Tales of Kenzera: Zau has been developed by Surgent Studios and is inspired by both Bantu Tales and studio founder Abubakar Salim’s experience of grief.

Indeed, Salim (best known for his voice acting work on Assassin’s Creed: Origins) told Eurogamer the Metroidvania genre is the perfect vehicle for an exploration of grief.

“You can’t plan when it happens, it just throws you into this new world that you have no idea about,” he said. “No matter what you prepare for, the books you read, the people you talk to, it is very, very personal. And it’s something that just comes at you when you don’t know what to do.

“However, it provides you with the tools that are going to essentially aid you to get over it. You are going to feel sad, you’re going to feel angry. Some days you might even forget about it. The tools are there, but you have to discover them as you go on this journey. And to me that’s exactly what a Metroidvania is.”

A demo for Tales of Kenzera: Zau was released as part of Steam Next Fest and impressed with its emotive storytelling. The game is set for release across PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC on 23rd April.

Dave the Diver, meanwhile, was released last year on Switch and PC. It will make its PlayStation debut on 16th April, joining the PS Plus game catalogue too.

It received strong praise, described as “a dizzying game of many parts” in our Dave the Diver review.

While Sony still won’t be putting its first party games on its subscription service day one, some indie games have. Tales of Kenzera: Zau and Dave the Diver follow the likes of last year’s Sea of Stars, as well as Stray and Tchia.
