As you all undoubtedly know, Sony has a pretty damn good thing goin' with indie developers right now. Pretty much every indie game, even the big ones like Jonathan Blow's The Witness, wants to get a piece of the PlayStation pie, and if Gamescom 2013 is anything to go by, pretty much all of them are getting the chance. Earlier today during Gamescom, Sony made a huge slew of "*insert indie game* is coming to *insert PlayStation platform*" announcements.

Among the highlights are Rogue Legacy, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, n++, Volume, Guns of Icarus Online, Wasteland Kings, and FEZ, but even a list that long only begins to scratch the surface of the indie games coming to PlayStation platforms. The full list is much bigger.

Several of these games will even be coming to PlayStation 3.

Assault Android Cactus, a multiplayer sci-fi twin stick shooter from developer Witch Beam is coming to both PS Vita and PlayStation 4. Phil Fish's atmospherically relaxing platformer Fez, which lets players view a 3D world from different 2D perspectives, will be making its way to PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Guns of Icarus Online, a team-based airship combat game set in a steampunk world, will be releasing on PlayStation 4. As we previously reported, the sequel to last year's surreal top-down shooter Hotline Miami, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, will be coming to PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 next year.

n++, the next installment in the n franchise, a series of platforming action games, will release this winter on PlayStation 4.

Samurai Gunn, a tactical 2D multiplayer action game involving both melee and ranged combat, will arrive on both PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Starbound, a space adventure through procedurally generation planet landscapes, will be landing on PlayStation 4.
