Hello and welcome to Indiepocalypse!
Indiepocalypse is a curated monthly collection looking to highlight the very best of the alternative 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

something that feels like waiting (WIN/MAC/Linux) by rinkaku
something that feels like waiting is a short kinetic novel that tells the story of a lonely and 'failed' game developer waiting for the sky to clear up.
This project comes from months of reflection about game development, working with other people, friendship, & art, and it is composed of photographs that my girlfriend and I took over the last few months and mixed & edited sounds.
watering a flower (WIN) by lily belmira
watering a flower is a game about a young teenager speaking to an adult version of themself in a dream. I wrote it when I was 18, seeing myself as the adult at the time. Now I'm 24 and all I see is two kids, protecting and comforting each other through a time in my life that wasn't over yet. Take from it what you want.
My Angel Can’t Be This Beautiful (WIN/MAC/Browser) by Zedie and Awiola
You were always plagued by nightmares and were undeniably horny, but now you’re considered a pure soul??? And by a hot angel?!😳 Mercilessly tease your guardian angel in this 5-10 min game.
One Last Time (Physical) by Marn S.
One Last Time is a GM-less tabletop game meant to emulate video game boss rushes. Playing solo or with 1-2 friends, you will take on the role of the protagonist(s) to fight through the rush, defeat the final boss, and learn a little about yourself along the way. You'll use dice and an oracle deck to determine and overcome the enemies in your path, and spend downtime phases between runs playing out flashbacks of who your characters were before this fight and what they've been through to get here.
One Last Time is a hack of Time To Drop, and is designed to be played while listening to both History Repeating albums by The Megas. It includes six optional challenge modes.
