You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t heard of (or weren’t overly familiar with)Xbox’s Creator’s Collection. Effectively the spiritual successor to Xbox Live Indie Games, Creator’s Collection games primarily focus on simple, “pick up and play” type of games from small developers/the community. The best of the best can go on to be part of the ID@Xbox program as well. This ranges from simple platformers to versions of classic games like Brick Breaker. For those of you interested in checking out some of these indie games but hesitate to put money down on an unknown game/developer, good news. Here are a list of indie games on Xbox One that only require a down-payment of your time to check out (that means they are free).
While there is no guarantee of quality the price point is hard to argue if looking for something new to check out (please note, there is no guarantee that a game on this list will remain free).
