From June 21- 27, over 30 demos of unreleased indie games will be available to sample, accessible via the Xbox dashboard.
They’ll be playable for one week, and while some might be made available again at a later date, most will simply be removed.
“These ‘game demos’ are not the norm,” explained Jessica Ronnell, ID@Xbox’s events and community management lead. “Typically, the demos you see in our Demo channel are created after the game is completed (or nearly completed) and represents an almost final to final version.
“Think of these as akin to ‘show floor demos’ and not necessarily indicative of the final product,” she added. “What that means is that you’ll get to experience these games early – some way early – which is awesome since you’ll have the chance to provide your feedback!”
A full list of demos will be published closer to the event’s launch, but the line-up includes:
A stylish single-player FPS featuring a fluid stunt system, destructible voxel environments, loads of bullet time, a unique one-armed protagonist, and a dark electronic soundtrack.
