Indie Game Makers Unite In "Winter Uprising" On Xbox Live

Declaring an insurrection against "massage apps, clones and garbage," a ragtag band of indie developers on Xbox Live's Indie Channel are going all out the first week of December, unleashing 14 games in the "Indie Games Winter Uprising."

The games will be priced between 80 and 400 Microsoft Points (a buck to five bucks) and will include newcomers as well as veterans of the indie scene. Offerings will include Cthulhu Saves the World, by the minds behind the parody RPG Breath of Death VII: The Beginning; Radiangames' Crossfire 2; the "intense retro shoot 'em up" Decimation X3; Chu's Dynasty, billed as a Street-Fighter-meets-Super-Smash-Bros. fighter; and Ska Studios, maker of the crowd favourite I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1NIT!!!1, returns with ZP2KX: Zombies & Pterodactyls.

    How can Australians use the Indie Channel for Xbox live?

      You need a US XBL account, easy enough to set up, and easy enough to fund with points actually. There are a few guides around online to setting it up, well worth it for the few gems there are on Indie Games, and certainly worth it if you have an avatar/massage fetish.

    An uprising?? Eeeeeek!

    How lucky I am to be safe behind the impenetrable walls of market separation.

    Sure everything costs more and sure there's way less choice and sure there's the presumption that everyone is incapable of making an informed decision on the suitability of entertainment but damn it it keeps us safe from those revolutionary uprisings!
