Media Molecule tease their newest game with a video entitled "Making games: Embrace your mistakes"

U.K.-based studio Media Molecule, the minds behind LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway, are working on PlayStation 4 title. Today the company put out a teaser for the new project. And it is a trip.

“Embrace Your Mistakes”

The YouTube description for the video reads:

A rendering error on our new PS4 project caused this trippy sequence of colorful nonsense that begged to be shared. Consider it an exclusive peek at our new game if you like, it’s not particularly revealing, but it is fun, that much we guarantee… mostly.

This makes the footage shown to somehow be a part of the game.

The short clip shows what look like faces having various strobe lights shown on them, with a moustached fellow in particular being shown. The music played with the video only adds to the trippiness, and is actually catchy.

Media Molecules last project, the PS Vita exclusive Tearaway, was released last November. Aside from this video, the studio has not revealed anything about the PS4 project, though the company did do a demo for the PlayStation Move controller during the PS4 reveal event in 2013.

Count me interested

While the video was not exactly actual gameplay or anything of the sort, I do wonder how it will tie into the project. This teaser did its job on me, as I now want to know more about the project, and how it will all come together. So far Media Molecule has a good track record, so I am sure they will find a way to make this game as interesting and creative as their past endeavours.

Hopefully we will hear more from Media Molecule soon, and get an idea of what this new project has in store. While there are a few good-looking games coming out next year, a project from this studio will be an amazing addition to the PS4 lineup.
