Xbox One Roundabout

Microsoft revealed ID@Xbox program last year which allowed independent developers to self-publish games to Xbox Store. Phil Spencer from Microsoft few days back revealed that NinjaBee’s Nutjitsu and a mystery Team17 Worms game will be among the first ID@Xbox titles released. Indie developer No Goblin has revealed that its racer game Roundabout, is making its way to the Xbox One. Roundabout will be developed for the Xbox One using the ID@Xbox independent developers publishing program.The developer even praised ID@Program, read it below.

Alongside the Windows, Mac and Linux versions that you can pre-order right now, we’re also going to be releasing Roundabout on Xbox One. We have dev kits in house, and we’re really excited to be shipping our debut game on next gen hardware.

To answer the question on everyone’s lips: Yes, we will investigate yelling “Xbox, HONK HONK” to activate the limo’s horn.

A huge thanks has to go to Chris Charla and Richard Rouse over at the ID@Xbox team for making what’s easily the most appealing console platform for developers like us to release on. Diving into the Xbox One universe has been super easy for us, and Chris and Richard have been incredibly responsive and helpful in dealing with all of my old man game developer quirks.

Personally, I think ID@Xbox is going to take a lot of people by surprise. We’re super honored to be included with one of the first waves of developers to release through the program.

    They should have brought the program to Windows Phone. The store has been missing the addition of some Xbox-enabled games for some time.
