Tick Tock: A Tale For Two is an innovative cross-platform multiplayer cooperative puzzle adventure where communication is key, as neither player has the whole picture of the puzzles they’re trying to solve.
Tick Tock: A Tale For Two is played with two people, either locally or remotely, and will allow for cross-platform play between Nintendo Switch, Mac, PC, iOS and Android devices (though the Beta test is currently just Steam and iOS). The narrative and game world draw inspiration from Scandinavian folklore with you exploring an eerie village created by a skilled clockmaker called Amalie Ravn.
In the game you and your partner find yourselves trapped within the clockwork village and must discover its many secrets and solve its intricate puzzles to escape. Crucially, neither player has a full picture of the game world or the puzzles within it so must communicate with each other about the details on their versions of the world and discuss how they can be used to solve the clockmaker’s puzzles.
It’s a fantastic concept that offers real cooperative gameplay where you’ll have to interpret what you see in your version of the world to the other player, discuss the way forward and give each other instructions. A cleverly crafted puzzle adventure where you to communicate to illuminate and confer to conquer its clockwork world.
