Xbox Live Indie Games has felt like an outpost of PC gaming on Xbox 360. It’s a space like Newgrounds, Game Jolt, or Itch, where anyone can make and release small games, which means its library of thousands has everything from scrappy gag games to some really pretty great stuff. And like PC gaming, Microsoft had no idea what to do with XBLIG – they hid the space away for years, and are now planning to close it.
But! Good (and RPS-relevant) news: four games from prolific XBLIG dev Mommy’s Best Games – who you might know for the gun-stacking Serious Sam Double D – have arrived on Steam, giving a small peek into the world.
