Independent games studio Other Tales Interactive has a new Switch game getting nice and crispy in the oven, and its premise has us particularly intrigued.

Called Tick Tock: A Tale for Two, the game is a co-op puzzle adventure designed to be played on two devices (cross-platform play is set to be supported so this can be across entirely different machines, too). You and your friend are each trapped in a different mystical world, both needing to solve increasingly complex puzzles to escape. The catch is that cooperation and communication are key - neither of you can see the full picture and going solo simply isn’t an option.

You can get a great idea of the premise behind this one in the trailer above, where players are using their device of choice and communicating with a friend to solve each puzzle. If you're interested, a public beta is set to take place between 10th December and 7th January (sadly restricted to Steam and iOS only) where you'll be able to try the game out for yourself. If you want to take part, you simply need to join the Other Tales Discord server to be given a code.

For those who would rather wait for the full experience on Switch, the game will release on all platforms in Q1 2019 - you'll be able to play with others on Switch, PC, Mac, and mobile devices.

Do you like the idea behind this one? Does it intrigue you enough to consider a purchase? Let us know in the comments below.
