Independent game studio Clever Plays today announced it will be showcasing its upcoming game Operation: Tango, winner of the Gamescom 2020 Best Multiplayer Game Award, at PAX Online starting tomorrow, September 12th through the 20th. The espionage-themed asymmetrical cooperative adventure game will be coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Operation: Tango- related activities throughout the show include developer AMA, a free downloadable PC demo (available on Steam), scheduled gameplay streams, and interview opportunities. All of the PAX Online activities can be viewed at the Clever Plays digital booth on the Indies Show floor.
Operation: Tango takes an innovative approach to the co-op game genre, requiring two players to truly collaborate closely, with one in the role of “Agent” and the other in the role of “Hacker”. Constantly 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 they overcome the many challenges that stand between them and completing each mission. Clever Plays recently kicked off its “It Takes Two to Save the World” charity campaign benefitting Oxfam’s global fight against poverty. For each person that downloads the Operation: Tango demo, recruits a friend, records their play experience, and shares it with Clever Plays, a donation of $5.00 USD will be made in each player’s name, up to $3,000. Details of the campaign can be found at www.operation-tango.com/charity/.
