These are the XBLIGs that I recommend you buy before it’s too late

Microsoft are going to be delisting XBLIGs (Xbox Live Indie Games) from Xbox Live soon, meaning that no one will be able to purchase these games any more, and the games will be lost in time like tears in rain.

You still have between now and the 29th of September to purchase games. Any games you have purchased before the cut off will still be attached to your account, and you will still be able to download and play them going forward, but new purchases will be impossible.

There is no indication that these games will ever be made available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility, and given that they will not be available for sale going forward, I’d say that the chances of this ever happening are pretty slim, but it’s not impossible.

These are the XBLIGs that I think are particularly worth your attention.

    “Protect Me Knight” is a good multiplayer game, which can also be played single player although it’s less fun on your own.
    The title shows up in Japanese when you search for it, but the text is English in game.

    Miner Dig Deep is missing from this list. Absolute must buy before it’s lost to the ether (AFAIK it isn’t available anywhere else)
