When the Xbox Live Indie Games Winter Uprising was announced, I got really excited. The Indie Games channel on the Xbox Marketplace is often maligned or, worse, ignored by people due to the misconception that everything on the service is crap. And while it’s true that a good 90% of the titles that go up are mediocre at best, there are some real gems available.
So, seeing this group of developers get together and try to change that perception brings warmth to my heart. The offerings are varied and the games look fantastic. I’m going to wind up spending a little money on a lot of games this week, I can tell you that much.
