It Takes Two was the surprise hit of 2021, so is it any wonder it stuck with fans so effortlessly? The title's immeasurable charm made it an absolute winner with gamers and newcomers alike, and the sweet narrative was more than enough to engage any kind of audience.

The game showed appeal to seasoned gamers and total newcomers invited in by their friends. As such, It Takes Two opened a whole new world for so many. The game is wonderful, and it certainly earned its title of Game of the Year at 2021's Game Awards. And now, the story that has given the IP so much sticking power is set to spread its wings and soar to new heights.

Hazelight Studios, the team behind It Takes Two, is now preparing to adapt the game for the screen. The team of devs are working with Sonic The Hedgehog's co-producer Dmitri M. Johnson and dj2 Entertainment to bring the game to both series and movie formats.

Though studios and networks are yet to get involved, Sonic writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller are attached, assuring that the story's adaptation is in safe hands. It's good to see that writers who have proven themselves to be good at adapting video games are involved, and it serves as some assurance that It Takes Two shouldn't have a rocky launch into the worlds of film and TV.

Josef Fares - "The Potential Is Huge"

Josef Fares is the much-loved founder of Hazelight Studio and s clearly excited for the game's expansion into a new medium. Namely, he thinks this is a great opportunity for It Takes Two to come to the mainstream.

"Creating the world and story from It Takes Two was so much fun for me and the team. Since it has a strong narrative with many crazy characters and just as crazy co-op moments, the potential is huge for a great adaptation to film or television," says Fares.

It Takes Two's journey to the big (or small) screen is exciting for the game, and it gives the wonderful tale a chance to reach an all-new audience. This is a move that Fares and Hazelight Studio deserve for their incredible work on the game - and it could make It Takes Two a huge cultural phenomenon. Here's hoping, eh?
