At last week’s Gamescom event, Sony announced a brand new selection of independently developed games for their PlayStation platforms.

And to say there are some good things on the horizon, would be some sort of understatement.

Check out the newly announced games below.

Dreamfall Chapters – Red Thread Games

Dreamfall Chapters is the long awaited episodic follow-up to the award-winning and bestselling adventure games The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.

An exciting story-driven episodic adventure for Windows/Mac/Linux and PlayStation 4, Dreamfall Chapters follows three characters on their journeys across two worlds — one a cyberpunk vision of the future, the other a magical fantasy world — as their stories and destinies intertwine.

The first chapter is due to release this Autumn.

Ether One – White Paper Games

Ether One is a first person adventure that deals with the fragility of the human mind.

There are two paths in the world you can choose from. At its core is a story exploration path free from puzzles where you can unfold the story at your own pace.

There is also a deeper, more adventurous path in which you can complete complex puzzles to restore life changing events of the patient’s history in order to help the validation of their life.

The game is already available to buy for Windows PC. The PlayStation 4 release will follow at a date to be determined.

In Space We Brawl – Forge Reply

In Space We Brawl is a galactic twin stick shooter for up to 4 players.

It’s a local multiplayer game of skill, fun and competition. Find the spaceship that fits your play style and equip it with your favorite tool of destruction. With over 100 different combinations to master, In Space We Brawl looks to be a fine addition to the sadly small collection of couch co-op out there.

The game is set to be released on PS3 and PS4 on a date yet to be determined.
