IndieWatch: XBL Indie Games get proper promotion on german dashboard

Somebody's Watching Me

In the UK, there's currently a dashboard promotion for a deodorant that will make hot angel chicks fall from the sky. Why am I telling you this? Well, as I don't intend to ever review a game by Silver Dollar Games, I assumed this would be a good chance to mention hot babes in my blog at least once. Also, there are no such super model angels to be found on the german Xbox LIVE dashboard (no, they don't even have the IGN Strategize babe), but someone came up with a really good idea instead (yes, I'm finally getting to the point of this post). The german GamePro magazine now has a bi-weekly series called 'IndieWatch' on the Inside Xbox channel with videos promoting selected XBL Indie Games.

The first issue features the following games:


PLATFORMANCE: Castle Pain

Arkedo Series 03 - PIXEL!

Your Doodles Are Bugged!

Obesity Epidemic



A pretty good selection of quality titles, and it will not come as a surprise to you that all four games have reappeared and been staying on the Top Downloads list since the launch of 'IndieWatch' on February, 24th. The effects of a dashboard promotion are obvious, so let's hope that more magazines in other countries will follow up with a similar coverage of Xbox LIVE Indie Games. It's really sad that I have to conclude this post with the fact that 'Office Affairs' is currently #1 on the Top Downloads list in Germany. Oh well, but I'm confident the new episode of 'IndieWatch' next week will rectify this situation.
