64 bit Windows build is live

Hey guys, we just flipped the switch to enable the 64 bit build of Tiny & Big on Windows. This hopefully means a few good things for those of you running 64 bit Windowses:

  • Physics performance will improve on modern CPUs, we've seen frame rates go up by about 10%
  • Less out-of-memory errors or crashes when running on integrated graphics chips
  • The sweet, fuzzy feeling that your 64 bit hardware purchases are just a little bit more justified.
If it doesn't work for you, especially for those of you running 32 bit Windows, please tell us in the forums. Thanks!

And one more little thing, we recently enabled Steam leaderboards for the game, so you can compare your awesome puzzle solving speed-runs. Enjoy!

Silly story, nice to cut and slice objects, a bit short main storyline.

Goodlooking graphics, lot to explore , cut, and collect besides the main storyline.
Many achievements to unlock.

Even tho it is not really my type of game, I did enjoy playing it.

Pretty rad game mechanics where you can cut the level apart with a laser and drag the pieces around with a grappling hook or attach rockets to them and launch them.

It's got a pretty quirky art style and story.

Took me about 2.5 hours to beat. Not bad for a game I got for next to nothing in a Humble Bundle eons ago.

Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers is one of the most unique games I have ever played.

Gameplay:

The main game mechanic, on which all gameplay is based off of, is slicing (with your awesome laser slicer), pulling, and pushing pieces of... well... stuff - statues, pillars, blocks, walls, floors, just about anything. It's super fun, fluid, and addictive, and what really defines this game.

Story:

The story is quite simple, Tiny (who you play as) is looking for his Grandpa's white, fine rib underpants - who Big (your arch nemesis) is wearing.

Graphics:

The artstyle in this game is unique and gorgeous, I've never seen a game with a similar artstyle, so I can't give you an example. Watching a video is OK to get an idea of what it's like, but when you're in-game is when the graphics really shine. So yeah, the art is fantastic, but don't expect Crysis 3-esque graphics, the highlight in the graphical department is the artstyle, not textures, lighting or any of that.

Audio:

The sound effects are satisfying, and are complimented with cartoony "BANG", "SMASH" and "FIZZLE" pop-ups. The soundtrack is fan-f*cking-tastic, you add to the soundtrack by collecting tapes in-game, and they're all (in my opinion) awesome. I would recommend getting the game+soudtrack version, but first search YouTube for some tracks from the game to see if it's your kind of thing.

Some other stuff:

I finished the game in almost 4 hours, but i have nowhere near 100% completion - the game is full with stuff to collect - tapes, and tons of rocks (yeah, you collect these special rocks). So if you take you time to enjoy the game, have fun with the slicing, and make an effort to find secrets (there are secret rooms with easter egg-ish stuff in them), you can probably sink almost 15 hours into the game in one playthrough.

Also, I would say the game deservees a higher score than metacritic's 75, it's a real Indie pearl.

Definetly recommend! Have fun!

This game is tons of fun, it accomplishes something not a lot of games do which is giving you a great sense of freedom. It is amazingly fun to play around with the different ways you can slice and dice or rocket your way through a level and has a ton of small little secrets here and there. The story is good simple fun and I will recomment this game to anyone who is missing a good, fun platforming experience.

A great 3D puzzle platformer, where you cut rocks to form shapes to jump along. The environmental destruction is really fun, and the falling blocks feel really weighty.

If you have a low end computer I wouldn't recomend this game but to anyone who believes that their computer has the power by all means at least try the demo. My laptop that I play this on can normally only get in one level before it crashes from sheer awesomeness from all the grabing rocketing and lazering this games has to offer.

Lets just say... this game is great. I honestly dont really know who made it but its fantastic. Strange story, indeed, i wonder how high they were in that department. The game is amazingly fun though, if you're thinking about buying it, buy it

A great strategy, puzzle, platforming game that isn't too long, but is tons of fun.


This video review is very old, and is pretty low quality. Watch at your own discretion.

Imagine portal and portal 2, now imagine solving those puzzels anyway you want. Tiny and big allows you to try diffrent ways to solve the same puzzle. While playing I realized that, you will never cut or pull or rocket the same stone twice. It is always diffrent. There is is infinte possiblities to solve a puzzle. The dialong is quirky and fun as is the plot, and the levels are always well thaught out!
