We first stumbled across Troll and I at EGX 2016 and have since been followed the adventures of Troll and Otto as they gear up for launch. Well, release day is here, at least if you’re in the United States, so probably best we check it out.
Available to purchase right now for $49.99, Troll and I tells the tale of a young boy, Otto, and his mythical creature friend, Troll, as they embark upon the most perilous of journeys, utilises each other’s skills in order to navigate their way through the forest they find themselves in, teaming up in order to stay alive. As is the way with many a game, there is unfortunately region difference in place and whilst those in North America can get in on the action right now, others will have to wait. In fact, if you’re UK based, then the £39.99 you’ll need to splash will have to be held back for a few more days.
But that said, with both Troll and Otto controlled by the single player, or the chance for a friend to drop in and take charge of one of the characters as you focus on the other, Troll and I looks set to scratch any local cooperative itch you may have.
The Xbox Games Store is waiting for your money, whilst your local games store will probably let you grab the full physical edition. Go spend that cash right now – although you may have to seriously consider forking out more for the digital version over the full disc option.
Deep in the Nordic wilderness, a teenage boy named Otto is forced to flee his home after a band of brutal hunters rip through his village in search of a mythical creature rumored to inhabit the forest. Now on the run for his life, Otto inadvertently finds and befriends the elusive creature being sought by the hunters. Thus begins the perilous adventure of Troll and Otto. Together, the unlikely friends embark on a journey through treacherous territory plagued with rivals. Natives to the forest, Troll and Otto must use their inherent skills to sneak, strategize, and battle their way back home. The forest is filled with unknowns, and teamwork is pivotal to staying alive.
