Spearhead Games, an independent development studio, and 505 Games have announced a partnership to digitally release co-op puzzler Tiny Brains on the PlayStation 4 system this November. In addition to Sony’s next-generation console, the four-person action puzzle videogame will release simultaneously on PlayStation Network and Windows PC via digital download.
“Our partnership with Spearhead reflects the cornerstone of 505’s support of indie studios to let developers run with their vision while we help them bring the game to market,” said Ian Howe, president, 505 Games. “We know we have something special with Tiny Brains and the incredible talent at Spearhead, and we are excited to be part of the project.”
Tiny Brains follows the adventures of four super-powered lab animals as they attempt to escape a mad scientist’s nefarious experiments. Thrown into a gauntlet of physics-based puzzles, the four “Tiny Brains” must figure out how to combine their unique, individual powers to make it through a trick-ridden maze. Each puzzle features multiple solutions depending on how players choose to work together. With local and online drop-in/drop-out multiplayer, a full co-operative campaign and additional Challenge and competitive modes, Tiny Brains is a social, next-generation multiplayer title.
“Creating Tiny Brains has been our passion for the past year,” said Simon Darveau, Spearhead Games co-founder and previous design director on Assassin’s Creed III. “My co-founders and I left our jobs to create this type of game, something that big studios would never take a risk on. Partnering with a team like 505, who believes in indies, means that we can stay focused on bringing our vision to life without obstacles or distractions.”
Tiny Brains will launch in North America on 15th November 2013, and the European launch is expected to follow shortly thereafter, in time for the PlayStation 4’s European launch.
