Sierra has announced that it will be publishing Rock Pocket's puzzle game Shiftlings, an outer-space adventure featuring two characters, a shared air hose, and the least-appealing way of inflating their spacesuits.

The game takes place on a reality show, where contestants have to work their way through obstacles to win prizes. To further complicate things, players are tethered to a partner with an air hose. They'll need to cooperate to slide blocks, hit switches, and all the puzzle stuff you've probably seen before. As the trailer shows, there is a bit of a twist. The two characters have to alternate between normal and inflated versions of their suits to provide bounce pads for their partner, float on air vents, and more. How do they do that? Farts.

Shiftlings is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this spring.
