Spearhead Games Bringing Tiny Brains To The PlayStation 4

In an announcement on the Playstation Blog, Spearhead Games announced they’ll be publishing their physics based co-op puzzle game Tiny Brains (currently PC exclusive)┬áto the Playstation 4. In tiny brains you’ll assume control of a genetically enhanced animal and solve puzzles in a lab setting. Your ultimate goal will be escaping from a mad scientists experiment, and each puzzle will have several solutions based on the cooperation of the four playable animals.


When citing the inspiration for Tiny Brains, Spearhead explained that the games theme is a metaphor based on the level of exploration and innovation that indie developers put into their creative process. The developer has also stated they have no ‘design doc’ process that constrains their creativity, meaning that when a designer has a great idea, they have the freedom to create it. The team group tests the newly created level, and is given the green light if the general consensus is positive. That leads to endless ideas, options, and resources to draw from in a game like Tiny Brains.

The Playstation 4 is aiming to become a hot bed of indie games that are currently only found on PC hardware. Sony has altered the concept submission process in order for indie developers to publish and price their own games more efficiently. We already know that Blacklight: Retribution and Primal Carnage: Genesis are heading to the PS4 during it’s launch window. If Sony can secure a large cast of indie developed games on it’s re-imagined marketplace it could help diversify the crowd that’s interested in purchasing the new console.

We’ll keep you up to date on all the indies heading to Sony’s next gen console as they’re announced. Does indie support on the Playstation 4 matter to you? Let us know in the comments below.
