It's no secret that this particular author gets a bit sick of seeing the same old indie stuff being chucked onto the PlayStation Store. Every week it seems as though a slew of 2D platformers, puzzlers, and roguelikes are thrown out into the wild with next to no warning, and it all just gets a bit monotonous.

Just when you think that the indie scene is stagnating just a little bit, though, something like Furi comes along and makes you remember why smaller projects can make a real difference. If the game's reveal trailer is anything to go by, this is going to be one slice of madcap action that you should really be keeping an eye on as we hack and slash our way to its 2016 release window.

Featuring character designs from the one and only Takashi Okazaki - the creator of the extremely stylised Afro Samurai - and an electronic soundtrack which boasts the music of the superb Carpenter Brut, this is a project that promises to be an audiovisual extravaganza. Again, just point your peepers at the trailer and pray that the gameplay lives up to the stellar presentation.
