Promotes small developers and their favorite apps
Apple has launched a new section at the App Store, the Indie Game Showcase. As the name implies, the section concentrates on a specific title -- currently Simogo's Device 6, which was a runner-up for Apple's 2013 Game of the Year award. It also highlights other games by the same developer though, and titles that the development team enjoys.
While Apple will often launch brief highlight sections on the App Store, the company says it plans to make the Indie Game Showcase a regular feature. The section could potentially be a boon to small developers that lack the promotional budgets big publishers offer.
