This game is a supreme “What the…?!” that goes from crazy, to just so crazy it works. “Extreme XOXO” is a variant of tic-tac-toe that, get this, makes you *breed* your “X”s and “O”s. You have to manage both the strategic situation on the game board and the tactical situation with the breeding, and it adds up to an interesting challenge. Well, well, well worth checking out for strategy fans, but also possibly of interest for fans of Harvest Moon, Chao breeding in Sonic Adventure, and other farming/breeding games. 80 Microsoft Points gets you perhaps the most obscure game in the entire indie game catalogue.
Here’s what the developer (Dingy) has to say about the game:
“Annihilate your opponents in this strategic twist on the classic game of Tic Tac Toe! Breed your X’s and O’s and maintain a stable population to defend against your attackers. Welcome to Extreme Tic Tac Toe.”
