Microsoft Game Studios is on the hunt for talent. They're wanting people to make Xbox Live Arcade and Windows Phone 7 games. They say that they're "aggressively" looking for both established and new developers to make games. They're putting the word out now. In fact, they're asking any interested dev to email mobilegames@microsoft.com or arcade@microsoft.com to get an introduction to Microsoft Business Development.

Senior Business Development Manager Cherie Lutz: "We’re also very impressed and excited by the games and concepts coming from independent developers. The fact that we’ve been able to bring indie games to a broader audience via Xbox LIVE and Windows Phone 7 is a big ‘win’ for Microsoft, and it’s something we want to do more of."

They've already pulled in some nice indie games, but they want more. And I'm sure we all want more things like Limbo or Super Meat Boy. If you've got what it takes, get with MGS to make it clap.
