As part of the PlayStation Plus Extra subscription, many PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 titles are waiting for you to download at no additional cost. In these last days of the year, here are 5 game ideas to share alone or with the whole family.
Chicory: A Colorful Tale | PS4, PS5
Developed by the team of Greg Lobanov and published by Finji in June 2021, Chicory: A Colorful Tale is a isometric 2D puzzle adventure game to the “pencils and paint” visual style. The hero, a dog equipped with a magic brush, must find Chicorée, the artist he adores and to whom the brush belongs. Not only has Chcorea disappeared, but also all the colors of the province, the aptly named “Piquenique”. A bit like a “Metroidvania”, where the game areas are unlocked as and when, upgrade brush to gradually access the whole of this world to meet its many inhabitants and carry out your investigation. At the same time, customize the protagonist’s outfit and the furniture of your “home” in the style that suits you, and always in the artistic direction specific to this essential nugget. Solo or local co-op, recolor the setting and the characters shaking their heads over the pieces of the soundtrack. Picnic and Chicory need you.
The Son – A Wild West Tale | ps4
Tactical action game in isometric view with Western-spaghetti sauce, here is another originality that has gone under some radars. Developed by Honig and Quantumfrog, “El hijo” tells the story of a 6-year-old child in search of his missing mother, after the family farm comes under sneak attack from a gang of desperadoes. At the risk of his life, the young boy goes on an adventure and will gradually overcome his fears to increase his abilities of infiltration and discretion, essential despite his young age to carry out his mission. The goal: to escape the enemies while playing tricks on them, against a backdrop of landscapes from the Conquest of the American West. On the road to the fearless toddler armed with his toys, puzzles to solve and other children to free will only make your mother more proud when you find her.
Little Big Workshop | PS4
Created by Mirage Game Studios, this simulation game immerses you in the heart of the world of toys. Not only is your role to lead one authentic factorybut the latter is in miniature. No mini-responsibility for all that, the role of manager to dream mini-factory involves a maximum of work, such as the organization of mini-production stations, the management of mini-human resources, mini-purchases and of course mini-upkeep and mini-maintenance. Finally, pay attention of course to your mini-sales, or you risk putting the mini-key under the mini-door. Or on the contrary to know the phenomenal mini-growth that you deserve, and which will allow you to improve your entire mini-structure, on your way to the mini-summits.
Tetris Effect: Connected | PS4
Born from the original idea that a certain Alekseï Pajitnov had, according to legend, during a game of a Russian board game called “Pentomino”, this umpteenth iteration of the four-block video game puzzle reminds us again and again why Tetris is one of the franchises, which has become a genre in its own right, that has generated the most iterations, clones and derivatives since its first release in 1989. Developed by Enhance Games, this version of the base game includes a fashion multiplayer and cross-play, enhanced by high-quality visual and sound art direction. Over 30 levels to play with up to 8 players online. Depending on the mode chosen from the 10 available, the maximum number of spectators will be 5 in connected mode and 6 in 1v1 mode. A timeless item to share between generations alongside and in the same way, for example as a good game of checkers or chess.
NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 | PS4
Fun to conclude, with basketball players with big heads, literally. From Saber Interactive studios, this traditional spin-off around the NBA will bring the source of satisfaction specific to any self-respecting stress reliever. Being where you expect it, this second part respects its own recipe, which simplifies the handling and the rules of basketball thanks to its offbeat tone, its positioning towards a more “arcade” gameplay and the choice of environment of “playgrounds” specific to street sports. Locally or online with four players, share short sessions of madness by composing your team among a roster full of legends of the past and present. On the sidelines of the matches, three-point basket contests and other good surprises are part of the lot. To your delirium!
