Xbox One and Windows 10 launches unfiltered XBLIG successor Creators Collection


Xbox One and Windows 10 have launched a new section of indie games that aren’t curated by Microsoft.

Called the Creators Collection, this unfiltered wave of games is effectively the successor to the Xbox 360’s XBLIG (Xbox Live Indie Games) category that stopped accepting new titles in 2015. In fact, all of those games will no longer be available for sale next month when the platform gets decommissioned.

But hey, at least we’ll have this new program that offers similarly small experimental titles. As far as how the Creators Collection differs from Microsoft’s usual avenue of self-published games, director of ID@Xbox explains:

“The Creators Program was established to enable developers to directly publish their games – any of their games – to Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, with a simplified certification process and no concept approval required.”

“Developers that publish through the Creators Program have the freedom and independence to develop games that are truly unique, resulting in a collection with games that can be quirky and have varying degrees of polish, but are always interesting.”
