Arcade adventure game MicroMan announced for PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch, and PC

Due out first for PC in second half of 2021.


Warsaw-based Glob Games Studio has announced MicroMan, an arcade adventure game about laboratory worker has been shrunk down to the size of an ant. It will launch first for PC via Steam in the second half of 2021, followed later by PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Switch.

“Our new game will allow you to look at the human world from a completely fresh perspective,” said GLob Games Studio vice president Karol Marcinkowski in a press release. “MicroMan will have to face adversities that the average person would not even think of. We will provide the players with a surprising, dynamic and—at the same time—very multifaceted adventure. We will be fighting rats, running away from a hedgehog, looking for a way to get on the bus, or trying to avoid getting crushed by human feet. And these are just some of the things MicroMan will offer. All this will be wrapped in stylish audio and visuals and sprinkled with a good dose of good humor.”

Here is an overview of the game, via Glob Games Studio:


MicroMan is a new game combining adventure, action, and survival that will allow you to look at the human world from a completely new perspective. It will offer very diverse gameplay and a crazy, humor-filled story.

MicroMan is being developed with the single player experience in mind. The release will combine, among others, elements of action adventure, arcade, and survival games. The main protagonist is a laboratory worker who, as a result of an unfortunate incident, falls into an experimental reduction capsule and gets shrunk to the size of a small insect.

The player’s goal will be to find a way to return to his normal size. As the developers explain, the road to achieve this will not be short and easy, and the gameplay itself will be very diverse and include various interesting and surprising elements. The game will involve face-offs with powerful enemies (such as ants, frogs and hedgehogs), unusual means of transport (e.g. a butterfly), thinking how to overcome obstacles and making sure the hero is in good physical condition. The creators have also announced that MicroMan will feature decisions that will directly affect the gameplay.
