The lights are on
Tiny Brains attracted some positive buzz coming out of this
year's E3, and now we know exactly where (and approximately when) we'll get to
play it. Tiny Brains will hit as a launch title on the PS4, and releases at the
same time on Xbox Live Arcade and Steam/PC.
Tiny Brains is a four-player cooperative puzzler in which
players each control a modified rodent in a scientific lab. Each of the unique
characters has its own special power that can be used to help solve puzzles,
and the whimsical aesthetic offers up plenty of cute to go with the challenging
navigation and brainteasers.
For players who are eager to check out the new downloadable
game, Spearhead is bringing Tiny Brains to this year's PAX Prime, at booth
6305, where gamers can play the rodent-infested title for themselves.
The indie options on
PS4 continue to stack up, indicating that the new system should be a hotbed for
creative games from smaller teams. Spearhead is formed from a group of
developers from big titles at EA, Ubisoft, and Eidos, so here's hoping their
first indie venture gets some added momentum by being a launch title on the new
Sony console, as well as on the well established XBLA and Steam platforms .
