All The Upcoming Games From PlayStation Talents’ The Moment

We love indie games over here at Unpause and that’s why we’re big supporters of PlayStation Talents. Launched in 2015 by Sony Interactive, the PlayStation Talents program is set up to support the local Spanish game dev industry. We can only hope that this initiative will be pushed over to Southeast Asia!

Last Friday PlayStation Talents hosted their own online event called ‘The Moment’. During the Livestream, we got a fresh look at the trailers and gameplay of some of the games currently in development under the PlayStation Talents initiative. If you’re interested you can watch all of ‘The Moment’ at this link.

In the meantime, this is a roundup of all the exciting games that are coming up this year and the next! For games that are already out, we’ll round it up in a different article.
