Versus Evil, an indie publisher, has teamed up with several indie studios to bring their games to the PlayStation 4 in early 2015.
Those games are Armikrog, The Banner Saga, Toren and Kyn – indie games that have all received various amounts of praise. Here’s a brief description on each of the games.
From the original game creators of Earthworm Jim and the Neverhood, comes a point and click adventure stop-motion clay animation video game. Supported by a quirky but quite mesmerizing original soundtrack from Terry Taylor, Armikrog will throw you into a rich, colorful world packed with lovable oddball characters and a lot of toilet humor.
The Banner Saga
With several awards already under its belt and a second chapter already in the works, this indie hit is making its way to PS4. If you like turn based strategy games or Vikings (or both) and appreciate stunning, old-school style 2D animation, this is definitely worth checking out. It’s a classic and one that has made a mark in video game history already.
It’s hard to imagine that two guys from Holland put this tactical RPG together in just two years, by themselves! But they did, and it’s a big world of magic, colliding with Viking themes and hours upon hours of adventuring.
From fledgling Brazilian indie studio Swordtales comes a dark fantasy adventure in which you have to guide a lonely child as she climbs the tower known as Toren. It’s a beautiful game with puzzles and treacherous enemies to defeat. Your inner “protective instincts” will certainly be played on as you help Moonchild survive the journey from baby to adolescent.
Each of the games are set for an early 2015 release, and again emphasise the growing significance of the indie scene.
