'Tiny Brains' (ALL) Picked Up By 505 Games, Gets Partial Release Date - Screens

Tiny Brains is a 3D co-op action puzzle game in which up to four players can take the role of tiny (but super-powered!) lab animals.

With a whimsical 3D art style, Tiny Brains challenges players to escape a mad scientist’s nefarious puzzles as one of four mysteriously powerful lab rodents. Using each tiny brain’s unique power – Create, Vortex, Teleport and Force – players collaborate to beat intricate levels and escape to freedom.

Tiny Brains is set in a lab where four super-powered animals have to work together to solve puzzles and escape from a mad scientist’s experiment. We chose this theme because now that we are indie devs and have more flexibility, experimentation is what we’re all about in our creative process.

“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.”

“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.”

Tiny Brains will be released simultaneously on PS4, PlayStation Network and PC via digital download.
