During this year’s PC Gaming Show, developers tinyBuild announced Tinykin, a new sci-fi platform adventure. It's the year 2748 and you play as a young scientist named Milo who has rediscovered the Earth. Milo is transported to the planet only to discover that he has become the size of a thimble.
It’s a love situation, I’ve reduced the situation to children, and not only does Milo need to figure out how to get back to normal size, but also how to get home. Exploring a giant house like a little astronaut, Milo can jump, glide and grind, but he also has help from the tinykin, a mysterious alien life form that follows him.
Tinykin creatures have a mechanic similar to pikmin. Throw away your tinykin and you will be given actions such as moving heavy objects, building a bridge or standing on top of each other to make a ladder. You will use your little alien army to solve puzzles and navigate this incredibly large world. When you complete a task, everyone cheers on what is adorable.
It's a mix of 2D and 3D images, and the open world looks great. There’s a bit in the trailer where you can jump through the hole of a guitar and discover a bug bar hidden inside, and hopefully there will be more surprises hidden in the corners of this giant world.
Tinykin will be released on PC sometime in 2022, and in the meantime, you can check out the exclusive PC Gaming Show trailer above.
