Tiny Brains Brings Co-op Puzzle Solving To PlayStation 4
What do you get when you give four creepily cute rodents super powers, throw them in a series of mind-bending puzzles and ask them to start working together to earn their freedom? The developers at Spearhead Games are hoping the answer is a type of controlled chaos that leads to ingenious multiplayer fun. We'll all find out if their hypothesis was correct when Tiny Brains launches on the PlayStation 4.
Spearhead Co-founder Simon Darveau made the official introductions over on the PlayStation Blog, saying that Tiny Brains was the result of a bunch of creators wanting to get back to the root of their craft. The team previously worked on both Assassin's Creed III and Dead Space 3 before forming their own studio at Spearhead.
“We wanted to get out of the AAA world and back to the basics of why we love video games,” Darveau said. “Playing together with friends, finding new ways to interact and challenging your brain.”
In Tiny Brains, players take on the role of four experimental rodents who have been given special abilities including Force, Vortex, Teleport and Create. Each character's ability is needed to solve the game's initial 12 levels (with more unlockable), but the beauty of the game is that there isn't just one correct answer. Darveau said the team has discovered 16 different ways to get through the first level, for instance, so the path to victory may differ depending on the mix of players and how they utilize their powers.
No official release date has been announced yet but, being a PlayStation 4 title, we won't be getting our hands on Tiny Brains until this winter.
