The XBox Live Indie Game service has always been pretty dry and barren on content, and with a few notable exceptions the quality of what is available has been rather lackluster at best. However, Microsoft hopes to change that image on the first week of December with a host of new games, check out the RPGs in the lineup below.
Equal parts dungeon crawler, strategy and adventure, MagicalTimeBeans follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Soulcaster features an all-new set of worlds to explore and a soundtrack glossed in late-80's redbook audio excess. Also: exploding skeletons.
Cthulhu Saves the World
The next RPG from the creators of the popular parody RPG, Breath of Death VII: The Beginning, Cthulhu Saves the World features a new 16-bit visual style, a fantastic soundtrack, sophisticated yet streamlined gameplay, and an epic tale of insanity, romance, and redemption. Save the world to destroy it.
The ultimate dungeon crawling experience! Multiple character classes and fast-paced gameplay make Epic Dungeon one of the most enjoyable roguelikes to date.
Aphelion: Episode Two: Wings of Omega
The conclusion to one of the most popular RPG franchises on XBox Live Indie Games, players will reprise the role of Savion Mercarte as they pick up where Episode One: Graves of Earth left off.
