If you're not familiar with Nicalis, it's a game developer and publisher that focuses on smaller projects. Games in its portfolio include Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, and Redout, among plenty of others. Yesterday, the company announced a trio of its games will be making their way to PS4 next year, and you can see a snippet of each of them in the video above.
The End Is Nigh is a tough 2D platformer from Ed McMillen, the creator of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac. It's the end of the world, and you play as a black blob named Ash who's journeying through the ruins to find a friend.
Next up is Dungreed, a procedurally generated dungeon crawler. It looks like a fairly typical rogue-lite action game, with random levels and item drops, slash and dodge combat, and pixelated graphics.
Finally, the trailer shows Crystal Crisis, which looks like a lot like Puzzle Fighter. Gameplay revolves around a match-three style puzzle board, but clearing blocks will initiate attacks with lots of guest characters from other Nicalis titles. This is the only game with a full release date: 23rd April 2019.
