Indie Games Summer Uprising Trailer

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
If you're anything like me, you enjoy bad 80's music, gourmet pizza, obscure references that make Dennis Miller consult Wikipedia and awesome games on the cheap. As we reported earlier, the good people at Microsoft are giving us the Indie Games Summer Uprising which aims to highlight some of the outstanding work of some of the Indie Developers on Xbox LIVE.

Today, Microsoft has released a trailer for the eight, currently-selected titles. Gamers of my generation might particularly enjoy the music from Mega Man 2.



While eight games are currently involved in the Uprising, there is still space for two more. Gamers can now vote on the final two games to be included in the uprising by visiting the Indie Games Summer Uprising Facebook Page (login required). Voting runs through August 14th and the winners will be announced on August 16th during the #IGSU Twitter chat at 9 PM EDT.

The XBLIG Summer Uprising titles will be released between August 22nd and September 2nd.
