The App Store has been running a pretty spectacular promotion of indie games over the past few days, featuring a selection of indie games quite prominently on the storefront while releasing a brand new indie game each day. The promotion is running until Monday, but Apple's come out to say that they'll continue to feature indie games in their own section moving forward.

As the week winds down, let's take a look at all of the lovely games that launched in the promotion thus far. There's a good mix of fast-paced arcade hits, RPGs, roguelikes, puzzlers, and more.

Golf Zero gets its first trailer; could launch end of February

Posted by Jessica Famularo on January 31st, 2017

Designers Colin Lane and Brad Erkkila have been teasing twitter with a series of .gifs featuring their up-coming game, Golf Zero. The game draws clear inspiration from Super Meat Boy, in that it's a challenging platformer in which your little sprite has to dodge sawblades and spikes before eventually succumbing to a violent end. But this time, there's a golfing twist. Using some bullet time mechanics, you attempt to putt a golfball into a hole before your violent death. The game is looking pretty spectacular, especially now that we've got an even closer glimpse.
