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 like Dustforce and Super Meat Boy, but we wanted it to have a big emphasis on the flow and beauty of movement. The physics and... Read more: Soar to New Heights with The King’s Bird Today on Xbox One

The Evoland Series: From Game Jam Project to Worldwide Success

Hello, time traveler! I’m Nicolas, lead game developer at Shiro Games, a French independent studio. We released Evoland and Evoland 2 on PC few years ago and we’re now introducing the Evoland Legendary Edition on Xbox One which includes both titles! The initial concept of Evoland was imagined during a Game Jam (Ludum Dare #24). The theme of this Game Jam was evolution. We had the idea of creating a game which would evolve through its structure rather than through its content. From there, we worked on building a full game and because a large part of the team is formed by retro-gaming enthusiasts, Evoland's core concept is based on nostalgia, and Evoland 2 allowed us to explore more...

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! We had to make sure the game would be fun, so we built everything with cubes and sketches. It's pretty nice to see how things changed between then and now....

From Lunchbox to Xbox: The Story of Conarium

We were on a lunch break in 2014 where we first started talking about Conarium. It was 11 years after we founded Zoetrope Interactive and 4 years since we’d released our last game, Darkness Within 2. At the time we were still working our day job at a mobile phone company. Bored, restless and at our wits end, our hearts had become set on getting out and creating games full-time – we just needed a good project. Luckily for us, we just experienced The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, which we thought was fantastic and it sparked our imagination. Eventually, we settled on the idea of doing a modern take on our past titles in this style – an adventure game rooted in atmosphere, puzzles and H.P....

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. As Pipe Push Paradise’s designer, it was very important to me to explore the game's system thoroughly and obsessively, to... Read more: Pipe Push Paradise’s Puzzle Purgatory Comes to Xbox One
