Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers

Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers is a new 3d action title from Black Pants Game Studio. The protagonist is Tiny, a little bean-shaped dude with an impressive laser gun that can cut through solid objects at any angle. The heart of the game involves using Tiny’s laser, grappling hook, and jetpack to solve puzzles throughout its six stages.

Special mention should be given to TnB’s art style, the brainchild of comicker Sebastian Stamm. Characters and environments are detailed with black lines and stippling. Likewise, the game’s dialogue and sound effects are all conveyed using Stamm’s unique word balloons and lettering. Looks quite cool, in my opinion.

You can get the game for $10 on Steam, GOG.com, and GamersGate.

    Btw: You should buy it on the T&B site to get some gimmicks and also a steam key :)

    This game does look sweet. I’m going to check it out.
    We have a new game we are trying to develop as well right now.
    Check it out and let me know what you think.

    I just looked at the requirements for the game:

    Core2duo / Athlon X2 with at least 2.4 GHz
    GeForce 8800 series / Radeon 2900 series or better. ”

    See, this is what I think is wrong with a lot of 3D independent games out there. Sure, they’re a small team, but I still would have expected an independent game to be a little more optimized than your average Ubisoft game (and that’s saying a lot).

    Don’t get me wrong, the gameplay and art looks great and it may be great fun. I’m just talking about the engine.

    It seems like a lot of new independent devs out there think that “pretty graphics” equals “good engine”. I may not be a programmer but I know that there’s more to an engine than just its graphics.

    And again, don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about the gameplay.
