PlayStation Indies program formed to better support indie gaming

The PlayStation Indies program has been announced by Sony today, designed to better support indie gaming.

“With PlayStation Indies, we hope to spotlight and support the best of the best indie games being published on PlayStation and the entire indie community as a whole,” Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “Our goal is to make PlayStation the best place to develop, find, and play great indie games.”

The inititative today shone the spotlight on nine indie games: Worms Rumble, Haven, Carto, Recompile, Where the Heart Is, Maquette, F.I.S.T: Forged in Shadow, Heavenly Bodies and Creaks. Of that list, Haven has already been confirmed as a title to offer up a playable demo on Xbox One as part of a Summer Game Fest demo event.

Yoshida also confirmed that an indie game will be highlighted on the PlayStation Now service each month — in July, that’s Hello Neighbour.
