Who’s Two Tribes?

We’re a small Dutch game developer that has existed for over ten years and has recently made the transition to being totally independent. Our games overview will give you a good idea of the types of games we’ve created.

What’s a Toki Tori?

Toki Tori was the first game ever released by Two Tribes in 2001 for Game Boy Color. It is a puzzle/platform game that was remade into a WiiWare launch title in 2008 and also appeared on PC/Mac/Playstation3/iPhone/iPad/Android. Toki Tori has an 80 Metacritic score.

Toki Tori 2… +? What’s up with that “+”?

Toki Tori 2+ was originally released on the Wii U eShop as Toki Tori 2. For the Steam release we decided to change and improve a lot! Read all about those changes in this blog: http://twotribes.com/message/toki-tori-2-a-big-plus-on-steam.

Tell Me About Toki Tori 2+!

Toki Tori 2+ is the first game in a decade’s time that we’ve made entirely without a publisher looming over our shoulders. It’s a pure Two Tribes product that we have worked on as long as necessary to really make it shine…

Toki Tori 2+ is a Metroidvania style puzzle adventure game in which you explore a lush forest island inhabited by strange creatures. Whistle and stomp to influence their behavior, and solve the puzzles. But what’s up with that black goo? It’s threatening your home world!

Our unlikely yellow hero may be the star of the show, but he won’t get anywhere without the creatures he meets along the way. You can whistle and stomp to influence them, and use their abilities in your advantage. As you play, the storyline unfolds. Your goal is to get to the core of the corruption and save the island!

The game’s Metroidvania style open world opens up as players learn more about the world and its creatures. This means inquisitive players can go anywhere right from the start while less experienced players can simply follow the game’s flow.

We want players to figure everything out themselves by experimentation, which means there are no tutorials or explanatory texts. Actually, there is hardly any text in the game. Who reads that anyway?

No text? What About A Story Then?

The game’s story is told through interactive in-game story advancing sections, which never take away control from the player. While progressing through the game, the story will slowly unfold and will show the true potential of our unlikely chicken hero Toki Tori.
