For a long while, Sony had positioned itself as the home of indie titles. And next month, PlayStation owners are set to receive some really good ones on both PS5 and PS4.
Over on the PlayStation Blog, Sony specifically dedicated a post to the upcoming indie titles coming to PS5 and PS4 in September. Temtem and Tunic are the highlights, of course, but there are a few other games to keep your eye on.
Developed by Crema, Temtem is a creature-collection adventure game. If you watched the tips and tricks video from earlier, then you’ll immediately notice the similarities to Pokemon. You explore an island known as the Airborne Archipelago, find and tame adorable creatures and battle other tamers. Temtem will be available on September 6 for PS5 and PS4.
Also arriving on September 6 is The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition. The original The Tomorrow Children was first released back in 2016 but was shut down a year later by Sony. Now the game is back as the Phoenix Edition and gone are the microtransactions. The game is a unique blend of exploration, resource gathering and town-building. The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition improves on the original release with an offline single-player mode, new islands, more exploration tools, landscape-transforming monoliths and other surprises.
Launching on September 15 is Wayward Strand a charming dialogue-driven adventure about a teenage journalist who sets off to report on the airborne medical center. As you spend time on this floating ship, you’ll meet interesting patients and learn how their lives connect, diverge and intertwine. There’s so much to see and explore in Wayward Strand that spending too much time on one story will mean you will miss out on another. The choices you make could unlock or bar you from experiencing specific content. In that sense, Wayward Strand is meant to be replayable.
Another gem coming to PS5 and PS4 is Tunic. The critically acclaimed action-adventure launches on September 27. In the game, you play as a young anthropomorphic fox and adventure through a vast and beautiful, but sometimes dangerous world.
The final game mentioned in the blog is Post Void, a tribute to old-school shooters. Lots of bullets, lots of gore and lots of killing. This is a true retro-styled FPS and its set to arrive on PS5 and PS4 on September 29.
