Sony expands PS4, PS Vita indie game lineup with N++, Murasaki Baby

Indie titles are given their due in Cologne

Sony is expanding the list of indie games it's bringing to PS4 and PS Vita, the company announced at Gamescom in Germany today.

This includes PS4 indie games like the exclusive N++, the sequel to the flash-based platform game, and Wasteland Kings from Ridiculous Fishing developer Vlambeer.

PS4 and PS Vita will share indie games like Rogue Legacy, Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Volume, Guns of Icarus and Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

Murasaki Baby should peak the interest of indie game fans who liked Limbo, Braid and The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom. It's a hand-drawn 2D platform title exclusive to PS Vita.
