A quartet of new game trailers were released recently, giving gamers a look at some upcoming PlayStation titles including Unmechanical: Extended Edition, #killallzombies, BigFest and The Last Tinker.
Sony looks to be continuing its trend of bringing smaller, unique titles to home and portable consoles, giving gamers loads of bite-sized adventures to dive into between those big AAA romps. Some complain that modern consoles are offering “too many” of these smaller and indie games, but that's just crazy talk in my book. Getting a dozen indie games isn't taking away time or resources from those massive shooters people seem to love so much. Fewer small games won't make the new Halo get here any sooner. Complaining about this many smaller games is nothing but griping about a good thing, in my book, so I say bring em on.
And that's exactly what's happening over in the PlayStation camp, as we'll kick things off with Unmechanical: Extended Edition, which is making a beeline for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Vita.
Coming from Grip Games, this hopped-up version of Talawa Games and Teotl Studios' PC puzzle platformer includes all of the award-winning content of the original, as well as well as all sorts of new puzzles and story chunks for the PlayStation audience.
Slated for a release “later this year,” Unmechanical: Extended Edition will also be a cross-buy title.
Next up is #killallzombies, a dual-stick shooter with a laser-guided focus on fulfilling its namesake, mowing down countless hordes of the undead.
Set to arrive on the PS4 before any other platform, you'll be running around a world absolutely overflowing with zombies, with up to 1,000 enemies potentially on the screen at one time. You'll unleash crazy weapons, loads of power-ups, and literally paint the town red as you try to earn the best score possible. You can read more about this newly announced game over on the PlayStation Blog.
Third in our whirlwind tour of new content is BigFest, a game that puts you in charge of creating the most epic music festival on the PS4 and PS3.
It was already announced during E3 that BigFest would be coming to the Vita, but now we've got word that the game will be making its way to Sony's home consoles, too. It's a free-to-play game, so look forward to managing resources, signing the best bands and laying out the perfect park in order to accommodate as many attendees as possible.
Finally, there's The Last Tinker: City of Colors, an action/adventure game that finally has a release date of Aug. 19. Looking one part Ratchet and Clank and one part LittleBigPlanet, The Last Tinker harkens back to a genre that doesn't see a lot of love these days, full of running, jumping, climbing, swinging and using your colorful abilities to unite a world on the bring of crumbling.
