Other announcements

(Not-Quite) May Events

Sneaking in at the tail end of April is Konami Indie Games Connect on the 30th, this Sunday! Daikon and I will be walking around and playing a bunch of games. Follow us on Mastodon to see our live-toots about it!

Summer vacation

Just a heads up that we are planning to combine our June and July issues and release it on June 30, with the next release in August. This is so that we can have a bit of a summer break! We may still update the blog during July, but if we do, those articles will go in the August issue, and we will be skipping the July release.

And now, a word from our sponsors

Just kidding! インディー通信 Indie Tsushin is ad-free, does not (and will never!) run sponsored content, and is mostly made by two people in their spare time. We write the articles, buy the games out of pocket, conduct and translate the interviews, lay out and edit the website and zines, pay for hosting and recording equipment, and so on. We do all this because we are gigantic nerds and hope that more people can play and appreciate Japanese indie games and their developers. We would gladly do it even if we never made a single yen from this.

BUT! If you enjoyed the zine, please consider paying for it! Any amount would be more than enough, and would go a long way towards boosting our morale and keeping us going. Not only that, it lets us pay guest writers (like this month's article by Squimmy!) to appear in the zine! If you can't afford to donate, don't even worry about it! Indie Tsushin will always be available to read for free and will never go behind a paywall. You can also help us a ton by sharing our zines or articles, and by rating and reviewing our games and zines on itch. Thank you so much for all of your kind support!

That's all for now, but be sure to check back in soon for more articles! Hope you have a great Golden Week and enjoy playing lots of good indie games!
