Those raucous indie games are kicking up a fuss again with the launch of the community-run Summer Uprising on Xbox Live Indie Games today. Ten specially-selected titles will be released under the banner over the next fortnight, hopefully bringing renewed attention to the neglected corner of the Xbox garden.

You'll notice that it's a very neat and orderly schedule, thanks to XBLIG's new-found ability to set specific release dates. The Winter Uprising went a bit pear-shaped last year without this feature, so huzzah for the Summer Uprising.

Here's the launch trailer, showing of all the Uprising's members:

      Really been looking forward to playing CTDV. It's been a long time since I played anything Lemmings'ish.
