Microsoft Announces 25 ID@Xbox Games

Microsoft has officially announced it's first 25 games as part of their ID@Xbox program for indie developers and it has the likes of Guacamelee, Strike Suit Zero, and Dive Kick along with many others.

The program was started by Microsoft to be a more varied indie movement to the console. Since the launch of the Xbox One, Microsoft has had a difficult time building a base of independent games on the consoles besides Peggle 2 and Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare so having less big budget games costing big budgets to gamers is definitely something I look forward to. This list of games announced at today's GDC are:

  • 1001 Spikes
  • Calibre 10 Racing Series
  • CastleStorm
  • Chariot
  • Chuck’s Challenge 3D
  • Contrast
  • Divekick Addition Edition +
  • Forced
  • FRU
  • Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition
  • Gunscape
  • Habitat
  • Hyper Light Drifter
  • It Draws a Red Box
  • Nutjitsu
  • Pinball Arcade
  • Q.U.B.E. Director’s Cut
  • Riptide GP2
  • Roundabout
  • Sixty Second Shooter Prime
  • Spectra: 8bit Racing
  • Strike Suit Zero
  • Super Time Force
  • The Last Tinker
  • Wulverblade

Since Sony's E3 press conference, the PS4 has become the go-to system for those who like indie console games with many being ported directly from the PC. As more games are announced, we'll have them right here.
