One of the developers Zeboyd Games will release RPG Cosmic Star Heroine on Xbox One, as the firm confirmed to Eurogamer.

The first game to be released through the program will be Energy Hook from Happion Labs. The game was successful on Kickstarter back in June and will release on Xbox One and PC in early 2014.

Vlambeer, which is one of the developers on the list above, said it’s considering brining Nuclear Throne to Xbox One.

Chris Charla, director of ID@Xbox said that dev kits have been shipped to more than 50 studios and this is just the start.

“We want to make Xbox One a great platform for developers of all scales and sizes for years to come,” he wrote on Xbox Wire.

“We’ve been amazed at the response from developers to ID@Xbox, and we really appreciate their patience as we ramp up the program.

“Best of all, the list above is far from comprehensive. It’s just a first selection of the hugely diverse complement of developers who are working on bringing games to Xbox One via ID@Xbox beginning early next year.

We’re working closely with developers to bring a wide selection of innovative titles to Xbox One and look forward to sharing more soon.”
