spearhead gamesIndependent Montreal game studio Spearhead Games and game publisher 505 Games have announced a partnership to digitally release co-op puzzler Tiny Brains on the PlayStation®4, timed to the platform’s North American launch this November 15. In addition to Sony’s next generation console, the four-person action puzzle game 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-op campaign and additional Challenge and competitive modes, Tiny Brains is a truly 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.”
