So this is more of a heads up hoping to push other retailers to reduce their prices and/or list the game (which I hope happens). I quite like the concept and I am an indie fan, I personally think it is a lovely looking game. PC gamers, this is currently £5.45 on Steam sale. Also, digital fans you can get it for £11.99 on PSN too. Coolshop takes money on despatch and is currently £4 cheaper than RRP of £19.99.



Vostok Inc. is a casual game for a hardcore audience and a hardcore game for a casual audience. The premise is that you're a corrupt, narcissistic yuppie, out to make as much money as possible. Think the Wolf of Wall Street…in Space.

It's a twin stick shooter for the modern age, an age where audiences are limited by time and want to be able to play when they want, how they want, and on whatever devices they want. Want to play on console whilst sitting on the sofa? Sure. Fancy a quick game on handheld whilst on the bus? Go ahead. Want the game to reward you whilst it's playing itself, on your mobile whilst at work? Don't let us stop you!

The introduction of an idle clicker metagame into an already brilliant and satisfying second-to-second experience adds a whole extra dimension to the genre. Not to mention it makes the game more addictive than crack once you get going.
Of course no Nosebleed Interactive game would be complete without the extra bells and whistles, so as well as an adaptive audio system (which you can remix to your heart's content) we've also got 13 minigames (including an FPS), Tamagotchi style virtual pets (or in our case, a Virtual Executives), and a massive suite of ship and weapon upgrades to unlock and mess about with.

Features:

  • Explore more than 40 planets over 6 solar systems.
  • To increase profits land on any planet and begin extracting resources from it.
  • Craft and upgrade an arsenal of 40+ diverse weapons and ship augmentations.
  • Collect loot from fallen enemies, bosses or environmental hazards.
  • Find and recruit managers, consultants and executives scattered throughout the galaxy and keep them happy to boost planetside production.
  • Adaptive audio system means the music is constantly evolving as you play.

I love how the PS4 gets so many physical releases for these "indie" games, they can work out pricier but it's nicer to have them on disc imo.

Yeah, that is what I am doing currently. There are god knows, a huge amount of indie titles on PS4 that many of us have never heard of...

That list just confuses me on what's indie and what's not.
I wish those Zero Escape games would come down in price tho, loved them on DS/3DS.

This may help to clarify the situation although I am not sure how valid this could be, lol.

Keep an eye on limitedrungames.com/

Most of my PS4 collection is smaller games, possibly not "indie" tho. I'll drop a list sometime. Recently pre-ordered Rad Rodgers, which looks good.

Thanks I will have a look. I wish they did more mainstreams runs. I read about some decent game releases but sadly most of them are dlc.

Anyone who likes to collect physically indie type ps4 and ps4vita games should check out limited run there based in America but specialize in bringing digital only games ie (wonderboy and night trap are personal faves) to physical for collectors.

Cool looking little title. I'm new to the ps4 scene and i've just started to dip my toe into the world of indie titles on the system and there are sooooo many!

Thanks for the heads up mix i'll watch other retailers as i'm sure base will have it around the £14 mark pretty quickly (educated guess well, semi educated)

The guy who made this is a good friend of mine. Please support it by buying the game!

It helps that it's genuinely good :), but you'll also be supporting a hard working indie developer!
