Obscure Indie RPG Guarding Released on XBLIG
“Follow a group of young warriors as they begin their perilous journey. Choose your party and fend off monsters with a variety of magic and skills!”–Official Xbox Live Indie Games Marketplace description
If you’re an RPG fan like me, you may look forward to role-playing titles released on the Xbox Indies marketplace.
Often times players can find pretty impressive quality titles for a buck or three, giving hours worth of entertainment for a small asking price.
Many times, however, these Indie titles are obscure and it’s quite hard to track down the developers. Since the XBLIG Marketplace is built by the XNA Community, journalists often have to have access to the XNA community itself to get ahold of the devs.
This makes the titles and the developers a bit obscure, as many XBLIG developers have websites and social media networks, taking an active interest in the gaming community itself…but not all developers have that sort of time.
Guarding is one of those more obscure Xbox Indie RPG’s, and it’s almost impossible to find any details of the game anywhere on the net because it’s quite new. There’s only a single video I could find–and it’s not a trailer of the game itself–that shows off the trial version of the game.
Check below for a few screenshots and the included video from Rickettz Studios’ “10 Minutes to Win It” Xbox Indie Games series on YouTube.
