Apple adds "Indie Game Showcase" to the App Store
Apple has added an Indie Game Showcase to the Apple App Store. The section will feature apps made by independent developers along with these code jockeys' favorite games from competing studios. This week, Apple put the spotlight on indie developer Simogo and its popular Device 6 game which was a runner-up for iTunes Game of the Year award last year.

Flappy Bird took independent games to new heights with a simple, but addictive game that was said to be bringing in $50,000 in ad revenue daily. The game was taken down by developer Dong Nguyen because of its addictive nature. On Wednesday, Nguyen said that the game will return at some point in the future, with warnings when players should take a break. Other independent games that were a hit with a large number of App Store users were Fruit Ninja and Doodle Jump.
