It Takes Two
is out later this month, and the co-op only two-player adventure has the potential to be something pretty great -- and unique too. It's not everyday you get a split-screen built from the ground-up co-op game with a strong narrative focus and imaginative design.
From developer Hazelight, the studio behind the also co-op A Way Out, It Takes Two has been designed from the ground-up as a two-player experience. From the dynamic split-screen presentation to the mechanics and the story -- it’s co-op through and through. In terms of how it plays, well it’s something of a platformer with the finesse of Super Mario Odyssey and the art-style of a high end animated feature. It’s chock full of puzzles, traversal, and the story is presented in a fantastical and humorous style that also packs in underlying themes and dialogue that skirts the line between on-the-nose Cheeses of the World Fest 2021 and being genuinely sweet and funny.

It Takes Two is also endlessly surprising and inventive, with set-pieces ranging from battling a sentient vacuum cleaner to overthrowing a dictatorial squirrel found on a backyard tree in a war against wasps.
And all of this comes from spending a couple of hours with the game ahead of its launch later this month.
