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
Underliner (WIN/MAC/Linux) by Jungwoo Yom
The unusual combination of lollipops and bullets invites you to a world full of puzzles and surprises. In puzzles, each rule combines with other rules, challenging players to think in clever and novel ways.
In Underliner, the bullet changes its direction constantly, bouncing between colorful lollipops. Wide variety of lollipops and other objects will influence the bullet’s trajectory in unexpected ways.
12 Labors (WIN/MAC) by Brendan McLeod & Garrett Steele
A short narrative game about getting over your mistakes, generational trauma, and the recuperative power of yardwork.
Evelyn's Farm (WIN/MAC) by James Senter
To save money for college, you and your friends Ivan and Lucy have agreed to help an old lady, Evelyn, with the harvest. What could possibly go wrong? As you pick pumpkins and apples, you notice a barn full of incomprehensible machines and a forest full of unfriendly creatures. Clearly, there's more to Evelyn than meets the eye...
Features: *NOT a cozy farming sim. *A nonlinear story with many possible endings.
*Idle gameplay: manage resources and make progress even while you're away.
*Gradually explore a vast, unexpected world. *Partly inspired by a recent show set in Indiana...
Phantom's Revenge (WIN) by Ben Saint
Take on the role of Phantom Horn, a katana-wielding slime-infused socialist pony gangster with a bone to pick. Battle your way through mad science pony and war criminal Night Star's secret lab using the power of SLIME! (The many uses of which are so obvious I won't insult your intelligence by enumerating them here.)
Play fetch with your radioactive pet horse, trade stocks and crypto on your gellphone, marry your sword, and dab on the corpses of more than 50 unique enemies as you carve a bloody path toward vengeance. You'll need to manage your resources carefully to survive the gauntlet. A single slip up could cost Phantom his life, or worse. How much are you willing to sacrifice for the sake of... REVENGE?
GUACUCO (WIN/MAC) by Sol Martínez Solé / avyary / Jeremy Diamond
GUACUCO is an experimental interactive diorama about confronting traumatic memories and letting them go. You're stuck in your nightmares, and the only way out is to face your pain, gather all your memories, and return them to the flow of time.

In the Shade of Lilies (WIN) by Team Insania (MadnessWay Games, John Krzywicki, lewis mcdonald, Winter Iris)
From the moment we are born, we are instilled with certain ideas regarding the limits of realism and fantasy. But what is the exact difference between this? Is there even one? And more importantly, do you still think you can tell the real from the unreal?
