ID@Xbox Program Reveals Studios Working On Xbox One Games


Today on Xbox Wire, Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox, announced 32 studios that have already signed up for the program.

The purpose of ID@Xbox is to make it easy for independent developers to make the games that they want and publish them directly to the Xbox Marketplace. The process seems easy enough and based on the caliber of talent that have signed up, it seems like it's heading towards success. Seriously, look at this list pulled from Kotaku:

  • iNis — Gitaroo Man, Lips, Demons' Score

  • Vlambeer — Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing
  • Double Eleven — LittleBigPlanet Vita

Looking Good Microsoft!

Drinkbox Studios, makers of one of my personal favorites, Guacamelee, state that their experience with ID@Xbox has been "great so far," and hopefully it stays that way. Granted, this is a list of studios who have signed up so far so there is no way of knowing who is actually making games for Xbox One.
