Insomniac, maker of Sunset Overdrive, Fuse, the Resistance games and Ratchet & Clank, is trying its hand at something a lot smaller and a little different.

The idea stemmed from a question: "What's the smallest number of Insomniacs it would take to make a great game?"

The result is Slow Down Bull, an "experiment", designer Lisa Brown wrote on the Insomniac Games website.


Slow Down Bull is a small action game about a stressed-out bull called Axel who likes to collect things.

If Axel gets too stressed out he will succumb to his bull instincts and trample all over everything. So you have to help him keep his cool.

Slow Down Bull is being made by just five people using the Unity game engine. It will be released on PC.

There's no release date yet, but Insomniac will stream its development on Friday afternoons PST on Twitch.
