The Best Xbox Live Indie Games

Back in 2015 Microsoft announced they are going to close down Xbox Live Indie Games (XBLIG). They claim that their ID@Xbox (Independent Developers) program lets bedroom developers make games for the Xbox One, but according to this article it costs at least $4000 dollars per game on required insurance and ratings board payments.

It's a shame they're not continuing XBLIG, because there are some really good games on there. This is my personal "most original games of XBLIG" list::

  1. Solar (and it's sequel Solar 2)
  2. Hidden in Plain Sight (a local multiplayer game)
  3. Your Doodles Are Bugged
  4. Light's End
  5. Along Came A Spider
  6. Smooth Operators

And all these games are worth checking out too (in no particular order):

  • Breath of Death VII (and it's sequel Ctulhu Saves the World)
  • Final Rift
  • Shoot 1UP
  • Soulcaster
  • Abduction Action!
  • Zombie Estate
  • Megalopolis
  • NextWar: The Quest for Earth
  • CarneyVale Showtime
