Also, is there a bigger version of the first picture listing all the games? I noticed TorqueL, but can't make out if there are other logos that haven't been formally announced.

Creator: Miracle Positive Co., Ltd.

Game Website: https://www.facebook.com/airshipq

Description:
Airship Q is a sandbox action RPG, where players solve mysteries by controlling an airship in the open sky as a character who has been transformed into a cat. Airship Q is one of the first Japanese sandbox action games delivered by an independent game developer.

Rain falls, water flows, plants grow, and land changes ?
While everything is rapidly changing, the character quickly runs, jumps, controls an airship, digs, builds, fights, and dies. All actions the character takes will create a unique world you could never have imagined.

Probably. I also see a lot of logos that I can't read/recognize on the first pic. DengekiOnline has such tiny images! :/

A remake of an old game, an artsy puzzle game, shoot-em ups and a 2D platformer.

It's like a snippet of the entire indie scene.

I know right. the system has been out for like 3 WHOLE months. i mean the system has been out for so long that developers should have had AAA games ready to go by now.

La Mulana on the Vita will be awesome, hopefully it sells well so then maybe 2 will come out on it later on.

I wish the list had higher quality indies though, most of these look like filler.

I'm starting to think for every 10 indie games announced, people think 1 non-indie that was announced is suddenly gone. People don't realize that Sony has already announced more retail 2014 exclusives than the competition.

Anyways, I'm disappointed in the lack of 3D indie platformers and games within the fighting game genre. AAA developers seem to be scared to use some of the unexplored fighting game gameplay mechanics from Bushido Blade, Bleach: Dark Souls, Urbans Reigns Tom & Jerry War of the Whiskers, etc. Sequels to SF, Tekken, KOF, and so on is cool and all, but there's so much potential to make the genre more popular if developers looked beyond the tradition fighting game.
