Operation Tango, the two-player espionage-themed asymmetrical cooperative adventure game from independent game studio Clever Plays, will be included in two high-profile indie showcase events this week
“These popular showcases are an amazing way to help the public discover and try smaller indie and experimental games they might otherwise miss,” commented Mattieu Bégin, co-founder and lead designer at Clever Plays. “This year, with the lack of in-person events and so much focus on next-gen platforms, such opportunities are more important than ever in terms of building awareness. We’re honored to have Operation: Tango included, and hope people will download the free demo, recruit a friend, and give it a try.”
Operation Tango, winner of this year’s “Best Multiplayer Award” at Gamescom, takes an innovative approach to the co-op game genre, requiring two players to collaborate closely, with one in the role of “Agent” and the other in the role of “Hacker”. Linked via voice
communications and an augmented, fully-connected world, each has a different play experience, leveraging each other’s skills to infiltrate, investigate, and eradicate the forces threatening the free world.
Teamwork and verbal communication are at the center of the experience, with dialog between players being key to the progression of the game. Only by sharing the vantage points of each role can players overcome the many challenges that stand between them
and completing each mission. Operation Tango is slated for release in Q2, 2021 for Steam, PS4, and Xbox One, with additional platforms to possibly follow.
