An Unnoticed Uprising

The XBLIG marketplace is easily ignored. There are a lot of games so bad that they can make you feel like you wasted a dollar, and unless you are looking for Minecraft clones it can be hard to sort out the worthwhile games (they do exist). Thankfully, some developers got together to make it a little easier. Akin to XBLA Summer of Arcade, Indie Uprising III [url][url] (there were two others?) showcases some of the more promising games, and it happens to be going on right now.

I can sense the indifference in the air...

However, I do believe that many of these titles are worth checking out. The one I am most interested in is Gateways; a 2D performer mash up of Super Mario and Portal (go ahead, try to act like that doesn't sound awesome). Also worth checking out is Diehard Dungeon, a brutal dungeon crawl that hearkens back to Link to the Past. I have played both these demos and am eagerly awaiting my paycheck to give some indie-love to these titles. I write this because there seems to be no other mention of this event on Destructoid. While there is a lot of crap on XBLIG more worthy titles are coming to the service and now is a good time to stop ignoring them.
