Microsoft has revealed
17 titles new to ID@Xbox, the Xbox One’s indie-developed games, ahead of Game

To be clear, these are
not all newly announced titles. They are simply revealed to be coming to Xbox
One and might be coming to other platforms. Some titles are enhanced for Xbox
One X and/or are part of Xbox Play Anywhere, which essentially gives buyers a digital
copy of the game to play on the console and a PC.
Here is a list of the 17
9 Monkeys of Shaolin (enhanced for Xbox One X)
Apocalypse Cow (enhanced for X, part of Xbox
Can’t Drive This (enhanced for X, Play Anywhere)
Dead Ahead: Zombie Warfare
Once Upon a Coma (enhanced for X)
One Finger Death Punch 2
Pinbrawl (part of Play Anywhere)
Planet Alpha (enhanced for X)
Russian Subway Dogs
Squadron 51 (Play Anywhere)
Thief of Thieves
Virgo Vs The Zodiac (Play Anywhere)
GDC is from March 19 to March
23 in San Francisco. Microsoft says they will have over 50 games at the event, some available to the public, others at private press screenings.
poll from January revealed interesting data about the industry, including
the rise of games coming to Switch and virtual reality’s decline.
More games are always welcoming, and it’s always great seeing a huge company like Microsoft putting indies in the spotlight. Some of the most surprising games have come from small teams. Maybe the next heavy hitter is among this roster.
