Indies tool up for Winter Uprising

Now that everyone's getting on again, a number of developers to launch a fresh indie offensive on the Xbox Live Indie Games service.

Coming on like a chillier, cheaper take on Xbox Live Summer of Arcade, The Indie Games Winter Uprising initiative will see the spotlight turned onto 14 impending titles, all due for release in the first week of December.

A spokesperson explained, "If you thought that the Xbox Live Indie Games service was just filled with massage apps, clones, and garbage, think again!

"We are fighting back against mediocrity and lameness in the best way we know how – by releasing amazing games! Mark your calendars, because the first week of December is going to be the best week of gaming the service has ever seen."

Priced between 80 and 400 Points, the Winter Uprising titles include:

  • Soulcaster 2
  • Cthulhu Saves the World
  • Radiangames Crossfire 2
  • Chu's Dynasty
  • Alpha Squad
  • Epic Dungeon
  • Break Limit
  • Decimation X3
  • Asteroids Do Concern Me
  • Hypership Out of Control (Update)
  • Ubergridder
  • Rickenbacker vs. the Aliens
  • Aphelion: Episode Two: Wings of Omega
  • ZP2KX: Zombies & Pterodactyls!
