To coincide with the European launch of the Indie Games category, Retro City Rampage will be available at half price.

The same offer will be extended to North American customers, who can also take advantage of a 40% discount on Papo & Yo.

Meanwhile, North American PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download a free copy of Zombie Tycoon 2 for a limited time.

Speaking about his experiences as an independent developer, Retro City Rampage creator Brian Provinciano said: "Being an indie developer gives you the freedom to bring your own vision to life.

"Never during the project did I analyse the market or search out what others might want. I was building the game that I wanted to make, without any boardroom or publisher to decide otherwise.

"One of the greatest benefits, it was also a risk. Would others connect to my own personal nostalgia? Well, with well over 200,000 players and counting, it's incredible to see so many have!"

Retro City Rampage is an "over-the-top open-world crime game that combines everything you loved in classic games". It shares similarities with Grand Theft Auto, and features '80s coin-op-inspired stealth platforming, adventure and rhythm gameplay.

It boasts a full story containing more than 50 missions, as well as an Arcade mode featuring more than 30 score-based challenges and instant replays.

Retro City Rampage was nominated for a prize at the 2011 Independent Games Festival.
