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

Our hero, Tortuga, wakes up falling from a cliff! Not the best way to start the day, but things are about to get much, much worse! The peaceful island of Montaña Clara and the inhabitants of Lost Town are in danger, and somehow you are the only one able to do something about it.

Why does the sea cry so much? (WIN/Linux/Browser) by Wizard of Ox
Why does the sea cry so much is a kinetic novel about a girl named Rosa, who finds a mysterious woman crying in the sea. After approaching her to see if she’s alright, she discovers she is a spirit that comes back to the beach from time to time. The spirit offers to tell her an old tale, the tale of Why does the sea cry so much?
This story was actually inspired by an old Brazilian fairy tale called "Porque o mar tanto chora" that translates to "Why does the sea cry so much?". This is story is my own twist on this old tale.
Menage a Trois (WIN/MAC/Linux/Android) by Arbit
Sol Fitzroy is starting college. She has zero enthusiasm and even less hopes and dreams. But with soccer sweetheart Chet Chester and football star Bill Lowman, maybe she'll have a good time in the end?
