If you recall games like ICO with particular fondness, you'll be excited to try Toren .

The new game from Swordtales and Versus Evil is heading to PlayStation 4 on May 12, and the unveiling over at the PlayStation Blog is well worth seeing.

PlayStation Plus members get 10 percent off the standard price during the first week of the game's availability and you know, I think many might take advantage of that. This is a first-person adventure game staring Moonchild, who must climb the tower (called Toren) on a solitary quest to find a sense of purpose. You start the game as a small child and you must learn how to walk and interact with the world. Moonchild ages as you play and eventually learns new powers and abilities.

There are indeed similarities to past adventure games like ICO ; Swordtales wanted to capture that style of narrative and gameplay in Toren . This should be a fantastic and artistically inspired title!

What? An indie game with production value! Is it opposite land? 😛 no, it looks generally decent, curious even, just hope the narrative/concept doesn't let me down like Limbo & Journey

If you were let down by Limbo and Journey, I can't imagine an indie game satisfying you, honestly.

Limbo was pewp but if Journey couldn't touch your soul then you don't have one sir.

I seen this trailer on my Youtube app about a week ago, on a recommended playlist. I'm very much looking forward to trying this game out

It is also priced cheaply. It will be 9.99 with a plus discount of %10. Not bad considering how great it looks.

Looks good. Female protagonist = purchase.

– SOMEone should be doing an ICO style game since ICO won't.
