The team behind the games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus have revealed their new project which seems to be named Trico. The game features a boy and a creature that resembles a mouse with wings. The video shows off some very vague gameplay of the two heros exploring a variety of locations from caves to mountains. No word on any details however, so many are anticipating what the game will be like when it is fully revealed at E3.
For those of you who don’t know the games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus they were both very unique games and were highly rated but suffered from relatively poor sales. However their poor sales were understandable, Ico put you in the role of a boy who needed to rescue and escort a girl out of a castle, there was no story or reason for the game’s events and neither character spoke. Shadow of the Colossus again put you in the role of a nameless boy whose job it was to rescue a girl this time by defeating 16 colossi, again the story and events of the game are barely given to the player. I personally played both games and enjoyed them a lot, they both offer gaming experience that no other game came close to giving. It appears Trico will be just as unique as the these games were and hopefully appeal to a broader audience so Team Ico can get the full recognition it deserves.
