Publisher 505 Games has announced that Spearhead Games’ highly-anticipated co-op indie puzzler Tiny Brains is now available for download in North America on the PlayStation® Network for PlayStation®4 for $19.99. The game will soon be available for PlayStation®4 in European territories and on Steam for Windows PC and PlayStation®3 for all territories this winter.Tiny Brains is the brainchild of Spearhead Games, an independent studio of AAA veterans based out of Montreal. A next generation party game, Tiny Brains redefines “co-op” by challenging players to work together as one as one of four tiny (but super-powered!) lab animals. Thrown into a gauntlet of physics puzzles, the four “Tiny Brains” must combine their unique abilities to make it through a mad scientist’s trick-ridden maze. Featuring a story mode, dozens of time-based and endless challenges, and a few surprises like the competitive “Tiny Soccer” mode, Tiny Brains is the most superhero fun you can have on a miniature scale.
Designed with local co-op as a gold standard, Tiny Brains also features online multiplayer and drop-in/drop-out play for groups tinier than four. Players can swap in between characters to utilize their different powers and levels change dynamically based on how many people are playing. Unique to the PlayStation®4 system, Tiny Brains makes use of the DualShock 4 light bar so that each controller shines the same color as the player’s character. Using the touch pad, players can also bring down a colored arrow to indicate where they require a furry friend’s help.
Tiny Brains will be 10% off for PlayStation® Plus members through December and free for the PlayStation®3 when you buy the PlayStation®4 version through a cross-buy promotion. PC gamers can preorder Tiny Brains on Steam for 30% off before December 18.
