Sony looks to focus on growing independent developers

Blacklight: Retribution and Primal Carnage: Genesis coming to PS4; Limbo and Spelunky to current gen

Posted on

Sony Computer Entertainment today introduced several one-of-a-kind titles from its growing independent developer portfolio for all PlayStation platforms, including the newly announced PlayStation 4.

"We've got an incredible team on the ground that talks to developers every day, and these new games we're announcing are a direct result of the team's proactive outreach and focus on working with top independent developers," said Adam Boyes , vice president, publisher and developer relations, SCEA. "Our process and approach in working with developers has evolved to incorporate a lot of flexibility into the process, including the way we pursue and discover new talent, help them with funding solutions and work together to deliver their best games onto PlayStation platforms."

The games unveiled today for PS4 include Zombie Studios' Blacklight: Retribution and Primal Carnage: Genesis from Lukewarm Media. With more than one-million players on PC, the Blacklight franchise will bring a new experience to the PS4 system with a further evolution of the futuristic free-to-play first-person shooter. Primal Carnage: Genesis for PS4 is a story driven, episodic single player adventure that takes place in a world where dinosaurs have been brought back to life.

These games will join Jonathan Blow's exploration-puzzler The Witness, as self-published titles making their console debut on the PS4 system.

For PlayStation Network, Iron Galaxy Studios is bringing its two-button fighting game Divekick to PS3 and PS Vita later this spring. Independent Games Festival Award Winner and randomly-generated cave explorer Spelunky will be available on the PS3 and PS Vita systems with new exclusive features, and for the first time, puzzle platformer Limbo will make its way to handheld platforms with its debut on the PS Vita system later this year.

Announced in February, the next generation PlayStation 4 is set to arrive Holiday 2013.
