An adventure for two, you need a copy each to play!

Tick Tock: A Tale for Two is an eerie cooperative puzzle game for two players. Each player needs a copy of the game on their own mobile device (phone or tablet) to play. You can also play cross-platform with a Nintendo Switch or a computer (PC or Mac).

Average playtime: 2.5h


You and your friend are trapped in a mystical clockwork world. As time ebbs away you must solve increasingly complex puzzles to escape. Cooperation is key as neither of you have the full picture! Play on two devices, local or remotely, all you need is a voice connection.

"a spooky multiplayer puzzle game with a brilliant hook - that the game is played simultaneously on two screens, with half of the clues on one and half on the other." - EUROGAMER

"a fantastic, beautiful game that can bring you closer to your friends and loved ones" - Coin-Drop

Great game, wish there was more

I played this with my best friend over the phone, and it was like someone had made a game just for us. Good puzzles, dark mood, good story. Works great over the phone. But it was so short! I guess we got our $2.99 worth, but it we were shocked that it was only 3 chapters long. This is a great idea, and we were enchanted all the way, but you simply must make them longer for the purchase price. Looking forward to the next installment.

The game even said we “Wasted our time”

Me and my Girlfriend tried to play this game, and at first it was a good one. Small puzzles and teamwork was a must. But as the game went on it felt like the puzzles were leading nowhere. We took a few days break and came back to it today to meet Chapter 3. We find ourselves so lost within the games puzzles that even though the solution felt simple, it took way too long to achieve the final goal.

Now onto the point of the title. We reached the end of the game and were met with a message that we “wasted 174 minutes of your life.” I feel that message was hurtful and somewhat demeaning. I played your game to have a great time with the woman I love and you went back and told us that we wasted our time. Not a very good message to add into a game as frustrating as this. This games story also has no meaning because we felt no connection to the characters and no true bond with each other as players. I have been gaming the past 10 years of my life and I have to say that this is the least thoughtful game I have encountered. Great visuals, no good game.

Need more games like this one

My wife and I are escape room fanatics. We've played, written, and built out countless number of rooms. With COVID-19 tearing through the country, we haven’t been able to play one in a long long time. We stumble across this game and it was just the type of thing we were looking for to temporarily take the place of our beloved pastime. However, now that we’ve finished Tick Tock, there’s nothing else left. Sure, there are hundreds of escape room games for iOS, but none that I have found that are multiplayer. We really do need more games like this.
