I’d like to make a special shout out to Shahed Chowdhuri of OnekSoft Games who created and cultivated an environment for Xbox One Indie Devs to come together, mingle, and share knowledge and stories. He’s an exceptionally friendly and awesome guy!

Ska Studios does not yet have anything to announce for Xbox One and probably won’t for some time but we’re considering all possibilities from totally new IP to possibly porting older games. We’re really excited at the prospect of developing for the new console and also very excited to see what our indie dev brethren come up with!
