Indiepocalypse Presents: インディー通信 Indie Tsushin

Cover - 美智

Hello and welcome to Indiepocalypse Presents: インディー通信 Indie Tsushin! Indiepocalypse is a curated monthly collection organized by Andrew, who looks to highlight the very best of the DIY indie game scene. With the Indiepocalypse Presents series, Andrew has been 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! More people making zines benefits everybody making zines. Please check out the full Indiepocalypse catalog if you have the chance, and get new issues by subscribing to the Indiepocalypse Patreon!

This issue was put together by Nice Gear Games and contains games by 10 different developers from Japan and covers a wide variety of styles, genres, and themes. It was originally released in 2022 February, and was the spark that led us to create the Indie Tsushin blog and zine. We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to work on this bonus issue of Indiepocalypse. We hope that you enjoy these games and the developer commentary in the zine!
