At Microsoft’s E3 2015 press conference, a number of indie games were featured as part of their ID@Xbox program.

Some of the games featured were:

  • Beyond Eyes, from tiger & squid, is game where you help a blind girl explore the world around her. Incidentally, I got a chance to play this game at PAX East 2015, so you can check out my impressions for more details. The game will be released first on Xbox One and PC.
  • Cuphead, from StudioMDHR, is a platformer that has the aesthetic of a 1930s cartoon. It will be an Xbox exclusive. Check out the trailer here.
