Microsoft has just announced 13 new [email protected] titles ahead of the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco next week. The Redmond giant is planning a big presence at GDC this year with some sessions dedicated to Project xCloud, as well as a new cross-platform Xbox Development Kit (XDK).
"We’re looking forward to this year at GDC, with 13 newly announced titles joining us in San Francisco and a total of 30 games featured across the Microsoft Booth, in the lower level of the South Hall, and our Developer Showcase event for media," wrote Jessica Ronnell, [email protected] Events and Community Management Lead. The latest [email protected] tites include Beholder 2, Boomerang Fu, CrossCode, Dead Static Drive, Door Kickers: Action Squad, HyperDot, Mowin’ & Throwin’, StarCrossed, Stela, The Forgotten City, Totem Teller, UnderMine and Unrailed. You can learn more about these games on Xbox Wire.
The [email protected] program remains a great way to bring more indie devs to release their games on Xbox One, and the program passed the 1,000 titles milestone last year. Highlights include the vintage-looking run and gun game Cuphead, the puzzle-platformer INSIDE or the farming simulation game Stardew Valley. These games usually get much less exposure than blockbuster AAA games, but if you pay attention you'll definitely notice some beautiful gems here and there.
