The guys at Spiral House are really busy working on their upcoming indie adventure game Troll and I which we here have been impressed by. Having played it at this years EGX the game shows a lot of promise as it heads to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in March. Now we can see the new featured story trailer which gives some further insight into what you can expect as you play this title. Plus we get to know about the Troll and I multiplayer system including split screen co-op.
I know right, that old trick! It’s almost like games have forgotten you can do that.
The game features a boy, Otto and his Troll friend. There are contrasting styles of combat given their size and strengths here so Troll will deal out high damage. Otto on the other hand is more nimble and traditional. But you can control both characters, with your friend co-operatively in local multiplayer.
Team up together and survive, solve puzzles and enjoy the game using classic split screen multiplayer. There nothing that states this is online as well which suggests this may be local only, for now at least.
Check out the story trailer below and a lot more details on this game down the page. Don’t forget to Share this out so other gamers can find out about it. And drop us a Disqus Comment at the end with what you think of the game.
Troll And I Details
Taking place in the majestic mountains and lush forests of post-World War II, 1950’s-era Scandinavia, Troll and I follows the adventure of a teenage boy and the unlikely friendship he develops with a massive, mythical Troll.
Though Otto moved to the backwoods with his family to live in harmony with nature, he now finds himself at the mercy of the unforgiving wilderness, ripped from his village when ruthless hunters looking for Troll destroy his home. Now with a bounty on his head, and forced into hiding to survive, Otto encounters and befriends Troll, an elusive creature of folklore and legend who has managed to stay hidden from the world…until now. Thrown together by circumstances out of their control, two stories of desperate survival become one.
Humans aren’t the only adversaries this duo will face off against during their journey. The hunters, in pursuit of their prize, have unwittingly awakened ancient evils from the depths of the earth, vicious kobolds and worse. Otto and Troll must work together, using their respective strengths and inherent skills to complement each other’s weaknesses if they are to survive the dire circumstances they find themselves in. No matter the unpredictable challenges they may face, be it supernatural or of this world, Otto and Troll have each other’s backs and will face them, together.
Troll and I features a combat system that allows contrasting abilities for each character: Troll and his highly damaging attacks can crush enemies in one blow while Otto incorporates more quick and nimble moves. Troll and Otto can also cohesively act as one to fight off rivals, solve puzzles and complete missions. Each employs their own distinct presence and gameplay functionality.
Utilising cooperative split-screen multiplayer, play locally with a friend, as teamwork is absolutely pivotal to staying alive. With a dynamic duo like Otto and Troll, the local co-op feature allows for shared collaboration between two gamers, creating an experience equally captivating for both players.
Troll and I is currently in development from Spiral House and will be published by Maximum Games. The game will be available on March 21, 2017 in North America and on March 24, 2017 in Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and digitally on PC.
