ID@Xbox Showcases present a myriad of upcoming and current titles from numerous indie developers self-publishing through Xbox's ID@Xbox program, with new announcements, gameplay trailers, updates, and more. These events are perfect for fans of more creative indie games, especially those preferring to play their games on an Xbox console.
The ID@Xbox Showcase March 2022 just wrapped up, and contained within was a score of anticipated indie titles, mostly releasing in 2022 or just beyond. Plenty of exciting games were displayed during the show, several of which may end up being some of the best Xbox games around. However, Xbox Game Pass subscribers, in particular, may have their interest peaked, with 12 games shown during the ID@Xbox Showcase heading to the subscription service.
The games presented during the March 2022 ID@Xbox Showcase can head to practically any modern gaming platform on their release, but the show (and its games), are primarily focused on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, and even Xbox Cloud Gaming. Without further ado, here's every announcement and news from the ID@Xbox Showcase.

We saw 12 games coming to Xbox Game Pass day one, eight of which were new announcements, and two surprise launching during the event.

I'm excited about these games:
Crusader Kings III
There are definitely some exciting games here. The first three you mentioned piqued my interest.
I already spent about 2 hours playing Tunic. It's pretty great. I really like that you're putting together the instruction manual as you go and most of the language is in "runes".
