Kena is just... so fucking gorgeous.

It's insane. I know we have said the same about some games over the last couple of years... but this time the affirmation reaches new levels of truth: it legit looks like playable CGI movie. This and Ratchet and Clank look incredible.

Oh absolutely, with Ratchet and Clank this gen I was pretty much convinced I was playing a Pixar film (Ironic considering it was the game of the film of the game... as advertised, lol) because it looks and runs amazing, but with the new Ratchet game and now Kena... yeeeaaah, we're finally there, you could make a film using those in game character models and environments and nobody would know any different, absolutely fucking gorgeous, you have no idea how hyped I am for both these games!

I know some of them (if not all of them) will eventually come to other platforms or will directly come to PC too. I'm just saying "PS5 indies" because they were shown at its presentation.

Ok. And I'm also just letting people know they're available on other systems, since I saw there's a lot of interest at least in that title, and you didn't feel the need to mention it. I also brought up Solar Ash, since that seemed like one of the better looking games which you also left out.

...Good for you, I guess... ? Also Solar Ash was already announced in 2019, so I didn't feel the need to put it in the same list as the others.

I didn't know about that. Still, I don't care about... whathever it is you are trying to do here. I'm not about where you can play this games. I just want to give them more attention, because I think they were overshadowed by the big guns. You saw another game on the presentation I didn't mention? Great, put it here. I didn't put every game because not every game caught my attention like the ones on the OP. 

What I don't understand is what is going on about that attitude of yours. It looks like you are trying to reproach me some things that were never the intentions of this thread. Like I if did something wrong.

They dont look indie anymore.
They look like decent budget, proper games.

These arnt small 2D quickly made projects that cost peanuts to make.
I think their more "A or AA" sized games.

Well, to me "indies" don't have to be small or low budget. Just... Independent? 

Although I agree that there ones right here are really something about your average indie game...

Maybe thats just me, I think Indie = cheap 2D spirit sidescroller type games.
Usually horribly hard platformers, so your in a cycle of repreating tries to get through levels.
That way they dont have to make as many levels.

Maybe because you keep contradicting yourself?

"I just want to give them more attention..." Would letting people know they're on other platforms not help give them more attention? The way you've titled this thread can already lead to an easy misunderstanding, and then you compound it by putting this thread in Sony discussion, rather than a general gaming discussion. Is that helping them get more attention?

"I didn't put every game because not every game caught my attention like the ones on the OP." Yeah, that's not what you said the first time. Also, if it's about giving them more attention, why not at least add games others found interesting? Are you saying no one else found Solar Ash interesting?

"You saw another game on the presentation I didn't mention? Great, put it here." Yeah, that's what I did, and you chose to make some asinine comment about it already being announced.

It is true that there are many indie games that match that definition. However, not all of them are like that. You have games like Pillars of Eternity, No Man's Sky, The Witness, Divinity: Original Sin, Superhot, The Stantley Parable, Little Nightmares, INSIDE or What Remains of Edith Finch to name a few.  

Even if we are talking about 2D Sprite sidescroller, you have some of the best in that category in the indie landscape like Shovel Knight, Cuphead, Hollow Knight, Katana Zero...



Kena really blew me away. Not just because of the environmental fidelity (which I didn't expect after seeing the main character model), but the character animations, facial expressions, eye movement and lighting effects combined looked almost like a Disney movie.

And this is the part that really sold me on the world.



So it's gorgeous and has a lot of personality.
It's the game I'm the most interested in out of all the games shown actually.

Pikmin?

I was curious which studio is making this game, and they're actually the ones who made this Majora's Mask video a few years back.


I'm also interested in Stray and Little Devil Inside.
