Last Winter, a group of XBLIG upstarts banded together to promote their games under a single banner – the Indie Games Winter Uprising. In an effort to share the best and brightest premiering in the marketplace, they clearly saw plenty of financial and social success which has consequently inspired a Summer-based sequel event. It should be obvious by now that we at XBLAFans believe that these indie titles deserve more attention and yet another attempt to bolster interest in the games on this platform is an easily supported act.

That said, the folks running the show on the Summer Uprising homepage are hoping to get a little more community involvement this time around. Developers have already gotten a chance to submit their titles on the group’s Facebook page and public voting for a community favorite will take place in early August (1 — 16) right before the event kicks off (August 22 — 31). Make sure to participate and keep an eye out when the time comes, as a total of eight developer-voted titles will hit the market in the proceedings. Reviews of many of Winter’s titles can be found on our hub page and easily suggest a promising lineup for this next Uprising.
