Sony Adds to its Indie Developer Portfolio
Sony Computer Entertainment America today introduced several titles from its growing independent developer portfolio for all PlayStation platforms, including the newly announced PlayStation 4.
The games unveiled today for PS4 include Zombie Studios’ Blacklight: Retribution and Primal Carnage: Genesis from Lukewarm Media. These games will join Jonathan Blow’s exploration-puzzler, The Witness, as self-published titles making their console debut on the PS4. In addition to supporting Blacklight: Retribution, the PlayStation Pub Fund, which provides back-end financial and marketing support to developers, adds fighting game Divekick and infographic adventure Metrico, which is a PlayStation Vita exclusive.
Independent Games Festival Award Winner and randomly-generated cave explorer Spelunky will be available on the PS3 and PS Vita with new exclusive features, and for the first time, puzzle platformer Limbo will make its way to handheld platforms with its debut on the PS Vita later this year. Additional independent titles coming to PlayStation Network this year include Pub Fund titles Sportsfriends, Guacamelee! and Dragon Fantasy Book Two, as well as additional titles Ibb & Obb, Hotline Miami, Luftrausers, Velocity Ultra, Thomas Was Alone and Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge.
