Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
In Tick Tock: A Tale for Two you and your friend get trapped in a game created by the skillful clockmaker Amalie Ravn. In order to escape you need to navigate a magical clock world filled with secrets and puzzles. The only problem is… neither of you have the full picture. Only when you combine the information on your two screens will you have the means to get closer to the truth and your ultimate escape.
Prepare yourselves for a narrative adventure where your communication skills are put to the test. Read out loud to each other, discuss what you see and what you are told, and remember, time is a fickle thing.
- Solve Puzzles with a Friend – Share and combine information with a friend to solve puzzles. Keep your screen hidden from the other player if you want a more challenging experience.

- Cross-Platform Option – This game can be played cross-platform, you just need two devices. So you can play the game on either two computers or on one computer and one phone.
