The PS4 And Vita Are Getting A Ridiculous Amount Of Indie Games

n++

In case you haven't heard, Sony is totally gaga for indie game makers, with the sentiment being fairly mutual.

As such, and as part of their big Gamescom presser, Sony revealed a flat out ridiculous numbers of indie games that have their sights on the PlayStation 4 and/or the PlayStation Vita.

The entire rundown can be found over at the PlayStation Blog. Starting with the PS4, you have:

  • Assault Android Cactus (Witch Beam)
  • Fez (Polytron Corporation)
  • Final Horizon (Eiconic Games)
  • Guns of Icarus Online (Muse Games)
  • Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital)
  • N++ (Metanet)
  • Rogue Legacy (Cellar Door Games)
  • Samurai Gunn (Teknopants)
  • Starbound (Chucklefish)
  • Switch Galaxy Ultra (Atomicom)
  • The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (Nicalis)
  • Velocity 2X (FuturLab)
  • Volume (Mike Bithell)
  • Wasteland Kings (Vlambeer)

There are plenty of highlights, like the recently revealed Wasteland Kings, and the follow-up to last year's breakout indie hit, Hotline Miami. Though perhaps most noteworthy of them all is the grand arrival of N++:

Both N+ (alongside Everyday Shooter) helped to set into the motion the modern indie gaming movement that has been effect for the past five or so years, hence why its follow-up is quite momentous.

As for the Vita, you'll find many of the games listed above, as well as even more:

  • Age of Zombies (BlitWorks/Halfbrick)
  • A-Men 2 (Bloober Team)
  • Assault Android Cactus (Witch Beam)
  • Avoid Droid (Infinite State Games)
  • Broken Sword: the Serpent’s Curse (Revolution Software)
  • Eufloria HD (Omni Systems)
  • Fez (Polytron Corporation)
  • Final Horizon (Eiconic Games)
  • Flame Over (Laughing Jackal)
  • Gravity Crash Ultra (Just Add Water)
  • Gunslugs (Abstraction Games)
  • Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital)
  • Joe Danger 1 (Hello Games)
  • Joe Danger 2 (Hello Games)
  • Kick & Fennick (Green Hill Studios)
  • Rogue Legacy (Cellar Door Games)
  • Samurai Gunn (Teknopants)
  • Supermagical (Tama Games)
  • Switch Galaxy Ultra (Atomicom)
  • Table Top Racing (Ripstone)
  • The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (Nicalis)
  • Volume (Mike Bithell)
  • Wasteland Kings (Vlambeer)

It's worth mentioning that some of these titles will also be coming to the PS3. Many will also be console exclusives, either permanently or for a certain amount of time.

Another thing is that the list above is far from complete. For whatever reason, Minecraft is not included. Is it not indie anymore?

Nor is Everybody's Got To The Rapture, by the developers of Dear Esther and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, or Murasaki Baby, the guy behind Shadows of the Damned and Moon, both of which Polygon caught wind of.

You also have all the indie games that were announced prior to Gamescom, like 17-Bit's GALAK-Z. In recent weeks, both Microsoft and Nintendo have both reaffirmed their commitment to the indie scene, but they also have a lot of catching up to do.
