In the coming days there will be puzzle games, 2D platformers, shoot em ups and remakes of classic games. Sony is really pulling the rein on the planned PlayStation 4 indie titles. Today’s BitSummit has yielded multiple announcements in Kyoto.

Based on information shared by Dengeki Online and a NeoGAF post, the company plans to release multiple indie games.

Top of the list was a remake of the 1990’s platformer Assault Suits Leynos/Target Earth. The game will be developed by Dracue Software, the makers of Gunhound. Dracue have also listed the game on their website and uploaded a trailer to YouTube introducing the game for PlayStation 4.

Another game showcased at the summit was One Upon Light. The game was previously known as Dying Light, and will play as a monochromatic puzzle game. Players will need to stay in the dark as the light in the game will be dangerous among all the 20 levels of the game. First trailer of the game has been uploaded, so you can check it out to see how it looks.

Prismatic Solid, a shoot em up game that was originally launched on Xbox Live in 2010 will also be among the upcoming PlayStation 4 indie titles. The game is being developed by YO1 KOMORI. Apart from a couple of screenshots there is nothing new to share, though there is an old trailer you might want to check out.
