What is Twinkle Torch?

It’s a light-hearted, 2-player, co-op Adventure Game that is designed to feel like a dungeon series.

Think of it this way: In the RPG triad, we have the basic Tank, Healer, and DPS. In Twinkle Torch , we wanted to recreate the feeling of “Tanking and Healing” but with both players being able to do the DPS at the same time. It’s all about the the coordination between two people. It’s pretty simple!

But here’s a catch. You can’t heal and shield at the same time. The Twinkle Torch can only be used by one person at the same time. This means you’ll have to strategically coordinate with your partner to pass the torch!

Proof of Concept
We’ve iterated more than 4-6 prototypes with different verbs and mechanics for this project and we’ve tested them out to a number of friends and “pre-alpha” testers. Our goal had always been to find that “Hey! I need you with me” and “Let’s do this together!” feels as players go through the game.

It’s now come to a point where we’ve locked in the game design’s core and the look-and-feel we’re looking for (and we’re very happy about it!)

The Core Mechanics:
Shooting, Shielding, Passing, and Restoring.

Our Inspiration
MMORPG’s Triad
Resident Evil 5 Co-op Elements
Overwatch’s Co-op Interactions (Between Healers and Tanks)

Art Style, and Narrative:
Digimon- aside from just nostalgia- Twinkle Torch’s Core identity revolves around the concept of “partnership”.
This is the very core of Twinkle Torch’s vision as a game.
We believe that this game can give that ultimate “I’m your partner” fantasy!
