Even though we’re in the home stretch of waiting for Microsoft’s upcoming Mango update, the company went ahead and delved into gaming specific updates coming in Mango at the Gamescom conference in Cologne, Germany.

  • Avatar Awardables — clothing to dress up your avatar based on game achievements. The first title (of many) to support said feature is “Chickens Can’t Fly” — an odd game in which the player takes the role of a scientist performing experiments on chickens. (PETA’s going to have a field day.)
  • Game Add-ons: Aka — in-game purchases
  • Parental Controls
  • Fast Async

Microsoft also announced 14 new titles set to hit the Marketplace “in the coming months”: Beards & Beaks: Cave Area, Bug Village, Burn the Rope, Chickens Can’t Fly, Collapse!, Gravity Guy, Farm Frenzy 2, Fight Game Rivals, IonballEX, Kinectimals Mobile, Mush, Orbital, TextTwist 2, Toy Soldiers Boot Camp.

Getting excited for Mango yet?
