Another PlayStation Indies Day was held by Sony on the PlayStation Blog, where seven new updates for various indie games that will be released on the PS4 and PS5 in the coming months were announced. I’m curious to know which smaller games should be avoided. Here are the seven reveals from today, all in one place.
Starry Sea on the way to PS4 and PS5
First, the retro-styled role-playing game Sea of Stars will be released on PS4 and PS5. Along with that affirmation, the game’s creator Sabotage Studio provided a detailed look at the turn-based combat system in Sea of Stars. Despite having clear JRPG influences, Sea of Stars is a “pure” turn-based game without time limits and lacks random encounter battles. With the help of certain damage types, it is possible to break enemy special ability “locks” and weaken or even completely eliminate their special abilities. MP regenerates throughout battles to enable normal magic casting. Party members can work together to attack in combos, and you can quickly switch characters in and out of battle to reorganize your team for the best performance.
PlayStation Consoles Will Get Schim
Schim, a recently revealed game about a wandering shadow, will be released on PS4 and PS5, according to developer Extra Nice. As the shadow creature Schim, you’ll have to look around various Dutch-inspired locales in search of the person whose shadow you live in. Since Schim can only move to other shadows, every location presents a challenge. Schim must therefore carefully move from one dark spot to another across a map.
This August, Cult of the Lamb will debut
On August 11, the PS4 and PS5 versions of the roguelike Cult of the Lamb, which features anthropomorphic animals who practice religious zealotry, will be available. The title of the game is accurate in describing how cute and bizarre it is, and the PS Blog entry by the game’s creator, Massive Monster, is devoted to… poop. As your cult den must be kept clean to prevent followers from becoming ill and dying, it appears that managing poop is an important aspect of the game. Fortunately, poop can be collected and applied to crops as fertilizer.
Coming to the PS4 in October is Signal
On October 27, the PS4 will receive Signalis, a retro sci-fi game modeled after the PS1. This “psychological sci-fi survival horror” has top-down cameras, close-up puzzle segments, a sizable inventory with spinning item models, and visuals reminiscent of the early Resident Evil and Silent Hill games. As Elster, you’ll have to navigate a re-education and mining facility that appears to be deserted and is full of warped figures.
This September marks the release of The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition.
The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition will debut on September 6, according to Q-Games. This 2016 PS4 game’s re-release offers not only a fresh take on an old favorite, but also a ton of brand-new features.
The world of The Void gains a large number of new islands with the Phoenix Edition, and Monolith structures across already-existing islands reveal fresh routes and hidden passages. A grappling hook has been added to allow movement through these new areas. The Tomorrow Children’s removal of all reliance on outside servers ensures that it can’t be lost, which is the most significant aspect of the editions. This indicates that other characters can be controlled by “Comrade AI” when playing the game offline.
Releases of Cursed to Golf in August
Cursed to Golf will launch on August 18 for the PS4 and PS5, according to a new trailer. You take on the role of a recently passed-away would-be golf champion who must navigate an ever-evolving 18-hole course in an effort to be resurrected in this game set in “golf purgatory.”
Announced for PS4 and PS5 is encryption.
The well-liked eerie deckbuilder, which was initially released on PC last year, is now available on consoles. Although no date has been provided as of yet, encryption has been announced for the PS4 and PS5. The DualShock/DualSense controller will be specifically utilized in the PlayStation version, with RGB lights simulating on-screen lighting and talking card Stoat’s voice being projected from the controller speaker.
