltrate the event undercover, casually question the suspects, connect the dots, and arrest the murderer… Unless love turns up to mess with your plans…
TV Night (WIN/MAC/Linux) by Cynthia González Martínez, David Rodríguez Madriñán, Perfecto Antonio Carballo Oliveira, Lara Calo Alonso
Your parents hate it when you stay up late watching cartoons... but that's not gonna stop you. Other things might tho.
