Earlier this year, indie publisher Versus Evil announced that Toren would be coming to the PlayStation 4 in 2015. Today, Versus Evil confirmed that Toren, Kyn, The Banner Saga, and Armikrog would release for the PS4 in early 2015.

Here’s details, videos, and links to the official websites for each of the titles:

Armikrog (Kickstarter Page)

This is just a really weird way to make a game, but it works! From the original game creators of Earthworm Jim and the Neverhood, comes a point and click adventure…wait for it… stop motion clay animation video game (Try and say that 10 times quickly!).

Supported by a quirky but quite mesmerizing original soundtrack from Terry Taylor, Armikrog will throw you into a rich, colorful world packed with lovable oddball characters and a lot of toilet humor.

The Banner Saga (Official Website)

The quality bar has been set! With several awards already under its belt and a second chapter already in the works, this indie hit is making its way to PS4. If you like turn based strategy games or Vikings (or both) and appreciate stunning, old-school style 2D animation, this is definitely worth checking out. It’s a classic and one that has made a mark in video game history already.

Kyn (Official Website)

(Pronounced “Kin”) It’s hard to imagine that two guys from Holland put this tactical RPG together in just two years, by themselves! But they did, and it’s a big world of magic, colliding with Viking themes and hours upon hours of adventuring.

Toren (Official Website)

From fledgling Brazilian indie studio Swordtales comes a dark fantasy adventure in which you have to guide a lonely child as she climbs the tower known as Toren. It’s a beautiful game with puzzles and treacherous enemies to defeat. Your inner “protective instincts” will certainly be played on as you help Moonchild survive the journey from baby to adolescent.

When asked about the potential for PlayStation Vita releases, Georgina Verdon of Versus Evil said, “No Vita just yet, but never say ‘never’.”

Which of the four games are you most excited for?
