Microsoft is celebrating indie games this month. The company has announced new promotion that aims to highlight the "breadth of amazing content" found in the ID@Xbox indie games program.

Every week in May, Microsoft will spotlight some "very special games," which will include new releases. There will be a theme for every week, as well as discounts on the featured games.

The ID@Xbox Game Fest, as it's being called, starts this week with the theme "Discover." Highlighted games include The Park, Beyond Eyes, and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime.

Looking ahead, the schedule for subsequent weeks will include:

"Since the days of the original Xbox, I have been a huge fan of independent games that bring us incredibly creative and unique experiences you just cannot find anywhere else," Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg said in a statement. "The innovation of great games coming from developers in the ID@Xbox program is incredible."
