XBLIG is an indie games platform on Microsoft's Xbox Live Marketplace for the Xbox 360. It is unknown just how or why XBLIG first came into being, though archaeologists speculate it was created anywhere from May 2008 to 2000 BC.
As of 2012, over 2,250 games have been released on the service. The number of good ones can be counted on the fingers of one mangled hand.
XBLIG was first featured in a Demo Friend video on November 7th, 2011. Since then, the latest and greatest XBLIG are frequently showcased by Demo Friend.
