Indiepocalypse Presents: インディー通信 Indie Tsushin

Cover - 美智
Edited by Nice Gear Games


Hello and welcome to Indiepocalypse!

Indiepocalypse is a curated monthly collection looking to highlight the very best of the DIY indie game scene. 

Each month will feature 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.

With the (hopeful) Indiepocalypse Presents series I will be funding and helping different people create indie game bundle-zines more specific to their communities. Indie game zines are something anybody can do, everybody should do! I believe more people making zines benefits everybody making zines.

Indiepocalypseのボーナス号、インディー通信初回号です! 日本の開発者を紹介します! ぜひ楽しんでください!

With this bonus issue of Indiepocalypse, Indie Tsushin, we wanted to highlight some great creators from the Japanese indie game scene! Please enjoy their games!
