First 25 indie games for Xbox One unveiled at Game Developers Conference

Microsoft’s indie game developer program ID@Xbox on Tuesday unveiled 25 Xbox One games created by teams from all over the world.

Games like “It Draws a Red Box” and “FRU” take advantage of Xbox One features in new and exciting ways with local eight-player gameplay and Kinect integration. Existing fan favorites are also being brought to the platform, including “Strike Suit Zero” and “Divekick.”

Since ID@Xbox was announced last August, “we’ve been working closely with developers to bring a diverse array of independent games to Xbox One,” said Chris Charla, ID@Xbox Games director. “Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible so developers can focus on what matters most: creating the games you’re beginning to see today!”

The news was shared at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. More than 250 developers have now received development kits for Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program. To see all the indie games that are coming in this first wave, and to learn more about ID@Xbox, head over to Xbox Wire and to Major Nelson’s blog.
