PlayStation Plus members can vote for free March game

PlayStation Plus Vote to Play

In the spirit of all the voting going on in the States, Sony is giving PlayStation Plus subscribers a chance to voice their opinion on the issues that really matter. Namely, which video games they want for free in March.

Vote to Play is back with three choices, and subscribers can cast their votes through the PlayStation 4. The choices for next month are:

Action Henk!

Publisher Curve Digital and developer RageSquid have put together a light-hearted racer where you run, jump, and — yes — butt-slide your way through a host of toy room environments with past-their-prime action figures.

It’s a game where timing and momentum are key as you attempt to outdo your opponents as well as your own past performance. How can you not love a game with the tagline “Butt-slide to victory?”

Assault Android Cactus

While the mechanics of this twin stick shooter will be familiar to many, developer Witch Beam has created a unique battery mechanic (in lieu of lives), providing a fresh experience that helps Assault Android Cactus stand out from the crowd.

This one also supports Shareplay, a “virtual couch” that lets a friend join your game for up to an hour at a time, creating an online local co-op experience. According to designer Sanatana Mishra, the goal with Assault Android Cactus was to make a game that he and the rest of the team wanted to play.

Broforce

While we didn’t know it at the time, Broforce is the game that we always wanted as we cheered beloved 80’s-era action heroes on to victory. Publisher Devolver and developer Free Lives have teamed up to deliver part irreverent spoof and part loving homage to what are now classic movies and classic games.

With its online co-op experience and over-the-top presentation, there’s a really great game here that deserves the heaps of praise it’s already received.

I vote for… well, that’s a secret.Let’s just say Assault Android Cactus has a Super PAC, and it doesn’t seem like it can possibly lose.

You can cast your vote from Feb. 9 until Feb. 22, and Sony will tally up the results afterwards. We’ll find out which game won when the March Instant Game Collection choices are announced.
