Here’s this week’s lineup of PlayStation Store releases for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

This summer’s steady stream of indie gems continues on the PlayStation Store this week with at least four games worth checking out.

First up is Dead Cells, a roguelike-metroidvania par excellence from Motion Twin. The game has already found success on PC (it leaves early access this week ), and also comes to the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.


Also served up this week is co-op cooking sequel Overcooked! 2, Compulsion Games’ macabre survival adventure, We Happy Few, and twisted puzzle platformer, Flipping Death.

And finally, the AAA season also gets its unofficial launch with the release of Madden NFL 19.

Here is the full PlayStation Store release lineup for this week:

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.
