ID@Xbox has been stealthily adding new indie titles to the Xbox One over the last few days, what with 1001 Spikes, Outlast, its Whistleblower DLC, Zombie Driver: Ultimate Edition, and 60 Second Shooter Prime. And now two more indie titles enter the mix!
Xbox One owners can pick up the formerly PS4 exclusive platformer Contrast, in which you control the imaginary friend of a young girl in a 1920’s vaudevillian, film noir setting. Contrast received great praise on the PS4, with Venturebeat describing it as “It’s as if Limbo and Bioshock Infinite had a baby while watching Pan’s Labyrinth.” Contrast is available for download right now at $14.99.
Also available is the 20th Anniversary remastered release of the classic side-scrolling adventure game Another World. Also known as Out of This World, Another World originally released in 1991 and paved the way for similar adventure games like Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey and Heart of Darkness. Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition is available now for $7.99.
Baseball is also back on the Xbox, as the R.B.I. Baseball franchise makes its return. It’s obviously not MLB 14: The Show quality, but R.B.I. Baseball 14 is now available for $19.99. Although the gameplay footage shown on Xbox Live looks rather weak, at least it’s something, right?

I played a demo of Contrast on the PS3 and actually didn’t want to stop playing. Everything about that game is amazing.
It’s definitely visually stimulating, but I still have yet to play it. I know one of our contributors (Kayla) loved it.
Yeah it is a game I never played before and got sucked in, I definitely wanted to play more.
