Tiny Brains: An Experimental Co-op Laboratory

     I haven't read much about this fascinating game, but what I have read about Tiny Brains makes it look like a wonderful love child of Pinky & The Brain and Ratchet & Clank (All 4 One).  Really, the co-op puzzle solving using 4 individualized characters and abilities is fairly brilliant.  
Spearhead Games (Montreal) presents: Tiny Brains  
Tiny Brains is a 3D co-op action puzzle game in which up to four players can take the role of tiny (but super-powered!) lab animals. Players must work together using complementary physics-based abilities to tackle the tests of a nefarious mad scientist. 
Tiny Brains is set in a lab where four super-powered animals have to work together to solve puzzles and escape from a mad scientist’s experiment. We chose this theme because now that we are indie devs and have more flexibility, experimentation is what we’re all about in our creative process. 
I absolutely LOVE the character designs
     In fact, I read that there are 16 different ways to combine the various powers to solve the first level alone. Creative flexibility in game design may be a hell of a game changer for Tiny Brains.  That fact by itself opens an entire world of game design up- think about that with your regular sized brains- that amounts to unlimited possibility.

     A small but fascinating experiment heading to the PS4.
