'Tinykin' Reveals More Story, Shows Off Sprawling Environments - Screens & Trailer

Milo has re-discovered Earth! As he lands on the planet, he learns that he's as small as a penny ... and it's the '90s.

Milo has re-discovered Earth! As he lands on the planet, he learns that he's as small as a penny ... and it's the '90s.

Explore a giant house as a tiny astronaut, and meet the society of insects that built a sprawling city inside. Discover the stadium in the bath, revive the nightclub inside the couch, and win big at the casino under the bed.

Milo can jump, hover, skate and grind, but the true hook is the mysterious tinykin — hundreds of alien creatures with special powers to become ladders, build bridges, carry large objects, activate machines and explode!

Catch hundreds of tinykin and use their unique powers to bring Milo back to his home planet — and back to normal size!

Interstellar explorer Milo has a little problem. That is, his problem is being little. About an inch high, to be precise. And if that wasn't bad enough, he's stuck in the past (the 90s, if we're being specific), and the local insect population have gone and discovered religion. He's not sure if that last one is a problem yet, but it's certainly weird.

Welcome to the strange and wonderful world of Tinykin, from publisher tinyBuild and developers Splashteam. Join co-directors Romain Claude and Marie Marquet on a whirlwind tour of its massive miniature environments.

Inspired by genre classics like Pikmin and Paper Mario, as well as 90s Saturday morning cartoons, Tinykin is a game about exploration first and foremost. Each room of the house that Milo finds himself trapped in is an enormous explorable space, with its own cultures, civilizations and problems to solve.

Aided by a swarm of mysterious but helpful creatures named Tinykin, Milo employs their strength to move massive objects, build ladders to climb, and blast open new paths when subtlety fails to open new doors. Not that Milo is slacking off; he's a platforming prodigy, able to cross huge gaps with his bubble-glider, and scoot around the house, surfing atop a bar of soap.

Key Features:

  • Explore cities of ants, beetles and other insects built inside of a giant house
  • Meet characters everywhere you go and learn their stories and history
  • Catch over a hundred tinykin in each city, and use their special abilities to climb higher, break down doors and solve the city's problems!
  • Skateboard around on Milo's tiny soap-board! Jump, grind and hover around the house
  • Collect upgrades to improve Milo's bubble-pack, build out the Ardwin Museum and complete Ridmi's mysterious machine!"

Find a way home through a sprawling ant-sized metropolis, and unravel Earth's biggest mystery!

Tinykin is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) in Summer 2022.
