Summer Uprising Indie Game Lineup Announced

by Matt Miller on Jul 18, 2011 at 08:26 AM

If the upcoming Summer of Arcade promotion doesn't have enough cool downloadable games for you, then dig into the games of the Summer Uprising.

Late last year, the folks working on games for the Xbox Live Indie scene got together and developed a promotion called the Winter Uprising. The plan must have worked out pretty well, because a similar event is on the way in late August called the Indie Game Summer Uprising.

The project aims to highlight some of the awesome work being completed by independent game developers on Xbox 360. While the event (and the trailer at the bottom of this story) highlight a number of different games being released, the developers have voted on eight games to be highlighted as part of the Uprising. Two more games will be voted on by the community and announced later.

We've included trailers for all eight of the games that were voted on by the developers, which are all planned for release between August 22 and September 2. Scroll all the way down for a more general trailer of the Summer Uprising promotion.
