US PSN: 'Spring Fever' promo spotlights four 'stand out' indie titles

Guacamelee release kicks off cross-buy-enabled indie game promotion

Sony of America has detailed this year's US PlayStation Network 'Spring Fever' promotion, which will see four "stand out" indie games released this month.


The Spring Fever event highlights a number of games coming to the US PlayStation Store in the coming weeks. This year, it shines the spotlight on four cross-buy-enabled indie games due for release in April.

The first of the PS3/Vita games to arrive is Guacamelee - a "Metroidvania brawler" which hits the US PlayStation Store today for $14.99 (or, at 20 per cent off, $11.99 for PS Plus subs). A Guacamelee trailer is below.

Here's the full Spring Fever release schedule:

  • April 9 - Guacamelee!
    Price: $14.99
    PlayStation Plus Price: 20% off - $11.99

  • April 16 - Dragon Fantasy Book I
    Price: $9.99
    PlayStation Plus Price: 20% off - $7.99

  • April 23 - Thomas Was Alone
    Price: $9.99
    PlayStation Plus Price: 20% off - $7.99

  • April 30 - Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge
    Price: $9.99
    PlayStation Plus Price: FREE as part of the Instant Game Collection

The Cross-buy functionality of the four titles means users need only buy the game for one platform (PS3 or Vita) and will receive a code to download the other version at no additional cost.

Spring Fever begins today and continues through May 6. Sony says that popular video game franchises will also be supported with weekly sales throughout the promotion, offering up to 65 per cent off of games and add-ons for major franchises including the Grand Theft Auto and Resident Evil series.
