    Hi,

    Just a heads-up ‘Little Acorns’ makes it on to Xbox Indie this week (fingers-crossed)
    Expect 80 levels of pixel-perfect platforming as Mr. Nibbles tries to feed his every-growing family.
    EXCLUSIVE to the Xbox version is a 2-up co-o mode for double the fun.

    Produce Wars is coming soon to XBOX Live Indie Games. We’ve already received comments that the game looks like it may be one of the best XBLIG has seen in a while. We just hope that they are right. :)

  3. Here is a video of Smudged Cat’s XBLIG game, Gateways. In this voice-over video I show how each of the different gateway types (regular, resizing, rotation and time travel) function and solve a puzzle using the time travel gateway gun.

    Gateways was released for XBLIG and PC earlier in 2012.

  6. Hello!

    Platformer From Hell is now on the marketplace, and we would love for you to review it! If you send me an email at HoosierGames at gmail, I’d be happy to send you a promotional code for a free copy! Here’s some information about the game.

    Platformer from Hell takes the well known video game tropes of gravity, switches, and platforms and pushes them to their limit. Hell is a dangerous place, but also a tricky one. It boasts platforming that requires both puzzle logic and fast reaction times. The game’s star, “Tie Guy” can platform with the best of them, but is completely ready for you to repeatedly eviscerate him in the dark and varied depths of Hell during his attempted escape.

    While you dismember Tie Guy over and over in 25 levels of futile escape attempts, don’t forget to lust unnecessarily after the 25 bonus dollars that are the key to unlocking 5 more bonus levels, and reuniting “Tie Guy” with his one true love, Pastrami. Take control of Tie Guy to navigate thrilling jumps and mind boggling gravity puzzles in the first platformer truly from Hell.

    Platformer from Hell is an easy game to dive right into as the controls for Tie Guy are accessible to veteran gamers and first time gamers alike. The replay value of Platformer from Hell comes from our creative level design and clever use of simple mechanics. Levels will have you desperately attempting another escape run, even after countless failed attempts.

    Platformer from Hell was developed by Team Up and Over, a collection of developers who formed under Hoosier Games and made the game entirely for no pay. Profits from Platformer from Hell go back to Hoosier Games to help budding game developers in Indiana attend industry events like Game Developers Conference and grant them access to new development tools. Platformer from Hell is a true labor of love from gamers to gamers, that funds new developers, only costs a dollar, and you can try out some levels for free by just heading to the indie arcade on your xbox and downloading the trial.

    Hi – our pixel shooter Aqua Kitty launched onto XBLIG on 9th June 2013 (not the best timing with E3 kicking off). This game in an upgraded version of the Vita version which reviewed well last year scoring 8/10 or better.
    Pilot your submarine and defend the milk mining kittens under the ocean from mechanical sea creatures – the milk must flow!

    Dirchie Kart 2 is retro kart racing fun without the retro frustrations, its compact but detailed racing model distils a much larger simulation type race experience down to a juicy few minute burst.

    Full Avatar support, the cast of original characters, vehicles and locales provide a fun backdrop for the single and split screen multiplayer modes. The unique party mode (where the players alternately select from Race, Battle and Drag events), penalty system and item pickup or shop modes allow players to personalise their multiplayer experience. It can even be played as a drinking game if you are so inclined.

    Enjoy,

    Pete.

    • I loved the original Dirchie Kart, so this is one I would recommend people check out! I’ll be checking it out myself, once it drops off the Dashboard. Here’s hoping it doesn’t anytime soon! :)

    You have played block-matching games before, but you have never experienced the dual-stick single player or the cooperative multiplayer action of Angry Blocks. Whether on the same couch, thru System Link, or over Xbox Live, you can connect with a friend to take your block matching skills to the next level. Can anyone possibly handle all 21 colors at once? Good Luck!

    A new XBLIG is in town, Zombie Mine Quest

    Zombie Mine Quest has just been released on the Xbox 360. It was inspired by ASCII text adventures and rogue-likes, except it has a modern twist. Check this procedural-generated dungeon crawler out.

    If you want a promo code just drop me an email.

    Thanks man,

  22. I just released my first XBLIG game – “Bitcoin Tycoon”.

    Here’s the trailer:
    https://vimeo.com/91674611

    Build your small town into a bustling metropolis using the power of virtual currency. Starting with only a small hot-dog stall, you must accumulate Bitcoin, breed Alpacas, build Hydroelectric power stations, and wrangle with Red Tape to create a thriving city.

    Screenshots and a trailer are available on the official website:
    http://www.onebravepixel.com

    And of course the marketplace link is:

  23. My first XBLIG game too … looks like we are the ones late to the party ;-)

    The game is an exploration of short challenges with ‘broken controls’. It’s a bit mean.

    Hello Everyone,

    After almost a year and a half of hard work, I’m proud to announce that I have published one more XBLIG game, “Battle for Demon City”, which hit the marketplace recently. It’s a 3D Third-Person-Shooter where the objective is to gun down all enemies while uncovering the culprit of such riot. Here’s a link to a video that describes, in a nutshell, what the game is about.

    As the video shows, it’s a “light” game that tries to cater to people that find the average “FPS Zombie Game” a little bit too overwhelming or too dark for their taste. Among the features that make it a different experience than other shooters available in the marketplace are:
    * Detailed, true frame-to-frame animation (over 200 animation sequences for a total of over 2300 frames),
    * Hair animation & face expression,
    * Mazes created randomly to increase re-playability,
    * A witty story.

    I’m crossing my fingers, hoping that the game lives up to your expectations.
