Tunic Hits Xbox Game Pass Today, Future Games Confirmed
Tunic and Paradise Killer join the service today, with several more indie games confirmed for the coming months.
Two amazing games are quietly added to Xbox Game Pass
So, Microsoft, that’s how it will be from now on, isn’t it?
#XboxGame #PassQuietly #AddsTwo
Aside from a handful of hits, Xbox Game Pass had a slow month — until yesterday. In a presentation focused on indie games, Microsoft announced that it will be adding two more games to its Game Pass library: Tunic and Paradise. Even better, they are all already available.
I know, I know…I’m already eating my words. But hey, at least language is a delicious breakfast!
Paradise, developed by Kaizen Game Works, is one of the more unique games in recent years. Part visual novel, part detective, and three part spooky, you’re tasked with solving a set in a sun-drenched pocket universe filled with quirky characters like Lady Love Dies. But the biggest draw is Barry “Epoch” Topping’s irresistibly catchy synthwave soundtrack. As you play, you’ll unlock more music and slowly build up a jukebox menu that lets you switch tunes at any time (all thumps, no thumps). Kaizen Game Works added extra songs to yesterday’s Xbox and PlayStation releases.
Tunic, on the other hand, is an adventure game inspired by The Legend of Zelda that just came out yesterday and has already been hailed as one of the best games of the year. You play as a little fox who comes home empty-handed on a white sand beach. From an isometric perspective, you’ll loot dungeons and take down enemies in a fantasy setting. They’ve done all these things before, and that’s the core quality of Tunic: it completely trusts the player. The menus and characters in the game are written in a runic language with little explanation, so you have to rely on your intuition and internalized knowledge from other similar games. The first half hour of the game, if you’re not already addicted.
But Tunic’s unexpected launch on Game Pass underscores the popular game-on-demand service’s growing strategy. In December, three games – Townscaper, Generation Zero, and Serious Sam 4 – were added to the service from the ground up, battling Microsoft’s years-old format and announcing new content a few weeks before they arrived.
As recently as January (via the Wayback Machine), Tunic publisher Finji insisted that the game would not be on Xbox Game Pass, so it was unclear when the Game Pass deal would be signed. When asked for comment, a Finji representative told Kotaku that the company does not discuss business relationships with the media.
Well, nothing evil at all happened – quite the opposite. You couldn’t buy Tunic until yesterday, long after it went on sale
