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.

"perhaps one of the most clever game ideas I’ve ever seen." - TouchArcade

"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

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.

So much fun, wish it could be longer

I played this with my husband, each of us using our phones (but this is also available on the nintendo switch). It took us about 2 hours & 20 minutes from start to finish, and we enjoyed every minute. The puzzles are not too easy, not too hard; require a nice level of teamwork/communication, but not frustratingly so; and the artwork & sounds really fit a great aesthetic. I only wish it was longer or that there were more games like this one. Please make more!!

Challenging, creative, and FUN

My wife and I, much like the other reviewer, are HUMONGOUS escape room fanatics. I even work for a company making mystery games. Tick Tock is so clever and innovative, I was continuously in a state of enjoyment, even during the moments that had us scrambling for answers.

The presentation of this game was flawless, the story was unique, the challenges were hair-pullingly complicated at times (in a very very good way), and I greatly hope this team is able to release more games in this style. I’ll definitely be eager to download it!
