A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"Tiny & Big: Up that Mountain" is a free prototype released in March 2010, and the first thing ever made by the team that founded Black Pants Studio.

It shows Tiny, the game's protagonist, as he struggles to go after his nemesis: Big. The gameplay is very heavy on physics and features a back then pretty novel object cutting mechanism. It also comes rendered in a comic-book like art style.

Please note that the state of the prototype doesn't reflect the quality of the later commercial release Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers. It's a proof-of-concept for the game mechanics and the art style. If you like it, please consider buying the follow-up, because it works much better in every way!
