Tiny Brains PS4 delay due to online fixes

Tiny Brains from Spearhead Games was supposed to be a PlayStation 4 launch title, but the cooperative puzzle game is missing the party, by ten days.

According to co-founder Atul Nath Mehra, the delay came about in order to bring its online multiplayer modes up to scratch. "We're trying to polish the game a bit more, especially on the online side," he told Polygon. "It's only ten days or so. There weren't any big problems, we just wanted that super-seamless vision online, just like on the PlayStation 4 ads when the player switches between online and offline."

Tiny Brains stars four lab rats, each of which has a unique skill. Players must work together to solve problems. The game also makes use of the DualShock 4's lightbar and touchpad, as part of the game's cooperative communication toolset. There's also a slightly less co-op mode called Tiny Trolls, in which friendly-fire is encouraged and players can behave badly toward one another.

Tiny Brains will be launched by publisher 505 Games on Nov. 26 for PlayStation 4. A Windows PC and PlayStation 3 version is expected to arrive in December.
