Everything We Saw at the ID@Xbox Event

The latest ID@Xbox had something for indie fans of all stripes, including samurai swords, pixelated pro wrestlers, and cute little foxes…with swords. Basically, if you like the unique characters and locations of indie games, you’re in for a treat this year. What’s more, we’ve saved you the hassle of having to watch all the shows, and we’ve compiled everything we saw during the ID@Xbox event Livestream.

Flintlock: Siege of Dawn

Curse for golf

The “what if golf but weird” genre has experienced something of a renaissance in the last few years. This game seems to promise a more spooky approach to football, offering a journey to escape the “purgatory of golf” with power-ups, ghostly dangers, and an emphasis on replay.

Escape Academy

Everyone knows that high school can be hell, but at least you never had classes that turned into quest rooms. This is exactly what Escape Academy offers to future students: over a dozen quests that you can play alone or with friends. The game is published by iam8bit (a provider of quality video game merchandise) and features music from Doseone, the composer for entering the Gungeon, Gang Beast, and Sludge Life.

Described as an SRPG/JRPG combination influenced by games such as The Lord of the Rings, Suikoden, and Final Fantasy. Osfeld’s world is restless. Giant whales swim through the sky and whenever one of them dies, it falls to the ground and dramatically changes political and economic power, as well as causing a huge battle for the resources left behind by its body. Players will command an army to stop a plot to kill one of these majestic (and deadly) creatures, preventing global chaos.

Release date: to be confirmed
Platform: Console
Xbox Game Pass: TBD

Fight Quest

OH YEAH! Professional wrestlers like the late “Macho” Randy Savage, Andre the Giant and more will help you become a wrestling legend, all in pixel art style.
