There are so many great indie games on Xbox Series X, but combing through the hundreds of titles available can be overwhelming, especially if you’re unfamiliar with what’s on offer. To help, we rounded up 15 of our favorite indie games we think every Xbox owner should play.
All 15 games are available for purchase on the Microsoft Store app or are downloadable at no additional cost to Xbox Game Pass subscribers (starting at $10 per month). Note that Microsoft regularly adds and removes games from the Game Pass library so some titles may no longer be available in the future, but they’re all included at the time of writing.
There are obviously way more indie games on Xbox Series X and Game Pass than those we cover here, so feel free to offer additional suggestions in the comments, too. And hey, if you’re a PlayStation player, we also have a companion list for PlayStation indies you should check out—though many of these games are also available on PS4 and PS5, as well.
