This was actually announced several days ago but I figured some of you may not have seen it because it’s an indie title. Indie titles don’t get the type of attention the big budget games get from the big developers, but I always find them to be quite fun and very unique. Tiny Brains is from Spearhead Games and is co-founder by Simon Darveau who used to be at Ubisoft.
Tiny Brains follows four tiny lab animals — a rabbit, a mouse, a hamster, and a bat — each of whom has been so extensively experimented on as to develop cool psychic abilities. The bat can channel his voice to force-push objects away from him; the rabbit uses an electric charge generated by his huge floppy ears to pull objects towards him. The hamster can create a solid chunk of ice out of thin air, and the mouse can swap his position with that of another object at will. Each of these powers is useful, but no one power can solve the puzzles alone.
Tiny Brains is meant to be a co-op puzzler, but can be played by a single player if need be. If you check out the trailer above, you’ll find that it is actually a really cool looking puzzle game with some terrific looking graphics. If you want more information on Tiny Brains, I suggest heading on over to the PlayStation.Blog site and reading the post Mr. Darveau has up about the game.
