Herocraft, the makers of several well-known games, recently released The Tiny Bang Story (TTBS) to the Google Play store. TTBS has a beautiful hand-drawn style to accompany the puzzle/hidden object gameplay. This seems to be a perfect fit for mobile devices, especially devices with an HD display like the Nexus 7. With the casual market only rising, Herocraft has found what it does best and made it better.
Here’s the caption from the Play store where TBBS already has an overwhelming number of five star reviews:
“Welcome to Tiny Planet, a gorgeous steampunk inspired world sadly devastated by a recent asteroid strike. Your mission is to help rebuild this beautiful idyll and restore it to its former glory. To do so you’ll need to hunt hidden objects, solve puzzles and conquer devilish brain teasers.”
The style looks quite a bit like the point-and-click adventure game Machinarium, which was lauded for its graphics. I’ll be playing through TTBS this week, and I’ll have a review up pretty soon. Check back to find out all the ins-and-outs of the game as well as my full thoughts.
