XBL Indie party/multiplayer games

#1 Posted by Undead_Fiend (65 posts) -

So I saw a feature on joystiq about a game "Hidden in plain sight" http://www.joystiq.com/2011/12/02/the-joystiq-indie-pitch-hidden-in-plain-sight/, it's actually great fun for just 80 points, reminded me a lot of the assassins creed multiplayer trying to blend in with the crowd and covertly killing NPC's or various other game types. It is only a local multiplayer game and I have other people to play with me (who aren't all gamers, but the game is simple enough for them to play). I then started to try and find other multiplayer/party games, and there is no such genre for finding them. searching online hasn't resulted in much other than B.U.T.T.O.N which we didn't like so much, too much make your own fun kind of thing.

My question: are there any Indie (or even arcade) games people can recommend that multiple people can play together on one console?
