XBL Indie Games Uprising returns this summer, taking submissions

Following the "commercial and critical success" of last year's Xbox Live Indie Games Winter Uprising promotion, a new Uprising event has been announced for this summer. The clearly named Indie Games Summer Uprising is scheduled to kick off on August 22 and run through September 12, with two games planned to release each week.

This time XBLIG developers are being called upon to submit their games ahead of time for consideration. Starting July 4, voting will begin to decide the final list of featured titles. There's already and impressive list of candidates, with over two dozen games submitted. You'd best hurry if you'd like your project considered: Submissions will only be accepted until June 24.

We've included trailers for some of our favorite submissions after the break.
