Troll and I Out Today on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in North America; Launch Trailer Released
Today, developer Spiral House and publisher Maximum Games’ action adventure game, Troll and I, launches onto PS4, Xbox One, and PC (it launches in Europe on March 24th) at the price point of $49.99 USD. And to celebrate: the pair have released the standard and industry custom launch trailer.
As you may know, developer Spiral House has been around since 1999. However, with Troll and I, this is the first time the developer has ventured off its “work for hire” path and created its own and first IP.
Here’s an overview of the game via Maximum Games:
Step into an enchanting vision of the past in Troll and I, a story of friendship and survival against the odds. Based in post-World War II Scandinavia, Troll and I combines harsh reality with a folkloric twist. Take on the roles of Otto, a young boy, and Troll, a fierce supernatural creature with whom Otto forms a rare bond, as they struggle to survive the wilderness, their inexperience, and bloodthirsty hunters on their trail.
With a bounty on their heads and nobody but each other to rely on, these two heroes face seemingly insurmountable odds and treachery at every turn. They must work together if they’re to survive—their unlikely friendship is their only hope.
According to Spiral House, Troll and I fuses together the fun of combat and exploration with story and puzzles, in a way similar to series like Uncharted and Tomb Raider.
In the game you play as both Troll and Otto, and will have to fight hunters who are tracking you down, and also deal with the strange and dark creatures found throughout the Scandinavian wilds.
Both Troll and Otto contain different skill sets and have individual personalities. Otto is quick and nimble, while Troll possess brute strength and is a great brawler. As you would expect, both also have weaknesses, meaning each are pertinent to the other’s chance of survival. As you play, you can switch back and forth between the two whenever you want or play through the game via splitscreen. Notably, the game also contains a skill tree system and a crafting system.
Below you can check out the new launch trailer. Additionally, if you picked up a Nintendo Switch and want to play the game on there, then it may be best to wait until sometime later this spring when the game comes to the new Nintendo platform.
