Resogun was among the top-rated PS4 launch games; we awarded Housemarque’s PS4 debut an 8 in our review.
Indies Housemarque and Compulsion Games have hailed the early success of their PS4 launch titles Resogun and Contrast, giving fellow indies hope that smaller titles can thrive on the new console.The indie duo enjoyed little competition on PS4’s storefront at launch, available for download in amongst some very highly-priced blockbuster games. Resogun and Contrast’s inclusion as free downloads for PlayStation Plus subscribers also ensured that indie games were among the first titles many new PS4 owners played on their new hardware.Only Sony knows the real sales figures for each, but judging by other metrics, Housemarque’s Resogun is getting as much attention as some triple-A games – if not more, says the studio.“We know Resogun has a great retention rate, people keep going back to it,” Housemarque community manager Tommaso De Benetti told us. “Last time we checked, it was on par with much bigger budget games. Also, we have the highest number of community ratings on PSN at the moment – over 18,800 reviews. In comparison, Killzone Shadow Fall has 1,200 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has 1,700. It looks like a lot of people are liking Resogun more than much more hyped games, though of course it is free with PlayStation Plus.”Compulsion Games, which released Contrast for 360 and Steam as well as on PS4, told us that Sony’s platform had been the most successful of the three, thanks again to PlayStation Plus and few competing titles on day one.
