Xbox One shows off 65 new indies: Playdead, Behemoth, Ska, Fatshark


More than 200 developers currently have Xbox One dev kits through Microsoft's indie outreach program, ID@Xbox, Director Chris Charla announced on Xbox Wire. He provided a list of 65 unannounced Xbox One developers, including the following notables:

Limbo studio Playdead, Monaco port team Empty Clip Studios, War of the Roses developer Fatshark, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD studio Robomodo, Crush3D team Zoe Mode, Gateways developer Smudged Cat Games, QUBE studio Toxic Games and new developer 4gency, working on space base sandbox game, Habitat. 4gency founder Charles Cox helped launch the Xbox One before going indie in September.

Microsoft veterans such as Ska Studios (Charlie Murder), Mediatonic (Foul Play), The Behemoth (Castle Crashers) and Humble Hearts (Dust: An Elysian Tail) are also on board for Xbox One. A few studios with projects exclusive to PS4 are on Microsoft's list, such as Bloober Team (Basement Crawl) and Compulsion Games (Contrast), and even Triple Town developer Spry Fox, whose next game, Road Not Taken, is in development for PS4, Vita and desktops.
