The PS Vita's indie revival (that is, the indie games are giving new life to Sony's handheld) continues with Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark. It's a Vita version of the popular 2D stealth platform game Stealth Bastard Deluxe - it seems the title got cleaned up a little on its way to PlayStation formats. Stealth Inc is the complete game that's already on Windows, Mac, Linux and Android, and this is actually not just a PS Vita release but a PS3 one too. It's available as a "cross-buy" game, so if you buy on one format you get the other, and there's also "cross-save" support so you can continue your progress on either device. Those picking up the game before August 7th will get "The Teleporter Chambers" DLC for free, while the full game costs £7.99 and the PlayStation editions have been picking up a lot of praise this past week.

You might remember Shadowrun from the early days of the Xbox 360, and then you might wonder why someone would want to run a Kickstarter campaign to bring that back. Except, that wasn't the first Shadowrun. In fact, "Shadowrun" is a tabletop RPG and it led to SNES and Mega Drive turn-based strategy games based on the lore. Well, Microsoft licenced the franchise, re-wrote the history and made a not-particularly-well-liked first-perosn shooter out of it. Last year Jordan Weisman, one of the creators of the original RPG, took to Kickstarter to launch a new 3D isometric turn-based strategy game based on the series, an idea that proved very popular with the campaign exceeding its funding targets over four times over. Now that game has been finished and released, and it's available for purchase on Steam for £14.99, playable on Windows and Mac. A Linux version is being worked on.

Teleglitch is another well-regarded indie game getting a new outing. Originally arriving at the end of last year, publisher Paradox Interactive have picked it up and given it an extra spruce of paint in the Die More Edition. The rougelike shooter still has the pixel graphics look, but the AI has been upgraded, there's additional levels, items and weapons, and more background lore elements too. This new edition is only available on Steam, but it is available on Windows, Mac and Linux for £8.99.

While Pikmin 3 will be grabbing the attention of many Wii U owners this weekend, if you want a retro fix on your console then Kirby's Dream Land 3 is a good bet. The SNES entry in the previously Game Boy-oriented series may not be quite up with the Super Star pack, but it might still be worth £5.49 of your attention. On the 3DS it's also the Virtual Console getting the attention with Street Gangs, a beat-'em-up with RPG elements from the NES back in 1989. It's the game that partly inspired recent cross-platform indie hit Retro City Rampage (along with GTA), and it's available on the 3DS eShop for £4.49, complete with local multiplayer that includes Download Play support.

Lastly there's some new downloadable content worth your attention this week; "El Diablo's Domain" offers a set of new challenges for the excellent action-platformer Guacamelee!. 17 of them, in fact, as well as new costumes for our protagonists for £3.99 from the PlayStation Store, with the content compatible with both the PS3 and the PS Vita like the game itself.
