Microsoft Studios not only has high-end games it publishes, but also casual games like its ever-popular Solitare Collection, and also games like Bingo, Minesweeper and more. Now the casual games division wants to make an all-new game, and it has five concepts that will be voted on by the public.
The five game concepts are:
- Chess - Microsoft Chess is back and better than ever! Play against the computer, against a friend, or use the matchmaker to find someone to play in a rated or casual game. You can have multiple games going at the same time and there are new Daily Challenges every day to exercise your brain.
- Bubble - Do you enjoy shooting bubbles upward and bouncing them off walls to try to make a match of 3 or more so they all pop and fall down? Classic bubble shooter games have been around for years and if you like this style of game, you will love Microsoft Bubble. With multiple game modes, powerups and daily challenges, you can try to pop past your friends or just relax and see how far you can get on your own!
- Casino - Take a gamble and let it ride in Microsoft Casino. A common bankroll across multiple games- including Video Poker, Blackjack, Slots, Craps, and Roulette. The most beautiful Casino title, optimized for Windows 10! Play for free and collect good luck charms to up your odds of winning!
- Hearts - Microsoft Hearts has been a staple in Windows for many years, and it's coming back! With single player, multiplayer and Daily Challenges, this game is sure to capture the hearts of everyone from the first time player to the true master.
- Word - With several word games, multiplayer tournament modes, and new Daily Challenges every day, Microsoft Ultimate Word Games is the best collection of word games you'll find.
The public has until December 17 to vote on their top three game concepts out of this group of five. They can also sign up to be a Microsoft Casual Games Inner Circle Member, which will allow them to get early access to new game features and help the team with input on their future game projects.
