Microsoft reveals first 25 Xbox One games via ID@Xbox self-published program

Strike Suit Zero is one of the games coming to the Xbox One via ID@Xbox.

After at first stating that all Xbox One games must have a publisher before they could be released, Microsoft later changed its tune and announced the ID@Xbox self-publishing program. Today, Microsoft officially announced the first 25 games that are planned for release as part of ID@Xbox.

The list of games is a mix of titles that have been released already on other platforms combined with titles that are exclusive to the Xbox One. Microsoft said the first games from this list should be released "in the coming weeks" but did not give any specific release dates.

Microsoft has said that 250 small indie developers have signed up for the ID@Xbox program so far. It also listed a number of other game titles that will be a part of the program in the future, including Pool Nation FX, Another World, Stick it to the Man, Ninja Cowboys, Mortar Melon and The ARC.

In July, Microsoft also said that it would provide tools that would turn any retail Xbox One console into a game development kit, but so far the company has yet to offer an update on those plans.

according to descriptions: “FRU” by Through Games is kinect based but it also says most games taking advantage of 8 player based gameplay and kinect.

Nice list, will get CastleStorm. Strike Suit Zero was big letdown on the PC, starts off as a really cool space dogfighter, but then devolves into crazy hard escort and guard missions that are too much for my patience even on easy...

What really needs to come back is FreeSpace, and I'm talking about the Open Source Project, I'm talking about part 3, I've been waiting for too long.
