A Tale of Two Worlds: a smart puzzle-platformer channelling The Longest Journey and Trine

Tom Sykes at

In this clever student game project from Ahmed Majdoubi and co, you're trapped between the twin worlds of magic and technology - and as everyone knows, those two don't exactly get along. While A Tale of Two Worlds' premise reminds of The Longest Journey, the platforming is pure Trine, all jaunty fairytale music and cube-manhandling. The neat twist is that its two worlds are represented on the screen at the same time; you can even drag the border around with the mouse. AToTW's currently in development, but there's a browser-based alpha version you can play right now. And you should.

As IndieGames report (thanks, IndieGames!), there should be a longer version of the alpha released in a couple of days - but there's plenty to enjoy in the meantime. AToTW is a submission to the French newspaper Le Monde's 'Hits-Playtime' competition - best of luck to the team.
