Tick Tock is a purely co-op experience where you and your friend find yourselves trapped in two magical clockworlds where you have to solve puzzles to escape.

In Tick Tock: A Tale for Two you and your friend get trapped in a game created by the skilful clockmaker Amalie Ravn. In order to escape you need to navigate a magical clock world filled with secrets and puzzles. The only problem is... neither of you have the full picture. Only when you combine the information on your two screens will you have the means to get closer to the truth and your ultimate escape.

Prepare yourselves for a narrative adventure where your communication skills are put to the test. Read out loud to each other, discuss what you see and what you are told, and remember, time is a fickle thing.

Other Tales Interactive announced that the open beta for Tick Tock: A Tale for Two will be released on December 10th for PC and iOS.

“When Tick Tock: A Tale for Two was selected to be part of PAX West’s coveted PAX10 this year, and featured in EGX's Leftfield Collection, the great feedback we received has really helped us shape development,”  said Tanja Lind Tankred of Other Tales Interactive. “We’re excited to share this build in a public beta and we can’t wait to hear your feedback on the first level. We need your help to make Tick Tock the best co-op experience possible!”

The beta takes place between December 10th and January 7th, 2019, and is exclusive to Steam and iOS. To take part in the beta, all you need to do is join the Other Tales Discord server, which will get you the beta key and help you connect to other players. Keep an eye on the clock so you don’t miss it.

Key Features:

  • Solve Puzzles with a Friend: Share and combine information with a friend to solve puzzles. Keep your screen hidden from the other player if you want a more challenging experience.
  • :Experience a Story: Uncover the memories of two sisters and piece together the full story.
  • Explore an Eerie World: Enter a world in a hand drawn style where you'll be able to explore different locations in an eerie village. Visit an old clock shop, investigate rooms with creaky floorboards, and venture down into a dark basement to find answers.
  • Cross-Platform Option: This game can be played cross-platform, you just need two devices. So you can play the game on either two computers or on one computer and one phone.

Tick Tock: A Tale for Two will be launching on Nintendo Switch alongside PC, Mac and Mobile devices in Q1 2019!
