The lights are on
During GDC, Microsoft announced a bevy of indie games that will be heading to Xbox One for the first time as part of Microsoft's ID@Microsoft independent developer games program. Some are games that have already been released on other platforms, but many are brand new. Over the past couple days we have covered some of these games, namely FRU, Habitat, Wulverblade, Hyper Light Drifter, It Draws a Red Box, and Caibre 10 Racing. Here are screenshots for 16 other indie games that Microsoft has said are coming to Xbox One.
Super Time Force
Super Time Force is a side scrolling shooter much like Metal Slug or Contra, except with more jumping, time travel, and dinosaurs. It's from Capybara Games, the makers of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP.
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition
This is an updated version of the already released quirky "Metroidvania" style game. Super Turbo Championship Edition is the version for next gen consoles, and will include all the DLC that was part of the PC Gold Edition, along with new levels, new moves, a new story line, and a new boss battle and mini boss battle.
Forced is a co-op arcade style action RPG for one to four players. The game puts you in the shoes of slaves in a tough fantasy gladiator school, condemned to fight to the death but determined to win your freedom.Players must utilize tactical elements and solve puzzles within the gladiator stages in order to survive.
Gunscape is at its core an FPS construction kit where you can use a tool kit to create any kind of first person shooter you want, whether it be a single player campaign with a story or a multiplayer arena. Then you can upload those levels and share them with others, along with having the ability to play levels others have made.
