From humble beginnings, to a massive umbrella of game developers, [email protected] has hit a massive milestone of launching 1000 games on Xbox through the program. [email protected] has been a major lifeline for Indie games to hit the Xbox store, allowing Indie studios to have a great means to put their product onto a console platform. Chris Charla, Seinor Director of [email protected] felt it was a good idea to give some recognition to the program, which it undoubtedly deserves.
“Over these past five years, we’ve seen the releases of incredible titles across every single genre imaginable – and lots of games we never could have imagined when we got started! We’re stoked that [email protected] is continuing to offer developers a place to share their stories in a meaningful way, helping to increase independent game discoverability and shaping Xbox One and Windows 10 as platforms that anyone can make games on and create with. We’re continuing to celebrate this momentum into the future and bring even more rad experiences to players with upcoming titles like Slow Bros.’s Harold Halibut, Capybara Games’ Below, Aurora 44’s Ashen, Black Desert from Pearl Abyss and Sable from Shedworks.” – Chris Charla
