First Look: Tiny Galaxy
A tiny bit of info on this galaxy

Recently I got my hands on a (very) early build of a game called Tiny Galaxy that will be coming to the Wii U eShop in early 2015.

Tiny Galaxy is a platformer that plays a bit like a 2D version of Super Mario Galaxy. The build I played was about collecting the stars and going through the portal at the end, all while avoiding these spinning blades. The last few levels were pretty difficult, so the final...
