First Xbox One ID@Xbox games revealed
Nutjitsu and Worms Battlegrounds.
NinjaBee's 'Nutjitsu' and Team17's 'Worms Battlegrounds' will be among the first ID@Xbox titles released.
If you didn't know, ID@Xbox is Microsoft's initiative to enable developers to self-publish games on the Xbox One.
Well, two developers have revealed their indie games that will be among the first ones to be released on the console: Nutjitsu by NinjaBee, and Worms Battlegrounds by Team17 (which also will be released on PS4).
We haven't heard much about which games will be released as a part of the program, but in a tweet last night Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer responded to a follower question about the possibility of Kickstarter projects on Xbox One with detail on what we can expect.
"I think you will with @ID_Xbox," he said. "Played 2 of the first shipping games, a Worms game n Nutjitsu, right before DICE."
Nutjitsu is a free-to-play Windows 8 puzzle game from Ninja Bee, the studio behind A World of Keflings.
So, it looks like indie games will start to arrive to the XB1. Other developers greenlit for self-publishing include Double Fine, Slightly Mad Studios and Vlambeer.
Team 17 has confirmed to Eurogamer its plan to self-publish Worms Battlegrounds on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
All we have at this stage is a logo. But Team 17 promised a makeover for next-gen consoles. Additionally, Worms Battlegrounds will be one of the first titles to be self-published on the Xbox One under the ID@Xbox program.
It's due out at some point in 2014.

Our thanks to 'Gauss' for this news item!
oh, whoopee, another crappy worms game (as they have all been since the first couple) and something that looks like a cellphone pac-man clone.
Anyone who wants to add me feel free to do so
