Doom & Destiny

In our ‘Best Xbox games of 2012’ feature, I named the sole Xbox-branded RPG Final Fantasy as one of the year’s finest. This year we have the very RPG-like strategy game Skulls of the Shogun to look forward to, but another Xbox RPG seems unlikely at present. Thankfully an indie developer has come along to fill the void with Doom & Destiny from HeartBit Interactive. Previously available as an Xbox Live Indie Game on 360, Windows Phone gamers can take the game with them on the go…. And for free (at the moment)!

Check out our initial impressions and hands-on video after the break.

Following in the steps of our announcement yesterday from Gamehouse about five new games coming to Xbox Live on WP7, we've found some more gaming news from the world of XLIG (Xbox Live Indie Gaming). After being nominated for awards at Indie Games Uprising, three great Indie game development teams; EversoreITA (Doom & Destiny), iO (KamiCats) and Phoenix Game Studios (T.E.C. 3001); were all interviewed by WP7Connect to get the inside scoop on what might be in the pipe for Windows Phone 7 users, and we aren't disappointed by what we've learned.

Over the next several months, not only will these games be continuing their success as Xbox Live Indie Games, but they'll be bringing that success and fun to WP7 devices as well. Whether you're into racing around the world as a quick-paced robot in T.E.C. 3001, jumping from platform to platform as a catwarrior in KamiCats, or going oldschool with a Zelda-esque game as four young heroes in Doom & Destiny; these three titles are sure to give many of you that special gaming fix that only Indie Games have a way of satisfying.

While there haven't been any specific dates set for when we'll start seeing these titles, all three companies have made statements that they'll be coming to your phones over the next several months. Check out some gameplay videos (from the Xbox360 versions of the games) after the break and keep checking back here for more info on when these games are released. We'll be sure to get you more info and reviews first here as soon as they can be gotten.

Thanks, Carl P. and Matthew M., for the tip! Videos after the break!
