Since getting some hands on time with OnLive at the annual EuroGamer Expo at Earls Court, London, we have been keeping a close eye on the game streaming service, today we have great news for you as six indie title are being added to the OnLive game library.
These games should be popular additions, firstly we can confirm that Limbo is on its way, this puzzle-platformer has been a very popular offering on Xbox Live, PSN and Steam, therefore OnLive gamers will be happy to hear that it is in bound. Another great game which is on its way is Bastion, this is an action RPG which has received great from reviews from the harshest of critics.
The other four games are Avadon: The Black Fortress, Magicka, Orcs Must Die and Space Chem. Perhaps the most popular out of these is Magicka, up until now this game has only been available for PC, but initial sales were promising and we think that a launch on OnLive will bring even more success to the game’s developer, Arrowhead Game Studios.
Here is a quote from John Spinale, OnLive’s VP of games, when speaking about indies:
“Simply put, they’re making some really great, innovative games these days. We love bringing amazing new experiences to our OnLive members, and also helping innovative developers get their ideas out to a larger, more diverse audience of gamers. Win-win.”
We currently have no details regarding prices and release dates, therefore we will have to keep you posted as we hear more. We will definitely be checking out these games when they arrive, if your not sure which game to buy don’t forget there will be free 30 minute trials available.
