Xbox game releases — August 9th to 15th

By Robbie Andrews,

Whatever happened to August being a slow month for game releases? Even with heavy hitters like Aliens Fireteam Elite, 12 Minutes, and Madden 22 still to come, next week sees a whopping 25 new games heading to the Xbox platform. Top of the pile is unquestionably Hades, Supergiant’s god-tier roguelike that scooped up a bunch of Game of the Year awards when it dropped on PC and Switch last year, which is now just days away from being a brand new member of the Xbox Game Pass family. And if that’s not your jam, there are a bunch of other interesting indies backing it up as well, so there’s sure to be something here for you to chuck on your ever-growing wishlist.

From this page, you can view a game’s achievement list if it’s been released, subscribe to a game for news updates, add them to your wishlist, and even click through to the Microsoft Store to preorder or purchase. Here’s a breakdown of everything coming to the world of Xbox next week. Let us know which of these you’re planning on picking up in the comments!

Untitled Darkness — Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One

Untitled Darkness is a short game that deals with depression.

Depression can leave you powerless, feeling there is no way to escape it. While it has you trapped, it only allows you to see its darkness, hiding any light from you.

In the game, you experience someone’s struggle with depression. You witness how it distorts how they feel about themselves as they struggle to escape it.

A few years ago I released a similar themed game about depression. While it was my 1st game and wasn’t perfect, I was proud of what I had accomplished. Over the years I have gotten better with art, animation, and general game design. Looking back at it, I felt a need to revisit that game with more mature eyes.

This is a retelling of that game.
