Sony, IndieCade creators partner to bring indie games Home

PlayStation Home to partner with IndieCade creators

PlayStation Home Director Jack Buser announced a new partnership with IndieCade creators -- now called Codename -- today that expands the indie games scene on Sony's virtual world/game platform. Among the first indie devs on the service are The Odd Gentlemen, The Peanut Gallery, and Lazy 8.

You'll remember The Odd Gentlemen from their smash hit pie/time-traveling adventure, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom. The gents have something new and exciting cooked up for home called Dueling Gentlemen. The Peanut Gallery you may have heard of for its 2009 IndieCade Audience Award-winning game, Minor Battle, which is coming Home as its first contribution. Similarly, Lazy 8's popular game, Cogs, also gets a PS Home port under the new partnership.

Codename itself is also developing a game titled Super Awesome Mountain RPG -- however, Buser says the relationship between Home and Codename is more like a publisher and a record label. Codename recruits the talent and Home is the place to find it.

As to other Home developments, Buser said Sony isn't ready to announce any plans for 3D or PlayStation Plus premium services. That doesn't mean Home isn't up for them, but as with anything in his virtual space, Buser says if the fans ask for it, the developers are happy to supply it.

"Our vision of Home as a game platform is becoming a reality," Buser said. Already, they have over 100 games and over 50 virtual spaces for users to visit and the registered user count is up to 14 million.

Buser closed by saying that although Home is constantly evolving and redefining itself as a platform, nothing current will change. Whatever happens with PlayStation Plus or 3D, he's committed to keeping Home free-to-play and accessible to all with a PlayStation Network account.

Look for the new Home games from Codename's label in the coming months.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
