The co-op puzzle game Tiny Brains, created by former Assassin's Creed, Dead Space and Army of Two team members, finally has a solid release date.
A modern-day Lost Vikings meets Pinky and the Brain, Tiny Brains is shaping up to be a heavy-hitting co-op game. You play as four creatures who have been experimented on so long that they developed super powers. So, for example, the force power uses telekinesis to shove things around while create makes walls of ice. Teleport swaps positions with objects, and vortex pulls things towards himself. Fairly rudimentary abilities, for sure, but using them in concert becomes an exercise in team-based puzzle solving.
The story and mood are lighthearted in nature, not a dark PETA-inspired warning about experimenting on animals. Puzzles have multiple solutions, allowing players to do things their own way while paving the way for a high replay value. Our hands-on with Tiny Brains back at E3 left us with warm fuzzy feelings inside, so give it a read for more impressions.
Tiny Brains will be available for the North American launch of the PlayStation 4 on November 15. XBLA and PC versions should be available at that time as well. If you just can't wait until then, developer Spearhead will have playable demos at this year's PAX Prime.
