The "Indie Games Uprising" is back to remind people of the Xbox Live Indie Games Service's existence, and to promote a series of upcoming games. From September 10 through September 20, nine new games will be released as part of the grassroots "Indie Games Uprising III" promotion.
Those games include puzzle-platformer Gateways by Uprising vet Smudged Cat Games and qrth-phyl, an "arcade documentary of classic maze/snake mechanics" by hermitgames. Entries by new developers include Michael Hicks' Sententia, "a game that explores the challenges we face to keep our imagination and creative spirits alive as we grow;" Chris Zukowski's City Tuesday, about a man reliving five minutes before a terrorist attack; tricktale's Roguelike Diehard Dungeon; Gristmill Studios' Xenominer, a "block-building sandbox game;" Autotivity's puzzle game Entropy; the first-person Pixel by Ratchet Game Studios; and a call center strategy game (!) by Andreas Heydeck called Smooth Operators.
