Spearhead and 505 have announced a partnership to digitally release Tiny Brains on PS4, timed to the platform’s North American launch on November 15th. The four-person action puzzler will be released simultaneously, also via digital download, on PSN and PC.

“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.”

In Tiny Brains, four super-powered lab animals — each with a unique power — must escape from a mad scientist and his wicked experiments. To do this, they must work together to traverse a maze full of physics-based tricks and puzzles. Each puzzle features multiple solutions depending on how players cooperate.

Offering local and online drop-in/drop-out multiplayer as well as a full co-op campaign and additional Challenge and competitive modes, Tiny Brains is a truly social, next generation multiplayer title.
“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 has been rated Everyone 10+ (E10+) by the ESRB.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
