March is here and with it comes some top-notch indie games. This week, ScreamRide will finally hit Xbox One as well as the highly anticipated game OlliOlli. If those don't sound like they're up your alley, we have a couple of other indies heading our way this week as well. So head down below to see for more info.
the ride of your life
ScreamRide is from esteemed devs of Roller Coaster Tycoon, Frontier Developments. The game features coaster building just like its spiritual predecessor but takes it even further with the ScreamRider and Demolition Expert modes.
ScreamRider has you taking control of your coasters and riding them as fast as you can to get the best time. Demolition Expert mode is a lot like a third person Angry Birds game. You shoot your pods at buildings trying to get the highest score by getting critical hits on the buildings.
ScreamRide launches this Tuesday for Xbox One.

a black and white affair
White Night is a narrative-driven survival horror game set in the jazz/noir era of the 1930s. After surviving a near-fatal crash in the dead of night, you seek aid in a nearby manor. However, once inside the manor you realize that it isn't the place you thought it was.
White Night uses a light mechanic that adds for an even more mysterious atmosphere. For example, when going through a room you see an entirely black screen until you flash your flashlight around which then allows you to see everything else in the room. The game is also said to be very haunting as it goes back to the roots of survival horror games.
White Night brings light to the darkness March 6.
