ID@Xbox announces new YouTube series to highlight upcoming indie games

Sean Carey - April 3rd 2020

The ID@Xbox team has announced a new video series to highlight upcoming indie titles. ID@Xbox usually announces some of its new games at the Game Developers Conference, but due to its cancellation because of COVID-19, the team are taking a different approach.

ID@Xbox Spotlight aims to showcase some of the new indie titles coming to the Xbox platform. A total of six videos were published over on the ID@Xbox YouTube channel. In the videos, you'll hear the developers themselves as they give you a brief overview of their games. Some of the new titles announced include Adios, An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs, Legend of Keepers, Project Wingman, The Big Con and Undying.

The first video embedded above contains more on Adios, An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs, Bonkies, Haven (coming to Xbox Game Pass), Spiritfarer and West of Dead (coming to Xbox Game Pass).
