This category builds on the support that PlayStation has offered independent developers in the effort to highlight some of the most unique gaming experiences on PlayStation platforms.
Most recently, we released four stellar independently developed games during our recent Spring Fever event on the PlayStation Store. We also showcased upcoming PS3 and PS Vita games from indie developers along with highlighting two new games coming to the PS4 during our recent Indie Arcade at GDC.
This new category will house all of our latest indie titles in one convenient place.
Be on the lookout for some of our greatest hits, including surreal puzzle title Unfinished Swan and award-winning PSN exclusive Journey.
You can also find some of our newest indie games such as the colorful Metroidvania-style PSN game Guacamelee! and imaginative platformer Thomas Was Alone, both of which launched to great fanfare during our Spring Fever event.
And these are just a few of our exciting indie titles in this category. To celebrate this launch, we're offering special deals on the following titles:
• Retro City Rampage: 50% discount to all from May 7th to May 21st
• Papo & Yo promotional bundle containing the soundtrack and game: 40% discount (55% for PlayStation Plus subscribers) from May 7th to May 21st
• Zombie Tycoon II: Free for PlayStation Plus subscribers for a limited time
Be sure to check back for new deals on select titles each week. What indie games are you looking to add to your digital catalog?
