The showcase, as described by Apple is as follows:

Often made up of just a few dedicated members, independent studios prove that what really matters is the size of your dream. In each Indie Game Showcase, we celebrate a popular game and its creative team, highlighting the developer’s titles along with their favorite games from other studios

The first showcase shows off Simogo, makers of Device 6, a narrative-driven puzzle adventure that was a runner up for 2013’s Game of the Year award. As for Simogo’s favorite games, the developer chose Space Invaders Infinity Gene, Critter Panic! and Gauge, among others.
