Every couple of weeks we deliver a list of our favorite (mostly) new Xbox Live Indie games to officials involved with the Xbox 360. We pick our favorite indie games; they list them in a corner of the Xbox Live Games Marketplace called Kotaku's Favorites (it's in the Indie channel).
They don't give us any room to explain our picks, so we're doing that here. Use this to aid your Xbox Live Indie game browsing. Most of these games cost just 80 Microsoft points. That's $1.
The Red Ring of Death (80 MS Points): Pilot your tank-like "Binary Utility Device" on a tour of the motherboard and prevent the most ghastly of meltdowns—the Red Ring of Death—in this side-scrolling platformer full of subtle hints about the Xbox 360's notorious hardware failure.
