Three trailers for PS4 indie titles that caught my attention yesterday

So, yesterday afternoon I published a post about a trio of trailers for Xbox One indie titles that caught my attention at E3 2014.

Not wanting to play favorites, I thought I should publish a similar post about a few of the awesome-looking PS4 indie titles that were shown during Sony's early-evening press conference at the same event.

Here they are:

The trailer above is for ABZU, a captivating title that's being made by Giant Squid, the development studio opened by former Journey art director, Matt Nava.

I do wish this trailer gave viewers a better idea of how the final product will play. Even in its current state, though, I'm curious about it and will keep an eye on it (despite the fact that I don't own, and may never own, a PS4).

This second trailer, above, is for a game called Entwined. Sadly, it offers up even less gameplay than ABZU's trailer.

PS4 owners won't have to wait months or years to discover how this Pixelopus-made title plays, though, as it's already available for purchase on the PlayStation Store for $9.99. (Apparently it'll be made available to PS3 and Vita owners down the line, too.)

Finally, there's the trailer for No Man's Sky, above. This one's all about "exploration and survival in an infinite procedurally generated universe," according to developer Hello Games.

The question is: will the gameplay be able to live up to the hype created by this trailer? I certainly hope it will, although I've got to admit I'm a bit skeptical.

How about all of you? Did any of these PS4 indie titles trip your trigger yesterday? If so, which ones--and why?

Bought Entwined straight away.
The game has atmosphere down. But as usual I only had 20m before I had to go back to the corporal world :/

Ah, I look forward to hearing more of your thoughts on this at a later date, Franggio!

No Man's Sky looks really great. If it will be a good game too (or simply something to enjoy) I guess I have to buy a PS4.

I sadly can't see myself buying a PS4 just to play these games, but I still find them interesting. Should some of PS4's retail games appeal to me, though, watch out wallet :)

The first two trailers are gone. They don't play anymore. No Man's Sky, though, looks FANTASTIC! Have you seen the trailer for Chariot? It's coming to WiiU or 3DS...can't recall which. It looks super fun!

Ah, thanks for letting me know, Justin. I'll go search for replacements. And, no, I've never even heard of Chariot. Off to the YouTubes!
