GDC08: XNA Creators Club game launcher now available for free download

For a limited time, XNA Creators Club is going to be available for free for all to see and take pleasure in.

*Xbox 360 HDD Required* Download the XNA Creators Club Game Launcher in order to play the special preview selection of game demos created by the community using XNA Game Studio. When your download is complete, go to the Games Library, select My Games, and navigate to the XNA Creators Club category along the top. From there, press Y to view, download, and play the available trial games for this limited period.

After downloading the XNA Game launcher, via Unscripted360, these 7 games will be available for download and play.

JellyCar – Created by Walaber from the United States, this game is about driving a squishy car through squishy worlds, trying to reach the exit.

Little Gamers – This is a 2-D high definition action side-scroller based on the famous Web comic “Little Gamers” created by Loïc Dansart, a 24-year-old software developer from Belgium.

Dishwasher – An intense 2-D action platform game created by James Silva from the United States, “Dishwasher” has a unique, highly stylized look and fast and fluid action.

TriLinea – This puzzle game created by Edison S. Prata Jr., Renato Pelizzari da Silva and Davi da Silva Prata from Brazil mixes fast-paced action with strategy.

RocketBall – Created by Tyler Wanlass, Patrick Murty and Todd Barrons of the United States, this neighborhood game of dodgeball explodes onto the street with fast-paced multiplayer action.

ProximityHD – This game, created by Brian Cable from the United States, takes the essence of strategy games — battles for control of territory and armies — and distills it down to a simple, easy-to-understand set of rules for casual players.

Culture – Created by independent game development company Hidden Path Entertainment from the United States, “Culture” contains challenging games and puzzles based on beautiful flowers.

If you still have questions about this, check out this FAQ over on the XNA Creators club forums for all you’ll need to know. As for the possible “portable Xbox”, XNA game tools will sometime in the near future support game development on Zune. What does that mean? We’ll see if Microsoft will elaborate a little bit more.
