Here’s the rundown of all the games heading to the Xbox One Games Store between 8-12 May, 2017.

There are no big hitters coming to the Xbox One Game Store in the next week, but there’s a promising crop of indie titles to choose from.

Human Fall Flat, the previously PC only physics-based puzzler from No Brakes Games, makes its console debut on Friday. Don’t let its rudimentary looks fool you, the game is a satisfying and open-ended exploratory adventure.

May 12 also sees the release of of Elliot Quest. Ansimuz Games’ platform adventure evokes a number of late ’80s classics, so if you’re a fan of Zelda II or Castlevania II, it could be a worthwhile addition to your library. Other indie releases this week include Demon’s Quest, Butcher, and projectile fighter, Lethal League.

If you’re looking for something a little more more sporty, NBA Playgrounds is an officially licenced – but distinctly arcadey – 2-on-2 basketball game.

Here’s the full Xbox One release lineup:

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.
