Whether you’re looking for a change of pace from all of the massive blockbusters launching this month, or missed these games the first time around, Indie Bonanza month on PlayStation Now has your gaming needs covered. We’re launching 20 new PlayStation 4 indie games into the service today, including beautiful masterpieces like Abzu and thought-provoking adventures like This War of Mine: The Little Ones.
New This Month
From some of the artistic minds behind Journey and Flower (both of which are also available on PS Now) comes Abzu, a beautiful underwater adventure set in a vibrant ocean world full of hundreds of colorful species and ancient secrets hidden in the mysterious depths.
This War of Mine: The Little Ones is a gritty and engaging experience inspired by real-life events. Set in the middle of a war, make unforgiving and emotionally repercussive life-or-death decisions for a group of civilians trying to survive.
Joining Grim Fandango Remastered is the classic Day of the Tentacle Remastered, a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game. Enjoy the unique steampunk cybercrime caper about breaking into buildings, hacking security, and stealing cash in The Swindle. In the side-scrolling shooter The Final Station, survive the threat to humanity by riding the rails, finding fuel, facing infected hordes, and saving other survivors.
Play as Hope, a woman trying to escape a totalitarian state by hacking an elaborate surveillance network and traversing an intricate web of danger and deception in Republique. For something a little more fast paced, try Ziggurat, a colorful dungeon-crawling first person rogue-like RPG shooter. Or become Aragami, a vengeful spirit with the power to control shadows, taking out enemies with supernatural abilities and brutal stealth attacks.
Other unique indie titles new to PS Now this month include The Deer God, Nom Nom Galaxy, Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure, Forestry 2017, Electronic Super Joy, and many more.
