    This is something people have asked for, for few years now during E3.
    It's a really nice way to do it, but that's a whole lotta demos!
    This and their event should be a huge PR win as long as they don't crap it up.

    Looks like some of those indie games are from the spot light last week

    Haven looks pretty. I need something to fill that Rime itch again.

    Thanks @BRiT I decided to find more details on these to see which ones I wanted to download so I found YouTube videos for almost every game & put them in a playlist.

    Check the playlist here.


    Here are some videos for games that were tagged for children & are not allowed to be added to playlists. :/





    Here are some games that I couldn't find any videos on, but had a web site or Twitter:


    I couldn't find anything on Back to Belt.

    I will update this post when TA reveals more games.

    EDIT 7/20/2020: Updated for 6th list of demos

    I'll have to check it out, as I quite enjoyed Rime and it's art. I loaded it up today to go back for that one last achievement (one breath) before it leaves GamePass.

    There was a game from a few E3s ago that I commented in a thread that I liked what was shown of the game and it's art-style but never managed to go back and see what ever happened to it.

    I hope the XBox Game-Fest Hub has something similar to the GamePass Play-Later list. This GameFest Demo Hub should have a Watch Trailers selection, where if you hit "A" during the trailer it adds the demo to your install queue, along with a section of what you marked. That's probably a lot of work for something like this, but I think it would be suitable for future showcases. They could even re-use it on all their Weekly Sales.

    Nice, looks like you tied me on a couple of leaderboards now. :)

    BTW, spoiler alert but Haven is not anything like Rime. LOL I'm definitely not playing it now. Just too much for this old guy. LOL

    Would be cool to see the ability to add games to my Play Later List or Wish List while I'm watching their trailer.

    I watched the trailer, and yeah, surprised at the game aspects I wasn't expecting to see in any game. They could have appealed to the entire family, but not with that. :lol:

    I agree. Tunic looks good, but I've heard nothing since 2018.

    I'll probably be doing a massive rewatch of all Sony and Microsoft E3 shows from the past generation (2013 onward) all because I can't recall what small indie game piqued my interest but then lost track of. I can't remember the name at all. It was all of maybe an 8 second clip. It might even be from a different show entirely, like maybe a Summer Game Fest style. I wish there was a universal remember this / wish list functionality. :lol:
