Dyad ultra-colorful indie game hits PlayStation Network on July 17

If you fancy yourself a gamer, you're likely dying of boredom as we trudge through the all-too-familiar summer release drought. Most big-time developers and publishers like to slow it down a bit during the summer months, which used to mean that there were almost no notable releases between April and August. Thankfully, these days we have a robust indie gaming scene, and with many triple-A publishers avoiding summer altogether, it gives games like Dyad a chance to truly shine.

Today, creator Shawn McGrath announced that Dyad will be arriving on the PlayStation Network on July 17, which is just over a week away. Dyad looks to be reminiscent of games like Rez or Audosurf (with maybe a little bit of Child of Eden thrown in), and comes complete with support for 1080p resolution while running at 60 FPS. Check out the launch trailer for Dyad below.

So, if you're in the mood for a captivating game that puts an emphasis on stimulating your senses, Dyad might be the game you're looking for. At $14.99, it's a bit on the expensive side for a downloadable console title, but as long as McGrath can deliver the goods, it should be relatively easy to justify the cost.
