Adrift, Videoball and Ghostbusters come to the PlayStation Store this week.
It’s a good line-up for budding explorers on the PlayStation Store this week, with games that take us from the gloomy depths of the ocean to the inky darkness of space.
Adrift may be a title best played in VR but at least the PlayStation 4 version is unlikely to make you hurl.
Another game that explores the mechanics of space exploration – in a maddening but pleasingly realistic fashion – is Kerbal Space Program, which finally comes to the PlayStation 4.
Bringing things back down to earth, and then some, is Song of the Deep, a metroidvania-style action-adventure with a vast ocean landscape to explore.
And finally, a quick word for a game we played last year. Videoball is a fine hybrid of air-hockey and football (rest of the word style) with beautiful, crisp visuals. Highly recommended.
Here’s the full line-up.
PlayStation Store releases for 12th July 2016.

- Daydreamer: Awakened Edition

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
