XBox Live Indie Catch-All: Dry Spell

UPDATED April 19 2011

Some of us have braved the world of XBox Live Community Games, now known as XBox Live Indie Games (XBLIG). There are tons of titles (the Wiki says 1300), and there are some decent games and even some great games in there. There are also, however, unbelievably bad flaming turds, games with potential but no polish, games with visual polish with no potential, etc. Pretty much, there's everything in the mother f*cker.

Pricing is a little wonky in here. You can find awesome stuff for $1, and you can uncover crap for $5. The sweet-point I've been finding recently is $1, for some titles like Angry Barry you'll pay a bit more. I will say that some of the titles are more tech demos than games, and some play better than XBox Live Arcade games.

And do you think you can do better? I can't do sh*t with this, but here's a book for learning XNA 4.0 by Aaron Reed.

Awesome work on that bannery thingy.

To actually contribute, there are two old school RPGs by the same guy that are quite good: Breath of Death VII and Cthulu Saves the World. One and three dollars respectively, I believe.

Ooh, I'll second the recommendation for Hypership Out of Control, which is an interesting take on an old idea. The DGR guys reviewed it in their podcast from the 3rd Oct 2010 - 29:20 in I think.

Also, I found Machiavelli's Ascent a really pretty and relaxing distraction. It's a game in which you play a jellyfish attempting to reach the surface from the sea-floor by "riding" bubbles which fire you upwards a short distance. You must steer between these bubbly boosts and chain them together in order to continually climb; as soon as you start slipping backwards it's game over and you need to start again from the sea-floor. You steer left and right using the left and right triggers which makes it far more of a challenge than it would initially appear. I think it cost me a £1 and I've played it enough to cover that completely, not something that I'd drop everything to play, but definitely a fun little aside.

Radiangames' last title on XBLI: Ballistic ($1). If you like Geometry Wars and are a sucker for simple yet complex graphics, than this is one is for you. There are 7 total titles from Radiangames on XBLI, all but 2 are twin-stick shooters, but all are $1, and all are pretty good. (I still have to re-size the screens)



This week actually has a game where you create life. Sort of. "Spermatazoon." Even the people behind this game are excited for it. Here's what it says:

Spermatozoon is an original game where your objective is to fertilize an ovum. You can play alone or with 2-4 players locally for even more fun.

Ringing endorsement, or endorsing a ringer?

Today I noticed the titles of a new game, it's called.. wait for it..

... Ninja Stole My Bike.

Protect Me Knight is the best game I have ran into as of yet. I'm trying to get some friends to play some CO-OP. 4 players protect the princess with 4 different classes and build walls to defend her. It's sort of a brawl mix with tower defense.

Check out the video.

Also Dig Deep Miner is also another favorite of me mine. Video here.

I'll check them out soon, right now I'm recovering from Old School Destruction and its horrible load times and meh gameplay. The stupid silly load time- and this could be something with my machine I suppose- seemed to eat up almost half of the trial game time. That's 1st generation PSP-type horrible right there.

The quality is equally getting better and worse in the XBLI.

One of the Indie developers is hitting the semi-big-time, Mommy's Best Games is developing an indie tie-in to Serious Sam's upcoming release. Mommy's version is Serious Sam: Double D. And, it's got something that is particularly awesome: the Gunstacker.


A gun-stacker?! That was my dream as a child!

If you've played Warning Forever on the PC, then Infinity Danger from Milkstone Studios may be up your alley on XBox Indies, and at $1? Awesome. As much as I like the Warning Forever vector look, Infinity's fleshed-out graphics are decent for an indie title. Some good Boss Battles in this one.

They keep banging out games, but most of them keep banging into the wall. Fortresscraft Chapter 1 is out but I've been unable to demo it, I guess it's a buy-only clone-ripoff of Minecraft for the 360 being released in $1 chapters to keep cost down.

Joystiq just posted about a new XBLIG called Arcadecraft that came out today.

You are the owner of a brand new arcade in 1980, and you have 2 years to pay back your business loan and its interest. You choose which machines to buy, where to place them, you go around and empty the coin bins, get to throw out unruly customers, and deal with the regular day-to-day stuff with managing an arcade in the 80s.

And its actually awesome and fun to play.

The music is good for an XBLIG, and the graphics are certainly above par.

And it's only $3/240 space bucks.

Also, there's a Steam Greenlight campaign going on for it as well.
