Mobile, PC, Tablet, Coming to Nintendo Switch
Tick Tock: A Tale for Two is a two-player co-op adventure game where communication is key. Combine information on both players’ screens and test your puzzle solving skills as you unravel mysteries together and get out while you still can.
Tick Tock: A Tale for Two started as a research project in 2016 where Tanja Tankred and Mira Dorthé wanted to investigate how to create a narrative for two. The result was a hand drawn world, inspired by Scandinavian fairy tales, where you could explore eerie locations and solve cryptic puzzles with your friend.
As we got funding and an investment for the project more team members joined to elevate the experience and we started to venture to festivals, showcased the game and won multiple awards.
The game was released in 2019.
