Spearhead Games, the indie studio responsible for the quirky co-op puzzler Tiny Brains, has revealed its next project: a competitive physics-based video game for PC and consoles.

Expanding the studio’s "always playtesting" philosophy, Spearhead will be opening the development process to the community for feedback through weekly Twitch shows airing Thursdays at 7 p.m. Eastern. For additional challenge and a little masochism, Spearhead co-founders, Malik Boukhira, Simon Darveau and Atul Mehra, have decided to build the game in three months.

"What we accomplished last year was insane," said Simon Darveau, co-founder at Spearhead Games. "We built a studio and a game in one year. I went from sleeping on Malik’s couch to building an awesome couch co-op game, and in the process we learned way more than we could have imagined.

Taking our experimental findings from Tiny Brains, we decided we want to give the community even more influence in building this new game. Everything will be open. Everything will be tested. Everything will be up for comment. This is the future of video games as we see it. Why not start the future now?"

More will be revealed on Thursday, March 6th at 7pm Eastern during Spearhead's weekly Twitch TV show. Meanwhile, have a look at a teaser video, concept art and character sketches.
