I know Nintendo has gotten a lot of play on this blog over the last few weeks and months--mostly due to my obsession with the company's first handheld, the GameBoy--but I'm no Nintendo fanboy.
Or, at least I'm not such a Nintendo fanboy that I can't find games made and released for the systems of other companies (like Microsoft and Sony) appealing, too.
Cases in point: the following trio of Xbox One indie titles that were showcased during Microsoft's E3 2014 press conference earlier today.
This first one (above) is for Cuphead, a uniquely styled platformer that's being crafted by Studio MDHR, a game developer I'd never heard of before this morning.
Anyway, the main point of interest for me when it comes to this title--which isn't expected to see the light of day until sometime next year--is its Steamboat Willie-esque art style.
Android Base's neon-tinged Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, above, is quite a looker, too, if you ask me.
Like Cuphead, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime also will be released for PC (and Mac, via Steam), although when those releases will occur is still up in the air.
Last, but not least, there's Ori and the Blind Forest, by Moon Studios. Actually, I'm a bit less enamored with this one than I am with the others, but that's not saying much as I'm still pretty keen on it.
Were any of you similarly blown away by any of these digital Xbox One titles? If so, which ones--and why?
