First up is Aven Colony, available to download for free from today, June 1, all the way to the end of the month, June 30. “Build a new world and a life for humanity,” reads the description for the game. “It’s your job to develop Aven Colony on the strange new world of Aven Prime.
Aven Colony will let you build drones to help your settlements grow into cities. Though players will have to contend with “strange alien lifeforms” and difficult winters.
what else is there?
Also available from now as part of the backwards compatibility lineup is the classic indie platformer Super Meat Boy. But this one is only available up until June 15, so make sure to get on it now.

Then from the middle of the month, June 16, you’ll be able to download another sim game, Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition, available until July 15. This one is all about building big, majestic skyscrapers. But you’ll have to keep residents and workers happy as you do so.
And lastly is Raskulls, another action adventure platformer, available from June 16 to June 30. Raskulls is a frantic, fast paced platformer that can be played online or via couch co-op. “Save the world and unlock Achievements in the single player Mega Quest spanning three chapters and over 60 levels!”
