Montreal Developer Spearhead Games Teases Next Project

spearhead gamesSpearhead Games, the Montreal-based indie developer who brought co-op gamers the quirky puzzler Tiny Brains, has revealed the studio’s next project: a competitive physics-based video game for PC and consoles. Expanding the studio’s “always playtesting” philosophy, Spearhead Games will open the entire development process up to the community for feedback through the studio’s weekly Twitch shows airing Thursdays at 7 p.m. Eastern. To make the new project even more of a challenge, the slightly masochistic but mostly lovable co-founders, Malik Boukhira, Simon Darveau and Atul Mehra, have decided to build the game in three months.

“What we accomplished last year was insane,” said Simon Darveau, co-founder at Spearhead Games. “We built a studio and a game in one year. I went from sleeping on Malik’s couch to building an awesome couch co-op game, and in the process we learned way more than we could have imagined.”

He continued, “Taking our experimental findings from Tiny Brains, we decided we want to give the community even more influence in building this new game. Everything will be open. Everything will be tested. Everything will be up for comment. This is the future of video games as we see it. Why not start the future now?”


Spearhead will reveal more about its upcoming title tomorrow, Thursday, March 6 at 7 p.m. Eastern during its weekly Twitch show at twitch.tv/spearheadgames. Tune in for updates on Spearhead’s communal development process – your ideas could rename the game, or even help to create the next character!
