Tick Tock: A Tale for Two
Other Tales Interactive is a Danish/Swedish independent game studio that makes experimental story driven games. The studio consists of the two writers and designers Tanja Lind Tankred and Mira Dorthé and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Mira Dorthé and Tanja Lind Tankred are two writers and designers who met each other at University. They banded together due to their common love for narrative driven games, their Magic the Gathering addiction, and Mira's neverending supply of Coke Zero. They worked together on several game projects and always jam together. Their current project Tick Tock: A Tale for Two was created as part of their master thesis.
After graduating Mira and Tanja were part of the Swedish incubator called Stugan (www.stugan.com) and spent 7 weeks in the Swedish woods working on their game Tick Tock.
In November 2016 Mira and Tanja embarked on a journey and founded their company Other Tales Interactive. When they took their first steps out of the door they filled their backpacks with a few Classics, some fantasy novels, a creative writing manual, and of course a brand new set of MtG duelling decks.
"When I first looked at Tick Tock: A Tale for Two, I thought it had been developed by veteran indies [...] I’m still trying to wrap my head around the level of talent it would have taken to pick up these skills to this degree." – Paula Thomas, Coin-Drop
"Tick Tock [is] 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." – Tom Phillips, EUROGAMER
"Tick Tock: A Tale for Two is perhaps one of the most clever game ideas I’ve ever seen." – Jared Nelson, TouchArcade
"Tick Tock: A Tale for Two is a stylish puzzler where you and a friend find yourselves trapped in two clockworlds" – Emily Sowden, Pocket Gamer
"New startup wants to create social gaming experiences" – Vibeke Arildsen, ITU
