PlayStation Announces 7 New Indie Games Including Hello Neighbor 2 For PS4 and PS5

PlayStation just announced seven brand new indie games over the course of one and a half hour over on the PlayStation Blog. Each game was revealed after five minutes through a separate dedicated blog post that went over the details of the game. These games will be making their way over to PS4, PS5 and even PSVR depending on the title. Let’s go over the highlights.

Moss: Book II

The first game announced today was the sequel to 2018’s Moss. A brilliant VR game that puts you in the perspective of a mouse that solves puzzles to overcome various challenges. This time, Polyarc is putting the emphasis on the “connected world” of Moss in Moss: Book II. Essentially, the blog post talked about how the environments are much bigger and richer this time around with the rooms being interconnected.

Players can go back and experience areas from different angles and explore new sights. World building is getting a major uplift in this game with plants and foliage now being interactable, so when Moss walks through plants, they move and can even be cut by enemy attacks. Moss: Book II is slated to come out this Spring for PlayStation VR, which also indicates that the game is not a PSVR 2 title. Fingers crossed for backwards compatibility.

TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge

The highlight of today’s announcements was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. The game has already been announced for PC and Nintendo Switch but today, we got confirmation that the game will be making its way over to PS4 and PS5 as well. Not only that, but the developer, Tribute Games, also confirmed that Master Splinter will be a playable character in the game.

Shredder’s Revenger is a 2D side-scroller beat ’em up game utilizing a retro pixel art style. The game obviously focuses on the fighting and to make it as satisfying as possible with the smoothest animations and most rewarding combos. The big part of charm in this game is that Master Splinter, a character generally sidelined when it comes to brawling on-screen, is actually front and center here. You can read about the game in detail on its dedicated blog post.

Hello Neighbor 2 and the rest of the titles

The last bit of important announcements from this morning was the bulletin that Hello Neighbor 2 is finally coming to PS4 and PS5. Similar to TMNT: Shredder’s Revenger, the popular horror game has been announced for PC and Xbox already but today it was confirmed for PlayStation as well. Pre-ordering the game allows you to play the beta on April 7 before the game releases officially some time later.

Also announced alongside these three were four other indie games, all equally unique and charming, and deserving of the spotlight. We encourage readers to check out the dedicated blog posts for each of these to learn more about them.

Animal Well

A new pixel art platformer coming from the minds of just one person behind the wheels, this game will incorporate horror elements with classic puzzle-solving to create a unique experience. Animal Well is set to release sometime in early 2023 or late 2022 on the PlayStation 5.

Post Void

Perhaps the most interesting announcement from today, Post Void is like the original DOOM but on psychedelics. Not just any psychedelics either, I’m talking ones that make you think about gruesome violence and epilepsy-induced murder. All you need to do is watch the gameplay trailer and you’ll understand what I’m saying. The game has been out for quite some time for PC and Xbox but will be releasing on PS4 and PS5 this Spring.

Salt and Sacrifice

Another side-scroller, Salt and Sacrifice is a Souls-like action game and the direct sequel to one of the more popular PlayStation indie games in recent memory: Salt and Sanctuary. The game will also comes with much more dynamic PvP content that has been considerably upgraded from what was available on Salt and Sanctuary. Salt and Sacrifice will hit the PlayStation Store on May 10 for both PS5 and PS4.

Samurai Gunn 2

Last but not least, Samurai Gunn 2, as you can tell, is the sequel to the first Samurai Gunn game. Samurai Gunn is a pixel-art style fighting game that includes characters from other notable indie game such as Among Us, Spelunky 2, and Minit. The game is extremely vibrant and chaotic with a lot happening on screen at the same time. There is no release date for the game yet but it was announced for the PlayStation 5.

That’s all for today. Even though this showing wasn’t mind-blowingly crazy, it still gave us a bunch of new games to look forward to. Plus, it came as a complete surprise out of nowhere this morning, and who doesn’t like random game announcements?
