The Indie Games Summer Uprising list has been narrowed down from 70+ to just 25 this week. Starting Monday July 11th, developers will have the opportunity to select 8 picks to represent the platform in the Uprising. Voting closes on Sunday July 17th. Developers are to vote on a variety of factors including: Marketability, originality, appearance, entertainment, music, and gameplay. A 5 star rating system will be used, just as XBLIG tittles are rated on Live, and the 8 titles with the highest average score are selected in the promotion. A poll will be e-mailed to all XBLIG developers who have submitted candidates. Winners will be announced the following day, Monday July 18th on the IGSU home page.
The community still has the opportunity to voice their opinion as well! A fan vote will occur during the two week period of August 1st – August 15th on our dedicated Facebook page. Winners will be announced during the #IGSU Twitter chat, on Tuesday August 16th. Fans will be voting on the two (2) titles they would most like to play, all 70+ candidates are still eligibile and these two (2) title will be released on the final two days of the promotion: Thurs Sept 1st and Friday Sept 2nd.

EDIT: Honest mistake – When transferring the list of 25 title which would be in the running, Progenitor was mistakenly missing from the list. In fact, it was one of the 13 titles which we all agreed would be in the Uprising before we even shared our lists. Upon looking back at the lists I realized that I did not transfer it over. For this reason, we’ve simply added it as #26, rather than remove another title from the list. If you look at their work here, I’m sure most would agree that it’s an appropriate move.
