This makes Rose further withdraw emotionally, so that she makes two toy dolls out of wood and clay. One day, they magically come to life. You slip into the roles of the dolls, which you can both control and steer through different sections. The emotions of Rose will play a major role in this process and even serve as the basis for novel gameplay mechanics. In order for the parents to regain their human bodies, you'll have to work together as a team and experience a highly emotional story that combines gameplay and storytelling.
Josef Fares, the founder of the developer studio Hazelight, is undoubtedly a special personality in the gaming world. He describes himself as brazen and does not hesitate to curse loudly on stage at big gaming events like The Game Awards. That he would one day make a name for himself with video games such as A Way Out and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was certainly not yet foreseeable for him when his family and him successfully emigrated from Lebanon at the age of ten on their fifth attempt and found a new home in Sweden. With the co-op action adventure platformer It Takes Two, he and his team are now working on the third title of the indie studio, set to be released in 2021.
