Sony has announced its August PlayStation Plus line-up, and it's once again a healthy mix of indie and big-budget games, with a few new day-one new releases sprinkled in for good measure. The full line-up, via the PlayStation Blog, follows:

Road Not Taken (PS4)
From the creators of Triple Town, Road Not Taken is a roguelike puzzle game about surviving life’s surprises. You play as a ranger adventuring through a vast, unforgiving forest in the aftermath of a brutal winter storm, rescuing children who have lost their way. Randomly generated levels deliver a limitless supply of possibilities to explore and challenges to overcome. Your actions will influence not only your own story, but that of the villagers you hope to befriend and the town you call home.

Fez (PS4, PS3, PS Vita)
Gomez is a 2D creature living in a 2D world. Or is he? When the existence of a mysterious 3rd dimension is revealed to him, Gomez is sent out on a journey that will take him to the very end of time and space. Use your ability to navigate 3D structures from 4 distinct classic 2D perspectives. Explore a serene and beautiful open-ended world full of secrets, puzzles and hidden treasures. Unearth the mysteries of the past and discover the truth about reality and perception. Change your perspective and look at the world in a different way.

Crysis 3 (PS3)
Crytek’s highly-acclaimed sandbox gameplay shooter is back.
Seven Wonders of the Urban Rainforest – New York City has been contained in a giant nanodome and grown into a unique rainforest with seven distinct environments. Master the ultimate sandbox and turn it into your own personal hunting ground.
Assess, Adapt, and Attack – Crysis’s highly-acclaimed sandbox gameplay is back with more open levels to let players choose their path and approach. Your upgraded Nanosuit allows brute force or stealth, always giving you more than one option.
The Biggest and Most Explosive Arsenal in Franchise History – In addition to giving you an arsenal of human firearms, Crysis 3 lets you scavenge alien weapons and deploy an all-new Predator bow.

Proteus (PS3, PS Vita)
Proteus is a game about exploration and immersion in a dream-like island world where the soundtrack to your play is created by your surroundings. The primary means of interaction is simply your presence in the world and how you observe it.

Metrico (PS Vita)
Metrico is a new world. A living world filled with infographics that react directly to your movement, actions and input. Metrico invites you to explore, experiment, test your skills and most of all: think outside the box.
Immerse yourself in this experience, exclusive to PlayStation Vita system, and see if you have got what it takes!

Dragon’s Crown (PS Vita, PS3)
Dragon’s Crown is a multiplayer hack and slash beat ‘em up game with breathtaking visual style, a design built around cooperative play and epic boss fights, and the ability to discover a new adventure in every play session. Dragon’s Crown allows up to four players to team up online to clear out monster-ridden dungeons, discover precious treasure, and destroy awe-inspiring bosses.

      Looks good. I wanted to play Dragon's Crown, but it was always kind of high priced for an impulse buy Vita game. Kind of hyped to try Vita Proteus. With Rogue Legacy, the Vita is getting some good shit this summer.

        I bought Dragon's Crown when it was new and $60. I wanted a Final Fight-ish brawler and it didn't disappoint, but the game forces you to replay the same levels over and over again to get certain items to complete missions.

        I think we're within 3 months of getting Knack and maybe 6 months of Killzone. Dave-A was in town a few weeks ago and we played some Towerfall and it was pretty great.
