Riot: Civil Unrest is Available Now on Xbox One

Riot’s story began with Leonard Menchiari who experienced the rioting first-hand in Italy during the NoTav protests, (the NoTav protests opposed the building of a high-speed railway from Turin in Italy, to Lyon in France). Protestors were opposed to the destruction of the landscape, the potential pollution and the overall cost of this project. Leonard spoke with both protestors and police, discovering what drove people to take a stand and how officers empathized (and in some cases agreed), with protestors but had to maintain order and safety. Leonard decided to use his background in filmmaking and love of video games… …

Soar to New Heights with The King’s Bird Today on Xbox One

I co-founded Serenity Forge along with a couple of friends a few years ago; and since then we’ve co-developed games like Where the Water Tastes Like Wine and the upcoming Once Upon a Coma, as well as ported and published games like A Case of Distrust, Four Sided Fantasy, and Lifeless Planet. The King’s Bird has a special place in our hearts because it’s one of the first original ideas that we conceived, way back when we were literally working out of a basement. The goal was simple: we wanted to create a precision-platformer in the realm of indie hits… …

Adventure FPS Away: Journey to the Unexpected Available Now on Xbox One

Hello everyone! Away: Journey to the Unexpected is a colorful first-person adventure game with rogue-lite elements, heavily inspired by anime from our childhood, and it’s available today on Xbox One. The game has evolved quite a bit since its prototype. To celebrate the launch, let’s take a look back at how it changed throughout development. In the first concept of the game, you had to capture spirits but we figured making friends was much more fun. So, we ended up changing the name of the game to what it currently is!

Pipe Push Paradise’s Puzzle Purgatory Comes to Xbox One

Hey! I’m Corey Martin. My pal Teodoro Zamudio and I made a small open-world puzzle game called Pipe Push Paradise, which I’m very excited to say will be available to download for Xbox One today! ‘Thinky’ puzzle games so seldom get console releases, and I’m proud to be a small part of changing that. Pipe Push Paradise is something of a throwback to old DOS classics like Sokoban and Pipe Dream (aka Pipe Mania), extruded into 3D. It’s also heavily inspired by modern puzzle games such as The Witness, Stephen’s Sausage Roll, and A Good Snowman is Hard to Build…. …

Bombfest Crosses the Finish Line, Available Now on Xbox One

Hey Friends! Bombfest is available now on Xbox One, and with its release, I will be accomplishing a dream I never thought possible. Ever since I was a child, I loved creating stories and experiences and games to share with others. I would run around the playground and set up obstacle courses for my friends to race through, or draw out race tracks and landscapes for paper characters to explore. Video games were a big part of my childhood. I played Zelda on my father’s SNES, and then Halo on PC. From there, I got invested in StarCraft and Team… …
