Tiny Brains, a PlayStation®4 launch title also available for PlayStation®3 and Windows PC, is a cooperative puzzler that follows four super-powered lab animals in their attempt to escape a mad scientist’s nefarious experiments. In this joyously chaotic multiplayer experience, the four “Tiny Brains” must combine their unique physics-based powers to navigate through a trick-ridden maze. Tiny Brains is the brainchild of AAA veterans-turned-indie-developers Simon Darveau (design director on Assassin’s Creed III naval battles) and Malik Boukhira (game designer on Assassin’s Creed II and Dead Space 3).  With local and online drop-in/drop-out multiplayer, a full co-op campaign and additional challenge and competitive modes, Tiny Brains is a truly social, next generation title.

  • Cooperative Gaming: Tiny Brains requires players to collaborate and put their heads together to overcome physics-based obstacles. With each player controlling a different superpower – Create, Force, Vortex and Teleport – the Tiny Brains must work as a team to move forward and escape the scientist’s deadly labyrinth of mazes.
  • Play It Your Way: All of the puzzles in Tiny Brains can be solved multiple ways depending on how groups combine their powers. The co-op level design creates dynamic, emergent gameplay, whether advancing through the campaign mode, beating time-based challenges, or competing in endless levels.
  • Whimsical World: To escape the mad scientist’s lair, players explore a colorful world of Popsicle stick-like ice pops, duct tape, tiny cages and Rube Goldberg machines. The zany art style gives rise to a slew of slightly mutated, yet oddly cute, playable characters.
  • Hardcore to Casual: Tiny Brains eggs on hardcore gamers with competitive leaderboards and fast-paced communicative play, challenging them to combine their powers as efficiently as possible.At the same time, the game has simple controls and physics-based mechanics that make it easy for casual and less-experienced gamers to jump right in.
