Apple highlight Indie Gamers in their App Store for the first time

Apple highlight Indie Gamers in their App Store for the first time

It’s one of the hardest game of all for indie developers; getting noticed within the sea of apps available on Apple’s App Store.

Going up against multi- billion dollar companies that have the budget to be seen, may seem like an impossible task but this week Apple have given the indies some love with their new feature.

Apple have started highlighting indie gamer’s content in a dedicated section within the store.  “Celebrating Indie Games” is a hub that showcases new releases from independent game developers selected by the App Store’s Editorial team.

The selections were chosen by the App Store’s Editorial team, and include a mix of both paid and free-to-play titles. These offerings are organised into appealing categories including “incredible sound design” or “unforgettable stories.”

According to a recent App Store tweet the indie gamers hub will be a permanent feature, making a positive impact on the discoverability of new developer’s work.
