"It'll Blow Your F**king Mind Away": A Way Out Creator Josef Fares announces It Takes Two

June 20, 2020

It Takes Two is a brand new game from Joseph “F*** the Oscars!” Fares and the team at Hazelight. An EA Originals title, it was announced alongside Lost in Random and a new trailer for Rocket Arena during EA Play Live on Thursday.

A co-op action adventure platformer that Fares says will “blow your f***ing mind away” — language that doesn’t quite fit the game’s colourful animated aesthetic — the game is set amongst family turmoil and involves a pair of wood and clay dolls that will play with the concept of emotions. You know what, watch the video below. Joseph explains it better than I can.

The video — whilst very slickly put together — doesn’t show us a whole lot of the game, aside from a few environments and what looks to be concept art. It’s safe to say that we shouldn’t expect this game any time soon but if, like me, you enjoyed A Way Out or Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons — two other Hazelight games directed by Fares — then you know this could work well despite sounding quite high concept.

It Takes Two is due out in 2021. No platforms have currently been announced.

Do you think It Takes Two will “blow your f***ing mind away?” Let us know in the comments.
