    In a recent change to the iOS App Store, Apple debuted the new “Indie Game Showcase,” which is a special section set to regularly highlight one independent developer and their favorite titles. The debut of Apple’s Indie Game Showcase, which currently appears on the iTunes App Store’s homepage, happens to coincide with the end of this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Apple provided the following description of the showcase:

    Often made up of just a few dedicated members, independent studios prove that what really matters is the size of your dream. In each Indie Game Showcase, we celebrate a popular game and its creative team, highlighting the developer's titles along with their favorite games from other studios
    The first showcase features Simogo, makers of the hit game Device 6, which is a narrative-driven puzzle adventure that was a runner-up for 2013’s Game of the Year award. The studio is also responsible for the eerie title, Year Walk, which won critical acclaim for its strong storyline and visual style. The developer chose Space Invaders Infinity Gene, Critter Panic! and Gauge, among a few others for its favorite games

    As of right now, it remains unknown how often Apple plans to rotate the showcase, though other curated App Store sections tend to be on one-week cycles.
