Devolver Digital revealed more titles at this year’s E3 as well as announcing that they will be bringing some of their titles to Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita.

The Talos Principle is a new game from Croteam, but it’s not a shooter as you might expect. Instead, it’s a puzzle game with a story by Tom Jubert (FTL, The Swapper) and Jonas Kyratzes (Infinite Ocean) that has players solving over 120 puzzles. It uses the Serious Engine 4, which Croteam says has allowed them to scan real world locations directly into the game. It’s in development for PC, PS4, Mac, and Linux. A release date is TBA.

Devolver will also publish Titan Souls for PC, PS4, and Vita. The game is an indie action title where you explore worlds that are between dimensions, and must fight powerful titans armed with only a single arrow. I’ve heard the developers mention Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus as inspirations, so it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on. Titan Souls will be out sometime next year.

The publisher’s Playstation initiative will also see them releasing Broforce and Not a Hero on PS4 and Vita as well as PC. The sequel to Hotline Miami is in the works for PS3, PS4, Vita, and PC. Specific release dates for all three of these have not been revealed, but if you’re a Playstation or PC gamer these Devolver titles look like they’re going to be great.

Just revealed at the Sony E3 press conference, Devolver Digital announces it has added two new games to its Indie Games Roster of Awesomeness™: Croatian development powerhouse Croteam’s The Talos Principle will launch on PC, PlayStation®4 as well as PC, Mac and Linux. Also revealed at the press conference, Devolver Digital is set to publish Titan Souls from developer Acid Nerve, recipient of the prestigious gold award at the 2013 Ludum Dare game jam. Additionally, included in the lineup of games headed to the Sony console are the indie darlings Broforce (Free Lives) and Not a Hero (Roll7).

 

Shit is about to get real:
The Talos Principle from Croteam is a philosophical puzzler, penned by Tom Jubert (FTL, The Swapper) and Jonas Kyratzes (Infinite Ocean), and tasks players with solving a series of increasingly difficult and complex puzzles – all woven into an overarching metaphysical parable about intelligence and meaning in an inevitably doomed world. Solve more than 120 puzzles through the eyes of an advanced AI construct and unveil your significance at the behest of your creators.

The Talos Principle is built with Croteam’s proprietary Serious Engine 4™, where real world locations and historical elements can be scanned into the game world. See an example of Serious Engine 4 in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6Edwcn469M

Indie action title Titan Souls takes players into a world between worlds, where the Titan Souls reside as the spiritual source and sum of all living things. Scattered about this dimension between dimensions are the remnants of the souls, now shattered into pieces with each piece guarded by one of the titans of legend. On a quest for truth and power, you are armed with but a single arrow and whatever courage you have left to take down the titans hidden amongst the ruins.

The indie favorites Broforce and Not a Hero are set to make their console debut on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita alongside PC. Broforce developer Free Lives is on tap at E3 to showcase all new bros, weapons and the latest developments in the patriotic freedom simulator. Roll7 is also on hand at E3 talking up its proprietary ISO-Slant™ technology (presented in 2¼D) for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC.
