Microsoft’s ID@Xbox Game Fest returns for its fourth successive year.

With a focus on the theme of ‘Gaming for Everyone’, the festival is showcasing 31 titles. Among the lineup are some of our favourite games, including Night in the Woods, Firewatch, and Where the Bees Make Honey.
The festival runs until May 27, and in its last week the ID@Xbox Super Sale will promote some more titles along with a selection of discounts on the Xbox One Digital Games Store.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
