Today Microsoft Studios announced its new Windows 8 initiative, PLAY. As part of the announcement, the company highlighted 15 games that run on Windows 8-compatible devices, such as their new Surface tablet. Billed as “Xbox games on Windows 8,” the collection contains a few fan favorites such as Gunstringer: Dead Man Running, as well classics such as the inescapable Microsoft Solitaire Collection.

You can check out the website here. Also, we’ve alphabetized the list for those who like a sense of order:

  • 4 Elements: Special Edition
  • Adera
  • Gunstringer: Dead Man Running
  • Hydro Thunder Hurricane
  • Ilomilo+
  • Microsoft Solitaire Collection
  • Microsoft Mahjong
  • Microsoft Minesweeper
  • Pinball FX2
  • Reckless Racing Ultimate
  • Rocket Riot 3D
  • Skulls of the Shogun (due to launch at the end of January)
  • Taptiles
  • Toy Soldiers
  • Wordament

The game we’re most interested in out of this bunch has to be Skulls of the Shogun. We spoke to 17 Bit’s Jake Kazdal about it in May of last year, and we’ve been anxiously waiting to get our hands on it ever since.
