New indie games coming to PlayStation Home

Do you think it’s high time that PlayStation Home got some great indie games? Sony and independent developer Codename agree.

The two companies have announced that they will be working together to bring a slate of games developed by indie houses around the world for distribution in Home. From a Sony press release, here is a list of games which will be released by Codename in the coming months:

  • Dueling Gentlemen, created by Odd Gentleman, players strategize the right moves on a giant stage in Home’s Plaza, to outsmart opponents and win this old-time battle for honor and prestige.
  • Minor Battle, created by Peanut Gallery, winner of the IndieCade 2010 Audience Award, a team-based game where two teams run around a cube of four screens to beat each other in a capture-the-flag style platformer.
  • Super Awesome Mountain RPG, /created by Codename, a blend of tabletop board games and fantasy RPGs, where players ascend a fantastical mountain in Home’s Central Plaza using a custom animated figurine.
  • Cogs in 3D multiplayer, /a multiplayer version of Lazy8’s diabolically clever Steampunk-style game, this gear-based puzzler will also be a dynamic public spectacle in Home’s Central Plaza.

These games certainly sound quirky and interesting, but if any of them can continue the tradition of unique PSN titles like Everyday Shooter and Flow, then this new Codename/Sony partnership may end being a great thing for PS3 gamers.
