Microsoft is officially launching its Xbox Live Creators Program which allows developers to publish their games directly to Xbox One and Windows 10.
Nine games are available right now in a section called "Creators collection" in the Xbox Store.
This is the latest push by Microsoft to increase indie development for the Xbox and Windows 10 platforms beyond the current [email protected] program.
For starters, the certification process for Creators has been drastically simplified and requires no prior approval for concept.
However, that also means that games in the Creators collection may not be to the same standard as titles that are created under [email protected]
Like Early Access games on Steam, developers will be able to release unfinished games for player feedback.
