Updated on
Tales of Kenzera: Zau Review

With June kicking off with many spectacular indie titles to choose from, now is a great time to reflect. There are plenty of fantastic titles available as part of the PlayStation Plus library. Among these titles are indie games, with each adding its own spin on the genre. This is wonderful, as it offers the developers behind the titles the creative freedom to create as they please. In addition, it allows players to enjoy a wide array of experiences across the board. Here are our picks for the 5 Best Indie Games on PlayStation Plus.

5. Rogue Legacy 2

We are starting off our list today of the best indie games on PlayStation Plus with Rogue Legacy 2. If you are a fan of classic RPG systems, as well as a well-fleshed-out world and combat system, this is a great recommendation. One of the core aspects of the game that makes it feel wholly unique is its approach to death. Upon dying, players are once again reborn; however, there is a twist. Players can be reborn as any number of different classes and characters. This means the player will have to adapt to each subsequent run of the game.

This is not only a genius way of introducing variety into the gameplay, but it is also fantastically tied into the game's narrative. In addition to this, the game's world plays as much of a role as the player's actions, which is wonderful to see. This makes Rogue Legacy 2 stand out even among other indie greats. Having this title available as part of PlayStation Plus is wonderful. In short, if you haven't given the game a try, make sure to check this one out.

4. Moonlighter

For players who enjoy the fast-paced yet methodical action action RPGs can offer, this is a title to keep your eye on. One of the first aspects of the game that will immediately jump out at players is its distinct visual style. This style is incorporated wonderfully and couples well with the game's combat style. The game has many features that players have been fond of as well. These features include things such as a New Game Plus mode, as well as other additions to the game.

Players can traverse a colorful and vibrant world while challenging bosses, collecting treasure, and much more.

Along the journey, players will meet a varied cast of characters that each add their own flavor to the game's journey overall. To close, Moonlighter is a fantastic title and one of the best indie games on PlayStation Plus.

3. The Forgotten City

We are switching gears quite a bit with our next entry. Here, we have The Forgotten City. The game has been described as a narrative-focused adventure with time loop mechanics that allow the player to soak in all the small details added by the developers. All of the elements of the game's world are wonderfully created and re-created from their Ancient Roman inspirations. However, it is within the humanity present in the game's characters that this title truly shines. As the player progresses, they will meet characters that will stick with them, both for their stories as well as their actions.

Visually, the game is also stunning from beginning to end. Players can see a faithful recreation of Ancient Roman society and characters. The story for the game is also presented in a nonlinear fashion, allowing the player to put the pieces together for themselves. This ensures that no two players will have the exact same experience, which is marvelous. In closing, if you are searching for one of the best indie games on PlayStation Plus, then The Forgotten City deserves to be on your radar.

2. Carto

Our next entry not only impresses with its visuals, but also its core gameplay loop. Here, we have the puzzle adventure Carto. As players progress throughout the game, they will find landscapes that will memorize them. The narrative for the game is rather simple and follows the player trying to reunite the main character with their family. This makes for a strong cause of action that allows the game's more fantastical elements to shine through. As the player makes their way through the game, they will encounter puzzles that feel all at once challenging and rewarding.

This is uniquely tied into the game's traversal system as well. As players figure out more and more about the world around them, it slowly unfolds before them. Along the way, players will meet many characters from many different walks of life. These characters not only shape the player's experience as a whole but also the game's world. All of these aspects are wrapped within a charming indie title that begs to be explored. Simply put, Carto is one of the best indie games on PlayStation Plus.
