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.

Luxury $imulator (WIN/Linux/Browser) by Rebecca Merrill
Luxury $imulator is a first person game-essay set in the last bastion of human civilisation, a labyrinthine bunker-palace after time. The viewer as opposed to the traditional narratives of video games, is not a hero - but an individual passing through, another guest in the final elite home of human civilisation. The memory of the fortress's building echoes throughout it's chambers, a lone voice from an era now lost.
