REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Sony Pushes Hard For Indie Games On PS4; New Games, New Approval Process Announced

Posted on Tuesday, March 26 @ 10:15:01 Eastern by


Despite the PlayStation 3 having a number of big budget exclusive titles like the Uncharted franchise, one thing that helped the console stand out was the support for Indie developers, which resulted in games such as the award-winning Journey and The Unfinished Swan. Not only is Sony following suit with supporting Indie developers on the PS4, they are continuing to expand their efforts in the Indie space.

In addition to an accessible SDK and the PlayStation Pub Fund, Sony has removed the approval process, allowing developers to self-publish their games.

Already, this has garnered interest from developers, leading to the announcement of Zombie Studios' Blacklight: Retribution and Lukewarm Media's Primal Carnage: Genesis for the PS4. The two titles will join Jonathan Blow's The Witness among the first self-published titles on the PS4.

The hilarious Divekick and a new puzzle game called Metrico, were also announced for PlayStation platforms as part of this new initiative. Metrico will be a PS Vita exclusive.

All of these titles will be added to a strong Indie line-up Sony already has on the horizon, which includes the following titles:
  • Sportsfriends
  • Guacamelee!
  • Dragon Fantasy Book Two
  • Ibb & Obb
  • Hotline Miami
  • Luftrausers
  • Velocity Ultra
  • Thomas Was Alone
  • Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge

Look for GameRevolution previews of some of these select titles later this week as part of our ongoing GDC coverage.
