The First Run of Indie Xbox One Games is Revealed.
When the Xbox One was announced, indie game developers were excited at the prospect of ID@Xbox. A program Microsoft initiated to help independent game developers publish their games through Xbox Live. We’re now seeing the first batch of the games to come through ID@Xbox.
On Tuesday, March 18, as GDC kicked off in San Francisco, independent developers shared 25 games coming to Xbox One through ID@Xbox. The initial sample included game creators from nine countries and featured brand new innovations as well as existing fan favorites.
