Just under a decade ago, Microsoft launched ID@Xbox on the Xbox One to shine that big, bright spotlight on indie games. From what I’ve heard, it has been quite the boon for developers, and now they’re taking their affection for all things indie games on Xbox a step further with Indie Selects.
Simply put, Indie Selects is, among other things, “a curated, dedicated collection in the Xbox Store”, to help Xbox users locate those precious hidden gems in the vast ocean that is indie games. This will be rotated every Wednesday and includes a channel called Featured Indies, where recently released indie games are showcased, alongside a second channel featuring a different theme each week. Like, say, ‘Games to Play With Your Cat (wait, what?).
Or how about ID@Xbox Indie Selects of the Month, a monthly highlight reel featuring six hand-picked titles? Maybe a “digital award featuring the Indie Selects logo”? All that and more either already is or will be coming to ID@Xbox in the near future. Hit the link below for full details.
