Parkour-influenced adventure from a talented German studio


At LOOT, we like to buck trends, swim upstream, and wear our sunglasses at night. Which is why this game announcement does not introduce unshaven gravel-voiced anti-heroes, a vague plot involving paramilitary forces, a production budget roughly akin to the GDP of a small European nation, and a color scheme comprised of only blacks, whites, grays and reds.

Instead, we’re introducing you to a whimsical, colorful platformer. Made by Germans.


This, of course, is unprecedented. Picture the phrase, “German platformer game” in your head. You saw something roughly akin to Wolfenstein mashed up with Rammstein, didn’t you: slightly severe time trials, obscure rules, and somebody shouting at you.

Instead, you get Tinkerworld: lots of colours, friendly characters, and – whisper it – fun.

We play lots of games. You play lots of games. So when we played Mimimi Productions’ The Last Tinker for the first time, we knew we had to bring it to PlayStation consoles first, because THANK GOD AND ALL THAT IS HOLY, IT’S SOMETHING FRESH AND DIFFERENT.



To be fair, PlayStation rocks because they've openly embraced indie developers – and that’s not just PR speak, that’s real. This is awesome, because it means that hidden gems like The Last Tinker suddenly get to bask in the console-exclusive glow as part of the PlayStation family. And the game’s hero, Koru, knows how to bask. Look at the sideburns, man. And the scarf.

The catch, of course, is that because so many fantastic indie games are being showcased, you really do have to have something especially cool in order to stand out. So, in no particular order, here’s why you should check out Tinker:

  • So the trailer you just watched talks about bringing harmony back to the fractured districts of Colortown, right? But there’s this whole other story involving a malevolent force called The Bleakness, and it’s taking over the world, and SPOILERS—
  • There are some really cool puzzles in this game. At one point, you even have to conduct a symphony…
  • The fighting mechanics kick ass; as you gain the power to wield each of the different colors against increasingly tough opponents, you have to learn when to finesse your way forward rather than trying to button-mash to victory.
  • This game has parkour, yo.
  • Quick: name another PS4 3D platformer.


Sometimes a game surprises you. Like grabbing a bag of Cool Ranch chips at the store only to get home and find out it’s Spicy Nacho and then finding out you actually really like Spicy Nacho, The Last Tinker starts off as Cool Ranch and turns into Spicy Nacho with Sriracha. Gobs and gobs of Sriracha. Trust us on this. We went deep there for a reason.

Starting on 19th August, discover Tinkerworld on the PS4 for yourself. Have any questions about the game? Shoot us a comment below. See you in Colortown!

The Last Tinker: City of Colors Out Tomorrow on PS4
Jump into a colorful world filled with imagination and creativity. An eye-catching 3D platformer out tomorrow on PS4.


This is it. Right here, tomorrow. Will be your moment to help begin the renaissance of the indie-developed, 3D platformer.

The reaction to our announcement that The Last Tinker was coming to PlayStation was staggering. We knew it would be positive, but not to this degree! We had no idea there was this pent-up demand for more 3D platformers.

This isn’t just a game. This is a statement. A confirmation of the belief that 3D platformers are not dead. A shining neon beacon, fifty stories tall, that there is more to a game than technical specifications.

PlayStation is a platform for the biggest and loudest games ever made. Absolutely. But it’s also a platform which openly promotes creativity and imagination. People turn to the indie scene when they want something different; something innovative, stylish, and creative.


The Last Tinker: City of Colors is a PS4 game that is as wonderful and fun to play as those great PS2 and PS3 games of yesterday. At LOOT, we really do believe Tinker will be remembered as the spark which rekindled the 3D platformer fire. We don’t mean to be all serious and profound, but seriously and profoundly, check Tinker out. You’ve seen the trailers. You’ve read the behind-the-scenes banter. Tinkerworld is open for you to explore. If you want to see more of this type of game again, then this is the moment to show your support.

Let us know how you feel about the game below! We’d love to hear your feedback about The Last Tinker! Follow LOOT on Twitter for more.
