Get the 2023 February zine on itch!

This digital issue is available to read in browser, or downloaded as PDF, ePub, and MOBI files. Daikon and I worked very hard on putting this together, and we hope you enjoy the issue!

I have to confess that this month was quite tough for me health-wise. I do apologize for the slightly thinner issue this time around and for the long drought during the first half of February! I am so grateful to Daikon for stepping up and writing quite a few of the articles this month. I am working on getting my health back, so I hope that the updates are a bit more stable in March!

More announcements

Announcing the 2023 Winter Collection!

Title card for the インディー通信 Indie Tsushin 2023 Winter Collection

A collection of the 2022-2023 Winter issues of インディー通信 Indie Tsushin!

I've bundled together the 2022 December, 2023 January, and 2023 February issues into one collection of zines that you can buy on itch for a minimum of $10! I'm trying to raise some funds to commission writers to contribute to the zine in future. This is still very much in the planning stages, but it is something I really hope to bring to fruition sometime this year! If you want to see Indie Tsushin grow, please consider getting the 2023 Winter Collection, or sharing it with people that you think would be interested in reading about Japanese indie games!

March events

Spring means lots of cool stuff to look forward to, like the Tokyo Indie Games Summit on March 4th! Daikon and I will be walking around and playing a bunch of games there. Follow us on Mastodon to see our live-toots about it!
