We're a few days into April now, so it's time to look at some of the exciting indie titles this month! It's really difficult to narrow this list down to just 10, but we're going to try our best - with a handful of Xbox Game Pass titles thrown in!

You'll notice we're being slightly loose with our use of the word "indie" here, as Tales of Kenzera: Zau is being published under the EA Originals label, for example. We'd argue the actual developers of these titles fall under the "indie" banner though, hence their inclusion in this list.

We do really encourage you to check out the full selection of indie games for April, as we've missed out plenty of other intriguing examples here... we're keeping an updated list of all the new releases for 2024 elsewhere on Pure Xbox.
