As we all know, independent developed games (indie games) have been a large part of the gaming community for some time now. These games have caused some big name developers, such as Sony, to rethink their strategies. And as they said at their PlayStation 4 reveal, they intend to have more indie developers join them, not only on the PlayStation 4 but current PlayStation consoles.
At this years Game Developer’s Conference, the PlayStation Network team hosted a PlayStation Indie Arcade event. Over 25 indie games were presented that are to appear on all of the PlayStation consoles.
Here’s a list of what’s to come:
- Blacklight: Retribution – PS4
- Primal Carnage: Genesis – PS4
- Ibb & Obb – PS3
- Rain – PS3
- Sportsfriends – PS3
- Divekick – PS3 and Vita
- Dragon Fantasy Book II– PS3 and Vita
- Guacamelee! – PS3 and Vita
- Hotline Miami – PS3 and Vita
- Luftrausers – PS3 and Vita
- Spelunky – PS3 and Vita
- Thomas Was Alone – PS3 and Vita
- Friend Network App – Vita
- Limbo – Vita
- Metrico – Vita
- Velocity Ultra – Vita
- A Virus Named Tom – PlayStation Mobile
- Beatdown in Treachery City – PlayStation Mobile
- Crumble – PlayStation Mobile
- Crystallon – PlayStation Mobile
- Don’t Wake the Bear – PlayStation Mobile
- Hermit Crab in Space – PlayStation Mobile
- Oh, Deer! – PlayStation Mobile
- Rymndkapse! – PlayStation Mobile
- Ten By Eight – PlayStation Mobile
By the looks of it, Sony has given full support to the indie department. They also plan to give PlayStation Mobile Unity support later this year to make it easier than ever for developers to bring their games to PlayStation-certified Android devices.
So there you have it. Sony knows where to put a lot of focus now. And to me personally, I hope to see this go even farther.
