Apple puts the spotlight on indie games

Posted by Jessica Famularo on March 10th, 2017

The App Store started highlighting indie games this week in an effort to shine the spotlight on the excellent work done by smaller studios in mobile gaming. The store's main splash banner features a number of indie games, including Mushroom 11, which just launched this week. A number of sub-categories like "Indie games celebrate innovation . . ." give shoppers a more focused selection of indie games to choose from, too.

It'll be exciting to see what Apple may have in store, as indie games are doing some of the most innovative things in mobile games at the moment. For now, though, let's take a look at three neat mobile indie games launching next week.
