Is this the creators club thing? Like, you have to pay to be able to partake in these festivities?

Everyone can go online now and play these demos, they are all up on the Marketplace "for free".

Nope. Just download the game launcher and you can download them.

EDIT: Beaten by a Ninja named Manager...twice! It was in his original post too!

free for 17 days.

Jelly car is kind of cool, not something people would pay for. I like the sound effects, and the physics reminds me a lot of locoroco.

Where is it on Marketplace?

Go to all games and it should be the last one in the list.
Commented on 2008-02-20 23:13:53
Nice :)

Wow that jellycar is a bit of a copycat of that superb PC motocross game but at the same time its the only arcade game I'd totally buy if it were made available. It actually makes use of the hardware on offer with the funny physics!

edit: found XNA launcher on marketplace under new arrivals -> games -> scroll down to 24th entry. If MS actually made these XNA demos freely available like this as standard it would be a fabulous thing. The general public is completely oblivious to XNA, as they should be, but MS isnt making good use of it PR wise.

Yeah, I just read someone else playing it on PC.
Commented on 2008-02-21 00:14:35
Oh yeah Elasto Mania which was formerly called Action Supercross :D

Oh great my 360 just had to give me the darn RROD the 20th, and now I could have tested these games out, I'm really liking the way the Dishwasher looks. guess I'll have to borrow my bro's 360 till I get my new one back, my 360 is a launch system so I was kinda expecting it to break down rather soon anyway..just not right now.
Oh and keep up releasing these awesome quality videos they're the best on the net

The Dishwasher is one fantastic game, brilliant effort by the creator!
Commented on 2008-02-21 01:11:56
"Free"

Nice.

ok theirs definitly a few dgood ones so far, dishwasher has style and looks wicked i hope he does a few chapters at least.....

culture isn't my style but the designer had some wicked design skills

rocketballs got good graphics but kinda silly game but still silly works my brother would play it for sure if they have xbl multiplayer it would be wicked.

and by far the only one that really suprised me was jellycar its so silly and simple i love it it made me crack up laughing at the sound effects, the concept of growing and shrinking the car is wicked, if he can build on it and make like underpasses and stuff to duck under and shrink and then stuff like that i'd love to see where it goes.
Commented on 2008-02-21 01:57:15
i see their time limited though will they be uncapping them or is that the choice of the developer? cause some of these games i can see being featured ones that people will really like longterm like dishwasher
Commented on 2008-02-21 02:10:45
i tell you what, i would pay atleast 40 bucks for Dishwasher. That game is awesome. Like the other person said, i like Jelly car too, just wouldnt pay for it(but id cop if someone gave me the points to cop it.lol). I like little gamers too.

AND it has a ton of combos, loads of levels and Co-Op locally and over XBL, this game is gonna be amazing!
Commented on 2008-02-21 02:58:59
dishwasher is by far the best out of the bunch. very good game, i dont know if i'd buy it (yet to buy any of the overpriced crap on XBLA yet) but it is very well made.
Commented on 2008-02-21 03:13:20
Not bad, it's like playing games on Newgrounds.com
Commented on 2008-02-21 22:59:51
We've only been waiting since 2005 :D

Damn you J Allard! Always aluding to the future!

Glad to see its finally, properly, on the marketplace though.
