Proceeding the Indie PS5 game Soulborn Alpha Trailer, Sony introduced their PlayStation Indies initiative featuring nine captivating new independent games including Worms Rumble (PS5 / PS4), Haven (PS5 / PS4), Carto (PS4), Recompile (PS5), Where the Heart Is (PS4), Maquette (PS5 / PS4), F.I.S.T: Forged in Shadow Torch (PS4), Heavenly Bodies (PS5 / PS4) and Creaks (PS4). đź’™

Check out the PlayStation Indies PS5 / PS4 Montage Video below along with further details from Sony's Head of PlayStation Indies Shuhei Yoshida to quote:

I'm pleased to formally announce the PlayStation Indies initiative. With PlayStation Indies, we hope to spotlight and support the best of the best indie games being published on PlayStation and the entire indie community as a whole. Our goal is to make PlayStation the best place to develop, find, and play great indie games.

The indie community is increasingly important for the future of the video game industry, as AAA game development has grown so financially demanding that big companies are finding it harder to take risks to invest in new concepts that may or may not work.

We trust indie developers with strong vision will continue to bring ideas that have never been tried before, creating whole new genres of games and advancing the art and meaning of video games. PlayStation has always embraced games with completely new concepts, like PaRappa the Rapper, Katamari Damacy, LittleBigPlanet, and Journey, and we look forward to seeing what surprising new ideas will come next!

I was so excited to see the strong reactions to the amazing indie titles featured in the PS5 Future of Gaming event a few weeks ago. Do they not look charming and interesting? I, for one, could not get the Bugsnax song out of my head for a few days since the show went live.

While details are still forthcoming, we are also happy to confirm a new indie title will join the PlayStation Now service every month, starting with Hello Neighbor in July.

Today, alongside news of the PlayStation Indies initiative, we’re happy to debut nine imaginative and exciting titles coming to both PS4 and PS5.
  • Worms Rumble brings real-time multiplayer action to PS4 and PS5
  • Haven is a chill co-op adventure coming to PS4 and PS5
  • Introducing Carto, a charming, innovative puzzle adventure coming to PS4
  • Hacking-themed platformer Recompile is coming to PS5
  • Where the Heart Is: A narrative adventure between truth and fiction, coming winter 2020 to PS4
  • The recursive world simulation & puzzle-making process in Maquette
  • Action platformer F.I.S.T: Forged in Shadow Torch coming to PS4
  • Heavenly Bodies is coming to PS5 and PS4
  • Explore ambiguity in Creaks, coming to PS4 this summer

If only Sony follows xbox method on publishing of indiegames, like activating the console on dev mode it will give more oppurtunities to solo developers

A few of them tickled my fancy, but above all else, the concept is great (as is Nintendo's version). Looking forward to more hidden gems in the future!
