The 5 Games We Need from the 2024 IGN ID@Xbox Showcase

After our own heart, ID@Xbox 2024 (Independent Developers @ Xbox) has been on a mission to help players find their next indie game.

The team behind the ID@Xbox initiative recently partnered with IGN for the 2024 IGN ID@Xbox Showcase. See the 5 games we need with our coverage – no multi-page clickthrough required.

The 5 Games We Can’t Wait to Play from the 2024 IGN ID@Xbox Showcase

Stampede: Racing Royale

Sumo Leamington and Secret Mode’s Stampede: Racing Royale ramps up the kart formula by turning it into a 60-player battle royale. 

Taking cues from other racers, players can use weird and wonderful items to stay ahead of the pack, and can customize to their heart’s content.

It’s the strong pedigree that we’re drawn to as well – we loved Sonic & All-Star Racing Transformed and Hotshot Racing, and this looks to continue the trend.


Inspired by the Mario&Luigi RPG series and Chrono Trigger, Moonata and Serenity Forge’s Keylocker combines the rhythm genre with the RPG one.

As singer and songwriter B0B0, players will be able to choose their path as a cyberpunk rebel as they channel electricity to their doing.

We’re suckers for rhythm games, and we love how Keylocker puts a spin on the genre with its engaging turn-based combat.

Jackbox Naughty Pack

The Jackbox series gets M-rated (Mature 17+) with the release of the Jackbox Naughty Pack.

Featuring an “intimate” pack of three games, we’re looking forward to seeing this Cards Against Humanity foil to the typical Apples to Apples action – just don’t tell mom.

The title will release in 2024.

Times & Galaxy

Copychaser Games and Fellow Traveller will send players off on an interplantery adventure with Times & Galaxy.

Stepping into the shoes of a robo reporter, players will get the scoop and earn the trust of more than 100 different characters. We can’t wait to build a story of our own – players can get a jump on things with the Steam demo that is now available.

Lost Records: Bloom & Rage

DON’T NOD’s latest title is the narrative adventure game Lost Records: Bloom & Rage.

Players will follow the story of quirky introvert Swann in the summer of ‘95. What makes things unique is its setting, with the sights and sounds of Velvet Cove captured by Swann’s camcorder.
