I love the art and design of these new PS5 games from PlayStation Showcase

The PlayStation Showcase came and went and many felt a little disappointed; no The Last of Us multiplayer, Uncharted 5 was missing and many first-party Sony studios were absent. But, I fell in love with many of the indies shown. These games revealed some eye-catching art direction, stylish presentation and elegant design.

You can read my PS5 review to find out why I love the console, or catch up on my PSVR 2 review for why this new hardware is a revelation. But it takes inventive and beautifully designed games to make this tech tick, so below I pick some of the outstanding new titles from last night's PlayStation Showcase (see my PlayStation Showcase live blog for all the announcements, as they happened).
