This jam is now over. It ran from 2020-04-05 04:00:00 to 2020-04-25 03:59:59. View 53 entries

Hello! Welcome to the entry page for issue #4 Indiepocalypse Zine! 

What is this thing anyway? 

Simply, it's a monthly collection of  games from 10 developers all wrapped up in one package. That the developers get paid for! Up front and on the back end! There will also be a short digital zine with a page for each game. Creators are free to design their page to their own liking or submit text and pictures to be laid out for them.

The games are then sold through itch in a single (space provided) zipped file.

You will be paid (PayPal preferred)

UP FRONT: $20 USD 
BACK END: 5% of sales (before anthology breaks even) | 8% (after)
Also, I claim no exclusivity or ownership of your games!

Game Requirements

THEME!: None Really! Think of this as any extremely relaxed jam.

- Games can be made during the length of the 'jam' or any time prior - Games can be of any theme  - Games can be of any length - Games can be digital or physical (that can be distributed digitally) - Games can play very loosely with the term 'game' - Any number of games can be submitted but each person can only occupy one slot.

That's pretty much it. Everyone keeps ownership of all their stuff, this is mostly a way to give a platform (and money) to smaller and/or more unknown projects.

What if my game is selected (and how is it)?

After submission entries are curated, if your game is selected, you'll be contacted  and given a form to fill out to collect the materials for the magazine and anything else that may be needed. If you submitted multiple games, you will either: Be sent a message telling you which game was selected OR Receive no additional message and have your choice of bundling the games one entry/choose which game you'd like to be included.

WHEN WILL IT COME OUT?: 

(Ideally) May 8th
