The ID@Xbox team announced ID@Xbox Spotlight, a new initiative to highlight new indie games coming soon to Xbox One. With several industry events like GDC and E3 being either postponed or cancelled this year, Chris Charla, Sr. Director, ID@Xbox explained that this new format will also allow indie devs to discuss their upcoming games with the Xbox audience.

“With these videos, you’ll hear from the developers themselves as they walk you through some of the exciting titles coming to Xbox – including some brand new announcements like Mischief’s Adios, Strange Scaffold’s An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs, Goblinz Studio’s Legend of Keepers, Sector D2’s Project Wingman, Mighty Yell’s The Big Con and Vanimals’ Undying,” said Carla.

Five videos have been published on the ID@Xbox YouTube channel today, showing just a small part of the 1,600 ID@XBOX games currently in development. You can watch the first one below.

In recent years, the ID@Xbox program gave Xbox gamers some pretty great games including the puzzle platformers Limbo and Inside, the run and gun game Cuphead, or the cooperative cooking simulation game Overcooked 2. Two years ago, Carla announced that 1,000 ID@Xbox games had been released on Xbox One since the launch of the program.
