“Indie Games” category coming to PlayStation Store

The hub spot for all independently-made games.

Sony is launching a new category today for independently-developed games on its North American and European PlayStation Stores.

The “Indie Games” category will house the latest PlayStation indie games in one convenient place, including titles like Journey, The Unfinished Swan, Thomas Was Alone, and Guacamelee!.

In celebration of the launch, the U.S. store is offering to all a 50 percent discount on Retro City Rampage and 40 percent discount on the Papo & Yo soundtrack bundle until May 21. The European store will also offer the Retro City Rampage discount. Additionally, Zombie Tycoon II is free to PlayStation Plus subscribers for a limited time.
