Notably, many couples enjoyed the game.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed the game so much up to the elephant scene. It ruined the game for us. I can’t stop crying and we can’t play it anymore. This is the worst scene I have ever seen in a video game. We cannot sympathize with sadists.

A fan has speculated that “It Takes Two” derives its popularity from its unique cooperative structure.
You are one of the very few studios that still maintain local co-op (couch co-op) in addition to online co-op, which maximizes the console experience. #It takes two is the perfect example.
Never stop making local co-op games like this. It gave us lasting butterfly sensations.
