Apple launches the Indie Game Showcase

indie game showcase

Today Apple has launched a new section on the App Store dedicated to showcasing indie games. With this showcase however, we don’t have just another list.

Apple has chosen and will choose a developer (probably each week). It will showcase the dev’s latest hit game and also other games by that developer.

The last list is for us the most interesting one as it highlights that dev’s favourite games from other studios.

Simogo games

Another thing that we like is that ¬†most of the indie games in this week’s showcase are paid games and higher than the $0.99 standard.

Apple decided to debut this showcase alongside Simogo with their latest game: Device 6. So head on to the App Store and see what this dev has recommended.

Good move Apple, but we want to see more.
