REVIEWS Fantasia: Music Evolved Review
Harmonix's rhythm game based on the Sorceror's Apprentice provided a fun experience of arm-wavy controlling goodness. It also made me want to play Rock Band again.

Natural Doctrine Review
This actually might be "your dad's" Japanese TRPG, and for those with a hankering for it, that can be a very good thing.

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

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.
